Glycolic Acid Skin Peels are chemical peels that feature glycolic acid as the main component. It’s part of the alpha hydroxyl family of natural ingredients and is a fruit acid derived from sugar cane, one of the most well-known superficial peeling mediums on the market. Good to note that it’s a popular skin peel treatment for winkles and acne.
By losing all the dead cells your skincare products will be able to penetrate deeper into the skin. Not only will you notice a brighter complexion, but the cellular turnover also gets a kick-start. Healthier and happier cells are produced, while collagen and elastin production is enhanced. Hence the anti-ageing benefit!
Glycolic acid, which is water-soluble, has a small molecular structure that can be readily absorbed by the skin. Once absorbed, the acid dissolves the bonds that holds the dead cells together. Once loosened, dead cells are able to exfoliate off the skin, revealing a more radiant skin, while promoting both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant activity to create skin rejuvenation.
Your skin definitely benefits from regular peels and with continuous use Glycolic Acid can ehlp in accelerating skin healing, as well as reducing signs of environmental damage. The good news is that Glycolic Acid doesn’t penetrate deep enough to cause dermal harm, adding to the safety of this specific peeling treatment.
