The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution Benefits

Effective exfoliator for the skin: Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) that is a key ingredient when it comes to the treatment of oily skin. It works wonders as an exfoliator both at the surface till deep down to the pores, thereby preventing acne and blackheads. Its anti-inflammatory action is also effective against already existing acne.
Acts as a soothing agent with antimicrobial properties: Hamamelis Virginiana leaf water is a dilute distillate that helps in avoiding skin irritation and discomfort providing a relaxing effect to the skin.

Side effects:

Salicylic acid can make your skin dry over a period of time. Skip this serum if your skin already feels dry. Apply The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution can trigger a rash and visible exfoliation. It can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. Make sure you wear sunscreen on top of salicylic acid.
 

How to use it?

Salicylic acid does not react with the sun, however, The ordinary website recommends using this product at night. In oily and non-sensitive skin, you can apply it on full-face except near your eyes. If your skin is slightly dry or sensitive, then go for spot application on pimples or blackheads. Avoid using salicylic acid-based face wash because both may cause over-dryness.

Benefits

Cetaphil pro- oil absorbing moisturizer SPF 30 has the following benefits:
  • Protect your skin from both UVA and UVB with help of 3 chemical-based UV filters- Avobenzone, Octisalate and Octocrylene. SPF of 30 is enough for daily exposure like travelling to the workplace. However, if you are planning for a beach holiday or outdoor sport, then you should apply a thick layer of Cetaphil pro moisturiser every 2-3 hours. Else, you can use sunscreen with SF 50 +.
  • Cetaphil pro might help in reducing redness caused by acne with Allantoin and Panthenol.
  • Zinc Gluconate in Cetaphil pro reduces acne-causing bacteria and lowers oil production.
  • Hydroxypalmitoyl Sphinganine is a ceramide that repairs the skin barrier and adds to NMF (Natural moisturising factor) of your skin.

Side effects

Cetaphil Pro moisturiser does have any side effects. It might not suit super sensitive skin.

How to use?

Cetaphil Pro moisturiser is both sunscreen and moisturiser.  You should put salicylic acid, Niacinamide or azelaic acid in the morning followed by Cetaphil pro moisturiser as discussed in this article for Acne skin care Routine

Benefits

Biotique Bio Winter Green Spot Correcting Anti-Acne Cream contains the following anti-acne ingredients:
  • Berberis aristata is a herb that is called tree turmeric and has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that might help in reducing red pimples.
  • Euphorbia thymifolia might be useful in the treatment of pimples owing to its inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
  • Gultheria fragrantissima is a wintergreen herb that has antiseptic benefits and might help by removing the bacteria.
  • Neem has antibacterial and anti-acne benefits that might help in reducing acne breakouts in acne prone skin. However, if neem might irritate sensitive skin, a patch test is recommended before use.
This cream has rare anti-acne herbs that can be used as a second line of treatment when tea-tree oil and salicylic-based acne products are not working.

Cons

  • herbs might irritate sensitive skin
  • the ingredient list is not complete.
  • jar parking that requires digging your finger into the jar before application. Make sure your finger is clean and dry before doing so, to avoid chances of infections.

For which skin type?

 I cannot make a definite recommendation for skin types because the full composition of the cream base is not mentioned. This cream base might be occlusive for acne-prone skin. Thus, this anti-acne cream should be used as a spot treatment only.

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Benefits

Reduces acne: Azelaic acid ( a form of carboxylic acid) works wonders for acne or rosacea-prone skin owing to its anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory properties. It kills the acne-causing bacteria thereby decreasing breakouts and healing the existing blemishes at a faster rate. Azelaic acid is routinely prescribed by dermatologists in concentrations varying from 10 to 20% for acne and rosacea. Repairs skin: Tocopherol also known as vitamin E provides protection from collagen damaging free radicals. Makes your skin smoother and supple: The presence of emollients like Isodecyl Neopentanoat and Dimethicone gives a glossy, plump look to your skin by filling in fine lines and wrinkles.

The Ordinary Azelaic Acid Side Effect

It might cause tingling and burning skin sensations in sensitive skin. Secondly, it has a silicone base that can be occlusive for oily skin. Dry skin type may not feel hydrated after using it because dimethicone sits on the top of the skin without hydrating it.

How to use it?

We recommend introducing this agent gradually if you are naïve to potent ingredients. Start by applying for an hour on the dark spots/pimples. Gradually build up the time from 1 to 3 hours and then, overnight every 3-7 days depending on the tolerability. Azelaic acid does not react with the sun, therefore, can be used in the morning.  

Benefits:

Effective skin exfoliant: Salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid), Glycolic and Lactic acid (Alpha hydroxy acid) gently remove the dead skin cells both at the surface and deeper pores level. You notice smoother skin without a greasy or bumpy feel. Reduces open pores and blackheads: Salicylic acid helps in treating blackheads and open pores. While Niacinamide and Phytosphingosine reduce red pimples owing to its antibacterial properties. Reduce post-acne marks: The potent combination of Niacinamide, glycolic acid and lactic work in unison to reduce and prevent dark spots along with skin brightening. Strengthens skin's natural barrier: Ceramide AP, NP and EOP toughen the skin’s natural barrier. It protects from environmental damage and trans-epidermal water loss. Thereby retaining skin’s natural moisture and preventing dry, scaly skin. Soothes inflamed skin: Salicylic acid and niacinamide calm the skin due to their anti-inflammatory properties. Hydrates skin Glycerin, Caprylyl glycol and Sodium hyaluronate helps in skin conditioning as they have high water holding capacity.

Side effects

Do not use it if your skin is already dry and sensitive because it will get further dry and irritated. Skip this gel for a day or two if you notice your skin is red, irritated or dry. Discontinue it 2 days prior to any harsh procedure of face eg. Bleach,  waxing, peel
