Avoid Salicylic Acid

Salicylic Acid is the same thing as Aspirin.  Aspirin is used as an anit-inflamitory drug (mainly foor fever relief, muscle soreness etc).   

Salicylic Acid is a key ingredient in major skin-care products. It helps maintain skin disorders such as acne, psoriasis, calluses, corns, keratosis pilaris and warts.  Salicylic Acid may help skin but it has many downsides.  

Too much intake or use of Salicylic Acid can lead to hearing loss, salicylate intoxication, increased skin sensitivity, etc.

If you use aspirin as a pain reliever, it would be a good idea to replace with Ibuprofen or Tylenol. Read labels and instructions before intake. 

If you use a skin-care product that contains Salicylic Acid, try replacing it with another ingrediant that helps acne.  It pretty much does the same thing, only it has less noted health warnings.
