Glycolic Skin Peels

What’s a glycolic acid peel?

A glycolic acid peel is like a super-charged version of the “brightening” peels that you can buy over the counter. It uses glycolic acid, an alpha-hydroxy acid and one of the most effective exfoliating chemicals, to weaken the bonds between cells on the top layer of your skin—effectively removing that top layer.

This sounds pretty gory, but remember: The top layer of your skin is basically just dead skin cells. Getting rid of these guys can help your skin can look brighter and tighter. Other perks include stimulating collagen production (to fight signs of aging) and evening out skin tone if you’re dealing with hyper-pigmentation. In the case of acne, removing dead skin cells can also rid your skin of pore-clogging gunk.
