Clean, rejuvenated, clear and purified skin is an invigorating way to begin the day. That’s essentially what exfoliation is all about. Out with old cells, in with the new; a clear canvas on which to display radiant beauty and youthful good looks.
About Beauty Salicylic Acid Exfoliator 2% offers a liberating exfoliation experience in a novel and convenient formula.
Thanks to the deep pore cleansing, superficial peeling and regenerative properties of Salicylic Acid, this hard working exfoliating agent is a tried and tested solution to both problematic skin types, and everyday skin rejuvenation.
How it works
Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxyacid, as such it is a very effective chemical peeling agent. With a 2% mixture, it creates an excellent balance in efficiently exfoliating the skin without any tissue damage or harmful burn.
Nowadays Salicylic Acid is synthetically produced under various scientific processes, but it was initially obtained from the bark of the willow tree and various wintergreen leaves. Its medicinal value as a pain reliever and fever reducer has been well documented since ancient times. For exfoliation purposes, it helps the dead epidermal skin cells to shed, exposing new, more vibrant and healthy cells below. It also penetrates deep into clogged pores to remove dirt.
This makes it one of the preferred ingredients for tackling problematic skin. Once pores have been penetrated and unclogged, it helps prevent them from clogging by constricting their diameter. This helps minimize future dirt and oil from building up in the skin.
Use after cleansing, as often as tolerated. Saturate a gauze pad with Salicylic Acid Exfoliator 2% and gently buff skin. Rinse with cool water to neutralize. Follow with a moisturizer to replenish moisture. Recommended for use on oily or problematic skin. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.
