Does Salicylic Acid Clear Spots?

Posted by Steve Reeve on

Never should it be underestimated the psychological effects that spots, blackheads, pimples or even acne, can have. Physical conditions that then cause psychological and emotional ones.

It’s no wonder then that people with imperfect skin will seek out over the counter, non-harmful ways to treat their skin. Going into work with an unsightly whitehead, or to an interview, or worse yet a date (would you even go?) is something we all fear/dread which leads to anxiety and low self-esteem.

One popular treatment for spots is salicylic acid. But does it work?

Because of its structure, salicylic acid is able to penetrate the skins pores.

When put on the skin at safe levels, salicylic acid prevents the shedding of cells in an abnormal way (as happens when you get spots).

It unclogs pores by dissolving debris to clear and prevent cysts and blackheads. This exfoliating effect gives your skin a deep clean.

It can even penetrate and work on oily skin due to its structure as mentioned above. It has a drying effect on the skin, which most spots sufferers see as a positive. But if you have really dry skin already then it may not be the best choice for you.

The effects stop when you stop using it so consistent use is key.                    

Is it dangerous to use too much salicylic acid?

Well it would be if used at high concentrations. That’s why it is regulated by the EU.

Optimum-FX V55 Salicylic Acid Skin Cream contains 1% salicylic acid.

Optimum-FX V55 MAX Salicylic Acid Skin Cream contains 2% salicylic acid which is the maximum allowed concentration in the EU for a leave on cream.

These creams are specially formulated to treat spots, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, blemishes and problem skin. They are also suitable and safe to those prone to acne.
