Facial cream with glycolic acid – how to use it?

Glycolic acid is a widely utilized ingredient in various skincare products, found in both professional cosmetology treatments and home care products.


Among all AHA-acids, glycolic acid has the smallest molecule size (76.05 g/mol), which allows it to penetrate into the deep layers of the epidermis. Glycolic acid is successfully used in many cosmetology products due to its multifunctional effect:

  • Keratolytic effect – destroys connections between horny scales, which promotes their exfoliation. Loosens keratinized pore openings of sebaceous glands, cleans pores from excess sebum.
  • Rejuvenation – stimulates the activity of fibroblasts, activates collagen synthesis. Promotes the growth of new cells and has a smoothing effect, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Improves skin tone and microrelief.
  • Moisturizing effect – stimulates the synthesis of hyaluronic acid in the epidermal and dermal layers, which binds and retains water in the skin, increases its hydration level and reduces transepidermal moisture loss. Using an 8% solution of glycolic acid increases the skin’s ability to absorb and retain moisture by 60-70%.
  • Evens skin tone – glycolic acid is effective in treating hyperpigmentation, post-acne spots. According to clinical studies, glycolic acid in the amount of 300-500 μg/ml inhibits melanin synthesis without harming cell growth. It inhibits the enzyme tyrosinase. At a concentration of 10% and above, it exfoliates colored keratinocytes.
  • Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action – reduces production of inflammatory mediators. Cleans pores, preventing the appearance of comedones, black spots and inflammatory elements. Glycolic acid eliminates hyperkeratosis, normalizes sebum secretion due to its indirect effect on the differentiation of keratinocytes, which allows its use in acne treatment protocols.


Glycolic acid is included in various skincare products: peels, lotions, serums, creams. Its concentration in professional cosmetics varies from 2 to 70%.

REVIT AHA CREAMReactivating cream with glycolic acid 15% contains this AHA acid in the highest concentration among Reneo Cosmetics products. Let’s delve deeper into the characteristics and benefits of using this cream for gentle renewal and antioxidant protection of the skin.

Can REVIT AHA CREAM be used in sunny weather?

The cream contains 15% glycolic acid and ascorbyl tetrapalmitate, which block tyrosinase and the synthesis of melanin, respectively. You can use the cream on days of high UV activity. We apply the cream at night, and use sunscreen during the day. If the client plans to sunbathe, it’s advisable to refrain from active use of the product two weeks before and after prolonged sun exposure. The same applies to laser treatments.

Can REVIT AHA CREAM be used with retinol?

For an intense whitening, revitalizing effect, you can enhance the effect of the cream with HPR SERUM in the evening. When applied, a slight tingling sensation is possible. It is very important to monitor the current condition of the skin: if the client has tight and dry skin, the serum should be used less often or they should take a break for a few days.

Can REVIT AHA CREAM be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

Usually, glycolic acid applied to the skin in the form of cosmetic products is not absorbed into the bloodstream. Molecules have a limited ability to penetrate the skin barrier. But absorption also depends on many factors, including the area of the treated skin surface, its condition. If the skin has a lot of damage to the skin barrier, it is not recommended to apply REVIT AHA CREAM.

Are there any contraindications for specific patients when using REVIT AHA CREAM?

Contraindications for the use of REVIT AHA CREAM include skin diseases, wounds, burns or allergic reactions to acids. If there is a history of allergic reactions, before using, it is recommended to conduct a skin sensitivity test and gradually introduce the drug, starting with 1-2 times a week with a gradual increase.

Is REVIT AHA CREAM only suitable for ageing skin?

The cream has a mild keratolytic effect, eliminating hyperkeratosis (thickening of the horny layer of the skin). Achieving the desired effect often involves the elimination of various factors, a primary task for cosmetologists. Hyperkeratosis is observed on the surface of the skin with manifestations of rashes of any genesis, with a change in color, microrelief, including the expansion of pores and dermal folds. Therefore, it is necessary to prescribe REVIT AHA CREAM according to indications, and not only in cases of correction of age changes.

Can REVIT AHA CREAM be used permanently?

The duration and frequency of prescriptions directly correlate with the clinical presentation and the specific needs of the skin. Cell division, thickening of the stratum corneum occurs daily and requires constant monitoring. Following an intensive 60-day course of nightly application, transitioning to a maintenance regimen of 2-3 times per week is recommended.

Can REVIT AHA CREAM dry the skin?

The cream contains fat-soluble forms of vitamin C and vitamin E, without disturbing the balance of fatty acids on the surface of the skin. If signs of tightness and dryness of the skin occur during an intensive course, particularly when combined with other active components, it is advisable to incorporate Lipid Balancing Light Cream. This combination helps restore the skin’s lipid mantle, effectively preventing transepidermal moisture loss.

REVIT AHA CREAM has a pH of 4.0, will it cause peeling?

According to research, the pH level of acids affects the intensity of exfoliation. At a pH of 3.0 and above, visible peeling is not observed, at most a light rolling of keratinized cells may appear. REVIT AHA CREAM can be used without fear of intensive peeling.
