The pumpkin peel resurfacing treatment is an intensive way to rejuvenate your skin. Glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid and pumpkin pulp work together to combat aging and acne.
Glycolic acid peels slough off the surface and middle layers of skin, removing dead skin cells and debris.
Since glycolic acid is made up of small molecules, it readily penetrates skin, removing the lipids that hold dead skin cells together. The percentage of glycolic acid contained in the peel determines how deeply it can penetrate the skin’s layers.
Glycolic acid also loosens and lifts excess oil from hair follicle roots, which is why it’s often used to treat acne.
