Due for a facial or chemical peel but not ready to break the bank? Many dermatologists and estheticians offer glycolic acid peels as a service but you can easily find budget-friendly, over-the-counter peel pads that provide instant results. If you haven't tried glycolic acid peel pads yet, you are in for a treat.
Glycolic acid plays such a big role in skincare that none of your other products would work the same without it. Your skin will less likely need harsh charcoal masks or pimple patches for breakouts as well. Warning: Peel pads in particular are so effective that it may transform your skin (and your life).”
1. Removes excess oil to reduce blemishes & enlarged pores
Most of us know how difficult treating acne can be, especially if you can’t get to the root of the problem. The best way to achieve clear skin is to always have clean skin. You may not like this skincare tip but surprisingly, many do not know how to start with clean skin. Make-up wipes and gentle cleansers are great starters to your routine, but it shouldn’t stop there. Acne is produced by excess oils and clogged pores, and exfoliators like our Glow to Go Glycolic Acid Peel Pads can tremendously help by sloughing off the extra “gunk” from your skin. This will ensure your skin gets proper ventilation to treat and help prevent any future breakouts.
These convenient, 2-in-1 peel pads provide both chemical and physical exfoliation; the chemical aspect derives from the glycolic acid and the physical exfoliation is from the mesh texture of the peel pads where it helps slough off dead skin cells and debris from the skin. The best part about these glycolic pads? No cotton balls needed!
Your complexion will look smoother, brighter, and healthier after sloughing off dull, dead skin. Over time, you should also notice less breakouts and sebum build-up as the glycolic acid works to break down excess oils.
2. Helps fade dark spots and reduce fine lines & wrinkles
Struggling with stubborn post-acne marks? What about deep wrinkles and dark spots caused by sun damage? Your pricey brightening serums and dark spot correctors won’t work effectively without proper exfoliation.
Dark spots are formed by an accumulation of pigmented cells. The only way to shed those pigmented cells is using an exfoliant with tiny molecules, like glycolic acid, that are small enough to penetrate deeply and dissolve dead skin cells, including the pigmented ones.
Known as a hero ingredient in skincare, glycolic acid has been around for years and is highly recommended by dermatologists to help ‘reset’ your skin. In other words, glycolic acid works to gently peel your surface layer skin. After several treatments, you should see an improvement in evenness and texture. To combat stubborn skin concerns like dark spots and wrinkles, it is important to start with clean, exfoliated skin. What better way to cleanse thoroughly than exfoliating with glycolic acid? It will help speed up your skincare results.
3. Sloughs off dead skin to allow efficacy of other products
Not seeing results from your skincare products? It can be frustrating to find what works for your skin type, especially if you’re targeting a specific skin concern. Results will take time, depending on the product and the concern. However, if you’re not seeing results after a generous amount of time, you may be slacking with exfoliation.
Humans naturally shed roughly around a million skin cells within a 24-hour window. However, our skin takes longer to shed dead skin cells as we age. Accumulation of dead skin may cause dullness and breakouts; it also prevents other skincare products from penetrating effectively. Shedding the surface dead skin layer thoroughly with glycolic acid will help combat your skincare concerns more effectively.
Moderate exfoliation should lead to consistent glycolic acid benefits, which will allow your other skincare products to perform more effectively and your skin to look more radiant than ever!
4. Rejuvenates skin to reveal radiance and optimal glow
Think of glycolic acid as a gentle chemical peel; it removes the debris by peeling away an old skin layer to make way for fresh new cells. The benefits of exfoliating with glycolic acid include fading dark spots, evening skin tone, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Gentle, yet effective, you can give yourself a glycolic acid peel at home using peel pads. After a few swipes of using these peel pads, it will be much easier to maintain a radiant glow. This at-home treatment is the most convenient and painless alternative to a chemical peel without breaking the bank!
While there are many glycolic pads out on the market with different price points, be advised that some peel pads do not contain the proper formulation of ingredients. You will need a product that is well-balanced, containing a good ratio between glycolic acid and other hydrating ingredients to thoroughly wipe off dead cells while moisturizing and strengthening your skin to reveal that optimal glow!
5. Promotes skin renewal to smooth and even skin texture
The glycolic peel pads help to renew your complexion by revealing new, youthful skin cells. Promoting new skin on a regular basis will help stimulate collagen growth which leads to brighter, more radiant skin. Be advised that your renewed skin will always need a barrier, such as a moisturizer and SPF, to protect it from environmental factors.
