This might be more of a dermatology question but I was hoping you could help me anyway.
type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid is best for post-inflammatory
hyper-pigmentation (I have brown spots left over from my acne marks):
glycolic acid, lactic acid, malic acid, tartaric acid, mandelic acid, or
citric acid? What concentration of AHA do I need for it to be
effective? Are there any other considerations (e.g. pH of the solution,
applying wet or dry, oxidation, etc.)?
I've been currently using
Garnier Clinical Overnight Dark Spot Peel daily at night. I've noticed a
slight difference in my skin texture, but it's no miracle in a jar. I
haven't really seen an improvement of my blotchiness. Does this product
even have enough Glycolic Acid?

want to switch from a daily overnight peel to a weekly peel (I'd rather
be using Retinol at night, and it's awkward to layer both of them given
the texture of this Garnier Peel). I assume if I'm using a peel less
frequently I should be using a higher concentration? What concentration
is best for weekly peels?
