If you’ve decided that you’d like to try adding salicylic acid to your skincare routine, you have plenty of options. Salicylic acid can be found in skin care products ranging from cleansers and toners through to moisturisers and body wash. When used in a cleanser or toner, you can apply at the start of your routine. If you opt for a serum, use it directly after cleansing.
It’s always best to start your BHA journey by patch testing the product you want to start using on a small area of skin. This way you can see how your skin responds to the salicylic acid. After steady use and a bit of patience, you will begin to see results at around a month. Like all good things, salicylic acid
doesn’t work overnight, but it’s worth the wait!
Finally, it’s crucial to remember to apply sunscreen after use, as BHAs make your skin more sensitive to the sun’s rays. Apply sunscreen or a moisturiser containing SPF like our Laser X3 SPF15 Day Cream
at the end of your routine and before sun exposure.
