A brighter skin will always brighten your day. But a brighter day can NEVER brighten your blemished skin or low confidence.
I haven’t had an acne all my teenage and youth days. Had been blessed with clear skin no matter what my food intake was, no scars, no spots, no acne... just a flawless bright skin.
But BOOM & now I am suffering from hormonal acne which never fails to leave me alone and make my skin look more dull !!!. I decided to get my hands on The Ordinary Salicylic acid 2% Solution from @deciem
REASON: is that Salicylic acid is one of the most important treatments for acne on oily skin though I have a combination skin.
The problems with most acne products that list salicylic acid as an ingredient are that they do not contain the right concentration of salicylic acid at the right pH.
* This ACID is lipophillic, which means it can penetrate oily skin & clogged pores, resulting in a deep cleaning.
* SALICYLIC ACID can reduce sebum secretion, which is another way it can help reduce acne. * This decreases the number of pimples that form and speeds healing.
* Alcohol-free, silicone-free, cruelty-free & vegan.
* Lastly, it's also an anti-inflammatory, which can help calm inflamed acne.
* Apply during AM &PM.
* If combi-skin, use on alternate days.
* Before applying each time, wash face with a mild cleanser & then pat dry.
* Apply as a spot corrector, don’t apply all over your face as it is often too strong for dark skin.
* Must must musttttt use sun-screen when using acids.
* This acid may leave your skin a bit dry, hence you should avoid any harsh cleansers & astringents.
* SUNBURN ALERT: This product contains a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that may increase ur skin's sensitivity to the sun & particularly the possibility of sunburn.
