Salicylic acid v hyaluronic acid
… and why you should be using them together
Salicylic acid and hyaluronic acid are NOT the same thing. But their complementary qualities mean they could be your new favorite skincare duo. Here’s why.
WHAT IS SALICYLIC ACID?
It’s a naturally derived, oil-soluble beta hydroxy acid – which means it can penetrate the skin’s oily surface, reaching the sebum and dead skin cells that are trapped deep in the pores. It’s an excellent exfoliator, with both anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial qualities, making it great for those with blemishes and the signs of aging.
WHAT IS HYALURONIC ACID?
An ingredient produced naturally by the body, it can hold many times its weight in water, making it your go-to ingredient for hydration and minimizing fine lines. It’s hypoallergenic, making it suitable for all skin types, and is self-regulating, meaning the skin will only ever use the hydration it needs – no more.
WHY THEY MAKE THE IDEAL TAG-TEAM
The exfoliating qualities of salicylic acid perfectly prep the skin for hyaluronic acid to maximize its hydrating powers. Hyaluronic acid returns the favor by soothing any potential irritation caused by exfoliation.
Let’s make the magic happen.
