As mentioned, it’s also suitable for those with sensitive skin. ‘This is a great ingredient for those with more sensitive skin types as it is a kind-to-skin ingredient yet still effective,' explains Dr Fab. Are there any ingredients to avoid with succinic acid? Glycolic acid and lactic acid are the two alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that often appear in OTC acne treatments. Better known as anti-ageing ingredients, they’re also effective for treating acne because they stimulate cell turnover in the top layers of your skin. “These acids can help treat acne by reducing inflammation and clearing away dead skin cells,” says Hussain Abdeh. “Furthermore, they promote new skin growth. This helps to create fresh, smooth skin to improve its overall appearance, also reducing any acne scarring.”Another pro? It's a lot more gentle compared with other skincare acids. So if your skin is acne-prone and sensitive, this major multi-tasker is unlikely to cause your skin to react. Which skin types can use it? My skin is sensitive, and very dry as a whole. However, I do get hormonal breakouts on my chin. My skin used to be a lot worse a few years ago, but it has improved dramatically after cutting out dairy from my diet. Salicylic acid based blemish treatments work well for me, and I tend to gravitate towards them as I know they’re effective for me, however The Inkey List Succinic Acid Blemish Treatment has been disappointing. SHOULD I USE THIS BEFORE OR AFTER MY OTHER SKINCARE PRODUCTS?You can apply Succinic Acid directly to areas of concern up to 3x a day both over and under make-up.

Succinic acid helps to boost your cellular renewal, which means it’s helping to boost how well your skin cells are functioning,' says Dr Shotter. 'It’s also a powerful antioxidant, helping to counteract oxidative stress in the skin.' The former promotes skin rejuvenation leaving your complexion looking firm, and the latter protects the skin and keeps it looking bright. It helps acne-prone skin Don't keep touching your face, especially your chin, which naturally produces more oil and sebum, and definitely don't squeeze! CAN THIS BE USED LONG TERM?The product is designed to be used if and when needed to target breakouts and can be used long term.CAN I USE IT EVEN IF I DON’T HAVE ACTIVE BREAK OUTS? We’d recommend only using this product if you wish to treat spots and breakouts that are currently present on your skin.

Our tried and tested spot treatments typically contain a powerful combination of the above to target blemishes at the source (often, before they have the chance to surface). There’s no one-size-fits-all solution, and Dr Perry warns that most skincare products require time and patience to be effective.Another benefit of succinic acid is that it can act as an antimicrobial agent, meaning it can help to control bacteria on the skin that can lead to acne and breakouts. What skincare conditions does it treat? It’s best to speak to a pharmacist before buying acne treatment,” says Hussain Abdeh. “Your skincare regimen can be built around your treatment, too. For instance, if your acne treatment tends to dry out your skin, apply a gentle moisturiser after the acne medicine has absorbed into the skin. This will give your medication enough time to get to work, without compromising the quality of your skin.” Tea tree oil has anti-inflammatory properties to help calm acne and reduce redness. It’s natural, but no weakling: 5% tea tree oil has results comparable to 5% benzoyl peroxide. Like benzoyl peroxide, prolonged use may not suit sensitive skin. In terms of the functionality, salicylic works to prevent the development of future breakouts by unclogging our pores. Succinic acid on the other hand, directly kills the acne-causing bacteria. Is succinic acid safe to use every day? Acne tends to be associated with youthful oily skin, but people with dry, over-sensitive complexions can often suffer from spots as well – and then find that many acne treatments are too harsh for their skin type. No such problems with this calming lotion, which is formulated with all manner of natural bio-active ingredients, including xylitol and chlorella extract to soothe irritation, aid recovery and rebalance healthy bacteria. However, the main active ingredient is salicylic acid, which gets to work clearing pores and preventing breakouts.

Although the ingredients sound promising as an acne treatment, Dr. Laftah explained that there is a misconception that antiseptic ingredients will help to reduce bacteria and inflammation associated with acne, which isn't always the case. The reason the cream works so well as a nappy rash cream is because of the soothing skin barrier repair ingredient of lanolin, which can unfortunately be highly comedogenic (meaning it can clog pores) for those with acne. Described as being easily-absorbed, and non-greasy, which is suitable for all skin types, but particularly great for those with blemish-prone skin.

The “very high concentration of free acids” does sound scary, but it works to battle breakouts. Most people shouldn’t suffer any ill effects, but as with all acne treatments, it’s worth testing the product on a small area of your skin before you get carried away. In addition, be absolutely sure to wear sunscreen for a week after your peel, because AHAs make your skin much more susceptible to sunburn.
