Shine is nice....but not on our faces! And, dealing with a shiny face isn't as simple as piling on 'matte' makeup or carrying around a purse full of 'blotting papers.'

Skin type changes over time---affected by environment, seasons, climate, and emotions.  Our age also has an impact on our skin type. Using the wrong product can also lead to dry skin, breakouts, or other unwanted side effects.

Knowing what causes our oily skin will also lead you to the use of the correct treatment and supplemental products. That is why talking with a skin expert can save you time and money.
Antioxidant Cleansing Pads (with Vitamin C)
Oily Skin

The cleansing pads have been formulated with a patented Polymer Matrix Technology System which provide an enhanced means of delivering stabilized L-ascorbic acid into the skin. Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize the damaging effectsof free radicals - the unstable radicals that are a result of air pollution, smoking, stress, and sunlight. Studies suggest that Vitamin C has the potential to stimulate the growth of collagen, which is important in maintaining healthy skin elasticity and texture.

These unique cleansing pads gently cleanse and prepare the skin. The pads remove skin oils and debris while leaving behind a rich blend of skin enhancing antioxidants and citrus extracts. Dr. Mash's patients love the the fragrance as well as the 'spring fresh' feeling of their skin after cleansing.

Glycolic Facial Cleanser
Oily Skin
Facial Ceanser with 10% Glycolic Acid - Specially formulated for oily skin.

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..
