The most common beta hydroxy acid, salicylic acid is naturally sourced from willow bark. It works by neutralizing acne-causing bacteria, by penetrating deep into pores to dissolve stubborn dirt and oils, cleansing and decongesting pores. It also works by accelerating cell turnover, speeding up the skin’s healing process. It is more often than not found in products that are formulated for acne, psoriasis, and rosacea.
Take caution if:
You’re pregnant, have extremely dry skin or taking certain medications as salicylic acid may interact with medication.
