The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% fall into the category of alpha hydroxy acids – well renowned for dissolving the top superficial layer of the skin and revealing the bright, glowy and younger cells beneath. While most ahas can irritate the skin and can cause purging, mandelic acid is the safest alpha hydroxy acid for a beginner and for people with sensitive skin. The molecular weight of mandelic acid is larger than that of other alpha hydroxy acids and this larger size means that it penetrates the skin more slowly. This means that it offers super mild exfoliation that will suit even the most sensitive skin type and will leave skin smooth and more even. The formula is supported with additional Hyaluronic Acid that will hydrate and plump the skin which would take care of the dryness associated with acids.
How to Use:
Apply it in the night after cleansing the face. Acids should always be followed with a sunscreen in the morning.
