[Grazia UK] What Exactly Do Percentages In Our Serums And Creams Really Mean? And Do They Matter?

21th July, 2020
Mandelic Acid



Derived from bitter almonds, mandelic is the newest exfoliating acid on the block. It differs from glycolic because its molecule size is twice as big, so it takes longer to penetrate the skin and therefore negates any irritation. It's perfect for those who have never tried acids before, but don't be fooled by its softly-softly approach – it's been championed by cystic acne sufferers for years. It's also promising for those with darker skin tones because, unlike other acids, it doesn't cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. First-timers should seek out By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water(£32.20). It can be used daily and is strong enough to boost radiance. To banish breakouts, you'll need to up the ante to 10 percent. However, Dr. Sarah Shah explains that it can be counterproductive to go any higher. 'You're better off using a lower strength 5 percent glycolic,' she says. Garden of Wisdom 10% Mandelic Acid Serum (£9), is a long-term clarifier that blitzes dirt from pores. Apply two to three times a week, post-cleansing, and leave on for 20 minutes before moisturising to allow for penetration.


By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water is available on Wishtrend.com or on Skinsider in UK.
