Healthy skin starts with a commitment to a regular skin care regimen, using high quality products every day. While I often think of the face first when it comes to caring for the skin, the skin on the body also needs attention.
Many skin care products contain salicylic acid. Some are available over-the-counter and others require a doctor’s prescription. Studies have shown that salicylic acid is less irritating than skin care products containing alpha-hydroxy acids but has similar results in improving skin texture and color.
