Dull skin is an increasingly common skin focus. Why? Because our skin is constantly exposed to brightness blockers. Pollution, stress, fast food, poor make-up removal or an inconsistent skincare routine, can all lead to a “wall” of brightness blockers on our skin.
Glycolic Acid for Brighter Skin
Glycolic Acid is a leading ingredient for treating skin dullness. Firstly, because it’s an exfoliant and will remove the build-up of dulling dead skin cells. Secondly, it’s the most potent of the family of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs). Because of its small molecular size, it’s able to penetrate the skin’s surface rapidly and “unglue” brightens blockers, revealing a more luminous, healthy-looking skin.
Balancing Skin Health with Glycolic Acid
Using a Glycolic Acid based cleanser is an effective way to treat skin dullness and achieve a daily glow. However, as it’s a powerful AHA, the balance between Glycolic Acid and other ingredients it's formulated alongside, needs to be carefully considered. Otherwise, you could end up with an overly intensive cleanser that causes irritation and worsens skin dullness.
Brighter Skin Without Compromise
With a commitment to skin health and results, Dermalogica has launched a Glycolic Acid based cleanser that brightens and conditions the skin! Introducing NEW Daily Glycolic Cleanser, a gentle yet effective, gel-based cleanser that washes away brightness blockers daily, without compromise.
Blending Glycolic Acid with gentle surfactants (cleansing agents) and conditioning botanical ingredients, Daily Glycolic Cleanser delivers on brighter skin without stripping the skin’s moisture barrier. It's gentle and nourishing and leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft.
Key Ingredients in Daily Glycolic Cleanser:
- Glycolic Acid effectively “unglues,” surface dulling skin cells to reveal brighter skin.
- Calendula Extract is derived from the Marigold flower and is known for its calming and healing properties.
- Jojoba Oil has soothing and repairing effects while deeply nourishing skin.
Daily Glycolic Cleanser is suitable for anyone looking to manage skin dullness. And ideal for a savvy skincare user wanting to increase exfoliation in their skincare regimen or for someone wanting a 2-1 advanced cleanser.
How to Use Daily Glycolic Cleanser
Daily Glycolic Cleanser can be used both morning and night, ideally after using a pre-cleansing formula such as PreCleanse. Apply a blueberry sized amount of Daily Glycolic Cleanser onto a damp face and neck and gently massage for 1 - 2 minutes, avoiding the eye area. Rinse away with lukewarm water or a cleansing cloth and follow with your finishing skincare. Be sure to wear sunscreen during the daytime.
