If you’ve been a Belo patient for a long time, then you must be familiar with our Glycopeel Cleaning treatment, which uses glycolic acid to deep-clean, exfoliate, and boost your skin’s natural turnover process. Our popular Salt Facial also makes use of glycolic acid in the third step of the treatment, just to enhance the exfoliation effects of natural sea salt in the first step. And of course, our founder and CEO, Dr. Vicki Belo, is a huge fan: “In the morning, I use a glycolic acid exfoliator and vitamin C. I think every person is hiyang to certain medicine. What’s very bagay to me is a little glycolic [acid] or any alpha-hydroxy acid, but glycolic in particular my skin loves,” she gushed in an August 2019 interview with But if you’re being extra-careful this quarantine and don’t want to leave home, there’s a way to enjoy the amazing effects of glycolic acid in your at-home routine. 

The Belo Prescriptives Glycolic Soap 5% is only P500 on The Belo Shop, and it’s a must-have for those who want to prevent or correct breakouts! 

So why should you add this to your quarantine routine?

1. It sloughs off dead skin cells and dirt.

First off, glycolic acid is a type of chemical exfoliant that dissolves the bonds between dead skin cells, allowing them to be wiped away easily, revealing smooth, younger skin below. Dr. Belo recommends that we exfoliate, not moisturize, to achieve skin that is truly healthy. So chemical exfoliation is the way to go.

2. It removes and controls excess oil.

This ingredient is also a powerhouse for oil control. It prevents pores from getting clogged and regulates oil production, resulting in less breakouts! 

3. It refreshes skin without the visible peeling.

As mentioned, glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant. Unlike physical exfoliants, which contain elements like microbeads or particles to literally scrub the skin smooth, chemical exfoliants use acids or enzymes to gently dissolve and loosen the cells. “Acids” sounds extreme, but once you remove your usual household-cleaner association with the word, you’ll realize that chemical exfoliation can be great for your skin (when used correctly and not overdone, of course!). And unlike harsher peels that will literally have clumps of your skin falling off, chemical exfoliants exfoliate without the ugly peeling!

4. It’s also available in 10% if you need a stronger concentration!

Need a little more than just 5%? If you’re no longer new to glycolic acid, and your Belo MD has given you the go-signal to try a higher percentage of the good stuff, you can get the Belo Prescriptives Glycolic Soap 10% at The Belo Shop. (It’s only P600!)
