GlycoPeel 20 uses a clinical strength, 20% Glycolic Acid which helps to address the removal of old skin spots trapped in the upper layers of the skin and improve skin texture. Skin spots, or hyperpigmented areas of the skin, are simply where pockets of clustered melanin reside at or under the surface of the skin. Often these pockets will fade away on their own over time through the natural skin exfoliation process. But that does take some time – so a good hyperpigmentation therapy will include an exfoliant to speed that natural process.
This product may give a tingling, or even a bit of a stinging sensation the first few times you use it. This is normal and is a sign that it is getting into the skin to help the exfoliation process begin. If you are sensitive to this tingling, allow your skin to dry before applying, use sparingly and less frequently, or try the GlycoPeel 10, which is ideal for more sensitive skin types.
