AHA Glycolic Acid

Glycolic acid products for discolouration.

Is glycolic acid an
AHA?

Exfoliation is an essential step in your skincare routine. AHA
(glycolic acid) exfoliants work to gently remove the top, dead layer of skin,
rather than using scrubs to slough off the skin, glycolic acid helps to
dissolve the glue like bond that holds on the dead skin to the surface, it’s a
more effective way to exfoliate and gives even results.

Regular use of a glycolic acid AHA exfoliator will also enhance
the efficacy (effectiveness) of the other products in your routine as they will
be absorbed faster and won’t need to penetrate a layer of dead skin cells
first.

Different types of AHAs

 BHA exfoliants such as salicylic acid work within the pores
while AHA exfoliants mainly work on the skin's surface making them particularly
suitable for blemished skin, dry skin, hyperpigmentation, discolouration and
age spots. There are various alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), at Bravura London our
favourites are Glycolic acid and Lactic acid.

How to use and buy AHA glycolic acid exfoliant products

Are you looking for a product with glycolic acid? Take a look at
our range of AHA exfoliants. From chemical peels to cleanser and toners, gels
and moisturisers, find the AHA product that is most suited to your skin
complaint and lifestyle.

How should you exfoliate?

If you are new to using glycolic acid exfoliators, start with a
lower percentage, you also don’t want a routine full of exfoliators, choose
between a chemical peel or a product you’d use daily. Apply after cleansing.
Our chemical peels are best applied with a brush or fingers, don’t use a cotton
pad, this will waste the product. Use a glycolic acid gel or glycolic acid
moisturiser
after cleansing and toning, for dry skin follow with a moisturiser.
Apply over the entire face, avoiding the eye area. You do not need to rinse off
glycolic acid toners, gels or moisturisers. During the day, follow with a
moisturiser that contains a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF of at least 30.
