About Glycolic Acids

Skin that is fresh, smooth, and glowing is within reach with the resurfacing properties of glycolic acid. This at-home skin treatment gives you many of the benefits of a professional salon treatment or visit to a dermatologist's office. By applying a glycolic acid cream or solution daily, you thoroughly exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells on your face, revealing the live skin cells below and giving the skin an all-new look. This treatment works well to improve the appearance and texture of anyone's skin, but is also particularly effective for those dealing with a variety of troublesome skin conditions, including hyperkeratosis, acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Glycolic acid comes in a variety of application methods. One popular technique is to wipe the face after washing with glycolic acid pads in lieu of a toner. There are also leave-in creams and moisturizers available, as well as daily washes. Explore the world of glycolic acid by looking through the listings available in the large inventory on eBay and stock your medicine cabinet with this skin essential.
