The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution is here, and the hype is REAL!
If you’re not familiar with Salicylic Acid, don’t worry beauts - we gotchu! Salicylic Acid works to help the skin shed dead cells from the top layer of skin and decreases redness and swelling. As a result, this decreases the amount of breakouts that may form and speeds up the healing of current ones. If you have combination to oily skin, this will sound like music to your ears.
Skincare lovers, as you know, The Ordinary never fail to impress with their skincare products and this new release proves no different. The new formula does all the same great work as their original Salicylic Acid serum, but is more gentle on the skin which is great for anyone who suffers from sensitive skin. Not to worry, this does not replace the old version but is rather a brand new, more mild version. This newbie is called Salicylic Acid 2% Anhydrous Solution and consists of a water-free formulation to exfoliate the skin and help decongest pores. With mascne still hitting us hard, this sounds like the dream, right?! Well wake up beauts, ‘cos this ain’t a dream. Like we said, the hype is REAL!
This pore cleansing serum contains the main ingredient Salicylic Acid, which is a lipophilic beta hydroxy acid (BHA), which is very effective at targeting oil and sebum within the pores, that can lead to congestion and breakouts. It does all of this while also promoting exfoliation - exactly what we all want to hear!
This skincare newbie is slightly different to The Ordinary’s old Salicylic Acid. This new formulation is in a squalane base with the intent of reducing skin irritation or any concerns that can be associated with the use of Salicylic Acid. Meaning it works a treat for clearing out pores and targeting any skin texture issues. This formula is a water-free product formulated to effectively decongest the skin and give a superficial exfoliating effect. This is designed to be used in the morning and evening on clean, dry skin. Apply a small dot to the target area or for general use, apply a small amount over the entire face. It is important to note, do not use this product on sensitive, peeling or broken skin. Also, be careful as this product contains a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Always use sunscreen and limit the sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. When used correctly, this new The Ordinary product can work wonders for your skin, especially for combination to oily, or acne-prone skin.
