Tu’el brings another wonderful product. This time it’s a 10% Glycolic Acid in a 3.5 PH gel base. It is a very balanced alpha hydroxy acid or AHA.

This alpha hydroxy acid gel will gently increase surface exfoliation, help smooth skin surface and aide in product absorption.

Used by themselves, AHAs are drying, so it is essential to use a deeply penetrating humectant product like

Hy-Drate (rich in hyaluronic acid) in conjunction with this product.

Glycolic acid is also used to improve the skin’s appearance and texture. It may reduce wrinkles, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and improve many other skin conditions, including actinic keratosis, hyperkeratosis, and seborrheic keratosis.

Once applied, glycolic acid reacts with the upper layer of the skin, weakening the binding properties of the lipids that hold the dead skin cells together. This allows the skin to be exfoliated, exposing live skin cells.

What’s in it?

Aqua (Purified Water), Glycolic Acid, Glycerin, Aloe Barbadensis Extract, Panthenol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate. 2 oz. $31

See you at the spa!
