The Readers Digest recently published an article about the benefits of glycolic acid when used in facial skin peels. Because it is made up of smaller molecules than salicylic or lactic acid, the article claimed that these sorts of peels can penetrate deeper into the skin. It has been proven to be particularly useful in the removal of congested pores, fine lines and blemishes, as well as a powerful skin smoothing agent. The skin peels should give you a less rough skin texture and a more even skin tone.
The way that it works, is by dissolving the ‘glue’ that holds skin cells together. In this way, it forces an exfoliation of the outer layer of skin. So, let’s have a look at how glycolic acid-based facial skin peels can give you a cosmetic boost and make you look younger.
What does a facial skin peel do?
