Are Salicylic Acid Peels a Wise Choice For Your Skin?

A salicylic acid peel is one of the many antiaging treatments on the market, but it might not be the best option for you.

There are countless products and procedures promising the fountain of youth, claiming to virtually turn back the hands of time, giving you a fresh, youthful appearance in a short period of time.

Yet the benefits of these chemicals and similar ingredients may be outweighed by the potential nagging side effects that might make it a poor choice.

What are salicylic acid peels?

Also known as beta-hydroxy acid, some research shows that an application may help prematurely aged skin by exfoliating it as well as improving the color and texture.

The benefits may also include treating acne as it is able to penetrate oil-filled follicles.

The problem is chemical peels have not been shown to be very beneficial for exfoliating skin or reducing wrinkles...rather the acid only shows significant promise in treating acne irritation.

Also, most products containing these ingredients are way overpriced, as beta hydroxy acids are very simple acids and can be produced at a very low're really paying for marketing and packaging.

In high concentrations, salicylic acid can actually cause skin irritation, so you must be careful if you choose a chemical peel or over the counter product with this ingredient.

There are also other ingredients in most SA products so you need to read the labels carefully before choosing a product. That is why we believe a safe, natural alternative might be a better choice for that can offer the benefits without the potential side effects.
