What is Glycolic acid?
Glycolic acid is an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane that is exceptional at dissolving the bonds that hold dead skin cells together and resurfacing the skin.
Not only does it help to improve your skin’s texture, it also boosts moisture levels in your skin, as well as brightness.
Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant that helps to tackle problems like pigmentation, sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring and dehydration.
What Skin Types Should Use Alpha-H Liquid Gold?
What is Alpha-H Liquid Gold? Well, it is an exfoliating tonic best for those with mature (30+) skin types as this serum has anti-aging benefits that will brighten and firm the skin over time.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold contains 5% Glycolic acid and is well suited to normal-dry skin types, as it helps to boost moisture levels in the skin.
While Alpha-H Liquid Gold helps to improve acne scarring and congestion, those with oily-combination skin types will also benefit from treatments containing Salicylic acid, which helps to decongest pores and balance oil production, like the Alpha-H Clear Skin Tonic.
Those with sensitive skin may find products with Glycolic acid irritating and should opt for something with something milder like Lactic acid.
