What Is Salicylic Acid Peel ?
Salicylic Acid is the key ingredient for restoring purity and clarity to the skin. It is a highly effective chemical exfoliant and an excellent pore cleanser. It works by gently removing old cells from the skin, and may also help to boost collagen production.
Because salicylic acid has a larger molecular structure to Glycolic Acid it stays on the surface of the skin longer giving it fantastic pore clearing capabilities.
If you have surface discolouration from breakouts or sun damage, our salicylic acid works amazingly well in conjunction with our glycolic acid which can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
How Does It Work ?
This powerful product is designed to work within the pores, helping to reduce the appearance of breakouts, blackheads, enlarged pores and whiteheads. The combination of salicylic acid and aloe vera can soothe the appearance of red, angry looking breakouts that typically appear on the jawline or cheeks.
How is this good for spots ?
Spots usually occur as hair follicles get clogged by the oil your skin naturally produces. Normally the sebum (natural oil in skin) travels up the hair follicle and out to the surface of the skin. However, when skin cell turnover is slowed, sebum can get trapped within the follicle, bacteria multiply within the clogged pores and so a spot is formed. Using this product regularly helps by removing the old skin cells and the grime that's blocking up pores so stops the spot cycle.
If you have acne- Acne is a medical condition, while salicylic acid is an amazing, well known spot treatment acne often requires prescribed medical treatment. A good, daily skincare routine is important for skin health and skincare products will support your acne treatments but will not treat acne.
How does it reduce blackheads? Looking to shrink your pores and banish blackheads? This oil soluble formula goes straight to the source of the problem, clearing out blockages and shrinking pores with each use. This powerful formula also exfoliates to help remove the top layer of dead skin, unblocking pores and regulating oil production.
Are there any side effects? There is a possibility that you may notice some light flaking or dry patches when you first use the salicylic acid. You may experience some redness but this will fade within a few hours. You skin may also feel slightly itchy while peel treatments are applied to the skin, this is perfectly normal as it's part of the regeneration process as salicylic acid does exfoliate the skin. This product is not designed to physically peel the skin.

If you are undergoing any kind of intense beauty treatment (microdermabrasion, glycolic acid treatment, laser therapy etc) consult your therapist before purchase. If you have any broken veins/capillaries we recommend avoiding these areas. If you're on medication which increases the skins sensitivity or causes severe dryness we do not recommend acid based products during treatment and for 12 months after your course has been completed. People who commonly have cold sores may find that chemical peels can cause an outbreak of cold sores and may want to take their medication before use or avoid use altogether, do not apply acid products to your skin while you have an active cold sore.
