What is it?
Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy is a cream that aims to smooth the appearance of acne scarring, wrinkles and the visible signs of ageing. It primarily makes use of hydroxyl acids Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic, which are known for their ability to improve skin texture and quality; they have been blended to have a cosmetic resurfacing effect.
It can be applied anywhere on body where you feel that it is a problem area. This skin resurfacing cream is designed to fit easily into your day-to-day routine and only needs to be applied twice a day, once in the morning and once at night.
How does Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy work?
Quite often skin problems are associated with the accumulation of excess dead cells on the surface of the skin. This build up can contribute to the dull, blotchy and dry appearance of ageing skin. Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy aims to exfoliate dead skin, which not only helps to reduce the appearance of pore sizes, but also the appearance of your skin texture and colour.

Belongs to the class Alpha Hydroxy Acid and is commonly known as ‘fruit acids’, which occur naturally in sugar cane juice. Its incredibly effective in this skin resurfacing cream because of its small molecular structure that allows it to penetrate the surface of the skin easily.
This is another Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which is derived from sour milk and grain. The benefits of this lovely ingredient have been well documented for centuries- even Cleopatra's beautiful skin is said to be because she used to bathe in milk!
Both Glycolic and Lactic Acid work together in this skin resurfacing cream by loosening or breaking up the thick outer layer of skin. Such microscopic exfoliation activity is known to iron out texture problem areas, such as acne, fine wrinkles, pigmentation and skin expressions. Skin Doctors Gamma Hydroxy is therefore able to offer a fantastic benefit of helping to kick-start your skin into its natural regeneration process, stimulating collagen and the skin growth cycle.
This encourages the elimination of dead skin cells and has the ability to penetrate into the pores. This advantage makes it a great aid for improving blemishes by breaking down blackheads and whiteheads and clearing out clogged pores.
