Older skin is not necessarily acne-free. As unfair as it may seem, acne is not always left behind when a person reaches adulthood. When breakouts continue into adulthood, treatment methods have to change since adult skin often does not react well to the same products used on younger skin. For that reason, MD Formulations Acne Treatments Products are designed to treat blemish-prone adult skin in a way that best suits the particular needs of older skin.
p>The same root difficulties still hold true – overproduction of sebum (the oil and wax secretions produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin), clogged pores and bacteria feeding off the sebum and dead skin cells – but the treatment has to take skin differences into account. MD Formulations Acne Treatments Products work to clear the skin, purify the pores and help the skin heal from the irritation and inflammation caused by breakouts, but without causing dryness and flaking that can be caused by harsh treatment. The clinically proven ingredients in the series of MD Formulations Acne Treatments Products are also designed to help prevent future breakouts.

Additional MD Formulations Products Information
Blemish-prone adult skin has to be treated with care to avoid causing dryness and irritation. MD Formulations Acne Treatments Products have been designed and clinically tested to provide treatment that is tailored to the special needs of older skin. When integrated into a regular skin care regimen, the use of these products can minimize the severity of breakouts and help prevent the frequency of future blemishes.
The lightweight oil-free formula of MD Formulations Vit-A-Plus Skin Clearing Complex includes alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), BHA and retinol (vitamin A). Applied twice daily after a careful cleansing, the gel helps to eliminate shine and diminish the appearance of enlarged pores and blemishes. Clinical studies have shown that this product results in up to a 55% improvement in skin clarity and smoothness.
Formulated to be absorbed quickly and therefore minimize skin dryness and irritation, MD Formulations Benzoyl Peroxide 10 helps to treat and heal acne blemishes. The 10% concentration of benzoyl peroxide acts as a peeling agent, helping cell turnover, clearing pores and reducing the bacterial concentration on the skin. The formula has a pH 4.25, to closely match the naturally slightly acidic level of skin.
The 5% salicylic acid in MD Formulations Glycare Acne Gel helps to gently exfoliate skin cells. This process refines and smoothes the skin surface, allowing new, healthy skin cells to replace skin damaged by breakouts. When applied after gentle cleansing, the lightweight formula helps to prevent future blemishes. This gel is dermatologist tested and is non-comedogenic, allergy tested and fragrance free.
