BHA (salicylic acid): the fastest way to smoother skin

Salicylic acid products for healthier skin

Exfoliation is an essential step in your skincare routine. Exfoliants gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells, helping to reveal the healthy layer of skin underneath. Salicylic acid (BHA) is an exfoliating ingredient which penetrates deep inside the skin's pores, helping to unclog any excess oil and impurities to prevent breakouts and blackheads. Salicylic acid skincare products are also anti-inflammatory, helping to calm and minimize redness.

Are you considering a salicylic acid peel? You may want to first add a BHA exfoliant to your skincare routine. Daily use of an exfoliant will enhance the effectiveness of the other products in your routine as they will be absorbed faster because they don't have to penetrate a layer of dead skin cells first.

How to use and buy salicylic acid products

How should you exfoliate?

If you are new to using salicylic acid products, we recommend initially using one twice a week and then gradually build up usage to once or twice daily. Apply after cleansing and toning. A liquid BHA exfoliant is best applied with a cotton pad. Apply BHA gel or BHA lotion the same way you would a day or night cream. Apply over the entire face, including the eye area (avoid the lower lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. Then simply follow the rest of your skincare routine. For daytime, follow a moisturizer that contains a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater as the last step in your routine.
