Salicylic Acid not only treats adult cystic acne but it builds collagen.
Salicylic Acid is an ideal acne treatment for skin over 30, it purges pores of acne-causing contents, fights cystic acne, eliminates blackheads, AND helps build collagen. WOW!
How Salicylic Acid Works for Adult Acne
Far less drying and irritating than its’ teenage counterparts, Salicylic Acid gets VERY deep into pores and clears out all the gunk. Alternating off Salicylic and Glycolic acids clear pores out from top to bottom.
The key to getting Salicylic Acid to work for you is finding the right formula for your skin. Drugstore Salicylic Acid did little for my breakouts, whereas Clinique and The Ordinary both produce impressive Salicylic Acids that work for grownups with cystic acne. But your experience may be different. If one brand doesn’t work for you, don’t give up on Salicylic Acid altogether.
Salicylic Acid and Blackheads
SALICYLIC ACID TRICK: Do you have blackheads on the sides of your nose or on your cheeks? Instead of attempting to scrub or squeeze them, apply a thin layer of salicylic acid each night over them for 30 days to completely purge pores of blackheads.
