The Best Acne Treatment UK

Hailed as the best acne treatment and a vital part of your daily skincare routine - the high concentration of Salicylic acid in this product is the key ingredient which allows it to treat acne and achieve clear skin. The salicylic acid works by separating the bonds which hold on to dead skin cells enabling a deep exfoliation of the skin and unclogging the facial pores. The healthier skin is brought to the surface and increased skin cell turnover causes a decrease in bacteria build-up which lead to acne.
