Alpha hydroxy face creams
Glycolic acid is a commonly used form of alpha hydroxy acid. (face cream image by PinkShot from Fotolia.com)

Alpha hydroxy acids reduce hyperpigmentation, also known as dark spots or age spots. These acids exfoliate the top layer and firm the facial skin. The exfoliation process is intended to reveal a more even, brighter skin tone. Alpha hydroxy acids are also used to decrease the apparent size of pores and to fight acne. Alpha hydroxy acids make skin more sensitive to the sun, so take care to use a sunscreen to protect the face when using a skin cream containing alpha hydroxy acids.
