Glycolic Acid Peel 70% Solution, Melasma, Brighten, Even Skin Tone, Anti Aging
Glycolic acid is the most popular Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) use in the world of skincare to date. Glycolic Acid is a small organic molecule that allows it to release the bonds that connect the dead cells to the skin. They can then be easily sloughed off leaving a smooth and more young-looking skin. In addition, glycolic acid is an exceptionally efficient moisturizer. In one experiment there was a 200% improvement in the moisture of the skin when glycolic acid was used on a regular basis over four or five weeks.
Glycolic acid… 1oz (30ml)
A colorless, odorless, crystalline solid. It’s highly soluble in water and used in various skincare products. When applied to the skin glycolic acid reacts with the upper layers of the skin weakening the “glue” that holds dead skin cells together. This action allows exfoliation to occur exposing live skin cells.
GA is derived from sugar cane and claims to be the most effective fruit acid particularly for cosmetic applications.
What makes GA so popular….
GA also has the smallest molecular structure giving it the best possible penetration potential. Once inside the cell, GA has the ability to stimulate collagen and elastin just under the skin, the dermis layer. This process improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines through this increased collagen production.
Now let’s make that ever simpler to understand. Glycolic acid gets under the dry and damaged layers of our skin destroying the “glue” holding that dead skin to our face and chemically burns it off… ewww. Now the remaining ingredients carry all those flake of skin away with copious amounts of water with neutralizes the remaining acid. This process leaves behind softer, smoother and more youthful appearance. PLUS GA has the unique ability to actually draw moisture into the newly exfoliated skin This whole process may leave the skin a bit red and require a few days recovery…. It’s just that simple….Voila!!
Remember as with all skin…. sunscreen, Sunscreen, and more SUNSCREEN ALWAYS!
