Who should use the Perfect Image 50% Gel Peel?
It’s best if you don’t start using this glycolic acid 50% Gel Peel, unless you have already been using a lower percentage gel, for example the Perfect Image Glycolic Acid 30% Gel Peel. Perfect Image consider their 50% Gel Peel to be a Level 2 Peel and their 30% Gel Peel to be a Level 1 Peel. The difference is that the 50% chemical peel is approximately twice as strong as the Level 1 Peel, so you need to be very careful that you do not damage your skin with these stronger peels.
This 50% Glycolic Acid Gel Peel is ideal for anyone who has lingering blotchy pigmentation, fine lines and a loss of definition along your jawline and cheeks. Tired and dull skin can also be made more healthy and fresh with this peel, but it’s better to start with a weaker peel first. If in doubt, always talk to your medical practitioner, because the FDA recommends that these stronger chemical peels are administered by a trained professional.

Benefits of Glycolic Acid
Glycolic Acid has the smallest molecular size of all the Alpha Hydroxy Acids, so it can more easily penetrate your skin. This means that it’s a very efficient exfoliator, removing all the dead cells that form an impenetrable barrier on your skin and block your pores. Blackheads and acne can then form – due to all the debris that has clogged your pores, and your skin then starts to suffer from blemishes and looks tired, grey and dull. Once all of this debris has been exfoliated however, your skin looks brighter, fresher and healthier.
Your other skincare products can now also penetrate your skin more easily, and since glycolic acid also boosts collagen production, your skin looks plumper and healthier.
Benefits of Green Tea
Green Tea is one of the strongest antioxidants and helps to reverse the damage caused to your skin by an excess of UV rays and environmental pollutants. Anyone with sun spots or age-spots will find that green tea helps to smooth their skin tone, reducing pigmentation problems and protecting their skin from free radicals. This is a wonderful ingredient to include in your skincare routine.
Benefits of Chamomile
Chamomile is another high level antioxidant that helps to fight the damage caused by free radicals and too much UV exposure. It also has a very soothing effect on irritated skin and is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It’s a lovely ingredient for anyone with acne or inflamed skin.
Benefits of Retinol
Otherwise known as Vitamin A, Retinol has long been known as a solution for acne, helping to unblock your pores and reducing the production of excess sebum. It also helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and can improve the elasticity in your skin as well.
