Glycolic acid is NOT burning what the heck

Recommended Posts

I recently started using glycolic acid as my nightly moisturizer because Dan said that it would help reduce Flakes and also is hydrating. Dan said that it's supposed to sting a little which means it's working. The first few times it was burning a little kind of like a stinky burn so I knew it was working it wasn't burning my skin like chemical painful though. I put a pretty decent amount on and I don't feel any burning or tingling at all. Should I use more I mean I used pretty good amount though so I'm kind of confused? LOL thanks guys

Hello bbaye, Dan has mentioned in a video on the acne.org youtube channel that some people don't experience any sort of discomfort at all from using the AHA (as it was in my case) but that does not mean it is not working. Your skin is likely more resilient than most. I would be careful with using too much of the AHA all at once, I believe the recommended amount once your skin has adjusted is a finger length amount. Hope this helps.
