Youthful skin: Facial skin is often treated with Retin-A or Tazorac (tazarotene). These creams sometimes cause the skin to become dry, but they may also help to stimulate collagen growth. They cause a long term skin slough. Some skin lotions contain glycolic acid. This also helps long term skin slough, which helps to rejuvenate skin. But one must titrate these lotions. Too much will cause drying and skin irritation
