How I'm keeping my skin clear these days
I’m all about breakout prevention from head to toe, and I use a salicylic acid cleanser my face and back in the shower every day. I’m not always a skincare snob, and I have absolutely no problem using one from the drugstore. I recently ran out of my CVS generic version, and I was secretly happy because I know I had Clark’s Botanicals’ Skin Clearing Face & Body Wash waiting in the wings.
A MAJOR step up from the cleanser I’ve come accustomed to, this foamy wash delivers the maximum OTC concentration of salicylic acid my skin needs along with nourishing algae extract and a refreshing sensation from head to toe. I love how I can take care of my entire body with one tube (less clutter in the shower!)—and in just a few days I’ve seen improvement in the dry skin on my legs, too. As an aside, I usually shower when I get home from Pilates, and sometimes I’ll have patches of red skin on my legs caused by rubbing if we do a lot of work with our feet in the straps. This irritation goes away after a few hours, but I’ve noticed it’s gone by the time I get out of the shower since I started using this cleanser. Maybe I’m crazy, or maybe it’s the soothing jasmine absolute extract—which my drugstore SA cleanser definitely doesn’t have.
It looks like my and my husband’s skincare snobbery just got a little worse… (Sorry, not sorry.)
