Skin Medica’s new GlyPro ia a glycolic acid cleanser that uses eco-friendly microbeads to give you the combined benefits of chemical and manual exfoliation. This encourages skin cell turnover while reducing the look of premature aging. It will also help to refine pore size, smooth and brighten skin, and unclog pores.

APPROPRIATE FOR: All skin types
If you like facial scrubs or cleansers with scrubbing microbeads you will like this cleanser. If you like other glycolic product lines, such as Vivite, MD forte or JanMarini’s Bioglycolic, this will likely be a favorite.
PURPOSE: Sloughs off the top layer of skin to reveal fresh, new skin. Proper deep cleansing improves efficacy of other skin care products.
WHEN TO APPLY: Use 2 – 3 times a week, in the morning and in the evening as tolerated. Alternate GlyPro with your regular cleanser. We do not recommend using this cleanser to remove I make-up.
WHERE TO APPLY: Evenly onto face (neck and chest if desired)
HOW TO APPLY: Moisten skin with lukewarm water. Apply a small amount to fingertips, add a little water and gently massage into face (neck and chest if desired). Rinse thoroughly with warm water. After cleansing and gently patting skin dry, apply other treatment products if you are using them, followed by moisturizer and sunscreen (a.m. only)

Hollywood Secret

Anti Aging – Anti Acneic – Brighten / Active Serum, fans are said to include Halle Berry and Charlezie Theron

Active Serum is in the top 5 of my favorite skin products, and I have tried a lot of products!
I’m not alone, all of the Estheticians I know love it and I can’t remember ever having a client say they didn’t like it.

I will sometimes incorperate Active Serum into my Obagi Protocol by mixing it with Exfoderm, or put it directly on my skin before tretinoin ( Retin-A). If I am not using Retin-A, I use Active Serum AM and PM before other creams.

Originally designed as an anti- acne formula, this product contains a combination of ingredients that target other concerns such as aging and pigmentation. Active Serum is appropriate for most skin types and can be incorporated into other skin regimens. Although is Clinical Active serum contains active exfoliates it will not cause skin peeling.

Active serum is applied in the evening after cleansing, and before any creams. Active Serum is contraindicated after chemical peels and many laser treatments, it may also cause irritation when used with some acne products. Be sure to consult with your Esthetician before using this product.
