Would Salicylic Acid In Foundations Be Safe To Use While On The Acne.org Regimen?

Recommended Posts

Hi

My daughter has been using that concealer for about a year now (while on the regimen) and she loves it! I think that the amount of salicylic acid in it is so low that it does not cause irritation (1% I believe), You should be fine with it unless your skin is super dry or already irritated from the benzoyl peroxide. Just my opinion.

Good luck.

Have you tried salicylic acid before?

I tried that foundation from almay ,but it made my face itch.

I also tried a salicylic acid pressed powder from proactiv and had the same reaction.

I guess it would probably depend on each person,according to how sensitive or reactive the skin is .

I used a salicylic acid toner from Neutrogena for awhile without a problem and now I react to it ,the toner still does the job ,but if I use it now ,my skin gets red and itchy.

I guess sometimes we have to treat our skin depending on how the skin feels that day ,which is kind of a guessing game,as in my case. Or maybe I overdid it with the use of various chemical exfoliators at the same time.

Before, I used facial washes with 2% salicylic acid in them and i found that they didn't really do anything. I just hope it doesn't make my skin dry out while on the regimen!

Facial washes can't do much, because salicylic acid needs to stay in the skin to work , and washes don't stay long.

I used to use the Neutrogena deep clean cream cleanser and I used to use it in the shower after cleansing my face with a peroxide wash from Neutrogena .The salicylic cleanser I would leave it on my face for a couple of minutes and felt that it was the only way it would work .

Just remember that you have to be very careful with exfoliation , not too much , overdoing can lead to thinning and damage to the skin that would take awhile to recover.I talk from experience , sometimes dry skin is the beginning sign, from either under exfoliation or over exfoliation.
