Who should use the Sublime Beauty Glycolic Acid Serum?
Anyone who has tired, dull skin, clogged pores or suffers from acne or pigmentation problems can benefit from using this glycolic acid serum. Aged skin also benefits from the exfoliating effect of this serum, as this can help to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, promote collagen production and give you a fresher and more youthful appearance.
How do you use this Glycolic Acid Serum?
Clean your skin and apply a few drops of this serum to your face and neck areas. If you have aging skin you can use this serum about 3 times a week. If you have oily skin you can use it twice daily. For other skin types, use this Alpha Hydroxy Acid serum daily and if your skin is sensitive, it might be wise to perform a spot test before you use this serum on your skin, even though the percentage of glycolic acid is quite low. You can either apply the serum to the entire area or just to specific areas that need attention. You don’t need to wash this serum off your skin, but can let it absorb into your skin.
Sublime Beauty Glycolic Acid Serum Key Ingredients
The Sublime Beauty Glycolic Acid Serum is available in a bottle with pump dispenser – 0.5fl oz (15mls) and is paraben free, not tested on animals and is made in the USA. Key ingredients include 2% Glycolic Acid and 3% Salicylic Acid, and it’s suitable for frequent use, because these concentrations are considered to be low.
Benefits of Glycolic Acid
Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid and depending on its concentration, can either gently remove the dead cells from the top layer of your skin at low concentrations (below 10%) or act more like a microdermabrasion treatment (at concentrations above 10%). Serums that include Glycolic Acid help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as mild hyper-pigmentation in your skin, smoothing the texture and tone of your skin, adding extra definition due to an increase in collagen and minimizing dark spots, age spots and sun spots.
Removing the dead cells from the outer layer of your skin unclogs blocked pores and reduces mild acne and blackheads. Your skin is left looking fresher, cleaner and healthier.
Benefits of Salicylic Acid
Another great exfoliant, Salicylic Acid also removes the dead cells from your skin, but penetrates deeper than glycolic acid and so is more useful in the treatment of acne, whilst also reducing blocked pores and blackheads. It’s also a wonderful ingredient for reducing age spots and sun spots on your skin and evening out your skin tone. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Salicyclic Acid also helps to relieve redness in your skin, which is a big benefit to acne sufferers.
Benefits of Aloe
Used by the ancient Egyptians and famously called the plant of immortality, Aloe aids in cellular repair, and in the treatment of burns and sunburnt skin – helping to relieve redness, itchiness and swelling. Aloe also contains many antioxidants that help to reverse the premature signs of aging, caused by over exposure to UV rays.
Benefits of Witch Hazel
Long known for its anti-inflammatory and astringent properties, Witch Hazel helps to heal your skin from insect bites, cuts and bruises. It’s beneficial in relieving eczema and other dry skin conditions and also helps to reduce the amount of oil in your skin. Witch Hazel is a good ingredient for people suffering from acne, as it reduces the inflammation and helps to heal blemishes.
Does the Sublime Beauty Glycolic Acid Serum really work?
Along with our own experience and the number of great reviews for the Sublime Beauty Glycolic Acid Serum, it’s a great success with everyone. It’s a little pricey however, because it’s only 15ml, not 30ml like many other serums, but when it works well, then it’s worth it! Sublime Beauty also have a range of other serums, which are just as popular with their customers.
