Courtney Sykes’ Resurgence Molecules are a preferable skin exfoliator thanks to the unique qualities of Glycolic Acid and it’s thin penetrable molecular structure. Glycolic Acid is a stable and reliable skin exfoliation ingredient, which formulated at 7.5%, provides a safe, yet effective exfoliating experience. Glycolic Acid is the smallest of the alpha hydroxy acids. This ensures a water-thin viscosity for widespread coverage and gentle application.
Exfoliating with Glycolic Acid helps improve the skin’s texture and appearance. The removal of dead and dull skin cells exposes radiant new skin below and promotes healthy new collagen growth. It helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve your appearance.
Glycolic Acid occurs naturally as a trace component in sugarcane, grapes and other fruits. As the first in the alpha-hydroxy carboxylic acids, 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.
As the smallest alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) this acid is highly soluble in water, resulting in a water-thin product. This thin nature delivers a soft and simple exfoliation experience, with optimal results.
Courtney’s Application Recommendations: Saturate gauze pad or cotton round with Resurgence Molecules and gently buff skin. Rinse with cool water to neutralize. Follow with a Courtney Sykes Nourishing Serum or Nourishing Cream.
