What it is:

Glycolic acid is one of many naturally occurring Alpha Hydroxy Acids. Derived from sugar cane, the small molecular composition of glycolic acid provides the skin with the deepest and quickest penetration of all the other AHA’s.

What it does:

  • Glycolic Acid skin care slows down the aging process of the skin
  • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces skin discolorations and age spots
  • Treats dull and unhealthy-looking skin by creating healthy skin growth and a brighter look
  • Reduces skin blemishes, unsightly pores, and blackheads
  • Reverses and protects against damage caused by sun

How glycolic acid skin care products work:

In the unbuffered state (low pH level), Academy Glycolic Products assist in the shedding of the skin’s dead layer to promote a youthful glow and a much brighter, smoother complexion. In addition, and very importantly, Academy products reverse the aging process of the skin by promoting more collagen cells and restoring bulk and firmness to the skin.

  1. Glycolic acid is the best thing i ever put on my skin. Over the years i have applied many acne creams to my face, resulting in sagging and fine lines. GA got rid of them, as well as my hyperpigmentation left over from pimples. Now if i ever get a spot or closed comedone i apply this and it goes within a day.

    1. I (obviously) completely agree Harriet! Thank you for your comment. I hope to hear from you again soon! Have you been using Academy by Candy products?
