GLYCOLIC derived from SUGARCANE The Secret to Youthful skin.
We are told sugar is not good for us internally so let’s slap it on our skin as sugarcane is a natural glycolic acid and the key ingredient in anti-aging skincare.
As we age our skin starts to look dull, firmness disappears and the youthful glow is diminishing.
Our facial skin is made up of three layers the epidermis (what we see), dermis (the middle layer) and subcutaneous layer (the third layer). Our skin, due to shedding of skin cells, replaces itself every 7 years. Your skin sheds every 28-45 days, rejuvenating the epidermis and allowing the next generation of skin cells to come forward. We shed about 18 kilogram of skin in a lifetime!
We get a buildup of dead skin cells, this makes our skin look tired, uneven tone, pigmentation and fine wrinkles may appear. With younger skin types they get blocked pores that forms pimples and then scar tissue.
Glycolic Acids have caused a sensation recently as anti-wrinkle active ingredients. They loosen the intercellular ‘glue’, allowing new cells to come through more rapidly and stimulate the formation of collagen and elastin. The visible effect is a skin which looks fresher and younger. Glycolic acids help remove the surface skin cells, improving skin texture and colour. Skin is left feeling plump and glowing as the new skin layers are revealed.
When buying a Glycolic skincare product check the levels of active ingredient. If the percentage of glycolic is not on the label don’t waste your money. For ultimate results glycolic 5% in cleanser and 10+% in serums.
