Salicylic Acid Fades acne scars.
There are a many methods available to treat acne today. One such treatment option is to use Salicylic acid.
What is salicylic acid?
It is a mild acid that works as an salicylic acid exfoliator agent. It means that it makes the skin lose more dead skin and renew with fresh skin. Apart from being used to treat acne, it is also used to treat acne scars in mild cases.
How it works
Salicylic acid peels of the top layer of the skin thereby opening the plugged follicies which end up becoming the sites of future acne. It is often misunderstood as reacting on existing acne by “releasing” oil that is trapped in the skin. Rather, it only prevents acne from occurring.
Where to get it
Many over the counter products such as lotions, creams and alcohol contain salicylic acid as one of the ingredients. When choosing an acne product check for acne products with salicylic acid as one of the active ingredients.
Benefits of salicylic acid
Salicylic acid for acne is a weak acid which means that it is ideal for mild cases of acne. When used to treat acne scars, it takes a very long time to show results.
Side effects of using salicylic acid
Usage of salicylic acid can leave your skin dry and irritated. This can however be overcome by using a moisturizer of your choice.
A common mistake is to buy just about any product that has salicylic acid or benozyl peroxide in it. Acne can be aggravated instead of being cured if you do not carefully choose a cream according to your particular acne condition. No two people will respond the same way to a single acne treatment. So what worked for your friend may not work for you at all.
Acne Book is THE acne product that I found very valuable in helping me get rid of acne. I found this book while browsing the internet one afternoon. I was skeptical at first but was reassured by the money back guarantee. The book has a step by step plan that just about everyone can follow to clear their skin and get rid of acne.
