What chemical peel is best for acne?
Peels containing Salicylic or Mandelic acid can produce amazing results for acne sufferers.
As they are lipid soluble (dissolve in fat & oils) they have an affinity with the skin's natural oils and so can easily penetrate the skin, entering sebaceous ducts breaking down the buildup of sebum and dead skin cells.
Their larger molecular structure means that they don't penetrate as deeply as Glycolic peels,and as a result are less aggressive, making them ideal for sensitive skins.
Their sensitive nature means that they can be used on skins of colour where pigmentation issues can be an issue
