Dear Ms. Wong
Thank you for your interest in Mario Badescu Skin Care. Each of the products that you have is meant for serving a specific anti acne purpose.
The Drying Lotion is a great spot treatment made with a blend of calamine and salicylic acid to dry up surfaced whitehead pimples overnight.
To use: Do not shake- Insert a q-tip to the bottom of the bottle then dab directly on top of surfaced whitehead pimple before bedtime and leave on overnight.
Buffering Lotion is a spot treatment for deeply rooted cystic blemishes-helps to calm inflammation and promote healing.
To use: Shake well then apply 1-2 drops on any deep cystic blemish using finger tip to apply on any deep cystic blemishes to promote healing.
Anti-Acne Serum is a 2% salicylic acid based gel that helps to keep acne at bay.
To use: Apply 3-4 drops on acne prone areas of the face before bedtime to gently exfoliate surface dull skin build up and to keep it smooth and clear
I am very interested in buying your Special Healing Powder, but I am afraid that the Sulfur in it will irritate my skin since I am using Benzoyl Peroxide. Can they both be used at the same time?...Read Response (asked by Maria C. of Newark, NJ)
If you are currently using topical nightly Benzoyl Peroxide, I would avoid using the Special Healing Powder at the same time. Benzoyl Peroxide calms inflammation and kills bacteria that cause pimples. It also dries out the skin by reducing the oil on your skins surface. Since the Sulfur based Special Healing Powder helps to fight acne causing bacteria as it absorbs excess oil output, the combination of the two may over dry and irritate your skin.
A family member told me about your rosacea products. I have tried everything and nothing works. ...Read Response (asked by Cathy C. of Deer Park, OH)
If you have been diagnosed with Rosacea, it is important to keep your regimen extremely simple since the skin can be very delicate. When selecting a skin care regimen, it is important to choose mild products to help visibly reduce redness, even out skin tone, and smooth overall skin texture. Consistent use will offer optimal skin care results. Our priority is to help you achieve and maintain healthy, radiant skin. We would recommend using the Cream Soap suggested for mild cleansing of delicate skin. Follow with the Chamomile Cleansing Lotion to instantly soothe dry, sensitive skin. Chamomile Extract is a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient that helps to calm skin immediately. The Control Cream is enriched with Balsam Peru, a tree bark extract that soothes and reduces redness and irritation on the skin. This protective cream may be used morning and night to effectively moisturize and to calm sensitive skin. Enriched with skin-soothing botanicals, use the Calma Mask 2-3 times a week for 15 minutes to alleviate irritation and redness. In areas of extreme inflammation, apply a thin layer of the Control Cream underneath the mask.
