Face Cleansers Salicylic Acid

Every time that you wash your face, you remove dirt and impurities that can compromise the health of your skin. This makes cleansing an important part of a daily regimen. If you choose the right cleanser, the first step in your daily skin care routine can also help you to address skin imperfections to minimize their appearance. At Walgreens, we can help you find the perfect multitasking cleanser for addressing many dermatological concerns with a variety of salicylic acid face cleansers.

What Is Salicylic Acid?

Salicylic acid is an ingredient that is commonly used in many types of skin care products. The ingredient can be of natural or man-made origin. Natural salicylic acid comes from the bark of the white willow tree. Man-made salicylic acid is manufactured in factories and functions identically to the natural substance. Salicylic acid is a type of beta hydroxy acid. When applied to the skin, salicylic acid helps to exfoliate the complexion and refine the pores.

Why Use Salicylic Acid?

Cleansing with a product that contains salicylic acid allows you to purify your skin with cleansing agents while removing blockages from your pores and exfoliating your skin. The actions of salicylic acid face cleansers can be beneficial for addressing many skin care concerns. If you suffer from enlarged pores, acne blemishes or blackheads, a salicylic acid cleanser can help to address the skin congestion that causes these problems and remove dead skin before it can further block the pores. Salicylic acid is also frequently recommended for improving the symptoms of psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis. If you have a skin condition, you can consult your doctor to find out if a salicylic acid face cleanser is likely to help you manage your symptoms.

Comparing Cleanser Options

Salicylic acid face cleansers come in the form of pre-moistened wipes, gels, lotions and bars. You can choose the cleanser form that will be the easiest and most convenient for you to use as a part of your daily regimen. The concentration of salicylic acid in cleansers can vary from product to product and will be listed as a percentage. The higher the percentage is, the more concentrated and powerful the cleanser is. Read the package label of the skin care product you are using very carefully. Salicylic acid may irritate the skin. When using a cleansing product containing salicylic acid for the first time, apply a small amount to one or two small areas you want to treat for three days. If no discomfort occurs, use the product as directed on the package.
