GlyMed Plus Skin Peeling Lotion 4 oz
This powerful blend of salicylic and lactic acids, sulfur and resorcinol addresses acne conditions that are more resistant to treatment. Our unique formula encourages peeling while killing bacteria, suppresses oil production and helps stimulate healing.
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.
Resorcinol: Applauded for its antiseptic, astringent and anti-bacterial components, resorcinol is an integral ingredient to potentiate desquamation promote faster healing of acne skin. Resorcinol is also an excellent ingredient to inhibit oil production.
Lactic Acid: An alpha hydroxy acid that diminishes the cohesion of surface skin cells and subsequently, prevents the thickening of the stratum corneum. Lactic acid is absorbed across the stratum corneum so the lower layers of this section of the epidermis, and assists in cell detachment from that level. The resulting smoothness and flexibility of the skin's surface is evident soon after application. It has a larger molecular size than glycolic acid and is absorbed more gradually across the epidermis with less irritation.
Sulfur: A skin conditioning agent that reduces existing comedones and prevents the formation of new ones.
Cleanse skin thoroughly with a mild exfoliating or acne-specific facial wash. Cover the entire affected area with a thin layer of Skin Peeling Lotion. Apply 1 to 3 times daily or as directed. If excessive dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to every other day.
