Although sal­i­cylic acid—an in­gre­di­ent in many top­i­cal acne treat­ments—is of­ten syn­thetic and can thus ir­ri­tate skin, pure sal­i­cylic acid de­rived from white wil­low can ac­tu­ally be ben­e­fi­cial, ex­plains Suki Kramer, the founder of suki skin­care. “Nat­u­ral sal­i­cylic acid is ac­tu­ally a won­der­ful anti-in­flam­ma­tory, and it bal­ances the over­all chem­istry to the skin so as not to clog and over­pro­duce or dry out the skin.” See more of Suki's skin­care tips on page 44.
