The Winners of Good Housekeeping's First Annual Anti-Aging Awards
Best At-Home Peel: The Winner Boots No7 Advanced Renewal Anti-ageing Glycolic Peel Kit ($25, amazon.com) won most-appealing peel. This twice-weekly Boots kit, a glycolic acid solution that's left on for five minutes and neutralized with soothing pads, was the top performer both in the lab and with volunteers at home — a hit on all fronts.
Chemical peels are essential, guys. If you’re serious about skincare and anti-aging, there’s really no way around them. Glycolic acid removes dead skin cells, stimulates collagen regrowth, softens fine lines, evens out your skin tone, prevents clogged pores and deep wrinkles—and its naturally derived from sugar cane. If you have an extra $30 to $75 lying around and you feel like giving it to the spa of your choice for a chemical peel with glycolic acid, by all means: go for it. OR you can…
Benefits of Glycolic Acid. My fave is NeoCutis face wash. Glycolic acid is commonly used in more concentrated forms by aestheticians as in office peels. At home Use 2-3x a week in conjunction with Retin A to reduce wrinkles/acne/dark spots. Be careful it can cause redness and flaking if the wash is too strong or used too close to the Retin A application. #charlottepediatricclinic
