Exfoliating the skin on a regular basis removes dead and damaged epidermal cells. This exposes new vibrant cells below, and prepares the skin for moisturizing and other helpful treatments. Using alpha-hydroxy-acids to dislodge and peel away old cells is safe, convenient, and an effective method of skin exfoliation. Glow is a reliable, exfoliating product that uses three variant forms of alpha-hydroxy acids. Glycolic Acid, Pyruvic Acid and Lactic Acid provides high quality exfoliation in a nourishing and penetrating gel. Using Xanthan Gum as a base, Glow gel is more evenly spread over a wider surface area to coat the skin. This provides a more thorough and effective exfoliation experience.
Glycolic acid occurs naturally as a trace component in sugarcane, grapes and other fruits. It is one of the smallest molecules with acid functionality, which easily penetrates the skin. This useful organic acid reacts with the upper layer of the epidermis by weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold dead skin cells together, dislodging them to reveal fresh new cells beneath. Lactic Acid is another excellent alpha-hydroxy acid that usually occurs in sour milk, but is also found in molasses due to partial conversion of sugars in apples and other fruits. It is also very effective at exfoliating and softening the surface. Pyruvic Acid is the third alpha-hydroxy acid included in this superb formula. As an intermediate in sugar metabolism found in Cane sugar juice and a precursor to lactic acid, Pyruvic acid is excellent for treating oily and problematic skin with excellent dead skin removal abilities. Xanthan Gum is used to acquire the gel texture which can be spread over a large surface area. This optimizes the exfoliating environment, making it easy to apply and smooth and soothing to the touch.
Morning or Evening, dispense a small amount of Glow to your fingertips and smooth over entire face and neck. Leave on for 1 to 3 minutes, depending on tolerance. Rinse with warm water to neutralize the solution. For best results, follow with a Moisturizer.
