How to choose the right acid for your skin?

How to choose the right acid for your skin?

The different acids present in our cosmetics may sometimes seem to have the same effects, and their names are impossible to remember, but it is important to understand their differences so that you don't put the wrong substance on your skin. 

We've decided to put things in perspective and explain these different acids to you. 

Lactic acid

Lactic acid is the perfect care for sensitive skin. It lowers the PH of the skin, which eliminates harmful bacteria and soothes redness and irritation. It delicately exfoliates the skin and thus improves its quality. 

This type of acid is generally found in care products designed to purify the skin and eliminate impurities without attacking it. The Balance Booster cure by FillMed is the perfect treatment to recover a balanced, purified and imperfection-free skin. Enriched with lactic acid and salicylic acid, this booster will allow you to regain perfect skin in 30 days! 

To gently cleanse your skin while oxygenating it and reducing redness, we recommend Physiopure Foaming Jelly from SVR. 

Glycolic acid

It is an acid used for the chemical exfoliation of the skin. It penetrates deep into the skin and exfoliates evenly, bringing radiance and boosting cell renewal. It evens out the complexion and diminishes the appearance of spots, acne scars and fine lines. It is not recommended for sensitive and reactive skin. 

Say goodbye to dull complexion, fine lines and tired skin. The FillMed Glycopeel Mask is a revolutionary mask that restores radiance and uniformity to your skin. If you want a special treatment for the removal of pigmentation spots, choose the FillMed Bright Booster intensive treatment. It removes spots, treats the pregnancy mask and restores uniformity to your skin within 30 days. 

Salicylic acid

This is the ally of skins prone to imperfections. It exfoliates and purifies the skin, freeing the pores and eliminating impurities. Salicylic acid purifies the skin and prevents the appearance of pimples and other imperfections. 

Combination to oily skin is rid of impurities and excess sebum with Patyka Purifying Balancing Lotion. Enriched with salicylic acid, this lotion helps to smooth the skin, refine skin texture and tighten pores. 

After cleansing your skin, we recommend the application of a serum to treat blemishes. BD-Balance Serum is a serum that is perfectly suitable for oily skin with imperfections. It purifies the skin, eliminates imperfections and regulates the production of sebum. 

Retinoic acid

Retinoic acid is a natural vitamin A derivative. It increases the thickness of the epidermis which allows a filling of long-lasting wrinkles and accelerates cell renewal. It also has the ability to modify melanocytes, which prevents the appearance of pigmentation spots. 

The Lift ampoule is an ultra-concentrated vitamin A serum that retexturizes and smoothes the skin, refining the texture of the skin day after day and improving its quality. 

Re-Time Serum is a highly concentrated care that acts on wrinkles as well as on skin depression. The skin is plumped up and the signs of aging are blurred. 

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is one of the best known acids for its anti-aging properties. Indeed, it is revolutionary for its water retention capacity, which gives back to the skin the density lost with age. The skin is then intensely moisturized and wrinkles are plumped up from the inside.

A real concentrate of hyaluronic acid, Hydra Hyal Filorga Serum restructures and smoothes your skin and deeply moisturizes it. Your skin regains freshness, youth and firmness. 

For an organic and vegan option, we offer you the Advanced Plumping Serum from Patyka. The hyaluronic acid contained in its formula helps to boost your skin, moisturizing it deeply, while fighting against wrinkles. 


Gluconolactone is an acid that is both exfoliating and moisturizing, making it softer and more suitable for sensitive skin. In addition to its exfoliating and moisturizing properties, gluconolactone acts as a powerful antioxidant, fighting free radicals and UV damage. 

The Anti-Ox Mask is a micro-peeling mask in the form of a foam enriched with gluconolactone for a radiant and plumped up skin. Its formula exfoliates, smoothes and illuminates the complexion while moisturizing the skin.  Restore light and radiance to your skin in just 15 minutes! 

One of our favorite products is Filorga's Oxygen Peel. It helps us fight stress, pollution and fatigue. This lotion is a triple action oxygenating micro-peel: it exfoliates, plumps and illuminates the skin.
