Can both these acid be used together. Currently i am using 0.5% salicylic acid twice daily as it helps to control my oil production and prevent acne. Can i apply 5% glycolic acid 30 min after applying salicylic acid to fade pigmentation?
Salicylic Acid Together With Glycolic Acid

You can use both! Salicylic acid works more for unclogging the pores and glycolic acid works for renewing the layer of your skin. Just be sure to use sunscreen during the day because the glycolic acid will make your skin more sensitive to the sun.

Using one right after the other can cause irritation making acne look worse. So, use the bha during the day and the aha at night.
Mandelic acid is a great option as its a two in one. It acts like a bha and aha. It's very strong and I only use it once or twice a week. I use a 5% mandelic acid toner from muac.
