Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid Skincare

What is Salicylic Acid?

Salicylic Acid is the most common type of beta hydroxy acid (BHA). Beta Hydroxy Acids are oil-soluble and have the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin for maximum results. Salicylic Acid is naturally derived from willow bark and is best known in the industry for helping to prevent acne and breakouts.

Which skin types is Salicylic Acid best for?

If you have oily and blemish-prone skin, Salicylic Acid is your go-to acid. Steer clear of this acid if you have dry skin as this could further aggravate the dryness.

What are the main benefits of Salicylic Acid?

  • Gently exfoliates
  • Reduces skin congestion by removing dead skin cells
  • Calms inflammation and redness
  • Decreases oil production
  • Unclogs pores

How to use Salicylic Acid?

Use a Salicylic Acid serum or cleanser once a day either in the morning or evening to control sebum production. If you use Salicylic Acid in the morning, make sure that you follow with an SPF as this BHA increases your skin's sensitivity to the sun.
