Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), a popular exfoliating ingredient in skincare. It helps to gently break down dead skin cells to promote natural exfoliation for clear, smooth and fresh skin. As a result, Salicylic Acid has become a star ingredient for oily, blemish-prone and dry-rough skin types. For blemish-prone skin Salicylic Acid helps to unclog dirt, oil and dead skin cells in the pores to reduce acne breakouts. For dry, rough and bumpy skin, this ingredient gently exfoliates dead skin cells to reveal radiance and softness.

All you need to know about Salicylic Acid

Can you use Salicylic Acid everyday?

Depending on the concentration and type of salicylic acid product, the frequency of  use can differ. A Salicylic Acid cleanser such as the CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser can be gentle enough to use everyday. Daily moisturisers that contain Salicylic Acid  are also suitable for everyday use. Serums and treatments typically have a stronger concentration of Salicylic Acid, and so it is recommended to slowly incorporate them into your skincare routine as your skin adjusts to them.

Is Salicylic Acid good for Keratosis Pilaris?

Yes, Salicylic Acid is an effective ingredient to use on Keratosis Pilaris. The natural exfoliation action of salicylic acid helps to remove dead skin cells and build up of keratin. As a result, pores are unclogged and rough bumps are smoothed. Using products like the CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser and Moisturiser are effective in achieving a smoother, softer and more even skin tone.

Can you use Salicylic Acid as a scalp treatment?

Yes, you can use Salicylic Acid as a scalp exfoliating treatment. It can help to relieve itchiness, irritation and discomfort that comes with many scalp conditions. Shampoos and treatments such as the Phytosquam Intense Anti-Dandruff Intensive Treatment Shampoo can be very effective in exfoliating dead skin cells and restoring and balancing the scalp.
