As we all know that Glycolic acid is an exfoliator, but did you know that it is best for sensitive, dry, flaky skin, you don’t need to ditch your favorite exfoliating acid in the wintertime. In fact, it could be the key to smooth, glowing skin during this season.
We follow skin routine as the season changes throughout the year (like exfoliating fall’s to get rid of dead skin cell buildup from excess sebum in the summer, slathering on thick moisturizers in the winter to combat dryness, and so on). Glycolic acid helps to prevent rashes and excess oil or excess dryness to form on the face, resulting in much clean and glowing skin.
In fact, cutting back on chemical exfoliants in the winter and only relying on super-thick balms and creams to keep our dry skin under control can lead to an excess buildup of product and dead skin cells, clogged pores, and congested skin. How can you help your complexion out? By continuing to use mild chemical exfoliants in the market this winter to speed up your skin’s natural cell turnover where comes into play our OLAMOR Pristine 10% Glycolic acid face wash which is a mild exfoliator. The process of exfoliating, and sloughing off dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface, causing rough texture and a dull complexion. So, yes despite what you may have heard, glycolic acid is not a summer-only addition to your skincare routine.
What is Glycolic acid?
Glycolic acid is a mild exfoliator and falls under the alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) family of chemical exfoliants and is the smallest of the group, which also includes lactic, citric, and malic acids. Glycolic acid dissolves the bonds between skin cells, allows you to slough away the dead skin cells that sit on top, resulting in clearer, more glowing skin. It also has impressive anti-aging and acne-fighting properties, thanks to its ability to speed up skin cell turnover rate.

What can you expect?
You’ll notice that your skin looks clean, fresh, and feels softer, especially in the forehead and cheek area, an area that’s prone to excess sebum production and clogged pores. After a week, you’ll see that your complexion is visibly brighter even in the winter, and after two weeks, dark spots which can often sneak up on us in the winter, when our skin is generally paler, making them more noticeable will appear faded.
