Perfection Pads for Acne to Anti-Aging via Zo Skin Health, MD SkinCare, Somme Institut and PTR!
I realized the other day that for as long as I can remember I’ve thought that in general teens and young adults with oily skin grow up to have gorgeous (younger looking) skin because the extra oil has kept their skin lubricated. However, it hit me that perhaps that’s not the principal or only reason…but rather that it’s how they aggressively took care of it instead.
Think about how you or anyone you knew who had oily skin constantly used products to soak up the excess oil and to keep blemishes at bay. So perhaps it’s that One, they got a head start on diligently caring for their skin and even more on point might be that it’s the ingredients they used in those products. How many of us have seen "Stridex-type" pads in a teens medicine cabinet or used those kinds of preparations ourselves? Well those pads are often made with glycolic acids such as alpha and beta hydroxy acids. These acids are very effective in sebum control and acne but they are also used for anti-aging and dry skin issues.
Check out the list below for some of the best glycolic ‘multi-tasking’ pads on the market today:
