Glycolic Moisturizers: Perfect for that Winter Alligator Skin!

In the winter climes, your skin can become dreadfully dehydrated and scream out for more moisture – you know that alligator skin feel!

Glycolic acid moisturizers are the best winter time relief for dry, scaly skin on your legs, arms and body. The glycolic acid helps to dissolve the “cellular glue” that holds dead skin cells on the surface of your skin. The build-up of dead cells dulls your complexion, clogs your pores, and causes fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots to appear.

Glycolic acid, a naturally occurring substance derived from sugar cane, is the preferred alpha hydroxy acid for use in skin care products because of its ability to penetrate the skin. When used on a daily basis, glycolic acid products can greatly improve the appearance and texture of your skin.

Skin-Retexturizing with Glycolic Moisturizers

Quick-absorbing glycolic lotion exfoliates, moisturizes and rejuvenates your skin. This potent trinity means that your skin will naturally look and feel healthier, younger, tighter and smoother. Generally speaking visible results can be seed on most people within a month.

With the right complex, you can say goodbye to flaky legs and dry arms – that alligator skin!
