Jan Marini Bioglycolic Oily Skin Cleansing Gel
(same as bioglycolic cleanser but in a gel form and not a cream)
Jan Marini Bioglycolic Oily Skin Cleansing Gel cleans deep inside the follicles which provides benefits for very oily or problem skin. If used daily, the skin changes it's appearance and looks a lot less oily, with a smoother texture. This gel-based formula was designed for oilier skins.
- Glycolic acid targets the excessively oily skin
- The gel lathers well and leaves the skin feeling soft and clean
- Acne scarring and lesions can be greatly reduced
Suitable for very oily skin types
For all other skin types skin types use Bioglycolic facial cleanser
Use on dry skin. Apply small amount (1 pump) massage over the face and neck area. Leave on the skin a for a couple of minutes, water maybe added now to create lather. Rinse face and neck well and blot dry.
Use once or twice daily.
Don't use as an eye make up remover. You can use Age Intervention cleanser to remove make-up. For men use C-ESTA cleansing gel , great for shaving. Use Clean Zyme Green Papaya Cleanser if you want a exfoliating cleanser, but cannot tolerate glycolic acid.
Jan Marini don't recommend using Glycolic Acid during pregnancy unless you have previously used it.
Products that contain Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA's) may cause initial flaking, tingling or irriation to the skin. For some this may be part of the normal resurfacing process.This generally improves as the skin ‘gets used’ to the treatment. AHA products may be introduced with less frequent use, and application can be increased as the skin acclimates (follow product directions). At first start by gradually introducing one AHA product at a time into your skincare regime. Also some breakouts may occur initially, due to purging of the follicles.
Discontinue use if you have severe redness, itching, burning, rash, swelling or blistering.
Apply a sunscreen daily when using products that contain Alpha Hydroxy acids (AHA's).
