Smile Natural alternatives to Glycolic Acid

Is it true that lemon juice works like Glycolic Acid would? Also, what are other alternatives to glycolic acid peels? Thanks!

well lemon juice is acidic, but it's not the same as glycolic might work better for you, it might not. i'd pick the glycolic acid, just because lemon juice never worked for me.

don't know anything about glycolic acid peels.

lemons would be a good source of citric acid, which i believe is an AHA, but glycolic acid, another type of AHA is derived from sugar cane. There are some natural sugar scrubs out there that are like a milder glycolic treatment.
