Salicylic acid in Skincare: Benefits and uses

Salicylic acid is a great component for those with oily or acne-prone skin. It is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) and is a topical treatment used to treat skin-related issues. It belongs to the group of drugs known as keratolytic agents. Salicylic acid has the ability to work deep within the skin. It is a powerful acne treatment because of this and also serves as an anti-inflammatory agent and dissolves dead skin cells that clog pores. People with acne can use salicylic acid (topically) to help clean and prevent zits and skin blemishes. It is also used to treat skin conditions that involve scaling or an overgrowth of skin cells, including ichthyoses (inborn diseases that result in skin dryness and scaling), dandruff, corns, calluses, warts on the hands or feet, and even psoriasis, which is a skin condition that causes red, scaly patches to appear on some parts of the body. Topical salicylic acid cures acne by bringing down inflammation and redness and opening up clogged skin pores so that pimples can contract. 

Benefits of Salicylic acid:

  • Unclogs and clean out pores: Salicylic acid aids in removing blocked pores and preventing additional blockage.


  • Gets rid of dead skin cells: It gently exfoliates the dead skin cells by breaking the excess oil bond and trapped sebum


  • Controls oil: It Helps to control the overproduction of sebum and oil 


  • Prevents come dones: Prevents the development of whiteheads and blackheads by directly targeting them and preventing their return to the skin’s surface.


  • Reduces inflammation: Acne redness and irritation are addressed by anti-inflammatory qualities.


Usage of Salicylic Acid: 

Topical salicylic acid comes in the form of cleansers, creams, lotions, liquids, gels, ointments, or shampoos that can be used to clean the skin or scalp. Depending on the condition being treated and the substance being used, topical salicylic acid may be used frequently (up to several times per day) or rarely (up to several times per week) or can be carefully used as directed. Your skin may become dry or sensitive at first if you are treating your acne with topical salicylic acid. You can avoid this by using the product less frequently initially and gradually increasing your usage when your skin has gotten used to the treatment. While using this medication for the first time, apply a small amount of the salicylic acid product to one or two small places you want to treat for three days. Topical salicylic acid should not be used on skin that is swollen or broken.
