DO YOU KNOW WHAT CAUSES ACNE?
Acne forms due to an excessive production of sebum, initiated by the sebaceous glands in our skin. Sebaceous hypersecretion leads to an obstruction of the pores and the formation of comedones. In the next stage, inflammation occurs, causing redness and pimples to appear on the surface of the skin.
Salicylic acid is an active ingredient used in non-prescription acne treatments. It is a safe and effective ingredient to treat mild to moderate acne. Upon application, it unclogs the pores, reduces blackheads, and dries up whiteheads and blemishes. Products that contain salicylic acid may cause tingling and mild redness of the skin. Consult your doctor for advice.
