Congested Skin: Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid – unknown to most as a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), is commonly used to combat acne & can fight the visible signs of ageing at different concentrations. It works as an exfoliator to break down the bond that keeps dead skin cells together, which could block pores and create build-up of sebum resulting in blackheads and acne.  It can penetrate deep into the pore lining to effectively exfoliate & promote new cell turnover. Additionally, the acid can be used as an anti-inflammatory to calm irritation and redness that are symptoms of acne.
