The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution



The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution is a valuable addition to your skincare routine for its exfoliating and blemish-clearing properties. Here’s how to use it effectively, along with some helpful tips and safety guidelines:

How to Use

  1. Start with clean and dry skin. Remove makeup and other items.
  2. Dispense a small amount of the Salicylic Acid 2% Solution, usually just a few drops, onto your fingertips.
  3. Apply the serum to your face, avoiding the eye and lip areas. You may massage it into your skin with your fingertips. Ensure equal coverage.
  4. Allow the serum to fully absorb into your skin. This may take a minute or two.
  5. Follow up with your favorite moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and balanced.

Tips for Using

  • Start salicylic acid serum weekly if you’re new. As your skin adjusts, add to two or three times a week.
  • For targeted blemish control, you can apply a small amount of the serum directly to the affected area as a spot treatment. Use overnight and rinse in the morning.
  • Salicylic acid increases light sensitivity. Ensure you apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen during the day to protect your skin.

Safety Guidelines

  • Do not use the Ordinary Salicylic Acid Solution on areas of your skin that are broken or irritated.
  • Avoid getting the serum in your eyes, as it may cause irritation.
  • If you experience any irritation, discontinue use. Some redness or tingling may occur, especially if you’re new to salicylic acid, but severe irritation should be taken seriously.
