That gorgeous blood red serum you've been seeing all over social media... what actually is it? I know I initially only wanted it because of the major vampire vibes but oh boy do the benefits stack high for Salicylic Acid.
Essentially, it's beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that exfoliates your skin and cleanses your pores, greatly reducing acne and skin impurities.
It works best on mild acne and breakouts that include your usual whiteheads and blackheads, yet still works amazingly on more intense skin reactions. Further, it's an amazing great prevention tool!
Your pores are at the base of your hair follicles all over your body. Due to their concaving nature, dead skin cells, oil and dirt are easily trapped inside your pores. This is what leads to either;
Blackheads - Open pores that are clogged
Whiteheads - Closed pores that area clogged
Or Pimples - pustules
This is where the magical salicylic acid comes in. It dissolves these trapped dead and dirty cells and clears your skin. Like most skincare, the best results are normally seen after several weeks, so stay persistent!
