Dust, humidity, and heat waves are some of the most common problems of the summer season. This is when our skin experiences increased sebum production, clogged pores, comedones and sensitivity. To tackle these conditions, there are two possible situations; one is to be accustomed to this. Two, incorporate skincare ingredients and products that will balance your sebum production and keep it comfortable, hydrated and free from all skin concerns. Most people would choose the latter one. Let's get to know the holy grail ingredient, which will be a blessing in disguise for you this season.
Salicylic acid is the first thing that comes to mind when we think of acne treatments. This "holy grail" combats the bacteria that cause acne, reduces inflammation, penetrates the skin to remove excess sebum, and prevents blackheads and whiteheads. It also exfoliates the skin by removing dead cells, which is an additional benefit. This ingredient has been tried and tested by billions of skincare enthusiasts in addition to being recommended by dermatologists. Salicylic acid is used in many ways: pads, soap, gel, ointment, lotion, face masks, serums, or cleansers.
