How to use:
Using your finger tips, smooth a small amount onto clean skin, avoiding direct contact with the eyes, eyelids, and lower lash line. Follow with sunscreen during the day. At night you can follow with your favourite serum or moisturiser.
If you haven't used a product containing Salicylic Acid before, you might like to build up usage gradually to minimise the risk of irritation. Start by using the product every other night, increasing to every day after a few weeks, as your skin's tolerance grows. If your skin needs it, you could even use Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel twice a day.
