A glycolic peel is a way to make your skin more smooth by getting rid of dead skin cells. It’s also a good way to get rid of wrinkles, or at least to reduce them – but here I want to focus on it as a way to improve acne and dimish pimples.

Generally it is advised that you talk to a dermatologist before you use a glycolic peel.

Glycolic peels are alpha hydroxy acids, and you can find them in sugar cane, tomato juice, and lactic acid.

This is the lightest form of chemical peels that is available, and it works well if you have some dry areas on your skin, if you have acne, or if you have fine wrinkles.

There are some side effects that might occur when you are using glycolic peels like a stinging sensation on your skin, your skin may become red, and dry. It’s also important that you realize when you try to use glycolic acid peels to reduce your acne that one treatment will not be enough, but you will need several treatments.

If you want, you can mix glycolic peels with the cream, or facial wash.

Glycolic peels are much milder than other kinds of peels like the beta hydroxy acid peels, retinoic acid peels, trick lauryl acetic acid peels, or phenol peels. The reason why glycolic acid peels works so well is because they help to get rid of the old skin layers and expose the fresher and younger looking skin. What happens basically is that a very thin layer of your skin is getting destroyed and removed by the glycolic peel, and this can reduce fine lines and small wrinkles, because the distance between the upper layer of your skin, and the wrinkle gets smaller. It can also help to reduce age sports, and of course acne as I’ve already said.

When you start using glycolic acid peels, you should start with no more than the 20% to 30% glycolic solution. Overtimes, as your skin becomes increasingly accommodated to the glycolic acid, you might step by step increase the amount of glycolic acid in the solution that you apply on your skin, however, it should never be more than 70%.

Maybe you’re wondering how long it takes to administer a glycolic acid peel treatment. You should calculate about 30 minutes to 45 minutes.

After you have received your treatment, you will notice that your skin is smelling a little bit like cucumbers or avocado. This is completely normal, and the smell will disappear quite quickly and not be noticeable by other people very much unless they come very close to.

Another benefit of having the old skin cells of your skin removed is that you stimulate the division of new cells, which is very refreshing experience for all of your skin. You will also notice the overall tone of your skin is more harmonious than it was before the treatment, so there aren’t many skin discolorations.

Sometimes you might notice an itching sensation that can last up to several hours. It’s very important that you don’t try to scratch it, but do you that you remain patient instead and just let it pass. If you scratch, you can cause damage to your skin, because your skin at this point is very vulnerable. Also, should your skin start to peel, don’t try to pull off little pieces of skin or anything like that. Just let your body take care of it, don’t do anything with your hands like pulling on the skin not scratching or anything like that.

Glycolic peels don’t hurt, but they are not exactly very comfortable. It feels pretty much like a face masks, but it can often have an unpleasant smell what you receive the treatment.

Before you apply the glycolic peel should always make sure that your skin is clean. Afterwards you should apply a neutralizing solution.

You can go to as or skin care clinic to get a glycolic peel, or you can do it at home. There are many at home glycolic peel treatments available, and they’re quite cheap. If you have further questions about glycolic acid peels, be free to contact me.
