Using acids as part of your skincare routine might seem intimidating, but we're here to dispel that myth. Salicylic acid is an extremely effective ingredient in facial skincare products particularly for those with oily or acne-prone skin. It's a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that works by penetrating deep into pores to unclog them, exfoliating dead skin cells and helping prevent new blemishes from forming.
Salicylic acid helps regulate oil and sebum production, which can reduce the appearance of pores and help prevent breakouts. It’s an effective exfoliant that can improve skin texture and tone by sloughing off dead skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter skin. Salicylic acid is effective at reducing blackheads and whiteheads. Regular use can also help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it can help lessen redness and swelling associated with acne and rosacea, making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin that simultaneously suffer from acne.
