Kill acne with kindness.
Though it's technically an "acid," salicylic acid won't hurt when formulated at concentrations that are safe to promote healthy skin. Salicylic acid also has natural soothing properties that can calm down a blemish, which is critical for acne-prone skin. More isn't necessarily better. Twice a day is just the right amount.
