Glycolic Acid- The Saviour to your Skincare Routine!

Leave a Comment


Hi Showstoppers!

SO, I have been prone to posting a few makeup free selfies on my Instagram and Facebook lately because I am SO pleased with the condition of my skin right now.

I have been religiously using Glycolic Acid products for around 3 months now and the difference to my skin is fantastic!

The texture and surface of my skin that was once severly dry and flakey with a scaley like feel to it, is now smooth soft with a natural glow to it.

THIS. NEVER.HAPPENS.ME!

I highly recommend that you think about incorporating this skincare gem into your daily routine as soon as possible.

What is Glycolic Acid?

In short, it is an exfoliator.

  • It is naturally derived from sugar cane but can also be created synthetically with todays technology.
  • It is one of the safest forms of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and is particularly suitable for acne and problem prone skin.
  • Glycolic Acid exfoliates surface of the skin, removing dead skin cells and creating a smoother, fresher complexion.
  • It is also beneficial in aiding with anti ageing and can help to brighten and fade dark spots!

The two products which I have been using are from Pixi Beauty and Glotherapuetics.

The Pixi Glow Tonic contains 5% Glycolic Acid and can be used daily, both AM and PM,
This is a great product to start with especially if you are completely new to Glycolic Acid and you can read my review on it by clicking here

The Glotherapuetics Renew Serum contains 7% Glycolic Acid and is for use in the evening only. This is for those of us that want to step up our Glycolic game and opt for something a little stronger.
You can check it out here.


I have actually been using them both but alternating them weekly. you must not use them both at once! It will be too harsh on your skin.

For example, I use my Pixi Tonic morning and evening for 5 days and then skip it for the last 2 days and use the Renew Serum those 2 evenings.

The results I have noticed are fantastic and I haven't been able to stop raving about these two products since I started with them!
