Azelaic acid: what it is, and why you should *seriously* consider adding it to your skincare routine

23/06/2021 / Editor's picks

Hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, AHAs… you’ve barely googled ‘skincare’ and these buzzwords are already flying at you left, right, and centre. Rightly so though, because acids are quickly becoming recognised as some of the most effective active ingredients in skincare products. The AHAs and BHAs are now widely established – and sworn by – but there’s one acid that is often (wrongly) overlooked: azelaic acid. It has a tonne of benefits, and is super easy to incorporate into your skincare routine, so we think it’s high time to change that.
