Hi , how long should I leave the glycolic acid peel on for? The package says 1-5 mins and I saw an answer on this forum saying 1hr so I’m confused

Thank you for the enquiry about the Glycolic Acid. I would recommend at least an hour. There are many of our clients who actually leave it on overnight, as it should not cause any reaction, being only a 10% concentration.
It is a microscopic ex-foliater and visibile peeling is seldom noted, but it provides improved texture and stimulates renewal of the epidermis.
