Glycolic Acid Toner: The Exfoliating All Star

Glycolic acid is the exfoliating all star your skin care routine has been waiting for. This powerful alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) works wonders by removing dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. The result? Tighter pores, brighter skin, and a more even complexion.

When you use Bake's 5% Glycolic Acid Toning Solution, the dead skin cells on the surface of your skin are dissolved, allowing new cell turnover to speed up. This process removes pore-clogging debris and oil, unclogs pores, reduces blackheads, and leaves you with a radiant glow. Your skin will appear smoother, firmer and fresher after just one use.

  1. To use a glycolic acid toner, start by cleansing your face to remove any makeup or oil.
  2. Then, soak a cotton pad in the toner and sweep it over your face, avoiding the eye area.
  3. Let it dry completely. Follow up with a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.
  4. Use the toner 1-2 times a week, slowly increasing frequency as your skin adjusts.
  5. You may experience slight tingling at first, but this should subside.

For the best results, use a glycolic acid toner consistently and be patient. It can take 4 to 6 weeks of regular use to see significant changes in your skin. But trust us, the wait will be worth it! Tighter pores, fading acne scars and fine lines, and an overall bright glow - your skin will look radiant and rejuvenated thanks to this exfoliating all star. This toning solution gives you professional results at home. Your skin will thank you!

Benefits of Using Glycolic Acid Toner

Using Bake's 5% Glycolic Acid Toning Solution is one of the best ways to boost your skincare routine. This powerhouse ingredient gently exfoliates your skin to reveal a bright, glowing complexion and tighter-looking pores.

Clearer, Brighter Skin

Glycolic acid removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, sweeping away dullness and discoloration. With regular use, it fades hyperpigmentation like age spots and acne scars. It also boosts collagen production, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Say hello to a smoother, more radiant complexion!

Unclogged, Minimized Pores

Glycolic acid is oil soluble, meaning it can penetrate deep into pores to clear out built-up oil, dirt and debris. By removing this pore-clogging junk, it helps reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and blackheads. Your skin will feel fresher and look more even-toned.

Increased Product Absorption

Exfoliation with glycolic acid creates a smooth canvas so your other skincare products can absorb better. Serums, moisturizers and treatments work more effectively when there are no dead skin cells acting as a barrier. You'll get the most out of all your products with the help our 5% Glycolic Acid Toning Solution.

Using the toning solution 2-3 times a week is enough to see real results. Start slowly to allow your skin to adjust, then you can build up frequency. Follow up the toner with a hydrating serum and moisturizer. Be patient through the initial irritation phase, and soon you'll be loving your tight pores, bright skin and smooth complexion thanks to this exfoliating all star!

How to Use Glycolic Acid Toner for Tight Pores

Once you've cleansed your face, it's time to bring out the big guns - 5% Glycolic Acid Toning Solution! This product is about to become your skin's new best friend. Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that exfoliates the outer layer of your skin, removing dead cells and unclogging pores. The result? Tighter pores, smoother skin, and a glow that just won't quit.

How to Use

To use our glycolic acid toner:

  • Apply the toner to a cotton pad and sweep it across your face, neck, and chest. Don't rinse off.
  • Start slowly, using the toner 2-3 times a week. As your skin adjusts, you can work your way up to daily use. This allows your skin to get accustomed to the exfoliating effects and avoid irritation.
  • Be patient through the “purging” period. As the toner speeds up cell turnover, it may cause already-clogged pores to come to the surface. This usually only lasts a week or two. Push through - the results are worth it!
  • Moisturize immediately after applying the toner. Glycolic acid can be drying, so hydrating your skin is key. Look for a moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid to plump up skin cells.
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily. Glycolic acid makes your skin more sensitive to sun damage, so sun protection is a must. Aim for an SPF 30 or higher.
  • Consider “glycolic boosters” 1-2 times a week. For an extra exfoliating boost, apply your glycolic acid treatment, wait 20 minutes, then apply your toner. Your skin will be baby soft in no time!

Our toning solution delivers real results. Be consistent and patient, and get ready for tighter pores, fading acne scars and age spots, reduced fine lines, and an overall glow. This all-star product deserves a permanent spot in your skincare routine!

This powerful AHA gently removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin to unclog pores, smooth texture, and boost radiance. Using it consistently will transform your oily, combination skin.

  • Cleanse your face and pat dry with a towel. Do not rinse after cleansing.
  • Pour a quarter-sized amount of glycolic acid toner onto a cotton pad.
  • Gently wipe the pad over your entire face, including your forehead, nose, cheeks, chin, and neck.
  • Avoid the eye area. Rinse immediately if product gets into eyes.
  • Let the toner dry completely. Follow with a moisturizer suitable for your skin type.
  • You may experience slight tingling, stinging or redness. This is normal and will subside quickly. If irritation persists, reduce use.
  • Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 when using glycolic acid toner. Your skin will be more sensitive to sun damage.
