How Do I Use My Glycolic, Lactic or Salicylic Acid Set?
Our fabulous little sets are a great way to introduce yourself to the amazing skin benefits of acid exfoliation as they give you the correct cleanser and toner to use before your acid, which is very important to get the best results, you don't want to use a cleanser with acids, harsh ingredients or exfoliators.
The acids come with full instructions and explain how to cleanse, tone and use the acid but to add a little more clarity -
I'd recommend you use your acids in the evening. To start, you'd use your sample of first cleanse oil, about a 5-10 pence piece depending on if you're wearing make-up, massage in to dry skin for roughly a minute, apply a little water which will turn your cleanser milky and rinse, do not use a face flannel, cottons pads or a cleansing brush, nothing that will drag the skin. Then pat (DO NOT RUB) your skin dry. Double cleansing in the evening is very important so repeat the process once more.
Toner, put a cotton pad (the flat pads, not cotton wool) directly on to the neck of the bottle and tilt, move the pad around and do this roughly 5 times, there should be enough toner. Gently wipe all over your face and neck, leave to dry.
You are now ready to use your acid, following the instructions that were included.
I hope that helps? If anyone has any more questions, please feel free to pop them below.
