Hello beauties! The number one skin condition that most people face is acne. Which is why I constantly search for ingredients and products that would either help prevent it or clear it. And that brings us to today’s topic. We need to discuss if the proclaimed best anti-inflammatory, also know as salicylic acid, is good for our sensitive skin.

What is Salicylic Acid?

Salicylic acid is used in many cosmetic products for its anti-inflammatory properties. It’s consider a BHA, which means that it’s an oil loving ingredient. And because of this, it’s able to dissolve the oil and dirt in pores. This makes salicylic acid great for  the removal of blackhead and whitehead acne.

How does it effect your sensitive skin?

In terms of how well it might work for sensitive skin types. Experts are saying that it may    cause a burning sensation to those of us with more sensitive skin. But it is great if you are more prone to acne. However, regular use of salicylic acid, is associated with skin thinning. It can damage the epidermis, which will then make the skin more prone to sun damage. So if you decide to use salicylic acid for your acne treatment, be mindful of that.
