A female asked:

is it safe to do a glycolic acid peel 50% under the eyes at home? and will it get rid of the fine lines?

No and yes: Glycolic acid 50% is a strong peel. If you get it too close to eyes you could burn your corneas. I would have it performed in a doctors office under a doctors supervision, it would get rid of the fine lines.
