I noticed that my skin seems to peel immediately after applying Facial Hydrator, is that exfoliation?
No, Facial Hydrator contains many hydrating ingredients and requires a very small amount (approximately the size of a pea). Many individuals have a tendency to over use these products but the skin can only utilize a certain amount. The remainder will roll off. Try downsizing the portion that you are using.
My esthetician recommended Facial Hydrator for my acne but I noticed it is not in the Serious Acne line, was she incorrect?
Glycolic Acid can be beneficial in treating acne because it helps to slough off dead skin cells that may be lying over and blocking pores creating a buildup inside. In addition, when acne skin is dry, it becomes irritated and does not heal. Facial Hydrator has ingredients that act as humectants to hydrate your skin. It is a fallacy that acne skin needs to be dry.
My skin became red and irritated when I applied this product. Am I allergic?
These reactions alone are common to individuals when they first start using a professional product. The skin is simply adjusting to the activity of the product. If it is excessive you may want to limit use to once every other day or every third day for the first two weeks to allow your skin to adjust. Remember to always wear your GlyMed Plus sunscreen when using an alpha hydroxy acid.
Is this product safe for pregnant or breastfeeding moms?
Yes, however, your skin is more vulnerable to sun exposure during this time so make sure you are always wearing your GlyMed Plus sunscreen when outdoors.
