Aqua Glycolic [Ends Acne. Ends Red Marks]

Recommended Posts

I just got my AG on Monday. I just stopped using full face DKR BP about 2 weeks ago...

new reg:

Morning:

AG cleanser pre/during shower (get in shower with dry face, massage for about a minute, add water, massage another minute, then gently rins

A little BP on any big spots

Complex 15 lotion

Makeup:

Physician's Formula Mineral talc-free creme concealer

Phyisican's Formula Powder Palette multi-color face powder

Night:

Wash my face when I get home/in evening (around 5-6pm) with DKR Cleanser

BP on spots in evening

Complex 15 on before bed

I also do Baking soda every other day or so with evening wash, and take YAZ birth control

I like the Ag so far, I have a few breakouts, but I think part is coming off of the BP full time. I have seen a bit less redness, but it is still early. I like the way the AG cleanser makes my skin feel.

this stuff is wonderfull..But im starting Accutane tomorrow, Can i still use this as my cleanser while on accutane??

Your skin is going to be very delicate. This would probably be a good question to ask your doctor.

Hey! Well it's been months since I've been on here, I've been using the aqua glycolic since...August I think? Yeah August and its really wonderful. I used to apply it to my skin and leave it on for 15-20 minutes morning and night. I've stopped doing that and do it whenever I feel my skin needs extra cleansing. Right now my skin is doing pretty good. I use a moisturizer that contains vitamins A and E and it also has alpha hydroxy acid in it. I just wash with Purpose face cleanser and a hand scrubby thing. My skin is pretty clear right now, no major breakouts or anything.

For everyone who breaks out with AG:

Just STAY WITH IT. For the first couple weeks, I had no strange breakouts (other than the normal acne I had on my neck and cheeks), and my face was looking great... but then my neck started to break out more than usual. I was too happy with my previous results, so I stayed with it. I'm glad to say that my neck now doesn't break out at all, and its looking great; the red marks are fading and everything. The only thing I gotta deal with now is my forehead breaking out. I've always had blackheads on my forehead but they never developed into acne. Now I started using the toner, and they are starting to form... But I am very confident that once these blackheads form into acne and eventually heal up, I'm not gonna have any more breakouts... And my face will be finally clear :D.

Can you use the Aqua Glycolic Facial cleanser for the body to? In my case the neck??

No one?

I can't see why not. Facial cleansers are milder than body cleansers, so facial cleanser shouldnt do harm to the body, but body cleansers on face is not good, as I see it.

is it safe to use this cleanser while under vbeam+smoothbeam treatments?

It will make your skin even more sensitive, red, and prone to sunburn.

ive officially decided to stop using this... yes i used to think it was great too, but im not sure whether it was the clenser or the toner, but one of them made me break in new places, (i started the toner about 1 week after using the clenser) and now that ive stopped, the new areas havnt stopped. Now theses areas have actuall never grew pimples, im talking like near th ear/temple and jaw area

hmphhhh

alpha hydrox lotion i use once in a while, i dont think breaks me out though, but for now, im going easy on that too

guess theres nothing thats for everybody :/

There is a chance that it is the Toner, it could be the culprit. Try taking that out for about a week or so and see.

I've been using AG for 2 weeks now and overall I am happy. I have had some small (I call them pinpoint) breakouts around my hairline and couple just under my mouth, but they have seemed to be going away. I notice a lot less redness from any old marks too. Going to wait it out since this is better than BP Gel which made me pretty dry...

I've been using this stuff for about 2 months and its done good in reducing my redmarks, not alot but I've seen some changes, but I dunno if its the cold now cause of winter but I have broken out so bad. I broke out BADLY when I first started it, but then it kinda calmdown but now its worst again. This sucks because my face was finally starting to get in control and all I had was redmarks and now I'm all fucked up again. I'm 22 damn it, I'm tired of this shit, I'm tired of doing this, I just want something that will work. I was ready to do a peel to, and now I have to wait till my face settles down. I stopped with the Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle, cause I think that was making things worst, cause I only apply it to my cheeks no where else and that's where I am breaking out the most. So now I'm just using the cleanser and a moisturizer, I dunno if that's going to work.

I wanna scream so bad, I'm just tired of this. :cry:

I think you need to focus on getting rid of the acne.

Maybe you should try something like vitamin b5. Im gonna soon get my b5 package. Zink can work wonders too. I used 100+ mg zink each day, and it reduced my acne alot I think.

Right now I am taking Fish Oil and have been since the start of the year, I don't think its really done anything. How much do you think its reduced your acne taking zink?

You can read about zink here http://www.acne.org/messageboard/PLEASE-READ-t38647.html

I dont know how it will work for you, but I think it certainly will improve your skin, and kill some acne.

Since youre rally tired of your acne, you should study these forums and find out what could be the best solution for you to get rid of your acne. ;]

Btw, I see you use GA twice a day. I've read that some peoole reccomend to use it only once a day.

A mild cleanser that does not peel/exfoliate your skin.
