Are you looking for a convenient solution for clear, smooth skin?
Advanced Skin Therapeutics Glycolic/Salicylic Pads, available in 2% Glycolic/2% Salicylic, 5% Glycolic/2% Salicylic, and 10% Glycolic/2% Salicylic is a skincare solution formulated to cleanse your pores and renew your skin.
These potent pads unclog pores and accelerate the removal of dead skin cells for a more radiant complexion free from excess oil and flakes.
The Potent Duo of Glycolic & Salicylic Acid
To truly appreciate the effectiveness of these pads, let’s first look at their complementary active ingredients.
Glycolic Acid: A Master Exfoliator
Glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), gently exfoliates the skin by breaking down the “glue” that binds skin cells together, helping to accelerate the skin’s natural shedding process, removing dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion underneath. This process stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
In addition, glycolic acid helps to stimulate the growth of new skin cells, thus boosting the skin’s natural regeneration process. In turn, it can fade discoloration, sun spots, and uneven skin tone, making your skin appear more youthful and radiant.
This acid is derived from sugarcane and is one of the safest forms of AHA. Its smaller molecular size allows it to penetrate the skin more readily, leading to more effective exfoliation and skin brightening.
Salicylic Acid: Pore-Cleansing Superstar
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that works its magic by penetrating deep into the pores, where it dissolves excess sebum and debris that lead to blackheads, whiteheads, and acne, allowing the skin to breathe and regenerate more healthily.
It’s also an excellent inflammatory, so salicylic acid is particularly beneficial for individuals with acne-prone skin, as it helps to soothe red, inflamed breakouts. Salicylic acid possesses antimicrobial properties that help to prevent the spread of acne-causing bacteria, reducing the likelihood of future breakouts.
How Glycolic Acid & Salicylic Acid Work Together
Advanced Skin Therapeutics’ Gly/Sal Pads combine both of these powerful ingredients into one pore-cleansing, acne-eliminating skincare solution.
Glycolic acid removes the surface layer of dead skin cells, paving the way for salicylic acid to reach deep into the pores. This collaborative effort ensures thorough exfoliation and deep cleansing while balancing the skin’s pH, which can boost your skin’s overall health and resilience.
Advanced Skin Therapeutics pads are offered in three distinct formulations: 2% Glycolic/2% Salicylic, 5% Glycolic, 2% Salicylic, 10% Glycolic, 2% Salicylic for tailored skincare, depending on your skin’s sensitivity and needs. Each formulation has been carefully calibrated to provide the optimum balance of exfoliation, pore-cleansing, and skin-brightening.
Are Advanced Skin Therapeutics Gly/Sal Pads Right for You?
The beauty of AST Gly/Sal Pads lies in their versatility. If you have oily or combination skin prone to acne, blackheads, or whiteheads, this product could be your skin’s new best friend because the salicylic acid content will help keep your pores clear of blockages, while the glycolic acid will keep your skin’s surface smooth and fresh.
Those with dry or sensitive skin can also reap the benefits of these pads, particularly with the Gly/Sal 2-2 formulation. Salicylic acid is drying and can be harsh for those with sensitive skin, so the less potent formulation would be a much gentler introduction than other acne products. The exfoliating properties of glycolic acid can help to remove dry, flaky skin, while the anti-inflammatory properties of salicylic acid can soothe the redness and swelling of blemishes.
The Gly/Sal 5-2 Pads are great option to step up your acne treatment and speed up turn over of your skin.
For those looking for an extra anti-aging tool and scarring/pigmentation correction, the Gly/Sal 10-2 pads will help to turn over the skin faster for a smoother, even texture, while stimulating collagen and cleaning out the pores.
How to Incorporate Gly/Sal Pads Into Your Skincare Routine
It’s simple to add Gly/Sal Pads into your skincare routine. After cleansing, gently glide the pad across your face, avoiding the eye area.
You can use these pads once daily, ideally in the evening, so it can work its magic overnight. After applying the pad, let your skin dry for a few minutes to allow the acids to penetrate effectively. Make sure to follow up with a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated.
With Advanced Skin Therapeutics Glycolic and Salicylic Pads, it’s time to say goodbye to clogged pores and dull skin and say hello to a rejuvenated and radiant complexion!
