We all know the importance of washing our face at night, but how do you know which product is right for you? A multi-purpose cleanser can be an excellent choice for the treatment of acne-prone and oily skin and Dr. Wright’s All-in-One Acne Cleanser includes 2 ingredients that will become your new best friends: Glycolic and Salicylic Acid.
Glycolic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane. It is the smallest AHA molecule and works by penetrating the skin and breaking up the bonds that hold dead cells to the surface of the skin. It exfoliates and revitalizes skin by allowing fresh, new skin cells to come to the surface. Salicylic Acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that comes from the heart of the sweet bark and willow bark trees. It is used as both a peel and a topical acne treatment. It is a peeling agent and an anti-inflammatory that is able to dissolve sebum found in the pores, flush it out and shrink the pore itself.
With our amazing All-In-One Cleansers, I have three different strengths to suit all oily skin care needs; they all contain 2% salicylic acid, with the option of a 2%, 5 % or 10% glycolic. Start with the lowest concentration and work your way up to a stronger one. Be sure to use a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15, as the new skin you are revealing is very sensitive to sun damage. With careful use, Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid can give you younger looking skin, reduce acne and acne scarring, and control oil production giving your appearance an overall boost.
