Glycolic peels are a staple in dermatologists' arsenal and they're also available over the counter. This particular formula contains 15 per cent glycolic acid which is quite a high concentration for beginners - most people start with five per cent and build up gradually. This is an exfoliant that removes impurities and pollutants from the skin's surface and it boosts collagen production for a smooth, radiant complexion. It's suitable for Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV.

This product has been formulated to be gentle and is safe for daily use. However, it might make the face more sensitive to sunlight so be sure to apply sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher while using this product.

Its ingredients include glycolic acid, which is known to help fight blemishes and brighten the skin by breaking down dead cell connections on the outer layer of the skin. It's also claimed to reduce the appearance of dark spots and other discoloration and might improve skin texture. It's also said to stimulate the skin's natural renewal process and hydrate the skin for a healthy glow.

This peel has been formulated to be gentle and is said to be safe for daily use. However, it might be a little irritating on skin that's prone to breakouts. It's also advised to patch test the product before beginning use as it may cause a mild burning sensation. It's suggested to use this skin peel on non-consecutive nights for up to three weeks.
