Glycolic Acids stimulate collagen
Did you know that as we age our cells stop turning over as quickly leading to dull skin? Think of your skin at 16 versus now….Don’t be sad because there is a very easy fix. Retinoids and Alpha Beta Hydroxly Acids assist in a glowing complexion and current skincare products are loaded with these! Glycolic Acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid, works by stimulating new growth of skin and collagen by decreasing the bond that holds dead skin cells on the surface. Dead cells slough off gradually, leaving behind a layer of smoother and softer skin.
Similarly, products with retinol are also helpful for anti-aging. Retinoids trigger the top skin cells to slough off and reveal brand new skin. Retinol products also stimulate collagen and are the only products approved for photo-aging.
