Get Summer Face + Neck Skin In Shape With Tingling Nighttime Glycolic AHAs

Summertime is a blast for sure, but it's also the season where we probably do MOST damage, namely because we're in the SUN a lot.

You can wait until autumn to repair your skin, but I say to focus on healthy complexions NOW.

If you want FAST, noticeable results, then go for the AHAs or alpha hydroxy acids.
One of my FAVES---glycolic acid. tingles, stings, even burns at times, but it WILL in time:

1. Clear complexion.
2. Smooth and balance skin tone.
3. Soften texture of face + neck.
4. Minimize appearance of pores.
5. Diminish appearance of spots, scars, fine lines + wrinkles.
6. Add a bit of firmness to skin.
7. Exfoliate well to get rid of dead skin cells.
8. Brighten and add a radiant glow.

What's NOT to LOVE about a beauty routine you wear to bed at night?

I am going to give you 2 brands to consider, one high end, the other low end. Both glycolic-based nighttime skin care products are impressive.

 I LOVE glycolic acid, even MORE than Vitamin C serum. Works BETTER for my skin.

Let me add this little piece of advice:

Go slowly when starting a beauty routine with AHAs, like glycolic acid, lactic acid, etc. They can be tough on the face + neck.....and should be used sparingly, until your skin gets used to the product's power.

OLE HENRIKSEN Invigorating Night Treatment™ ($48, at Sephora).

This amazing product features a light gel full of 12 AHA complexes, with glycolic acid topping the list of ingredients.

Reviva Labs, 10% Glycolic Acid Cream ($18.85, at iHerb).

This inexpensive nighttime glycolic acid cream is another excellent choice. It also comes in a 5% glycolic base for those who might wish to begin their routine gently.

Like good glycolic formulas, this one also offers fine texturizing benefits for aging, sun-damaged, or blemished skin.

I'm an AHA believer.....How about you?

thanks for the 2 choices here. i would probably have to start out with the 5% becuase my complexion is sooooooo sensitive. if you tell me this stuff works, then i believe you beautytiptoday.

Longtime user of AHAs. Fantastic stuff, especially for trying to undo all that sun damage in my 20s.
