Pop quiz time: What’s one of the most popular skin care ingredients of the moment, thanks to its ability to help brighten the look of your skin? Answer: Glycolic acid! According to Mayo Clinic, glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that can help remove dead skin cells. How does that translate into a brightened complexion? Well, sloughing away dead skin cell buildup from the surface of your skin can help make skin look more radiant. Want to add skin care products formulated with glycolic acid to your skin care routine? Keep reading to learn about our L'Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal line, which features a variety of skin care products formulated with glycolic acid. Not to mention, some of these skin care products are also formulated with vitamin C—another notable skin care ingredient. Find all the details below.


Chances are you already have enough things to handle in the morning, so we’ll keep this simple for you. Seriously, just two essential steps, featuring skin care products formulated with glycolic acid, to start your day (and your skin care routine) off right.

Step 1: Cleanser. When you wake up in the morning, your first skin care step should be to use a facial cleanser. Formulated with gentle micro-pearls and glycolic acid, the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Scrub Cleanser helps exfoliates dullness and impurities from the surface of your skin to improve skin tone, texture, and clarity, revealing skin that looks brighter. Lather the product into wet hands, gently massaging onto skin in a circular motion, avoiding the delicate eye area. Rinse thoroughly, then pat dry.

Step 2: Moisturizer with SPF. Once you’ve cleansed, it’s an absolute must to pick up a moisturizer. With continued use over time, the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Day Moisturizer SPF 30 (which is formulated with glycolic acid and vitamin C) helps correct the look of dull, uneven tone, lines, and wrinkles to reveal radiant, youthful-looking clarity. For sun protection, apply daily as directed, being sure to reapply regularly throughout the day.

Editor’s note: Keep in mind that AHAs like glycolic acid can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so make sure to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher as directed. Additionally, when you’re using skin care products formulated with glycolic acid, it’s important to take other sun protection measures (such as limiting your amount of time in the sun, seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas).


Your bed may be calling your name, but don’t let your head hit the pillow just yet. Show your skin a little attention first. Just three more steps in your glycolic skin care routine and then you’re free to start catching some shuteye.

Step 1: Cleanser. You can use the same cleanser morning and night. At the end of the day, all of your makeup—and anything else your skin has come into contact with—should be washed off the surface of your skin.

Step 2: Peel pads. Once you’ve cleansed your skin, gently sweep one of the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads over your face in circular motions. These peel pads formulated with glycolic acid help resurface dull, uneven tone and rough texture to reveal youthful-looking skin. The best part: Using a peel pad will only add an extra minute or two to your skin care routine. Well worth it!

Step 3: Overnight moisturizer. Almost done! It’s time to moisturize again. Instead of using a daytime moisturizer with SPF, you’ll want to switch to one meant for nighttime. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Dual Overnight Moisturizer is a dual-action skin care product that combines an exfoliating concentrate formulated with glycolic acid to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin with a brightening infusion formulated with vitamin C that helps enhance skin clarity and reduce the visibility of dark spots, uneven tone, and wrinkles with continued use over time. To use, smooth the nighttime moisturizer over your skin until absorbed. And that’s a wrap!
