Salicylic Acid

Don’t you just hate acne?

Don’t you wanna get rid of it?

We all face acne/pimples at almost every stage of our lives and then we have to avoid makeup as its a believe that makeup will provoke the acne.

The ingredient i will talk today is the Salicylic Acid.  This ingredient really helps in preventing the acne. It is an exfoliant which helps in shedding away of dead skin cell.

How does it work?

The important question how does it work , this penetrate into the follicle(spherical group of cells) which encourage in shedding the dead skin cells and clears the pores of the skin. It prevents from blockage of pores and breakouts in skin.

This important ingredient also come in cosmetic brands, so whenever we go through an acne period of our lives we can switch to those brands. The product i use for the acne is Clinique Acne Solution which i will be reviewing soon.

The brands which contains this ingredient in their products are:

  • Clinique
  • Neutrogena
  • Dermalogica
  • Circadia
I am sure there will lot more brands using this ingredients.
Expected Side Effects
Besides the positive side there is always another side and is the side effects. Salicylic Acid do have negative aspects as well.
  • Burning of skin
  • Dryness
  • Irritation
  • Peeling
  • Flaking of skin
Any of these side effects can be controlled by using a good oil free skin mosturizer.

  1. I have personally used Clinique and neutrogena products. Neurrogena sometimes leaves your skin dry, however; Clinique suits most of the skin types and does not leave your skin dry or dehydrated.
