Aqua Glycolic [Ends Acne. Ends Red Marks]

Recommended Posts

Thanks!

I didn't know that, makes me a little skeptical. Maybe i'll just get to using the AG twice a day once it arrives.

So, I would apply it to dry skin, wash it off, and while the skin's wet, apply it again and rinse that off? Seems easy, and would it be okay to use clindamycin phosphate at night after I use the Aqua Glycolic, or would that be a bit too much?

No what you do is apply it to dry skin, message it, add water, messeage again, and then you rinse the cleanser off. I tried using Evoclin after I washed my face with AG and it was too much. Keep in mind though I have very sensitive skin

I prefer just apply on dry skin, massage and rinse, imo, no need to "add water and continue to massage."

do you guys know by any chance if this aqua glycolic is good for red spots from chemical peel?

Wait, so you got hyperpigmentation from using chemical peels?

Okay, thanks :dance:

:doh: The Cetaphil could be the reason why i've been breaking out, when I was just on the clindamycin for a few days my acne was under control and I just had the redness.

yah i think so. I exfoliated too much I think that after I washed my face, I noticed a few red, tender spots on my nose and left cheek. The esthetician told me i can use some aloe vera or cocoa butter on the spots. Are these really good remedies? somehow I feel he just wanted to make me feel better. What do I do? will this aqua glycolic help since some of the people on this thread said that it somehow helped with their acne marks?

You probably misused the chemical peels, chemical peels can be very tricky to use by yourself, next time get someone professional to do it for you, forking out some money is better than discoloring you tone. Aloe ver and cocoa butter soothes down redness. Hm.. I am not sure, hyperpigmentation is from the acne, but yours are from chemical peels. I think it's worth it to try though, because exfoliating with Aqua Glycolic will shed those pink or red spots and turn up the new good looking skin cells.

Thanks for the advise! really helped me feel a lot better. I actually went to an esthetician for the peel, sorry that I haven't mentioned it in my last post. Last night, I put a lot of cocoa butter on my entire face especially on the red spots and voila! today the red spot seemed to have lightened down a bit. I did it again tonite and might do it for few more weeks until I see an even bigger improvement. I am definitely looking forward to trying this aqua glycolic as well! :cool:

so which one did you buy? because there are many different products from Aqua Glycolic...

Cleanser, imo, it is the best of all 3(toner, and face cream).

hey guys i have a quick question, I just got chemical peel last week and the derm gave me a whole bottle of aqua glycolic for free. Also he switched me from differin.3 to tazorac. I remember when I was on differin that i would have to cleanse with a regular cleanser like cetaphil before washing with a benzoyl peroxide wash in the morning in order to wash off the differin. Should I use only the aqua glycolic in the morning on dry skin or should i wash the tazorac off first?

Thanks,

Aaron

how long do you guys leave your GA cleanser on?

i apply it dry like many of you have said and massage it in for about 2 minutes then rinse it off.

i read that in order for GA to work you need to leave it on for 30 minutes, which doesn't seem reasonable unless it was in a serum that stays on all day.

Where did you hear that from? I dont think the person who told you that is giving you accurate information. When I was using AG, I only left it on for a few seconds and then I added water, messaged it more, and then I rinsed it off

Does anyone know how many percent glycolic acid is in the face cream? Can't find info on that anywhere, but if it's less than 10% it's worthless for my marks...

That person is wrong.... max time you need to massage it for is 30 seconds to a minute.

This is a cleanser, not a serum, so don't leave it on.

12%

Thanks. Where did you find that info, on the bottle? Is it the same percentage for the cleanser, toner as well? This might be an option if I don't find the souffle.... :dance:

Thanks for the concern. I'm already done using the cocoa butter. I only needed it to calm the redness down. I know I said i was gonna use it for few weeks because I thought it would take awhile for the redness to go away but after few days, they were gone. I'm not planning on using it as a regimen. :lol:

I've read all pages in this thread, and I'm really considering purchasing this product. Only because I feel like it would be quicker, and easier than putting Vitamin-E oil on my red marks. I'm really looking for results here, guys. These red marks are very annoying and they make me extremely insecure. I have a very light, beautiful skin tone on my face, except for these damn marks in some places. My acne is under control, so I'm hoping this product doesn't break me out?

For people who've been on this product for long, what sort of success are you seeing?

I do not recommend you get all three of the products, the toner and face cream do not get very good reviews. Just use cleanser.

Reduced redness in hyperpigmentation, smoother skin, some claim it has helped their acne, more healthier looking skin.

If I am on dan's regimen, would I be better off replacing the cleanser with the aqua glycolic cleanser and still using the BP, or should i drop the BP/regimen altogether if I am going to try the AG?

I've been using Aqua Glycolic for three months now and I've been very patient and I'm still breaking out all over. It smooths my skin but it makes me break out in crazy places. I'm thinking about discontinuing it and regret trying it since I got redmarks now and my redmarks take years to heal.
