Does Salicylic Acid Cure Acne?


Problematic skin, also classified as acne affects people of all races and ethnic groups and sometimes persists well into adulthood. Problem skin conditions can be caused due to a varying number of factors, such as genetic inheritance from parents who also suffered from problem skin conditions, environmental pollution, stressful lifestyles and hormonal imbalances.

Firstly, to address the symptoms that appear on the skin, we need to reduce the build-up of excess oil and dead skin cells. This will:

  1. normalise the function of cell renewal,
  2. reduce inflammation, and
  3. prevent bacteria formation deep within the hair follicle and pores.

Salicylic Acid or beta-hydroxy acid(BHA)is an incredible exfoliate that sheds dead skin cells by penetrating deep into the pore lining and inhibiting the sebum production. It is an oil-soluble exfoliator and is often considered better than Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) for pore cleaning. Mixed with Glycolic Acid in a Cleanser makes it a double “wammy” for skin with acne.
