My skin is super sensitive! Can I use Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic?
It’s often tricky to exfoliate sensitive skin types, as traditional AHAs like Glycolic Acid work too quickly and result in a stimulation response that a regular skin type wouldn’t experience. For our Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic, we chose to focus on Lactic Acid. Lactic Acid tends to be a larger molecule and therefore takes a little bit longer to work, so it essentially eliminates the skin’s AHA ‘shock’ that other AHA’s can trigger.
Everyone’s skin is different, and you can of course react to any natural ingredient depending on your personal, physiological make-up. So, we always recommend a patch test if you’re concerned about how your skin is going to react to a new formula. While tingling and a slight flush of color can be a normal reaction to AHAs and Vitamin C skincare products, redness and burning is not! If you experience redness or burning, we recommend you stop using the product, or try limiting AHA skincare use to once or twice a week and building up your usage gradually.
