Ingredient Spotlight: Glycolic Acid

Achieve that all-natural glow!

Alpha hydroxy acids are found in many skincare products thanks to their rejuvenating effects— and one of the superstars among the group is glycolic acid. This water-soluble solution is derived from sugarcane and has the smallest molecular size of the AHAs, which means it can more easily penetrate the layers of the skin.

Glycolic acid works primarily, as an exfoliant. “Its ability to exfoliate the skin and build collagen under the skin’s surface helps minimize fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone and texture, and help your skin maintain a youthful glow,” explains Stacey Brisman, MD, board-certified Dermatologist. It is safe for all skin types, especially for those who are oily and acne-prone.

Award-winning Self-Esteem Beauty Sleep Serum transforms your skin while you sleep thanks mostly in part to its highly-concentrated exfoliators that work to stimulate cellular renewal and collagen building. Beauty editors agree! Allure touts “that it might do it ALL” and InStyle boasts “something that works on all fronts is often too good to be true, but Dermelect’s formula draws on the skincare world’s best active ingredients, Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, and Vitamin C to iron out wrinkles!” Simply leave on overnight and in the morning you’ll realize a smoother, more glowing complexion.
