Overuse of any chemical or mechanical exfoliating agent can result in redness or irritation. However, in moderate concentrations, glycolic acid can be well tolerated for nightly use to help facilitate skin's natural exfoliation. When considering a glycolic acid treatment for your skincare routine, it is important to identify the right concentration for your specific skin concern. Concentrations under 4% provide low level exfoliation and may be used once or twice daily depending on the potency and pH value of the formula. Sometimes glycolic acid may be added to acne formulas at lower levels to enhance skin detoxification and turnover. When looking for an effective night-time product that primarily targets visible signs of ageing such as fine lines, dullness, and skin texture, a 4-10% concentration of pure glycolic acid is recommended. Any glycolic acid formulation featuring a concentration above 20% should be recommended and administered by a skincare professional. This includes chemical peels, which may require pre-conditioning and specific post-procedure care, and should only be carried out in a clinic that specialises in skin. Due to the exfoliating nature of glycolic acid, always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day, when using these products.
