About Glycolic Peel:
Glycolic Acid is one of the most popular natural skin peeling treatments. Glycolic acid has long been heralded as a cure-all for dull, lackluster skin. Used in a plethora of skin care products, this natural acid boasts the ability to refine and renew the skin, diminishing fine lines, sun-spots, and acne.
Glycolic acid is the smallest type of alpha-hydroxy-acid and has many applications in skin care products as a natural skin exfoliant. Its capability to penetrate the skin is key when allowing old, sun-damaged skin cells to shed, renewing the skin’s texture and vitality.
I received the Glycolic 50% Peel kit from Skin-Peel to review. The Glycolic 50% Peel is not the first chemical peel I have used. I first started with the 30% Strength and then the Fusion Peel. After using the 50% strength, I realize it is the perfect formula for the needs of my skin in conjunction with my age.
Each Glycolic Peel set comes with a Peel Prep Solution, Neutralizer Solution and Glycolic Peel. The prep solution prepares your skin for the peel. When using the Glycolic Peel, you can choose how long to leave it on your skin. Beginners can start with up to 4 minutes and experienced users can go up to 30 minutes. The neutralizer is used to stop the glycolic peel when you are ready to wash it off.
I leave the Glycolic Peel on for about 15 to 20 minutes. It stings while I am applying the peel to my skin. I can feel a very slight tingle while it’s on my skin. After removing the peel, I follow with a hyaluronic moisturizer. It is also recommended to use SPF 30 sunscreen to protect your skin during the day.
The Glycolic Peel set from Skin-Peel is easy to use. I am happy with the results. I have noticed reduced signs of aging, my fine lines are less visible, and my skin appears smooth and healthy looking.
