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. Yes...it 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.
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?
