  1. helloo i have black heads and closed comedones and barely any redness but i see so many people say salicylic acid will cause purging and that it’s an overrated ingredient i used it once 3 years ago (i’m 19) and it helped a lot with my forehead bumps but now my skin is a bit more sensitive so i’m scared since anti inflammatory acne isn’t something i struggle with to use azelaic acid it would be really helpful if u could give an opinion

    1. Hey there! Based on what you’re saying, I don’t think salicylic acid and azelaic acid is the best combination for you since you have a bit more sensitive skin now. As you’ve seen some results while using salicylic acid in the past, it might be a good idea to try it again but in combination with a product that contains hyaluronic acid. To avoid a strong reaction (such as purging) of the salicylic acid, I would suggest trying a product that contains a low concentration. A product that I personally really love is the CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser with Salicylic Acid. It’s a very gentle product but still fights black heads and closed comedones! It even contains hyaluronic acid and it is fragrance-free so it won’t cause any sensitivity. Hope this helps! 🙂
