If you’ve heard of glycolic acid before, it may very well have been in the context of chemical peels.  Dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and estheticians use glycolic acid as an ingredient in these skincare treatments because of glycolic acid’s remarkable power to penetrate, cleanse, and rejuvenate dry, tired, or aging skin.  Glycolic acid soaks deep into the outer layer of skin, effectively breaking down the bonds that hold together the outermost dead, tired, skin cells to reveal the younger, fresher skin underneath.

Here are some of the amazing benefits of glycolic acid peels:

  1. True colors: Glycolic acid treatments can confer beautiful, even skin tone by lessening the appearance of discoloration due to hyperpigmentation, acne scars, age spots, and other causes.
  2. Buh-bye, crows’ feet: Glycolic acid also gives your skin a smoother and more youthful texture by promoting collagen generation, visibly reducing the appearance of signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin.
  3. Get your glow on: Glycolic acid’s all-around exfoliating power refreshes tired, dull skin, making your face fresh and luminous.
  4. Pores, what pores? Glycolic acid application can also visibly reduce pore size, enhancing your skin’s overall tone and texture (see Numbers 1 and 2!).
  5. But wait, there’s more! Speaking of pores, glycolic acid’s penetrative power can also help reduce acne and blackheads, especially when it’s teamed up with another cleansing agent, such as salicylic acid.
