If you want to know more…
Derived from almonds, Mandelic acid is a powerful acid that (gently) goes to battle with the oil, acne, and bacteria that disrupts the skin’s natural glow. The pads themselves provide a slight exfoliation, dislodging dead skin cells to allow this potent formula to get down to business.
Oh, by the way…
The natural anti-bacterial properties of Mandelic acid loosen impacted and clogged pores while penetrating the skin to boost cell regeneration and skin elasticity. As a result, wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots begin to fade away.
How to use:
Use every other day to start. Best used in the evening after washing face.
As skin begins to adjust to the product, increase to 2 times a day.
If battling active acne lesions or impactions, first apply ice to inflamed skin and then proceed with pads. (If you apply ice after pad you’ll dilute the healing effects of the acids from the pad.)
Do not rise after use. Let skin absorb acids fully.
To apply – Wipe pad across forehead with moderate pressure (not too much at first!).
From the forehead, move to cheek and down to jawline. Then wipe pad upward to cheek.
Repeat on other side of face. Last, apply to nose and chin. Careful around corners of mouth and corners of nose, where skin is more sensitive. *Do not use more than once a day if skin around the mouth is too sensitive.
