This easy to use salicylic acid exfoliator works like a daily peel to consistently dissolve dead skin cells, oil and pore-clogging grime.
More details below.
Salicylic acid is the superstar ingredient for acne, as it actively dissolves oil and dead skin cells. And thanks to its small molecules its able to penetrate pores and clear out gunk.
This product works to clear up your skin and prevent future breakouts, oiliness and blackheads.
Apply to dry skin. Soak a cotton ball with the product and gently buff onto skin, concentrating on oily and clogged areas.
Leave on for up to 1minute—your skin may only tolerate it for 5seconds in the beginning, this is fine! You can build up tolerance.
Rinse with cool water to neutralize the acid. Apply following treatments and moisturizer.
Best used in the evening, but can be used anytime.
Salicylic acid, alcohol
*Note: alcohol is necessary because salicylic acid is oil soluble—without alcohol it would simply recrystallize. We choose to be transparent and call it what it is, not hide this necessary (and harmless here) ingredient behind some fancy-sounding scientific name.
*Also note: alcohol in small amounts, such as in our product, is a useful addition to an acne product because it delivers a slight drying effect to your skin.
