A bit more aggressive than lactic acids, this is also an alpha hydroxy peel and will exfoliate the outer layers of your skin. Glycolic acid is a good all-around acid for normal-oily skin types to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin, as well as addressing the issues of acne, acne scarring, wrinkles and fine lines.
Directions: Cleanse face (neck or décolletage - optional).
Apply 40% GLYCOLIC ACID and leave on 1-2 minutes. Watch for redness. Remove at first signs of sensitivity. Mix 8 oz of cool water with one teaspoon of baking soda. Mix well. Use a compress to remove and rinse thoroughly.
