Platinum Skin Care's acid toner has a full 15% of glycolic/lactic/salicylic acid for maximum effectiveness on acne prone and oily skin. The average store bought glycolic toner has only 2% or 3%. It is used before your peels to prepare the skin for further treatment, and also on a daily basis thereafter to help lift away surface impurities. This is a wonderful product to start off using if you have sensitive skin and/or would like to build up to an acne peel. An alternative to this toner is our Purify Advanced Toner.
Acne sufferers please note
It takes approximately 3 weeks for a clogged pore in your skin to actually become a pimple/whitehead... and make its way up to your face. When you start using these glycolic acid products you need to remember to give your skin time to rid itself of the clogged pores that have already formed under your skin. This may take up to 3 weeks. After the clogged pores have made their way out you will see a remarkable difference in the clarity of your skin! The glycolic acid will help to keep your pores clear so the process doesn't keep repeating itself.
