So before shopping them, i first recommend you to know about them in detail
- SALICYLIC ACID
- GLYCOLIC ACID
- AZELAIC ACID
- MANDELIC ACID
- HYALURONIC ACID
- LACTIC ACID
THERE IS ONLY ONE beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that is salicylic acid and it works similarly to AHAs to exfoliate skin’s surface and hydrate. However, because BHA is oil-soluble (AHAs are not), it penetrates into the pore lining, where it works to dissolve clogs that lead to bumps and blemishes on skin’s surface.Anti inflammatory acid words well on oily skin reducing pores and acne. They have a exfoliating and calming property . It is available in .5% & 2 % for spot treatment and breakouts.

Lactic acid is a naturally-occurring substance found in milk. . The acid exfoliates and softens fine lines and wrinkles, but in a less irritating way than other acids. so it is used for sensitive skin and it is much milder than Glycolic acids making it less harsh on the skin and a better choice for sensitive complexions.
So i hope i gave you little enough knowledge about acids and these are the safe and common acids used presently. Now understand your skin concern and then use product accordingly. Do not fall for fancy names or because your favourite celebrity was the brand ambassador. Whenever you introduce a new ingredient or product to your skincare regimen, I always recommend doing a patch test first to ensure your skin doesn’t have a reaction. Patience is the key in skincare. Many products take their own time to show off the benefits and results, so keep calm and Glow.
