In general, the causes of facial breakouts in adults are the same as those in teenagers
Acne occurs in part when there is a buildup of dead skin cells in the pores. Salicylic acid helps normalize the shedding of the skin cells inside the pores and helps prevent the clogging that, along with oil and bacteria, can produce pimples.
Salicylic acid is available in creams, lotions, and gels. Over-the-counter products (items available without a prescription) contain 0.5 to 2 percent salicylic acid. Be patient. If used regularly, products containing salicylic acid are a proven method for treating acne and helping prevent future breakouts.
Swipe a pre-moistened pad over oily or acne-prone areas, such as the T-zone, to remove excess shine and help fight future breakouts.
Help outsmart acne with the genius of MICROCLEAR, a revolutionary technology that is scientifically shown to dissolve oil and help boost delivery of Salicylic acid to the source of breakouts.
Salicylic Acid & Acne
If you look closely at the labels of many acne medications, you’ll notice that the active ingredient in many is salicylic acid. Salicyic acid is a member of a class of medications known as keratolytics. Keratolytics work by softening the top layer of the skin (epidermis), making it easier to remove dead and shedding skin cells.
