Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength
This serious skin care kit is a powerful acne treatment to cure acne and prevent acne scars. It pushes the envelope of irritancy to maximize acne treatment with 2% salicylic acid and 10% benzoyl peroxide (the maximal level available for these powerful acne medicines), plus a full 10% glycolic acid to remove blackheads.
Most other acne treatment systems have lower concentrations of these most effective acne medicines, or they don't include all three. Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength includes high concentrations of all three of these medicines making it one of the best acne products for tough acne.
This is among the best acne treatments if you've tried other weaker acne products and still have pimples...use it to prevent and treat acne on your face and neck at any age.
Dr. Cynthia Bailey Wants You To Know:
There are many acne treatment products on the market making it difficult to choose. It helps to understand how acne medicines work; in general, they either kill the acne causing germs or unclog pores. Acne cleansers remove oil and dirt and may leave a layer of medication that stays on after washing. Astringents and medicated pads usually remove additional oil and leave behind medicine. Lotions, creams and solutions leave medicine on the skin.
The best acne products and acne medicines made today are a little irritating to most people's skin which is why I have a stronger kit for tolerant/normal skin (Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength) and a milder kit for sensitive skin (Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit). The best acne medications include glycolic acid and salicylic acid (which unclog pores), and benzoyl peroxide (which unclogs pores and kills acne causing germs). Higher concentrations of these acne medicines work better to treat pimples and blackheads and to prevent acne scars and my kits have the maximum strength of acne treatment medicines to clear acne fast. In treating thousands of acne patients I've found that Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength work better than most prescription acne medicines and all other over-the-counter treatments!
Please note, use of products with glycolic acid, salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide can irritate the skin. If irritation develops discontinue product use and consult a physician. Also, benzoyl peroxide can fade the color in fabric upon contact.
Additionally, the benzoyl peroxide medicine in the Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cream 10%, Extra Strength can and will bleach fabric! Do not apply it under colored clothing and do not wipe it on colored towels. It is also best to sleep with a white pillow case since it will bleach colored cases as well.

Commonly Asked Questions:
Can I use the Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength with my other skin care products?
Usually you can. You should always use OIL FREE products on acne prone skin. Oil free moisturizers, sunscreens and makeup may be applied after the Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cream 10%, Extra Strength. Allow the Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cream 10%, Extra Strength to dry then apply your products.
Can I use the Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength with topical medicines my doctor has prescribed for my acne?
Usually yes. Ask your prescribing doctor.
What do I do if my skin becomes dry or irritated while I am using the Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength?
Give your skin a short break. Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength is strong. If your skin begins to feel dry, stop using the Kit and just wash with a mild soap for a few days. When your skin feels normal again begin using the kit just once a day for several weeks and then increase back to twice a day. If you still develop dry skin, you may be sensitive to one of the ingredients. See DIRECTIONS for trouble shooting advice.
Can I use the Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength if I become pregnant?
No. The ingredients have not been tested on pregnant women and no one will ever be bold enough to test things on pregnant women. The good news is that acne often clears up when a woman is pregnant.
Can I use a wash cloth or buf puf with the cleanser?
Yes. I particularly like buf pufs since they help remove loose blackheads from clogged pores. Always make sure anything you wash your skin with is clean and dries between uses since they can harbor germs.
Product Details - This Ultimate Acne Solutions Skin Care Kit, Extra Strength includes:
Foaming Acne Treatment Cleanser (10% Glycolic acid and 2% Salicylic acid foaming cleanser)
This extremely strong 10% Glycolic Acid/2% Salicylic Acid foaming cleanser is the strongest acne cleanser I recommend. Regular use removes oil and blackheads. It's ideal for tolerant skin that can handle strong acne medicines. Please note, glycolic acid and salicylic acid can be irritating to the skin. If irritation develops, discontinue use and contact a physician.
Salicylic and Glycolic Acid Acne Treatment Pads, Extra Strength (medicated pads with 10% Glycolic Acid and 2% Salicylic Acid)
Tolerant skin benefits from a full 10% glycolic acid working in combination with salicylic acid to really loosen blackheads. These medicated pads unclog pores, lifting oil and debris to treat blackheads and prevent pimples and acne scars.
Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Treatment Cream 10%, Extra Strength (alcohol and oil free 10% benzoyl peroxide cream)
The highest concentration of benzoyl peroxide available over the counter. Benzoyl peroxide, in my opinion is the most effective topical acne product for killing the acne-causing bacteria p. acnes because the germ has become resistant to prescription topical antibiotics. It also unclogs pores to treat blackheads.
