Salicylic Acid Treatment Products
Salicyic acid is a member of a class of medications known as keratolytics. Keratolytics work by softening the top layer of the skin, making it easier to remove dead and shedding skin cells.
Acne occurs in part when there is a buildup of dead skin cells in the pores. Salicylic acid helps normalize the shedding of the skin cells inside the pores and helps prevent the clogging that, along with oil and bacteria, can produce pimples.
Used regularly, products containing salicylic acid are a proven method for treating acne and helping prevent future breakouts.
Salicylic acid is found in a variety of products, including cleansers, moisturisers, serums, eye creams, hand and body lotions, foot creams and exfoliants. When choosing a product, also consider the strength of salicylic acid.
Individuals with sensitive skin should start with a lower strength of salicylic acid and slowly increase the concentration as needed. If your skin becomes excessively dry or irritated after daily use, use the product every other day or every few days to minimize side effects.
