Lactic acid works best for drier skin, or those with sensitive skin because the penetration is slower. Glycolic is better for oily skin because it has a more drying nature. If you have a lot of scarring and sun spots the TCA peel is great for hyperpigmentation, scarring and uneven skin texture. I would suggest setting up an appointment with a medical professional in your area if you decide to go in this direction.
