Glycolic Acid Skin Care Kit for Dry Skin

When patients ask me how to remove age spots on face and neck skin without prescriptions or office procedures, I always recommend glycolic acid products. The Glytone Mild Gel Wash used with the Facial Buf Puf lifts dirt and oils, exfoliates and polishes without overly drying the skin. The richly hydrating Glytone Facial Cream #2 is perfect for dry skin care.

Dr. Cynthia Bailey Wants You To Know: 

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.

Product Details - This Glycolic Acid Skin Care Kit for Dry Skin includes:

Glytone Mild Gel Wash, 6.7 fl. oz.: An excellent exfoliating foaming cleanser for oily and/or acne prone skin. 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 is a 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.


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.

Step 1: 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.

Step 2: 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 irritated areas.

Step 3: You may apply sunscreen and make up on top of your glycolic acid products during the daytime.

Tips For Success: 

  • 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 strength
  • 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 resuming therapy.
  • 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 normal.
