A glycolic acid lotion is an easy way to incorporate this beneficial ingredient into your skin care routine. I absolutely love this acid and think everyone should be using it.
On this page are my Top 3 recommended products, with benefits of each and who they are good for.
Note: An even better way to getting the benefits of this acid is to use a daily exfoliator - which is then followed by your normal moisturizer.
This allows the glycolic acid to really do it's work which may give faster results, and also allows the ingredients in your moisturizer to rehydrate, nourish and protect, just as they should!
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.
