Short on time, or just don’t have patience for a complicated skin care regimen? These pre-soaked pads are the simplest pathway to clear, brilliant, skin.
One of our best sellers of all time, the BMD Glycolic Pads are tried and true. Designed for skin that struggles with mild to moderate acne breakouts, these handy pads are tough on dirt, excess oil and clogged pores. The active ingredient, Glycolic Acid, is derived from cane sugar, is all natural, and is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers (unusual for acne maintenance products). The addition of Witch Hazel delivers skin toning and astringent benefits without drying skin out. Throw these pads into your sports bag and effectively prevent clogged pores and kill bacteria in one simple step by giving your trouble spots a wipe down after any sweaty activity. Want even better news? By chemically exfoliating the skin you are effectively improving skin cell turnover, and this means awesome anti-aging results. NOTE: Regular use of these pads exfoliates skin, so you will need to take extra care to use sun protection daily to prevent sunburn.
- Cost effective: 60 pads last 60+ days
- Prevents clogged pores and acne breakouts
- Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
- Evens out skin tone
- Reduces superficial oil without stripping skin
Glycolic acid is our favorite alpha hydroxy acid (AHA)! It is an all-natural substance that is derived from the sugar cane plant, making it safe for all skin types, tones, ages, and hormonal statuses. It is colorless, odorless and is highly soluble in water, so it is a smart addition to water-based skin care products like the BMD Glycolic Pads. The molecule itself is very small in comparison to other AHAs so its penetrating ability is stellar and results in products that your skin finds easy to absorb. Glycolic acid works as an anti-aging ingredient in two ways: (1) it gently exfoliates skin to reduce the appearance of pores and lifts dark patches and (2) improves the production of collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. By removing the topmost layer of skin it also prevents clogged pores which are the result of these excess skin cells getting trapped in the sebum you naturally produce.
