While Glycolic acid is often a misunderstood facial product, we want to show you how it can be beneficial for your skin’s health! That’s why throughout the month of March, we will highlight the benefits of glycolic acid in a series of 4 blog posts – this is the second.
March 20th marks the first day of Spring. A time for May flowers, sun, and some much-needed spring cleaning! It’s also the perfect time to add a boost to your skin! Here are 5 ways adding a Glycolic Peel to your regimen will bring a Springtime boost to your skin:
1. Molecules Matter
Glycolic acid is the most beneficial of all the “alpha hydroxy acids” because it has the smallest molecular size. This small size enables it to penetrate the skin more effectively and ultimately bring about the most dramatic and beneficial changes.
2. Subtract the debris, add the hydration
A secondary benefit is glycolic acid’s ability to draw moisturizers into the newly-exfoliated skin surface. After your peel rids your skin of debris, hydrating products work more effectively because it allows your skin to fully absorb the product, creating fresh, radiant results.
3. Healthy skin from the inside out
It not only allows your products to absorb into your skin more efficiently, but also eliminates abnormal cells that can eventually lead to skin cancers!
4. Gentle and non-intrusive
You’ve probably heard rumors about glycolic peels burning or creating rashes. Sex and the City‘s Samantha had her own traumatizing glycolic peel experience! But that is not how glycolic peels work. Our glycolic peels are gentle and require no “down-time.” This is because of the acidity level. Below, watch a glycolic peel in action!
5. More Visible Results
By adding a Factor-A Resurfacing Treatment to the already results-oriented Glycolic Peel, you’ll enjoy even more intensified results (yes, it’s true ladies!). The additional ingredients, including retinol, azelaic, kojic and salicylic acids, work with the Glycolic Acid to further enhance skin clarity, texture, tone and brightness.
Retinol, a form of Vitamin A, is one of the most effective medically validated ingredients to address anti-aging concerns. It increases cellular turnover and the production of collagen for increased volume in the skin and improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol converts into retinoic acid in the skin, resulting in visible results without all of the sensitivity and irritation that come along with prescriptions containing retinoic acid. When combined with the powerful lightening benefits of azelaic and kojic acids, this treatment becomes a powerhouse, addressing many of the common visible signs of aging.
