A glycolic acid lotion is the easiest way to incorporate this beneficial ingredient into your skin care routine. I absolutely love this acid and think everyone should be using it.
Below are my Top 3 recommended products, with benefits of each and who they are good for:
This is one of the best glycolic acid lotions available 'over the counter'.
With a whooping 15% concentration you will see significant results in a short time, and the longer you use it, the better your skin.
Highly recommended for all skin concerns - but extremely beneficial for blackheads, cystic acne and premature aging (as well as 'already aged skin'!)
I can't recommend this one highly enough, MD Forte Facial Lotion will change your skin!
This lotion contain 10% glycolic acid and is one of the best priced products out there. You can't beat it for value.
It also contains a significant amount of Vitamin E which works as an emollient and provides extra antioxidant benefits - however it is still fairly drying so best for oily skin.
It spreads easily so only a small amount is needed.
Fragrance free which is always a bonus - although some people may find the 'natural' smell less pleasant...
Another great product with a decent 10% glycolic acid concentration.
Dry and sensitive skins as it contains an emollient (cetyl ricinoleate) - which counteracts the drying affects of glycolic acid.
Non-greasy - dry/dehydrated acne prone skins will also benefit.
Use it at night to start with. This might be enough to see a difference with this product. Build up to twice daily after two weeks for acne prone, pigmented or thick skin.
A very good choice if you have dry skin, Aqua Face Cream will give you the refining and clearing benefits of this acid in a soothing, hydrating emollient base.
