I used to hear the words salicylic acid from my mom back then. She says it cures acne and prevents from having “an-an”.
I sure had pimples during my teen years but glad I didn’t have to use salicylic acid like what my mom used to say. Until now, I am proud to say I didn’t use any astringent or whatsoever. Facial cleanser and moisturizers of course, especially now that I am in my mid 30s. Awww! That hurts haha!
