Salicylic Acid is part of the BHA (Beta-Hydroxi Acid) family and is a chemical exfoliant, meaning it exfoliates the top part of your skin layer. Its benefits include:
*clearing of clogged pores
*reduces sebum (the stuff that makes your skin oily) production
*Breaks down pimples and blackheads
Niacinamide evens out skin tone, brightens pigmentation and is great for anti-ageing. Whereas the Ginko extract is super soothing and hydrating.
How to use
Can be used at AM or PM (once is enough, and daily use not necessary)
After washing your face, apply a few pumps onto your cotton pad and gently rub over your skin. Follow with normal skincare routine.
Caution: this is a very strong ingredient, and your skin might take some time getting used to. Patch test highly recommended. For first time users, don’t use it daily, but rather every third day, then slowly increase to every other day.
