The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution Pore Clearing Serum is a valuable product for those seeking to clear up acne, reduce the appearance of pores, and improve skin texture. Here’s how to use it effectively:
- Beta hydroxy acid (BHA), 2% salicylic acid, penetrates deep into pores to dissolve dead skin cells and sebum and exfoliate the skin.
- Compatible with all skin types, even sensitive ones.
- Cleanse and tone your face.
- Try a few drops of The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution Pore Clearing Serum on your fingertips.
- Gently apply the serum to your face and neck. Focus on areas where you have concerns, such as acne-prone areas or where you want to minimize the appearance of pores.
- Before using any skincare products, let the serum dry.
- Initial use of the serum daily will determine skin response. If you develop redness or severe dryness, reduce usage. Increase the frequency progressively if your skin tolerates it.
- Mix the Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution Pore Clearing Serum with moisturizers, sunscreens, and acne treatments.
- It’s crucial to apply sunscreen every day, especially if you are using this serum. Salicylic acid increases UV sensitivity. Therefore, use sunscreen.
- To minimize the drying effects of salicylic acid, be sure to moisturize your skin well after using the serum.
- Starting with 1% salicylic acid before 2% may be best for sensitive skin.
- Avoid using salicylic acid on broken or irritated skin, as it may exacerbate the issue.
