Glycolic acid can have some harsh effects on skin, especially at first. It's best to initiate use slowly, beginning with every other day and increasing over time. Redness and peeling may occur initially but should fade with regular use. For users with darker skin pigmentation, glycolic acid sometimes causes hyperpigmentation. Because of its greater harshness and intensity, glycolic acid is best for oily skin types. The use of a sunscreen is necessary when using AHA products.

This antioxidant superhero is a must to keep skin bright through the long skin-dulling days of winter. Essential for collagen synthesis, vitamin C boosts both quantity and quality of collagen production. It’s also an anti-inflammatory agent and blood vessel strengthener to reduce redness. The powerful photoprotective effects of vitamin C are magnified when paired with vitamin E. Together they protect both the hydrophilic (water) and lipophilic (fat) compartments of the cell to suppress damage and initiate repair. ⠀⠀
