With Mother’s Day coming up this week, I want to focus on a topic that is the ultimate treat for all of us Mommy’s out there…TIME. Yes, time, for ourselves…to clean our face, take a shower that is longer than 3 minutes, or- dare I say it?- blowdry our hair? These moments are harder to come by than one might think, what with all the variables that come up in a day.
Within the last few years, there is an ingredient that has gained popularity for its effectiveness, and time-saving capabilities. Glycolic acid, when used in smaller doses (10% or less), is a gentle form of chemical exfoliation that can produce amazing results. It targets multiple skin care goals, saving those of us who use it valuable time to give to other life priorities.
Have a look at this article on Glycolic Acid to hear about all of the beneficial aspects, as well as some great tips for how to use it. And don’t get nervous when you read the ‘risks’ section, the author is warning about continued usage at a much higher dosage than you or I would get over the counter.
With all the multi-tasking your new glycolic cream will be doing, get ready to have some extra time on your hands. And dads, husbands, and kids everywhere: for just this week, let mom use that extra time for herself. She’s earned it!
