This is so true. I’ve made so many skin care mistakes because I didn’t have anyone to learn from. I don’t want you to keep making mistakes out of confusion or lack of information. That’s why it’s so important for me to share my skin-clearing journey and best tips, tricks, hacks, and above all, RESEARCH. I base all my recommendations and advice on research and experimentation backed by research...over a decade worth of RESEARCH. I don’t take skincare personally or blindly believe in one method over another, I’m open to learning new information and adjusting my approach accordingly. You should too. Don’t get stuck believing that skincare is toxic and avoiding it based on an inaccurate presumption. Don’t get stuck believing that your skin absorbs things and thereby using food on your face instead of real products. I could go on and on with the myths out there. Learn from my mistakes. ❤️I have an awesome video series called 10 Days Of Busting Beauty Myths that dispel so many of the misconceptions about #skinhealth — Link is in my PROFILE 🙌❤️😉
Two of the most common acids used in skin care are glycolic acid and salicylic acid. While these acids are both chemical exfoliants they serve different purposes to treat different skin conditions. .
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is good for dry, anti aging skin because it exfoliates the surface and locks in moisture. Glycolic is the smallest acid so it can penetrate the skin with ease and create dramatic results. It exfoliates the skins surface by dissolving the top layer of skin cells causing the skin to start to rebuild itself (on a microscopic level). .
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that is preferred for oily or acne prone skin. Salicylic acid can break down oil and exfoliate skin deep in the pore. This makes is great for killing off bacteria that cause blackheads and Whitehead’s and fighting off excess oil! Salicylic acid is more aggressive than Glycolic so be weary when using too many products with this ingredient as you don’t want to overwork or dry out your skin. .
And remember to USE YOUR SPF especially if you add one of these acids into your regimen☀️
