Salicylic acid isn't only for those with acne-prone skin. Everyone who needs some deep cleaning can benefit from it, too, because this beta-hydroxy acid penetrates deep within your pores to dissolve all the sebum and dead skin that's in its way. In the process, it fights acne, blackheads, and whiteheads as well, and when used regularly, salicylic acid prevents breakouts from happening altogether. Its best feature? It's so easy to incorporate into your routine. In fact, a salicylic acid-infused cleanser is the perfect place to start! Keep scrolling to find one you'll love!
