Lactic Acid Exfoliators, Lotions, and Treatments for Your Smoothest Skin Yet

Slide 1 / 16
Acids are one of the most sought-after skincare ingredients, and for good reason. They offer gentle exfoliation and help combat pesky woes, so they can maximize results with every squeeze, pump, scoop, or drop of product. While there is an entire army of acids out there, one in particular is in high demand for acne-prone skin.

Lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), can work wonders on those who experience breakouts and excess oil on the regular. It rids the skin of blemish-causing bacteria (including dry skin buildup) and generates a smoother, clearer, healthier-looking complexion. And since it sloughs off surface pollutants, the products that come after have a better shot at penetrating the skin for top-notch results.
