Keeping names of skincare acids on tips is no more just dermatologists’ interest.

Are you intrigued to know about it and wonder if your skin type is worth taking the salicylic shot for? How long does it take to work and how effective is it? Let us unravel all your salicylic acid dilemma and get you introduced to the many benefits of this power-packed ingredient.

First of all let us know what skin type it caters to? Salicylic acid serves oily and acne-prone skin. Salicylic acid comes under the category of Beta-Hydroxy Acids which is ideal for exfoliation by removing the outer layer of the skin thus leading to an even-toned clear skin. By eradicating the dead-cells build-up, it gets rid of the pimple-causing oils and pollutants and all the dirt & grime and makes way for healthy skin.

Let us delve into its numerable benefits for your skin -


  • Controls sebum production - Salicylic acid penetrates deeper in the layers of the skin and absorbs any excess oil/sebum being produced by the skin. This makes it a must-have product for people with oily skin, especially in the summer heat. 

  • Aids pimples - Being an exfoliator, it eliminates the dead skin cells trapped in the hair follicles and unclogs pores, thereby eradicating the pimple-causing germs and bacteria dwelling on the skin. It also breaks-down the sebum production thus inhibiting new pimples.

  • Prevents Acne breakouts - Pimples and Acne are the results of accumulation of dead skin cells and excess sebum production in the skin. This AHA influences and restricts the sebum production, thus preventing further acne breakouts.

  • Used as a Peeling Agent - A slightly higher concentration of Salicylic acid is professionally used in chemical peels to prevent acne breakouts and to get even toned skin. Being able to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, it even gets rid of age spots/dark spots and age related hyperpigmentation/melasma.
