Glycolic acid is an AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acid used for exfoliating the skin and loosening the bond between cells in the surface of the cornneum layer of the skin revealing smooth, brighter, younger looking skin.
The Lumixyl GlycoPeel uses a clinical strength 20% Glycolic Acid to exfoliate the skin. Glycolic acid is used to improve the skin’s texture, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring and other conditions such as Actinic Keratosis. It can be used during the day under a sunscreen or at night. When using a glycolic acid product, skin may become more sensitive to the sun so using a sunscreen daily is a must.
If your current skincare regimen just isn’t cutting it anymore and your skin is in need of a pick me up, this product is just want you need to give your skin a smoother and brighter complexion.
Glytone products feature the highest level FAV or Free Acid Value, delivering more Glycolic Acid to the skin due to its lower controlled PH formulation. The Step-Up products use a gradual “Step-Up” approach to Free Glycolic Acid to increase skins tolerance.
The Step-Up skin renewal program for at-home use offers the highest commercially available levels of Free Glycolic Acid available in two different kits, Normal to Dry or Normal to Oily. This program effectively reduces fine lines and wrinkles, photo damaged skin, and uneven tone & texture. Each step works more aggressively at treating aging skin. Everyone starts with Step 1, then gradually increases to the next step as skin develops a tolerance to the current level of use. If your skin is dull and showing the signs of aging, this kit is just what you need to give your skin the rejuvenation that it needs.
