Salicylic and glycolic acid

Recommended Posts

Well i hav an astringent called vichy normaderm adn it contains both salicylic and glycolic acids i dont really use it anymore i use som kinda which hazel and aloe vera toner instead so it was on my desk and it fell down. It turns out tat it wasnt closed properly and kinda leaked a lil i dont think it was knocked down very long considerinh it was still very moist anyway the desk is wooden and has varnish on it. Wen i started to wipe off the astringent it turns out that the varnish was coming off too :| . To me tat jus raises the question of wtf we put on our faces cuz of this satan spawn called acne....

Um, the trick is to use things in moderation and you'll be fine. Too much of anything is usually bad, so it's no surprise that a pool of acid sitting on something will slowly over time eat away at the material. Think of things we put INTO our bodies, like Coca Cola for example. Moderation, moderation.

By the way the thing about coke isnt real...http://www.breakthechain.org/awards/0307.html lol so bad example ive left coke on a table already it didnt peel off the varnish much less eat at the actual table. And the astringent wasnt there long maybe a couple hrs max so yeah....I dont know wats wrong wiht ppl sayin its an acid wat do u expect. THe water from ur tap isnt a neutral pH 7 u know but u dont c it peeling off varnish off the freakin table. should think a lil before just sayin acid wat do u expect. somthing wiht a supposely low concnetration of acid lik 2% or so shouldnt be that strong i think.
