Question What's the best STORE-bought thing to get rid of dead skin!?

I have alot of marks & discoloration on my face & I was wondering what is the best thing... to get rid of the messed up layer?? Something that will slough away blotches & reveal smoother & more even toned skin again! Thanx!

try not washing your face for like 3 days. Then it should all fall off

also to get rid of dead skin use an exfoliater and/or a mask a couple times a week

Geez, no help from anybody!! Okay, buy an exfoliating cloth, if it is for your body (never use this on your face). But primarily, you want an AHA lotion. Alpha Hydrox makes one that you can buy at the store. It's in the red box that stands out from everything else. Neutrogena is coming out with a Skin Smoothing Body Lotion, which I have already become addicted to (it isn't available everywhere yet). Basically, just go to the store, find a product with an AHA in it. Glycolic acid and lactic acid are the two primary ingredients. You want a moisturizer even though it makes more sense to have the dead skin removed during the shower. The moisturizer works a lot longer towards evening out your skin tone.

1> Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion (10% AHA)

or

2> Neutrogena Skin Smoothing Body Lotion (contains both an AHA and a BHA)

Basically, when a product says Anti-Wrinkle, it will have an AHA. This is a little misleading, really. AHA has many benefits, including the listed anti-wrinkle properties. It also helps even skin tone. Neutrogena also makes a Healthy Skin lotion (though far too small of a bottle for body application). This works to help give facial skin a good tone again.
