Ingredients to Look For

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is an ingredient found in many acne preparations because it helps control oil and prevent pimples. However, if your skin is oily you should also look for salicylic acid in basic skin-care products such as cleansers, moisturizers and makeup. Always wash your face with a salicylic cleanser before applying moisturizer so that your skin is clean and ready to absorb any lotions or makeup you may apply.

Glycolic Acid



Glycolic acid is often found in chemical peels because it scrubs away dead skin on the surface so that your complexion looks renewed. Glycolic acid is taken from sugar cane and is also highly beneficial for oily skin types. Exfoliating allows fresh, new skin to be displayed. You can find glycolic acid in a variety of skin-care products, such as skin lighteners that will help you on your way to brighter, healthier skin.
