What are the functions of Salicylic Acid?

  • Different degrees of mildness. Fruit acids are soluble and have little regulation. They can easily penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and even into the dermis, thus becoming the main cause of skin tingling and redness.
Salicylic acid is fat-soluble, has a larger increase rate, and its effect is locked in the superficial device, so it is relatively more stable and irritating than fruit acids.
  • Different mechanisms of action. Salicylic acid can penetrate into the deep layers of pores along the sebaceous glands that secrete oil, dissolve the old and accumulated stratum corneum in the pores, and improve the appearance of enlarged pores. Therefore, it is often used to improve blackheads and acne skin care.
The function of fruit acid is to remove the accumulated aging cutin on the outer layer and accelerate skin renewal. It is mostly used in whitening, mark removal and exfoliation products.
In general, salicylic acid has the ability to exfoliate and clean pores, is less irritating to the skin than fruit acids, and is relatively safe.
However, it is still recommended to use with caution if you have sensitive or dry skin. Both fruit acid and the milder salicylic acid are irritating to the skin and can cause the stratum corneum to become thinner. It should not be used if the stratum corneum of sensitive or dry skin is too thin, especially for sensitive skin. If people with sensitive skin use such products, the consequences will be nothing more than a thinner stratum corneum, more serious redness and stinging, and the skin will be more susceptible to sunburn, so the gain outweighs the gain.
As for dry skin, if the skin appears rough, dry, dull and yellow, then you can selectively exfoliate according to the skin's acceptance, but in fact fruit acids are more suitable.
  • It is very important to make full use of Salicylic Acid for skin care without making the skin thinner. So how to use salicylic acid reasonably? The most suitable concentration limit for salicylic acid is 2%, and this range is sufficient for daily use. When the skin has become thinner and the skin's ability to retain water begins to decline, it is necessary to reduce the frequency of use of salicylic acid or reduce the concentration.

How to use Salicylic Acid to Remove Acne

  • What is Salicylic Acid? Salicylic acid, also known as salicylic acid, can be extracted from willow bark. Its chemical name is o-hydroxybenzoic acid. It is white needle-like crystals or hairy crystalline powder and is an important fine chemical raw material.
In the pharmaceutical industry, salicylic acid itself is a very versatile disinfectant and antiseptic. As a pharmaceutical intermediate, there are many derivatives of salicylic acid, one of which is aspirin, an old drug commonly used in medicine.
  • The principle of "Acne Removal" of Salicylic Acid. Salicylic acid has antibacterial properties against microorganisms when used externally. The principle of acne removal is to clear pores, dissolve the structural substances between the cuticles, cause the cuticles to fall off, and remove the accumulation of excessively thick cuticles. The famous saying of salicylic acid for removing acne is " As long as the pores are not clogged, acne will not pop up easily.”
  • Because Salicylic Acid is a fat-soluble organic acid, it can easily break down excess sebum on the skin surface. At the same time, it inhibits excessive secretion of sebum. It also has a strong dissolving effect on keratotic plugs and acne caused by sebum blockage, improves the unclean condition of hair follicle walls, helps sebum to be smoothly eliminated from pores, and at the same time, it quickly eliminates acne with its antibacterial properties. 

Daily care for acne-prone skin

  • Adequate cleansing. The main reason why acne is rampant is that we don't make enough effort in daily facial cleansing. This is not only true for the face, but also prone to acne on the body. For this reason, we must make great efforts to clean the skin and give it a Enough breathing space, and separate treatments for acne on the face and body:
Acne on the face: It is recommended to use a cleanser with a strong cleaning effect. Years of trial experience, cleansers containing charcoal and seaweed have the best cleaning effect. It is good and less harmful to acne-prone skin.
Acne on the body: It is recommended to use a shower gel with higher purity, and to change and wash the underwear for a long time to maintain personal hygiene.
  • Anti-inflammatory and antibacterial work for acne. If you want to save acne skin, while cleaning your skin, you should also pay attention to the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial work of acne. You can use some anti-inflammatory and antibacterial ointments to treat acne and avoid secondary infection and inflammation. , you must continue to use it until the acne disappears, once a day is OK.
  • The moisturizing and moisturizing work should not be lost. For skin with acne-prone skin, after doing the above work, the moisturizing and moisturizing work cannot be eliminated. The occurrence of acne is largely due to the endocrine disorder of the skin. The imbalance of water and oil leads to clogged skin pores and triggers the occurrence of acne. , for this reason, the most basic moisturizing work of the skin cannot be lost.

Things to note when using Salicylic Acid

  • Generally used for skin care in an appropriate amount, it will not cause systemic side effects. However, if it is used on a large area all over the body or used for a long time, care should be taken to prevent salicylic acid poisoning. Salicylic acid poisoning can cause symptoms such as dizziness, confusion, confusion, and shortness of breath. In severe cases, persistent tinnitus and severe head tingling may occur.
  • Pay attention to the following when using acne products containing salicylic acid: Avoid using them on inflamed and infected wounds. When using, be careful to avoid mucous membranes such as eyes, mouth and nose. If redness, swelling or burning sensation occurs at the application site, stop use immediately and rinse with clean water. Not suitable for long-term and large-area use to avoid poisoning. If you are using other types of topical medicines, you need to consult your doctor before determining whether you can use salicylic acid.

  • The so-called salicylic acid can remove acne. In fact, it simply removes the exfoliation of the skin. Acne is caused by an imbalance of sebum secretion from sebaceous glands, so salicylic acid cannot solve the problem of acne itself. When you use salicylic acid to treat acne, you will find that the acne gets better during use, but once you stop using it, the acne will return. Only by eating a reasonable diet, keeping a good mood, and regulating endocrine systems can we fundamentally solve acne from the inside out.
