My skin is very wierd, it gets so dry to the point where its oily,and lately i have been having alot of dry flaky skin....in fact tomorrow i plan on buying this http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P196003&categoryId=S15110&shouldPaginate=true  ,the ingredients are AMAZING and it seems sooo potent, and i can use it everyday, i can't wait to try this. Trust me ladies Sephora has a lot of great SKIN LIGHTENERS: that are safe to lighten those dark spots. EXFOLIANTS/PEELS:that have great ingredients and seem pretty effective.
they even have a Glycolic Acid body wash to get smooth clear skin all over http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P1809&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=3528

It depends on how bad your scars and hyperpigmentation is. For me just one peel showed results, and i have extremely uneven skintone and lots of dark any spots. I just did mines yesterday. Immediately after the peel i noticed smaller looking pores and overall my skin looked refreshed. By this morning my scars looked even lighter. I think thats because of the dead skin shedding. But ofcourse to get long lasting and optimum results you should do one peel once a week for about 2 months.

I used to get glycolic acid peels with extraction done at the dermatologists' office. I loved it, my skin was clear, even toned
and the best thing about it is that it kept any small imperfections
at bay. Here's the deal though, if you ladies are doing this you
need to be sure to put sunblock on your face when you go out
throughout the week, doesn't matter if the sun isn't strong...if
you don't what will happen is you'll age all the new skin that you
have just exposed and exfoliated free by using the glycolic acid
peel.

I definitely want to try a glycolic peel soon, before summer gets here. Being that it is the mildest chemical peel. I researched the other peels and its uses/results. I've read that you can mix your glycolic acid with a facial wash or cream in lesser concentrations so that you can use it as part of your daily skin regimen. Has anyone done this before?

Do you guys think i could use the glycolic peels on my face along with my legs to try and lighten a sort of mild case of stretch marks?
