Glycolic acid peels seem to stop working after a while

Recommended Posts

Well I had very little redmarks to start with on my left side, but had MANY on my right cheek, did about 15 glycolic peels in total now and have burned myself about 4 times within those 15 so that's not too bad. I've quit all my acne meds and started doing vitamin K topical and glycolics 1x a week.

Glycolic acid peels do not seem to be working anymore, I just ordered a 30% so I will be doing that twice a week so we'll see. Is there anything else I can try?

Things I've tried :

Baking Soda Scrubs

Apple Cider Vinegar

Glycolic Acid peels, 50%, 40% and 30%

Aloe Vera

And now trying Vitamin K to fade them even more.

things with kojic acid is used to lighten skin but has helped me with broken capillary marks as well. vitamin c helps to repair the skin continuously. check into products that have vitamin c. or maybe consider taking vitamin c caplets
