GlyMed Plus Serious Action Skin Gel 4 oz
This weightless, 100% water based, oil free medication refines acne prone skin and helps prevent breakouts. Salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids penetrate pores to attack acne causing elements at their source.
- Salicylic Acid: Salicylic acid works by softening keratin, a protein that forms part of the skin structure. This helps to loosen dry scaly skin, making it easier to remove. When salicylic acid is used in combination with other ingredients, it takes off the upper layer of the skin allowing the additional medicines to penetrate more effectively. In acne, salicylic acid helps slow down shedding of the cells inside the follicles, preventing clogging. Salicylic acid also helps break down blackheads and whiteheads.
- Glycolic Acid: An alpha hydroxy acid used to treat acne, and in chemical peels. Resolves dry skin conditions and visibly reduces pores and wrinkles. It removes thin lesions on the surface of the skin, reducing pigment and surface dryness.
- Lactic Acid: An alpha hydroxy acid that diminishes the cohesion of the surface skin cells and subsequently, prevents the thickening of the stratum corneum. Lactic acid is absorbed across the stratum corneum and assists in cell detachment from that level. The resulting smoothness and flexibility of the skin's surface is evident soon after application.
- Tea Tree Oil: Known for its antiseptic and skin healing properties. It promotes strong healing for the relief of symptoms such as acne and other skin infections. Derived from the Australian tea tree, the oil is a powerful germicide, fungicide and antiseptic.
Apply a small amount of gel to clean skin, gently working into affected area until absorbed. Recommended for daily use.
