Glycolic Acid Skin Care Kit for Oily Skin

The Glytone Mild Gel Wash Cleanser used with the Facial Buf Puf lifts oils for total cleansing, exfoliates and preps the skin for the Glytone Exfoliating Lotion.  The Glytone Exfoliating Lotion has a light feel on the skin and layers well with other skin care products like sunscreen, moisturizers or antioxidant anti-aging products.

Use the products once a day and gradually work up to twice a day.

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.

The kit includes:

  • Glytone Mild Gel Wash, 6.7 fl. oz.:

    An excellent foaming exfoliating cleanser for normal to oily skin. It contains glycolic acid with a free acid value 4.7%. I like it used with a Buf Puf Facial Sponge to exfoliate and brighten your skin.

  • Glytone Exfoliating Lotion 2, 2 fl. oz.:

    Glycolic acid in a light wrinkle cream with a lotion base that won't feel heavy on oily skin. The perfect solution for acne treatment and anti aging skin care. 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.


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 irritated areas.
  • You may apply sunscreen and make up on top of your glycolic acid products during the daytime.

 Tips For Success with Glycolic Acid Products

  • Always start with lower strength products and work up in strength as your skin is able to tolerate the glycolic acid.
  • Glycolic acid is by definition an ‘acid’ and can irritate sensitive or injured skin. When or if there is stinging or irritation, you can lower the concentration of the glycolic acid in the product by diluting it in half with a non-glycolic acid product and gradually work towards full strength.
  • Mix equal portions of the glycolic acid product and a similar non-glycolic acid product that you know your skin can tolerate in your palm before applying them to the skin.
  • In a week or so, add less of the non-glycolic acid product as you mix the two products in your palm. Slowly continue this process until you can tolerate the full strength glycolic acid product.
  • If your skin becomes irritated, take a break from your glycolic acid treatment for a few days, or until the skin returns back to normal, before resuming therapy.
  • Avoid or use less glycolic acid in areas of your skin that are more sensitive. This means diluting the glycolic product as above or avoiding glycolic acid on the area all together. Examples of sensitive skin areas on the body include the décolletage area of the chest and the skin folds of the groin or under the breasts. On the face this would include the eyelids and central ‘T-zone’ in people suffering from seborrhea.
  • Do not get glycolic acid on the lips and of course do not eat products intended for external use only.
  • The eyelid folds are sensitive. Of course, do not get glycolic acid in your eyes. This means do not apply it so close to the eyes that it melts into the eyes as the product warms to skin temperature.
  • Sometimes glycolic acid products may sting if you use them after exfoliating with a scrub or rough shower cloth or sponge. If this happens, then apply glycolic acid products on days that you don’t physically exfoliate when washing. Instead apply a non-glycolic acid product after exfoliating and use your glycolic acid product when you don’t exfoliate
  • If your skin develops irritation, an injury, a sunburn or windburn or a rash, you must not apply glycolic acid to those areas of your skin. Wait until your skin is entirely healed plus at least 2 weeks. Glycolic acid will further irritate irritated skin, compounding the inflammation, preventing healing and possibly resulting in scarring or dyspigmentation. 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 electrolysis, laser, chemical peels, waxing 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.
