glycolic acid

Does glycolic acid make acne worse or better? I tried a peel and it seems as if my skin has been over exfoliated help!!!

Re: glycolic acid

A daily glycolic gel is great for acne because it helps clear out dead skin cells and unclog pores. I don't recommend anyone giving themself a chemical peel since most people don't know what they are doing and can actually give themself a 3rd degree burn. If your skin is peeling right now, just moisturize and give it time. Within a couple weeks it should be back to normal.

I use a 10% glycolic gel. It is wonderful, I absolutely love it. I would highly recommend a gel.
