Hi. Greetings . that's y we say half knowledge is dangerous . low concentrations of salicylic acid used for face doesn't cause significant thickening to cause damage. Use a good sunscreen and moisturiser . that would take care. - gravesite face guard sunscreen/ cetaphil moisturiser. Hope this helps.
