I never knew you could love an acid so much as I do but, I have found my match. A little dramatic, maybe, but who cares. I love mandelic acid and its benefits. Mandelic acid is a powerful exfoliant that helps to brighten and soften the complexion without the irritation of other AHAs. With a higher molecular weight than most AHAs (150.3 daltons versus Glycolic acid’s 75.7 daltons), Mandelic acid penetrates slower into the skin, giving a softer, smoother exfoliation experience and making it suitable for all skin type, including the most sensitive or dry skin. It is a safe and gentle choice for your next facial or other skin treatment.
Mandelic Acid Benefits
It can be found in many skincare products, including creams, serums, moisturizers, and cleansers. It is often combined with other exfoliants like Lactic Acid to provide an even deeper exfoliation to address specific problems like fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation, or acne.
There are several forms of this skincare ingredient. It is commonly found in the form of liquid, gel, or cream and comes in various strengths depending on the manufacturer. The strength and amount you should use depends on how deeply you wish to cleanse your skin and the severity of any blemishes or blemish-prone areas.
Most skincare products containing this ingredient include hyaluronic acid as an ingredient. This helps to ensure that your skin doesn’t over dry.
Mandelic Acid Benefits FOR DARKER SKIN
I have used many acids before but mandelic acid has always worked for me. I mean the results are unreal and my skin never freaks out from it. If you have brown skin, Asian, Arabic, and African skin, mandelic will be the best choice for you as well. Why? Cause as i mentioned since mandelic acid is a large molecule, it penetrates the skin slowly and more gently, with minimized risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The penetration through the skin is even, with no problems of under-peeling in some areas and over-peeling in others.
So why not give it a try. This ingredient has been scientifically proven to penetrate deep into the skin and offer maximum benefits. Below are a few of my favorite products with mandelic acid.
