Natural Skin Lighteners That Work
Glycolic acid is a water-soluble alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is derived from sugar cane. It is one of the most well-known and widely used alpha-hydroxy acids in the skincare industry. Glycolic acid exfoliates the outermost dead layer of the skin and improves the reflection of light on the skin thereby increasing skin luminosity. This natural skin brightener also reduces wrinkles and treats acne prone skin.
