Glycolic: Your Back-To-School Science


Do you think your students are learning about biology and chemistry so one day they can walk into Ulta or Sephora and confidently purchase skincare?

I’m joking, but not really.  Understanding product ingredients and deciphering what best works with your skin, can make you resort to late night television purchases when you are half asleep.   I’ve heard and seen it all because for so many years I worked as an esthetician in my own medi-spa.  

My first advice is get into Glycolic. Clinical trials have repeatedly proven that glycolic is one of the best ingredients for your skin.

Glycolic acid is a gentle resurfacer that loosens and sweeps away dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, enabling your skin to exfoliate at rapid and regular rate. Glycolic has been shown to brighten, stimulate cell turnover, and overall totally overhaul your skin’s appearance.

It is the tiniest molecule and is the smallest of the alpha-hydroxy acids. That means glycolic can get deep within the layers of skin and work where you need it most. It has become such a popular active due to its’ size, efficacy, and ease of use.

Glycolic easily penetrate the skin’s surface, deeply retexturizing and allowing your other products in your routine to penetrate deeper, work harder, and function better for you. Feel good about using glycolic too. It is naturally occurring and derived from sugar cane.

Are you concerned about a dull complexion, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, scars or uneven skin tone.  You name your problem and I think a glycolic peel will be the solution.

While the word peel may sound intimidating, consider an at-home peel to resurface and rehydrate your skin. So teach your skin a lesson- no instructors necessary-start peeling at home.
