It contains glycolic acid with a free acid value 4.7%. I like it used with a Buf Puf Facial Sponge to
cleanse the facial skin before applying other glycolic acid products.
Glytone Facial Cream #2, 1.70 oz.:
An extremely hydrating
glycolic acid cream. It's perfect wrinkle cream for starting glycolic
acid skin care for dry skin types. Please note, use of products with
glycolic acid can irritate the skin. If irritation develops discontinue
use and consult a physician.
Buf Puf Facial Sponge:
Physically exfoliates facial skin when
used with soap to brighten the skin texture. Use your Buf Puf in the
morning and enjoy your bright luminous skin all day long. The hygienic
nylon sponge may be used many times before needing to be replaced. Allow
to dry between uses.
Kit Instructions: Glycolic Acid Skin Care Kit for Dry Skin
Begin by using these products once a day. As your skin adjusts to the
glycolic acid, you can work up to using the products twice a day.
- Squirt a small amount of the Glytone Mild Gel Wash on the Buf Puf
Facial Sponge. Cleanse your face by gently massaging your skin with the
sponge for several seconds. Do not use firm pressure. Be careful to avoid
contact with the eyes. Rinse your skin thoroughly with warm water.
- Apply your glycolic acid lotion or cream to your entire facial skin. Be
careful not to apply the cream near the eyes. Avoid any abraded or
- You may apply sunscreen and make up on top of your glycolic acid
products during the daytime.
Tips For Success: Glycolic Acid Skin Care Kit for Dry Skin
- Always start with the lowest concentration products and work up.
- When low concentration products are irritating, dilute them in half
with a non glycolic acid product and gradually work towards full
- Mix equal portions of the glycolic acid facial cream and a similar
non-glycolic acid product in your palm before applying them to the skin.
(For example the Glycolic Acid Anti-Aging Face Cream 15% glycolic acid cream with
the Daily Moisturizing Face Cream for Oily to Normal Skin non glycolic acid cream.)
- In a week or so, add less of the non glycolic acid facial cream as you
mix the two products in your palm.
- Slowly continue this process until you can tolerate the full strength
glycolic acid facial cream.
- If your skin becomes irritated, take a break from your glycolic acid
treatment for a few days, or until the skin returns to normal, before
- Use less glycolic acid in areas of your skin that are more sensitive.
This means diluting the glycolic product as above, using a lower
concentration product or avoiding glycolic acid on the area all together.
Examples of sensitive skin areas include the facial skin around the nose
and along the nasal crease.
- Do not get glycolic acid on the lips. OF COURSE, DO NOT EAT GLYCOLIC
ACID SKIN CARE PRODUCTS.
- The eyelid folds are sensitive and you should not apply glycolic acid
products to them. Of course, DO NOT GET GLYCOLIC ACID IN YOUR EYES. This
means do not apply it so close to the eyes that it melts in to the eyes as
the product warms to skin temperature.
- If your skin continues to sting when you apply your glycolic acid
lotion or cream after washing with the buf puf, then apply your cream
or lotion at night and wash with the Glytone Gel Wash and Buf Puf in
the morning and apply a bland moisturizer after.
- If your skin develops irritation, an injury or a rash, stop your
glycolic acid therapy until the skin has healed plus at least 2 weeks.
Glycolic acid will further irritate irritated skin, preventing healing.
This includes skin irritated from wind or sun, irritating skin medicines
such as acne medicines or tretenoin (Retin A and Renova) or procedures
such as waxing, electrolysis, etc.
- Irritated skin can develop permanent darkening in response to sunlight.
Do not expose irritated skin to the sun until the skin has returned to
Dr. Cynthia Bailey Wants You To Know: Glycolic Acid Skin Care Kit for Dry Skin
Strong glycolic acid skin care products provide powerful non prescription
anti aging treatment to reduce wrinkles while brightening the skin and
lightening age spots. The stronger the free acid value of the glycolic
acid the more effective it is. However, strong glycolic acid products
are irritating to everyone, and especially to people with sensitive skin.
A person should always slowly increase to the highest concentration that
they can tolerate. For this reason, I have chosen progressive
concentrations of the strongest glycolic acid products. Please note,
glycolic acid and other AHA's are probably too harsh for most people
with rosacea or extremely sensitive skin. Use of products with glycolic
acid can irritate the skin. If irritation develops discontinue use and
consult a physician.
