This is my first post.

I'm using 12% gylcolic acid in a cream base every night before I go to bed.

I would like to know will it effect my skin on long term basis?

Thank You

The glycolic acid will thin your skin out over time and make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so I suggest getting a good sunscreen with SPF 45 or higher.
