Glycolic Acid

I am interested in trying glycolic acid but i am nervous as i have sensitive skin, My skin is very oily and blackhead prone but is also flaky.
Please can anyone who has used this ingredient give me some advice before i spend my hard earned cash.

Re: Glycolic Acid

I use glycolic and have had very good luck with it. You should be careful not to get too high of a concentration, at first, because it can be a bit drying, but it should help with your oilyness and blackheads. Just wash with it once a day, to start, and see how your skin responds. I noticed that my skin tone improved greatly and my breakouts were not so bad, after the initial breakout period, which was mild.

I will say, I have been much happier with glycolic cleanser than I was with benzoyl peroxide. I know that dermatologists think that BP is the best thing since sliced bread, but it dried my skin out so bad and it took forever to get moisture back!
