Glycolic Acid is One of Our Favorite Treatments: Glow Mama, Glow!
- Posted on: May 3 2019
In honor of mother’s day, NDDA is going gaga for glycolic acid! This alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) is having a major Aha! moment. The reason Glycolic acid is our new favorite thing? It treats all of our least favorite things from acne to wrinkles to discoloration, and it’s safe during pregnancy. Read on to learn what excites us most about glycolic acid, and about our product of the month.
Moms to be love glycolic acid to really get their glow on. Glycolic acid is safe during pregnancy, and it tackles common pregnancy skin issues including acne and melasma. Plus, it stimulates collagen which fights wrinkles. Win, win, and win. That’s why we are excited to present Skinceuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight as May’s product of the month and offer it for 15% off the entire month of May.
We love adding glycolic acid to our microdermabrasion treatments for acne fighting and skin brightening all year long. If you commit to a daily broad spectrum sun screen, microdermabrasion with glycolic can be performed in the sunnier months.
Moms appreciate the art of multitasking, and glycolic acid is the multitasker of alpha hydroxy acids. Its small size allows it to penetrate into the skin to stimulate collagen, polish pores, and promote skin cell turnover. The results in fewer breakouts, more vibrant skin, and a more even complexion. Some of us dermatologist moms at NDDA fell so in love with glycolic acid during pregnancy that we have kept it on as a staple in our skin care regimens.
