It's all about Acids when it comes to healthier-looking skin

If you're looking to maximize your skincare regimen any time of year, you may want to have a look at adding some acids. Though you may think of harsh, stripping chemicals when you hear the term "acids," think again. For beauty insiders, today's best skincare is all about acids. Acids can help with everything from brightening skin to reducing the look of pores to radiance and moisturizing.

In short, an acid addition can provide the transformational boost you need to rev up your routine. Here are our top picks from our own Advanced Hydration and Advanced Resurfacing collections: 

If your skin feels a bit rough or in need of some get-up and glow, our new Daily Reveal™ Exfoliating Pads boost skin's natural exfoliation rate in just three days* for clarified, smooth,​ visibly brightened skin. Our unique treatment delivers both chemical exfoliation with four types of acids, plus physical exfoliation with a micro-peel fiber pad. Designed to gently remove dead skin cells for the ultimate resurfacing to even skin tone for a glowing complexion. Also great for reducing the appearance of pores and blackheads.

Often referred to as the "holy grail" of acids, Glycolic Acid holds the key to visibly younger and tighter looking skin. It also restores glow and refines pores. Our Glycolic Skin Reset Mask gently exfoliates to reveal glowing, radiant skin. Used 2-3 times a week, and for just 5 minutes, this self-care quickie brightens, restores radiance to reveal smoother, softer skin. A great mask when you want a fast pick me up/glow on the go for that vital video call or date night.

Are you looking to tune in to a good toner? You may think toners dry out the skin and are too harsh, but toners help hydrate and balance skin by and delivering hydration and so much more. Our take on toner is all about dewy, healthy-looking skin, so check out our Tri-Phase Daily Glow Toner, a 3-in-1 daily toner is the secret to a glowing complexion. A blend of skin-transforming acids  like Mandelic Acid, a go-to anti-ager, and nourishing botanical extracts come together in this three-phase formula to smooth, hydrate and brighten for a radiant, lit-from-within glow. 

If your skin needs some much-needed moisture, Hyaluronic Acid should be your new go-to ingredient. Found naturally in the skin, Hyaluronic Acid diminishes with age and over time, which leads to dehydration and the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Add to your regimen if you see dull, dehydrated skin with no glow, or your moisturizer isn't cutting it. Our Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum rehydrates and replumps skin to bring it back to life. A good rule of thumb is to cleanse, tone, and then apply a serum.

In terms of use, be mindful of layering too many exfoliating acids at once.
