Putting acid on your skin might sound scary, but many of your beauty besties will likely contain varieties of acid that are sourced directly from natural substances. In fact, ‘acids’ are having a moment in our skin care conscience, with more and more of us seeking out their benefits. Some of the most recognisable are lactic acid (found in milk), malic (fruit) and salicylic acid (tree bark).
All of these are part of an elite group of gentle, skin-perfecting miracle workers called AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), the queen of these being glycolic acid, which comes from sugar cane. It’s the main act in S&G’s new In the Glow How™ 5% Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Tonic, which also contains cooling chamomile, known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Glycolic acid is particularly brilliant for wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation and acne-prone skin. Older skin benefits from regular use too, because as we age our skin sheds less frequently (which is why older skin can often appear dull or dry).
Our supersonic tonic is a fantastic glow-giver for all skin types – it will leave skin feeling super soothed, smoothed and radiant, as well as reducing the appearance of pores.
For such a high-achieving product, it couldn’t be easier to use! Once a day, after cleansing with Glow Your Mind™ Nourishing Cleansing Balm, soak a cotton pad with In the Glow How™ and sweep over your face. Allow a few minutes for the tonic to completely absorb into your skin before you apply moisturiser. We recommend finishing your skin routine with a layer of sunscreen as all products containing glycolic acid can cause sensitivities to sun exposure.
Expect to feel a mild tingling sensation when you use In The Glow How™; that’s a sign of all the good stuff getting to work. All you have to do is sit back and watch miracles happen. Mind blown.Back to Blog
