PRODUCT OVERVIEW: Salicylic acid has become to be known as the acne killer. With its small molecular size and potent exfoliating abilities, any acne fighting regimen would be lost without it.
One of the greatest areas of concern for the acne patient are the dead skin cells that do not slough properly and remain within the hair follicles to accumulate and eventual clog; thus creating the perfect environment for acne proliferation. Due to its small molecular size, salicylic acid will travel deep into the pores of the skin and help slough those dead skin cells and allow the pores to function properly.
On dry sensitive skin types, the use of AHA 8 Astringent and Salicylic Cleanser on alternating schedules can be a perfect acne fighting program. BHA / AHA Clarifying Astringent is an excellent all in one product that also can be used for clients who are experiences acne skin conditions but care must be taken since this product can be overly drying. See product documentation for more information.
Combination / Oily Skin / Acne: With dry face and hands, place a quarter size amount into the palm of your hands and lightly lather. Gently apply both hands to face and with a gentle circular motion, cleanse face. Rinse with cool water and allow to air dry before next product treatment.
