Are the glycolic, mandelic and lactic acids in the mask harmful to my skin? +
The use of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic, mandelic and lactic acids in cosmetics and toiletries is perfectly safe. The ingredients are restricted in their inclusion level to ensure that they are safe to use.
Will using a glycolic mask affect my fake tan? +
It would be good to use MOST REVEALING prior to using an instant fake or self-tan to exfoliate and prep the skin for a nice even application. Using MOST REVEALING after self-tan application would fade your tan faster as would any exfoliating action but it will keep the skin and tan fresh looking and even and ready for a new application.
Will my skin be more prone to sun damage after treating my skin with a glycolic mask? +
Yes, a glycolic mask exfoliates the skin so new skin cells are exposed more quickly. These newer skin cells are more susceptible to damage from UVA and so we highly recommend using a broad spectrum sunscreen with UVA filters during use and when you skin is in daylight - LIFE DEFENCE is of course the best to reach for and will ensure your skin stays protected. If using MOST REVEALING at night then there is no need to add a sunscreen afterwards. The product does carry a sun risk warning to flag this. It's great at making skin shiny and new but you’ll need a SPF to protect it.
