Salicylic acid makes me hypopigmented

Recommended Posts

I've almost 100% confirmed by now that SA products make me light/hypopigmented on certain parts of my face if I used them daily. This has happened to me on a number of occasions and I am almost positive it's due to regular SA use (the pads). Do weird things happen to anyone else due to SA? I've had it burn small parts of my skin too, and it takes weeks to get better. I'm gonna chill on the SA...I find it effective for breakouts and keeping pores clear, but I don't know about these side effects.

I tried downgrading to 1% pads rather than 2% but I still got the light areas. I'm kinda pissed but...it is rubbing acid on your face after all
