If you have sensitive skin you shouldnt use products with alpha hydroxy acids unless they have a concentration below 10% it should be fine

Definitely, you should consult your doctor for the solution otherwise it may even cause allergy. In my suggestion you should go for an anti aging cream that contains natural ingredients in it

Most contain 10% alpha-hydroxy acid, which removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, allowing the antioxidant vitamins and your creams to smooth, firm, and nourish the healthy skin that lies beneath.

Thet are very good for fine lines and wrinkles. If you find them irritating perhaps go slow and use it only every second night. I would recommend only using it in the evening and your vitamin C serum in the morning.

Yes, you should ask your doctor for advice. Always try to use all natural skin care products for the best results.

I think you should consult your doctor. Coz you don't know what cream contains which acid and which reacts you. so First consult with your doctor.

Creams only apply the active ingredient topically.

Alpha hydroxy acids have irritation and sun sensitivity side effects.
