Insider Tip: Using Buffering Lotion for Cystic Acne

There are very few non-prescription cystic acne treatments out there. In fact, the Buffering Lotion is a pretty unique product. Its lightweight consistency helps allow for the product’s active ingredient (sulfur) to be absorbed into the skin. And if you have cystic acne, you know how important it is to get to the root of the problem.

Here’s our extra tip for using the Buffering Lotion—for when you need to get aggressive with cystic acne:

Apply the Buffering Lotion as usual (using a clean fingertip) to the affected area and then apply a thin layer of Drying Mask over it. Rinse after 15 minutes and then reapply the Buffering Lotion.
