Prone to breakouts? Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid—or BHA—that's effective at targeting the oil glands. Old and dead cells are lifted away! The difference between this and a glycolic acid (AHA) peel is that this is an oil-penetrating acid peel that is ideal for people with congested, acne-prone skin. A salicylic peel will clear away oils that build up and cause comedones (aka whiteheads and blackheads).
● Improved skin texture and clarity to rejuvenate dull, tired complexion
● Diminishes the appearance of sun damage and lightens hyperpigmentation or age spots
● Reduced appearance of acne and acne scars
Plus, its anti-inflammatory properties provide relief to people with inflamed blemishes. Studies have also shown that BHA products can destroy bacteria that settles within the pores and causes blemishes, blackheads, and rashes. Salicylic acid peels are among the best treatments for blemish-prone skin including blackheads and whiteheads.
