Salicylic Acid is it safe for...

Recommended Posts

Hey, I have a very dark skin tone... Picture Halle Berry and BAM you got it. I was wondering if Salicylic acid is safe for people of my skin colour? I'd appreciate any advice.

Mariah looks so freakin' HAWT in your avatar!

I'm not sure, but you may want to try it once, wait a day, and see if you have any adverse reaction to it.

Salicylic acid should be safe to use. Unlike benzoyl peroxide, it does not bleach your skin.

If the salicylic doesn't work for you, you might try mandelic acid products. It is an AHA, but less irritating than most. From what I have read it is safe to use on darker skin.

It does for many people, but probably not everyone.
