Salicylic acid is a popular skin care product that is sometimes marketed as BHA or Beta Hydroxy Acid. Salicylic acid is found in nature and is a component of aspirin or acetylsalicylic acid. It is found in acne treatments, where it acts as an anti-inflammatory and dries up pimples. As a peel, it penetrates deeper than Alpha Hydroxy Acids, but is far more gentle and effective even on oily skin.

Salicylic Acid is also an excellent exfoliant and helps to destroy the glue holding the dead skin together but it has the added advantage of also helping control acne and oil production. In fact salicylic acid is a common ingredient in over the counter acne and oil control medication.

Now getting hold of salicylic acid in the kitchen might not seem easy to you, but you can easily find it in your medicine cabinet in the form of Aspirin (or Disprin in India).
