Glycolic 10% Facial Cleanser

Glycolic 10% Facial Cleanser

This cleanser, specially formulated for oily skin, contains 10% ultra-pure glycolic acid. It also contains Green Tea Extract and Aloe Vera Gel. Dr. Mash recommends the following directions for use: Wet affected area, apply, and rinse well. Because Drying of the skin can occur, it is recommended to start with one application per day, then increase to two or three times per day if needed or as directed by a physician. If extreme dryness occurs reduce application to once a day or every other day.

Glycolic acid has become a forerunner in the fight against wrinkles, and has been going strong since its introduction to the skin care market more than ten years ago. And with good reason. This powerful acid, derived from sugar cane, loosens up the glue that holds dead skin cells together. The effect is to exfoliate those cells, leaving smoother, younger skin in its stead. The depth of wrinkles is diminished, noticeably, and darkly pigmented areas become lightened. There is some evidence that this alpha hydroxy acid also functions as an antioxidant, meaning it protects skin from future aging.

Another positive feature of glycolic acid is that by removing dead skin cells, it helps to unblock pores. For those who have oily skin, this usually translates into fewer breakouts, a welcomed bonus.

The tricky thing about glycolics is that it is hard to tell how strong a formula is. Some companies aren't straight about the percentages, and tiny amounts of glycolic won't give you results you can see..
