Despite the age-old belief that sufferers of recurring acne should avoid salicylic acid peels due to the chemical reacting badly with the skin, Aveya reps say it is now possible to use in a harmonious way...   

Consumers are forever seeking to perfect the look of their skin, but so many struggle with acne on a daily basis. Over 90% of the population will at sometime during their lives be affected.

Whilst the issue of acne is not a new one for industry professionals, recent research has revealed fresh insights as to the nature of the disease that can influence how formulators develop treatments going forward.

And this global beauty company is eager to inform consumers that its latest development, a Salicylic Acid Peel gel serum with a concentration of 20%, is highly effective and safe when treating acne as directed.

These peels work by dissolving fats and oils on the skin and when used within the appropriate time, the acid can penetrate pores and break down the oils and sebum that cause acne flare-ups rather than burn or irritate the skin as previously thought. 

According to Aveya, even consumers with especially stubborn acne can benefit from a peel like this.

"In addition to salicylic acid, the other active ingredients work to kill the bacteria responsible for inflamed, red skin, while also preventing lesions and eventual scarring. Acid peels are also an effective treatment for fine lines, wrinkles and other blemishes," ​say reps.

How to avoid a bad reaction..

With this type of peel, Aveya recommends using a fan brush to apply it as thinly as possible and using Vaseline to protect the lips and eyebrows. At the end of the treatment, a baking soda solution and cool water removes any lingering warmth or tingling.

"For those with skin prone to irritation, we recommend applying the product sparingly and only leaving it on for a minute or less,​" they add.

Salicylic acid also exfoliates, degreases the skin, reduces inflammation and improves the appearance of pores. To prevent irritation and refresh the skin after the peel, user can apply a gentle moisturizing cream.
