Salicylic Acid Face Mask : The Dermaco 2% Salicylic Acid Mask Review

When it comes to acne prone skin there are some ingredients that I absolutely love . One of them is salicylic acid. It is an amazing ingredient for acne prone skin. 

Salicylic acid is a potent BHA or beta hydroxy acid which is used widely in skincare, prescribed by many dermatologists for treating mild to moderate forms of acne.

Salicylic acid has keratolytic properties which helps in dissolving dead skin cell layers which helps in unclogging pores. It also helps in reducing inflammation which can reduce the size of existing acne too. 

Acne can be both inflammatory or non-inflammatory.

Salicylic acid serums and masks are a good way to reduce blackheads and whiteheads on the skin which can contribute to future breakouts.

In today’s post I’m reviewing the newly launched 2 percent salicylic acid mask by The DermaCo.

Application-

My experience with the product-

I really do like a good salicylic acid product for my skin as it helps in providing a nice exfoliation to the skin. Normally I go for serums for my skin but this time I decided to give this mask a try. Apart from salicylic acid it also contains kaolin clay and activated charcoal which helps in regulating the oil production in the skin. I used this product twice a week and the tub lasted a month in my cabinet. 

The product should not be used frequently as it can be a bit drying to the skin.

The application is really smooth and it washes off easily giving a fresh look to the skin. After using this mask I follow up with a good moisturiser to nourish my skin so that it does not feel dry or stretchy. I used this product as a quick fix mask treatment on the days when my skin felt super oily, dull, clogged and it did the job really well.
