My skin is super sensitive! Can I use Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic?
It’s often tricky to exfoliate a more sensitised skin, as traditional AHAs like Glycolic can often 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.
If your skin is particularly sensitive or sensitised, we recommend trying out our Evercalm range first to strengthen your skin, and to be aware of what other products you might be using that are stimulating your skin such as exfoliators, cloth cleansers, retinols or vitamin C. It’s worth noting though that 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 colour can be a normal reaction to AHAs and Vitamin C skincare products, redness and burning is not! If you experience that, 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.
