It is also known to increase the cell turnover while removing dead skin cells and free radicals from your skin. Moreover, it has complexion and texture improving properties which is why it is widely used in masks and toners. With the ability to reduce dark spots and acne, glycolic acid is really a star ingredient when it comes to clean skincare!!
