The bottle of drying lotion I bought about 1 year ago is losing its hydration. There is still about 1/3 of a bottle of pink stuff on the bottom, but most of the liquid is gone. Can I rehydrate it and if so how? I love this product. Thank you....Read Response (asked by M. Babb)
Thank you for your interest in Mario Badescu Skin Care. The life span of the .Drying Lotion all depends on the frequency of use. When the liquid portion of the product is gone, it is an indication to purchase a new one. I would recommend applying the solution with q-tips that have very minimal cotton on the head. After you insert the q-tip into the bottle, gently tap the q-tip against the interior rim to squeeze out any excess liquid. Please do not add any liquid and discard the current bottle

I have a question regarding acne scarring. I am a 38 yr old female. When I was young I had an acne problem. I still get an ocassional outbreak but for the most part my face is pimple free. I was taking an antibiotic for sometime but stopped taking it when I got pregnant. As I am getting older and now with a 4 month old I feel as if my scarring is more noticeable. I was having dermabrasion done monthly for about 2 yrs however it did not appear to make much of a difference. Is there anything I can do to lessen the appearance of acne scarring?...Read Response (asked by M. Babb)
If you experience some discoloration, I would first recommend using a daily SPF for your skin such as the Aloe Moisturizer (SPF-15). Using gently AHA’s such as fruit extracts and glycolic acid will help to gently even out your skin tone. Hyper-pigmention and discoloration may take a long time to even out. I would strongly recommend using a daily SPF such as the Oil Free Moisturizer (SPF-17) or higher to hydrate and protect your skin for further discoloration. Then I would consider using the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 2-3 times a week at night only to help promote gentle exfoliation as it evens out skin tone. Do not over use this product as it may over dry the skin, otherwise this deep cleansing treatment will be very effective for lessening the appearance of old acne scars. Lastly, you could use the Whitening Mask 2-3 times a week for 10 minutes to help brighten the skin and even out overall skin tone as it discourages further discoloration.
I am 33 years old and I have adult acne that I am trying to control while at the same time fighting fine lines/wrinkles under my eyes and forehead. My acne has been a problem for over 10 years now (whiteheads, blackheads, and cystic acne around my chin area). I love the Buffering Lotion but I want to try a cleanser, eye cream, and a moisturizer. Not sure what to use. ...Read Response (asked by Jami C. of Chesterfield, MO)
Adult acne is a very common problem. Common causes may be related to hormonal imbalances, or stress causing oil glands to overcompensate. Acne occurs when the pores of the skin become clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. Excess oil secretions build up beneath the blocked pore, providing a perfect environment for skin bacteria. The best means to prevent acne is to maintain a proper skin care regimen. It is also important to make sure that you are not picking of squeezing any of the blemishes. It can spread the bacteria and cause unwanted scarring in the process. The Acne Facial Cleanser which contains 2% Salicylic Acid will help to encourage the sloughing of surface dead skin cells. This purifying cleanser will remove dirt and oil while preventing clogged pores and breakouts. Follow with the Special Cucumber Lotion, an anti-bacterial solution that will help to disinfect skin and discourage acne flare-ups. Follow with the Oil Free Moisturizer (SPF-17) to keep skin well hydrated and protected. Using a daily SPF will prevent the darker acne scars from further discoloration. Use the Drying Mask 2-3 times a week to combat blemishes and impurities. Formulated for acne prone skin, this Sulfur based mask will help to absorb excess oil as it combats blemishes and impurities. Alternate twice a week with the Healing & Soothing Mask which contains Balsam Peru, a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient that relieves acne related redness and irritation. For oily, dull, congested skin, use the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 2-3 times a week instead of the Acne Facial Cleanser. Glycolic Acid helps to break down dead skin build-up from the skins surface, reduce minor acne discoloration and leave skin radiant and smooth. Applying a thin layer of the Anti-Acne Serum (New) which contains 2% Salicylic Acid will help hydrate your skin in addition to gently exfoliating surface dead skin while you sleep. This mild night time treatment will keep your skin feeling balanced as it prevents future blemishes. The Drying Lotion will dry up surfaced whiteheads overnight. The Buffering Lotion is a liquid antiseptic solution that will help to heal deep cystic hormonal blemishes.
