When you think of applying an “acid” to the face it may sound scary. Yet when certain kinds of acids are used in skincare in the right formulation, they are extremely beneficial to the skin.
Let's take a look at the most common acids in skincare and how to choose the ones right for you. We'll cover ascorbic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, mandelic acid, and kojic acid in this article.
The main three categories for choosing an acid are:
Mature Skin (Anti-aging): Glycolic, Lactic, Ascorbic
Fading Pigmentation: Glycolic, Lactic, Ascorbic, Kojic
Acneic Skin: Azelaic, Salicylic, Glycolic, Lactic, Mandelic
You'll need to experiment to find the best combinations that work for YOUR skin. The safest and easiest one to try first is products with Glycolic Acid. It's the closest to an all-in-one skincare acid as they come. Revive Exfoliating Serum is my favorite.
To use conflicting acids simply use one in the AM, the other in the PM. You'll still get results using them once daily.

It's no secret that there are endless anti-aging serums and creams on the market. And, if you're like me, you might like the idea of a "holy grail" product—something that will solve all (or most) of your skincare concerns.
