Paula’s Choice 10 % Azelaic Acid Booster Side Effects
- Azelaic and Salicylic Acid cleansing may take time to suit your skin.
- It can be drying for dry skin types.
- While it can be used for sensitive skin, introduce it only after calming your skin.
How to use it?
We recommend introducing this agent gradually if you are naïve to potent ingredients. Start by applying for an hour on the dark spots/pimples. Gradually build up the time from 1 to 3 hours and then, overnight every 3-7 days depending on the tolerability. Azelaic acid does not react with the sun, therefore, can be used in the morning.
