Azelaic acid and glycolic acid: which is better for exfoliation?
In my latest blog post, I explored the differences between azelaic acid and glycolic acid for exfoliation. After researching and comparing their effects, I found that glycolic acid is generally better for exfoliation due to its smaller molecular size, allowing it to penetrate the skin more effectively.

Ultimately, the choice between these two acids depends on your specific skin concerns and sensitivity levels. Stay tuned for a more in-depth analysis in my upcoming blog post!
