Difficult to choose acne-prone skin? Glycolic acid pad or turmeric anti-acne kit?

Dec 14,2021 | HISEEK PRETTY

Friends who are troubled by acne, please raise your hands. According to UCLA Newsroom, about 20% of Americans have acne occasionally, and the remaining 80% are long-term fighting. Therefore, a simple and effective anti-acne skincare process is simply what everyone expects~

Over the years, we have talked a lot about acne. Some readers came into contact with us in the process of searching for a suitable anti-acne process, and some readers would write to us asking for quick and simple measures to treat acne. Two sets of anti-acne skincare products: glycolic acid series and turmeric anti-acne products have received positive reviews from users. We also received a lot of comment requests to talk about these two series. The turmeric anti-acne kit claims to be able to remove acne in a natural herbal formula, while the glycolic acid series claims to unclog pores, control oil, clean and exfoliate, and reduce red acne marks. The latter has regular and enhanced versions.


Both said that it can effectively treat acne without drying out the skin. But who is better?

Please listen to us slowly~~

One of the two products is glycolic acid, which is derived from sugar cane fruit, for acne treatment, and the other is natural turmeric herbal acne treatment for acne treatment.

The Turmeric Acne Kit uses herbal turmeric extract. An edible natural anti-inflammatory ingredient. According to Web MD, turmeric can reduce acne-causing bacteria, promote blood circulation, tighten pores, and heal acne. It is said to have the function of whitening and diminishing dark spots.

Glycolic acid has also been shown to stimulate collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines. Simply put, the extra pigment we get from old acne scars, age spots, sun damage, or melasma will be stored in our dead cell layer for several weeks. The role of glycolic acid is to "eliminate the storage of a large amount of excess pigment", help balance the overall skin tone, and play a whitening role.

Friends who are prone to pigmentation are more suitable for turmeric anti-acne series
The turmeric anti-acne kit claims to be able to treat mild to moderate acne.

It is added with the herb turmeric root extract which is commonly used for bacteriostasis, which is beneficial to prevent the generation of black pigment or color change. The correct use of skin care products containing turmeric extract has a very good effect on preventing skin itching or inhibiting skin inflammation. Inhibition of ceramidase, so as to maintain the amount of ceramide in the cortex, can soften the skin, combined with its inhibition of elastase and excellent water-holding capacity, can be used to condition the skin

Glycolic acid tablets are recommended for young men and women with greasy skin and acne-proneness.

Glycolic acid can penetrate into the dermis where the cells are produced, promote the regeneration and production of elasticity and moisturizing ingredients, and make the skin more youthful. It can also act on the epidermis and renew itself every 28 days through continuous cell and lipid regeneration. Our skin sheds tens of thousands of cells every hour, naturally preventing impurities such as pollution, chemicals, bacteria, and ultraviolet rays. If you meet the conditions for brushing acid, acidic skincare will improve mouth closure, acne, and acne marks to varying degrees. If you brush acid, you don’t pay attention to the rhythm, you will receive it if you don’t see it well, and you don’t pay attention to the skin repair and care after acid brushing. The skin becomes thinner, sensitive, or even inflamed, infection, recurrence of acne, or more serious. Even if the acid is brushed normally, it may cause skin bursting and dryness, so be sure to pay attention to the repair of the sebum film after the acid brushing, moisturizing and moisturizing.

How to choose?

For these two sets of products, the glycolic acid tablet anti-acne package is cheaper. For the first use, it is recommended to do a skin test. After use, skincare and moisturizing are required. The turmeric anti-acne kit can be used as an anti-acne treatment or as daily skincare. Of course, if you are a diehard turmeric fan, it is okay to spend an extra $60 on the brand, and you can get a complete skincare system~

If you have tried acid skin care intolerance, consider turmeric skincare. However, I still prefer to use turmeric for skincare on a daily basis, and regularly use it with glycolic acid cotton pads to clean and exfoliate.

If your acne can cause pigmentation or discoloration scars (acne marks), it is recommended to use a skincare kit containing turmeric to help improve acne marks, lighten dark spots, and brighten the skin.

Finally, if you have big oily skin, it is recommended to use glycolic acid tablets-oil control to prevent acne outbreaks.
