Can You Use Glycolic Acid Everyday?

It is generally not recommended to use glycolic acid every day, as it can be irritating to the skin. It is typically used once or twice a week.

However, the frequency of use may vary depending on the concentration of the glycolic acid and the specific product that you are using. It is important to follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer and to start with a lower frequency of use, if you are using a high concentration of glycolic acid or if you have sensitive skin.

If you experience irritation or other adverse effects, you should reduce the frequency of use or stop using the product. It is always a good idea to consult with a dermatologist or other medical professional before starting any new skincare regimen.
