Celebrities’ Secret to Flawless Skin – Glycolic Acid Peels

Mimi S

Celebrities like Olivia Munn and Margot Robbie swear by glycolic acid peel treatments for smooth healthy bright skin.  Celebrities’ beauty secrets can help everyday women look just as beautiful as famous women. Olivia Munn spilled her secrets — not only expressing how Munn lost 12 pounds with the “80-20 Diet,” but also how Munn faded her dark spots using glycolic acids.  Munn claimed that she faithfully used glycolic acid treatments for a year in order to fade the dark spots on her face and make them less noticeable so that her face would reflect more light.

However, with the high cost of glycolic acids treatments that can range from $150 to $300 per visit— everyday women might look for similar products with a cheaper price that include the same ingredients if not products used by estheticians and dermatologists.

Glycolic acid is something that is worth the hunt, noting how the acid works to slough off the dead layers of skin in order to bring forth the fresher and younger skin beneath the top layers.

“Glycolic is often prescribed to resolve major skin concerns related to dryness, texture, clarity, firmness and elasticity. Where dry skin can cause dullness, using an acid removes the top, dull layers, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. It’s a rapid exfoliator that will slough away dead, dry skin cells resulting in an even-toned radiant and glowing appearance.”

Glycolic Acid peel systems in 30%, 40% and 60% strength should not be performed more than once a week at home in order to allow the dead skin to slush off before the next treatment. However there are leave-on creams that can be used nightly, at low concentration of course.  Using glycolic acid for the first time will sting a bit- based on a person’s tolerance of the acid, but after several treatments, the skin will get used to the glycolic acid and that’s usually when it’s time to increase the concentration for a deeper peel or not…


Margot Robbie jokes about using glycolic acid in “a propriety glycolic and pearl mask,” as seen in the following spoof of her beauty routine, as reported by Elite Daily.

However, the sales and popularity of glycolic acid products are no joke, just how popular the glycolic acid peels that run from 10 percent to 60 percent strength and beyond for at-home treatments. 

The convenience of leave-on creams such as the Rejuvenist (“mini-facelift in a jar”) has 10% Glycolic Acid, low enough to be used daily without irritations to brighten and exfoliate the skin.

 “These peel creams help revitalize and renew dull complexions, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin with continued use.”

Olivia admitted that using the glycolic acid treatment at night is ideal and wears plenty of sunscreen when using the products and to make sure to avoid the sun as much as possible.

More and more celebrities now opt for non-surgical skin treatment. Such as chemical peels. Cameron Diaz confesses to struggling with uneven skin tone, sun damage and acne. She is a great fan of glycolic acid peel treatment to giving her healthy smooth skin.
