Thanks to the use of nanotechnology, ACGLICOLIC CLASSIC Gel achieves a maximum effectiveness of glycolic acid, without irritation. This makes it suitable for all types of skin, although its formula is specifically designed for oily skin. If you have combination or normal skin, choose ACGLICOLIC CLASSIC Gel-Cream; if your type is dry, go for ACGLICOLIC CLASSIC Moisturizing Cream.
This anti-aging, “Photoshop-like” gel acts reducing wrinkles and blemishes while evening out skin tone and shrinking pores. What’s more, it produces a gentle exfoliating massage which improves skin renewal. The results are visible right from the first application. It also helps heal acne marks.
Note that, when applied for the very first times, you may feel a stinging sensation or experience redness, but this is temporary and will disappear after continued use, when skin gets used to glycolic acid. Likewise, at the start of the treatment small pimples may appear due to the cleansing action on the skin (as impurities are released from skin).
If this is the first time you are using a glycolic acid-based cosmetic, we recommend that you start with the ACGLICOLIC CLASSIC Collection, with a low concentration of the acid. Over time, when your skin gets used to the ingredient, products with a higher concentration of the acid may be applied (ACGLICOLIC 20) for improved results and a more renewed and hydrated skin.
It is important to always apply a sunblock during the day, or use the product only at night, as its exfoliating effects increase the sensitivity of skin to sun.
- Cleanse and tone your skin.
- Then, apply ACGLICOLIC Serum or your regular serum (the combination with C-Vit liposomal serum is fantastic).
- Apply ACGLICOLIC CLASSIC Moisturizing Gell with a gentle massage. The correct amount is the size of a hazelnut. Extend evenly over face, neck and décolleté. You can use it both in the morning or at night.
- Don’t forget your sunscreen! Since glycolic acid increases skin sensitivity to sun.
