For New York-based Danuta Mieloch, esthetician and founder of Rescue Spa, they are tried-and-true skincare wonders: “There’s a lot of flexibility when using acids, and it’s one of the quickest and most effective ways to tackle a multitude of skin concerns, from hyperpigmentation and large pores to skin texture and breakouts,” she adds.

“It’s OK to then combine active products once your skin has acclimatized,” says Mieloch. While many brands boast high acidity levels, more isn’t necessarily better. “Most of the products sold over the counter are fairly safe, but I suggest starting with something mild and leaving the higher percentages to the experts,” says Mieloch.
