Key Skincare Ingredient: Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid has a number of key skincare benefits which are as follows:

  • Exfoliation - Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that penetrates the pores, effectively exfoliating the skin. This helps unclog pores, removing dirt, oil, and dead skin cells that can lead to acne and blackheads.
  • Acne Treatment - Salicylic acid is renowned for its acne-fighting properties. It targets and treats existing blemishes while preventing new ones from forming.
  • Oil Control - This BHA helps regulate sebum production, making it an excellent choice for those with oily or combination skin.
  • Anti-Inflammatory - Salicylic acid has anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce redness and inflammation associated with acne and other skin conditions.
  • Skin Smoothing - Regular use of salicylic acid can lead to smoother, more even-textured skin by sloughing off rough patches and promoting skin renewal.
  • Minimised Pores - By cleaning out pores and preventing them from becoming clogged, salicylic acid can make pores appear smaller and less noticeable.
  • Dark Spot Fading - It can fade dark spots and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), leaving behind a more even complexion.
