By now, many of you reading this may be familiar with that essential ingredient known as collagen. This may have something to do with the skin-crawling stories you have read online in the past about those folks who were desperate enough to go under the knife and lift and damage their skin irreparably in the false notion that they were finally going to look healthy and young.

This is good because it leaves the skin looking thicker, smoother and, of course, healthier. Glycolic acid is also used in the production of collagen, particularly if it is present in high concentrations. It also nourishes the skin’s cells. Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant.
