Most people experience acne at some point in their life – usually as a teenager. But for others, acne never really goes away. It can be embarrassing and frustratingly hard to get rid of. The key to healing acne is to open the pores and cleanse the skin of dead cells and acne-causing bacteria. Chemical peels with glycolic acid can help.
Glycolic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in sugar cane. When used in skincare products, it offers many rejuvenating and moisturizing benefits to the skin. In its raw state, glycolic acid is a powder made up of colorless crystals that have no scent.
Glycolic acid is found in many chemical peels. It’s a safe and effective way to exfoliate and remove the outer layer of the skin. This encourages new skin cell growth and removes dead or damaged cells.
Exfoliation and removing dead cells prevents cell build-up on the skin, which causes a dull complexion and clogged pores, leading to acne. Oily and acne-prone skin usually has slower rates of natural exfoliation, making it susceptible to clogged, enlarged pores that cause nodular acne, whiteheads and blackheads.
Glycolic acid is one of the best ingredients used to fight acne. Its small molecules can deeply penetrate the skin and inhibit the growth of the bacteria that causes acne.
