Dark skin and skin peeling off after GA6
I've been using glycolic acid for hyperpigmentation on my body. This is my second time using it. I used it for the first time about 20 days ago. I applied glycolic acid on my body yesterday. It felt fine like it did the first time I used it and didn't show any irritation but today there is one small darker line and the skin is sort of peeling off. Other areas where I applied glycolic acid were fine except this one small area.

Glycolic acid can cause irritation of skin if used in increased amounts or concentration. It has caused exfoliation in this case. Kindly consult online to manage this and know the correct usage of Glycolic acid at home.
