There are multiple factors that lead to breakouts, so the most effective treatments should address all of them. The formulas of Glytone Acne Treatment Products are designed to counteract the entire range of causes of this condition, in order to provide fast and effective treatment. Acne develops when an excess of oils and other detritus (such as old, dead skin cells, dirt picked up by contact and particles of air pollution) clog pores. When bacteria is present, especially Propionibacterium acnes, breakouts begins to develop. In treating these causes, Glytone Acne Treatment Products are formulated to clear away excess oils and contaminations and neutralize bacteria, while still being as gentle as possible.
When working to clear skin and unpack pores, care must be taken not to disrupt the natural layer of sebum which helps form the acid mantle on the skin's surface. This protective layer guards the skin from other bacterial infections and needs to be left intact. In addition, Glytone Acne Treatment Products provide ingredients which soothe and heal the skin, helping to reduce redness and minimize the scarring caused by severe acne.

Additional Glytone Products Information
When treating breakouts, the problem must be approached holistically; each of the contributing cause and all of the symptoms should be treated together. The formulas of Glytone Acne Treatment Products are designed to effective, but gently, clear the skin of excess oils and contaminants, unclog pores and suppress bacteria, while providing soothing, healing and protective benefits.
Using the most direct treatment for acne, Glytone Acne Gel provides a 10% concentration of benzoyl peroxide for control of surface oil and the suppression of P. acnes, the bacteria that is a contributing factor to acne breakouts. Since benzoyl peroxide can cause skin dryness, treatment should begin with one application a day, with a gradual increase in the number of treatments as needed and tolerated.
Using a micronized 5% concentration of benzoyl peroxide plus a 1% concentration of polyolprepolymer in a liquid matrix, the unique patent-pending formula of Glytone Acne 3P Gel provides effective treatment of acne while providing protection against irritation. The time-extended delivery is less drying than a higher concentration of benzoyl peroxide, but application should still begin with a single treatment once a day before increasing the frequency to determine skin toleration.
Combining active treatment with a cosmetic cover, Glytone Flesh Tinted Acne Lotion contains a 8% concentration of sulfur and 2% resorcinol to control oil and neutralize bacteria. The tinted texture helps to discreetly cover the unsightly blemishes while the active medication goes to work. As with the other acne treatments, begin with a single application per day, increasing applications as needed and tolerated.
