Glycolic Acid Home Peel Information

Glycolic Acid Home Peel Information

Every day people are looking for a new way to treat their face and help pamper their skin. Whether it is expensive spa treatments, facial creams, expensive machines, or alternative therapies, you are all too familiar with the cost of cleaning and taking care of your facial needs. There is a relative inexpensive way which you may not have heard of, that is becoming increasingly popular. The latest craze is the glycolic acid home peel, which essentially rids your face of dry skin, blemishes, and helps with the treatment of acne. Another benefit of using the peel is that you can do it in the comfort of your own home, just by following the directions on the packaging.

If you have not yet undergone a glycolic acid home peel, it would be best for you to start off with the lowest possible concentration of the acid, just to be on the safe side. Most of the solutions out there go no lower than 30%, which you should look for when shopping for it. You can buy a variety of different kinds of home kits online and in some beauty stores. Before starting the full treatment, the packaging will tell you to do a test on a patch of your skin to make sure you do not have any allergies to the ingredients. Presumably you will pass, so then you need to read the directions that will come with your home care kit carefully. Most of the quality glycolic acid home peel kits will come with an applicator tool to rub in on your skin, but if it does not, then you can just use your finger tips. Rub in the solution, just not near your eyes, and let it work for two to three minutes. After that time, you rinse your face off with the baking soda solution that comes in the packaging. Be sure to rinse your face off with water after that, just to make sure that the acid solution is off. Dry your face and put on a moisturizer if you so choose and wait for the skin to peel. The peeling will not be excessive, but rather it will hardly be noticed.

Some people may find that the glycolic acid home peel may burn slightly, but for the most part it does not. Before buying any home kits online, be sure to do plenty of research on the matter and read all of the product reviews that you can find. From what most people say, this is an effective and inexpensive way to treat your skin problems. The glycolic acid home peel is something that anyone interested in facial care should try.
