Instructions for using Special Agents –  Salicylic or Glycolic

Based on your skin type, we add either Salicylic or Glycolic to your current skin care routine to boost its effectiveness.  If your skin turns red easily or if you have swollen capillaries at the skin’s surface, we recommend Salicylic.  If your skin does not have these characteristics, we recommend Glycolic.

Both Salicylic and Glycolic are designed to shed away dead skin cells trapped inside the hair follicles which cause acne to form.  These products also help to reduce scarring and improve the texture of your skin.

They are applied as the first product to your skin after washing with your cleanser. Let Salicylic or Glycolic  dry completely before applying your next product. AVOID EYE AREA.

  • Use a cotton ball to apply Salicylic
  • Use your fingertips to apply a very thin layer of Glycolic

We recommend incorporating either the Salicylic or Glycolic into your EVENING routine first, then after 2-3 weeks you may add it to your Morning routine, if needed. Please check in with us after 2 weeks of use.

Remember we are preventing new pimples from forming, so it is very important to be diligent with your treatment.  We want your skin to become slightly dry and flaky, but NEVER red or irritated.  If this occurs, please call or text us at (925) 933-8425 or shoot us an e-mail.
