Enter our Glytone Giveaway for a Chance to Win!

With all the acne products on the market, very few can actually deliver on the results they promise, and even fewer can do so without irritating the skin. For many people struggling with acne, getting clear skin at the expense of over-exfoliating or damaging their skin’s natural moisture barrier is worth it.

Glytone’s new Anti-Irritating Acne Treatment Kit is designed to change all that. It features gentle and effective formulations that banish breakouts without the irritation using innovative exclusive technologies along with glycolic and salicylic acids—the optimal combination for proven acne treatment results. The 3-part regimen consists of:

Acne Self-Foaming Cleanser – Features a self-foaming technology that prolongs contact of salicylic acid, which sloughs off dead skin cells and helps reduce acne bacteria. Anti-inflammatory properties soothe and reduce redness and swelling while leaving your skin feeling refreshed, clean and comfortable.

Acne 3P Gel – Uses micronized benzoyl peroxide and 3P Technology to provide gradual, continuous delivery of benzoyl peroxide, which helps oxidize pores and reduce acne bacteria, dramatically reducing the risk of irritation. A hydro-gel matrix helps skin hold moisture, reducing the risk of flakiness and dryness.

Acne Lotion – Designed for daily use, it enhances penetration of 1% salicylic acid to help remove dead skin cells and reduce acne bacteria. Plus, a hydro-gel matrix offers continuous hydration to allow skin to heal comfortably.

These 3 formulas make up our latest giveaway, so you can have a chance at clearer skin without sacrificing your skin’s health!

    Keep your hair off your face – If you have long hair or bangs, pull your hair off your face. Your hair contains oils as well, and will contribute to your breakouts. You’ll also want to wash your hair everyday and after workouts

    My best way is to wash with a gel cleanser with salicylic acid, as I have combination skin and am prone to breaking out (especially in the humid summer weather!). Next, I use a toner, and lastly an oil-free moisturizer.

    The most important thing for me in treating acne was actually making sure I was doing two things: washing makeup off at night, and washing my face well in the morning. As a teenager, I didn’t do this, and my skin suffered for it. As an adult, I realize this is important, and I make sure I do it, and my skin has gotten a lot healthier because of it. The only acne I get now is very occasional, or hormone-related (I have PCOS, so it’s a part of my life), and it’s a lot easier for me to deal with than how it used to be when I was in my teens. Thanks Dermstore for the giveaway opportunity.

    What are your tips for treating acne?
    ~ My tips are: 1. eating healthy (what you put in your body affects it on the outside), 2. drink plenty of water, 3. exfoliate (1x per week – too much is not good) and 4. moisturize (even if you have naturally oily skin, you still need to moistuize otherwise your body will produce even more oil to compensate).

    Usually something that contains salicylic acid is good for drying out the breakouts and gently peeling off the dead skin. I also put a drop of tea tree oil on affected areas for more intense treatment.

    To treat acne, I dab a sulfur and clay based mask on problem areas and leave it on overnight. I also use a glycolic acid based cleanser to help with exfoliation (with the appropriate Clarisonic brush head). Also, making sure that your pillow cases are fresh and clean every night (and washed in fragrance free detergent), and remembering to keep your hands off of your face helps to reduce bacteria/irritants. Keep your skin hydrated by drinking lots of water and using an appropriate moisturizer.

    For acne: Keep your hands away from your face during the day. Don’t use harsh cleansers (they make your skin produce more oil). Use lightweight moisturizers, but don’t skip moisturizer completely.

    I’m a model, so having acne isn’t an option! I MUST exfoliate in order to keep my pores unclogged, but I don’t use an abrasive scrub, I use a product with Glycolic acid in it to make sure I get rid of all the surface oils. My favorite product from Dermstore is Glycolix Elite Treatment Pads 20 Percent. They work wonders! And I love the fact that it treats acne and helps with the signs of aging! I’d love a chance at winning this product to see if it works on my acne while fighting the signs of aging, it sure sounds like it would!

    Put sunblock on whenever you’re going to be in contact with the sun! The sun darkens the scars and you wouldn’t want that. Apply moisturizers, serum, and exfoliating helps turn the skin over for new cells faster :)

    Hi,

    I would love to win and try Glytone’s anti acne treatment kit. I am suffering from back cystic acne and been using several topical lotions. After bath, I use toner on my back, then apply tea tree oil directly. Let it sit and dry then put Mario Badescu Drying Lotion ( contains salicyclic ). This work at times. Sometimes I use Peter Thomas Roth which contains sulfur or Boscia which contains Willow Bark. Havent tried anything with Benzoyl Peroxide yet which is why I would love to win maybe it will work best for me. Thanks!

    A good skin care routine consists of cleansing, exfoliating, toning, moisturizing to hydrate skin, and applying treatment products with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. In addition, eating healthy, drinking lots of water, and taking a biotin daily vitamin has significantly improved my skin. It is important to use glycolics as an acne treatment and anti-aging regimen. Use a serum to repair and rejuvenate your skin. Keep hair clean and away from face. Avoid putting your hands on your face, do not pick or squeeze pimples. Be sure to use sunblock with SPF 15 or higher for UVB protection. And always remove makeup with a foaming face-wash before going to bed in order to let your skin breathe and get rid of free radicals by unclogging pores and purifying your skin.

    What works best for me is not over-cleansing, using a light moisturizer, spot treating with tea tree or neem oil when necessary and working with a dermatologist when all else fails. Also, not touching or picking at blemishes and drinking lots of water, using a good peel or microdermabrasion kit once or twice a week and sticking with the regimen helps maintain good skin and reduce the odds of breakouts.

    I have adult acne, so I have to deal with acne and fine lines at the same time! I wash with Glytone Self-Foaming Acne cleanser (the best I’ve ever used) and I leave it on for 30 seconds as a mask. Then I swipe on diluted tea tree oil as a toner. I follow that with my usual anti-aging skin care regimen.

    Other tips: wash face immediately after workouts, drink A LOT of water, eat healthy, avoid touching your face unnecessarily, find makeup that doesn’t irritate your skin, keep your hair pulled back from your face, be happy!

    My tip for treating acne is to be super gentle when you have an outbreak! You want to avoid aggravating it or creating scars. No harsh scrubs, wash with just lukewarm water rather than HOT water, use products directed towards sensitive skin even if you don’t think you have sensitive skin, and wear SPF to protect your skin!

    My best acne tip is to see your derm regularly, wash with a gentle cleaner (my fav is glytone gentle cream wash) and use a tinted moisturizer with spf for protection and a solid foundation for everything else. I’ve found that Glytone Step 1 facial cream also really helps with my monthly breakouts along my jawline- after cleansing it gets into the pores and you can feel it working!!

    Ive used glytone products ever since they were offered at my dermatologists office. Aside from drinking plenty of water, my tips would be to avoid touching your face at all cost, give you’re skin a break from makeup, and for me I used a salicylic acid Toner ( glytone) after washing in the a.m ( followed by a perscription benzoyl peroxide lotion im trying to replace with something else) and a glycolic acid exfoliating lotion ( also by glytone)in the p.m. Both followed by a light moisturizer. This has worked great for my cystic acne prone skin :)

    What a great giveaway! My tips for treating acne include: gentle face cleanser, product with salicydic acid, don’t pick at your pimples!, drink lots of water and eat a healthy diet with lots of fruits, nuts, fish and vegetables. Also, people with acne feel their skin is already oily and they skip the moisturizer. Don’t do that! Include an oil-free moisturizer in your daily routine as well as a sunscreen.

    BE GENTLE TO YOUR SKIN! When I have acne flare-ups, I scale back on my skincare products. I simplifying my routine by using a very gentle cleanser (fragrance-free). I apply a thin layer of a 2% BHA gel all over my face. I then apply a thin layer of 2.5% BP all over my face. I wait for that to soak in for about 5 minutes. Then I apply my oil-free SPF. This works like a charm for me. I don’t normally use BP on a daily basis if I’m not having breakouts. And usually I use a 1% BHA and switch off with an 8% AHA. But I like to use anti aging serums and a more hydrating moisturizer. But when my skin gets “angry” and starts popping up zits, I’ve got to go back to the bare basics to get it cleared up.

    For spot treatment, I use pure Tea Tree Oil by Aura Cacia and it is gone the next day. Most acne treatments or skincare consist of tea tree oil so it is no surprising. Also, dont touch, pick or put anything on your face. Drink lots of water and exfoliate 2-3x a week. Try using this mixture apple cider vinegar, green tea and tea tree oil as toners. My back cystic acne improved a lot.

    I have found the best defense in fighting my acne is exfoliation! I use Exuviance Rejuvenating Treatment Masque once a week. My skin tends to be on the dry side, and it is the best one I have found for not creating dry patches on my face. I also have been using less “harsh” acne toners/treatments and I find i have less breakouts due to this. If you ask me, regular exfoliation is the key to reducing breakouts!
