I'm sure it's not just me who shies away (much like the way a young comely serving girl would shy from her handsome, powerful master. Oops, obviously been reading too many Victorian bodice-rippers again) from mentions of face and acid in the same sentance, but faithful readers, stay with me.
Glycolic acid can help you to look younger because dead skin cells often settle into lines and wrinkles, making them appear deeper than they really are. Good old glycolic acid will clear that debris away, giving you a fresher looking appearance. Using it will also help prevent the skin thickening on the face and becoming rough and yucky.
So how do you use it? Well - firstly, identify your skintype - if you've sensitive skin then it's not for you. For everyone else, you can have glycolic facials (ask in your local salon if they do them) and you can buy products to use at home as well. One of those would be Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash, which will set you back about â‚¬20. Look for it in chemists.
