The idea of putting acids on your skin can seem daunting. But in actuality, there are so many acids out there that do wonders for skin, and it’s just about finding the right one for you. Here is our breakdown of acids by skin type:
OILY + ACNE PRONE
Finding products that treat oily skin without causing an onset of breakouts can be difficult. Most oily, acne-prone people are familiar with salicylic acid as the holy grail acid for blemishes. But here are some more acids and skin care products that will meet your skin’s needs without aggravating it:
Azelaic Acid
This unique acid is amazing at soothing and smoothing skin. Azelaic acid is known for its anti-inflammation properties, which can be beneficial to those with acne-prone skin and frequent breakouts. What makes it so powerful is that it inhibits the growth of acne-causing bacteria, making it a preventative skin care move. Although this particular acid can be hard to find, it’s definitely worth looking into. We recommend The Ordinary’s Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% if you want to try out this acid on oily skin.
Glycolic Acid
Glycolic acid is a great option for people disposed to frequent breakouts. This acid reduces the excessive oil produced by your skin, which is usually the culprit causing acne and blemishes. The Skinfood Tea Tree Bubble Cleansing Foam is perfect of oily or acne prone skin since it uses the combination of glycolic acid with tea tree oil to thoroughly cleanse and prevent future breakouts.
Hyaluronic Acid
This ingredient is a great way to give your oily skin a little TLC without inciting more oil production, and thus clogged pores. Like I said before, what makes HA such an effective ingredient is that it is actually something already produced in the body. The version made for skin care pumps up the naturally occurring acid and locks the moisture in.
The Missha Super Aqua Ultra Water-full Clear Cream is a personal HA-infused favorite of mine that is especially great for oily skin or those with combination skin. This oil-free clear cream adds a healthy dose of sealed moisture to your daily routine without leaving you with shiny skin.
Lactic Acid
Famously used by Cleopatra when she took milk baths to soften her skin, lactic acid is used in tons of skin care products today. For oily skin, lactic acid is a gentle way to help control oiliness and breakouts, and even helps repair acne scars. It works solely on the surface of your skin and is therefore gentler than some of the other acids for oily skin, making it perfect for people with oily yet sensitive skin.
A great product with lactic acid is the Innisfree Pore Clearing Clay Mousse Mask with Super Volcanic Cluster. This mask uses lactic acid as well as volcanic rock clusters to remove blocked pores and impurities, leaving you with softer, less oily skin.
Salicylic Acid

Derived from willow bark, salicylic acid is probably the most widely recognized treatment for acne-prone skin. Salicylic acid breaks down the oily sebum that clogs pores and helps prevent blemishes and breakouts. It also increases cell turnover, helping to repair damage from acne as well as treat it. The CosRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser is a great water-based cleanser to use if you’re dealing with frequent breakouts and want a gentle, yet effective, way to get some salicylic acid into your routine.

COMBINATION(My skin ^^)
Anyone with combination skin knows just how confusing navigating skin care can be. When different parts of your face have varying concerns, it can be tricky to strike a balance with your routine. These acids are the best of both worlds and will leave your skin feeling refreshed and rehydrated:

BHA Exfoliants

These particular acid exfoliants, beta hydroxy acids, are great for combination skin. Not only do they get rid of excess dry skin cells, they also leave your skin more hydrated. This is because BHAs work inside the pores as well as on the surface of the skin. They’re also a super proactive anti-aging treatment since they help skin cells regenerate and repair sun damage. The CosRX Natural BHA Skin Returning Emulsion is perfect for getting a little BHA dose to combat your combination skin.

Linoleic Acid

Think of this one as Oleic Acid lite. Oils high in linoleic acids—like passion fruit, sea buckthorn, and evening primrose oil—are great for combination skin because rather than block pores they help to maintain and clean them. They will insure your dry areas get some well-deserved moisture without upsetting the oily parts of your face. The Banila Co Clean It Zero Purity is a great oil cleanser that uses a blend of oils, including primrose oil, to gently cleanse. As a sensitive, combination skin person myself, I can’t get enough of this stuff.

Malic Acid

This acid makes up a family that includes fruits, such as apples and pears. Malic acid serves as a gentle exfoliant that also adds moisture back into the skin. Additionally, it can help with hyperpigmentation. The Klavuu White Pearlsation Revitalizing Pear Treatment Toner is a great option for combination skin, using apple fruit water and pearl extract to gently tone and exfoliate.
