How do I use the Salicylic Wash?
Wet affected area, apply using a circular motion, and rinse well. Because drying of the skin can occur, it is recommended to start with one application per day, then increase to two or three times per day if needed or as directed by a physician. If extreme dryness occurs reduce use to once a day or every other day. May increase sun sensitivity so be sure to use sunscreen!
What should I do if dryness occurs?
You can decrease the number of times per day you use salicylic wash based on dryness. If extreme dryness occurs reduce application to once a day or every other day. Feel free to use an oil free moisturizer such as Green Tea Moisturizer, or HA serum with peptides to combat dryness.
Are there any precautions I should be aware of?
Salicylic Wash may increase sun sensitivity, so be sure to use sunscreen!
