Has Anyone Cured Their Acne With Salicylid Acid Products Only?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious if anyone has. I used to use neutrogena acne defense lotion which has 2 percent SA and it worked for my acne but my acne was mild to moderate. However, it doesn't seem to work on my cystic acne. Has anyone here cured their acne with SA products only?

SA is actually not a cure.

SA is preventive to some extent, provided other aspects are taken care of.

it keeps the pore clean & unclogged and also takes care of excess oil/ dirt.

removes the dead upper layer.

but it does have anti-bacterial properties so it can't exactly attack existing active acne.

except for some say it helps dry the thing off.
