Dear Nadianasser, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
It is good to use glycolic acid cream-- in long term, it will act as mild but good & regular peeling-- so effects will be marvelous. Continue using it for 3-4 months & let me know the results. Also, avoid sunlight & use sunscreens. You can use tea tree oil but don't mix it with cream. Good luck.
