Cleansing is the first and most important stage in any skin care regimen. Without clean, clear skin, the condition of the skin surface and the pores can lead to serious problems that will affect the appearance and health of the skin tissues. MD Formulations Toners/Clarifiers Products are designed to purify the skin beyond what even normal cleansers can achieve. Throughout the day, and even at night, the skin is subjected to airborne particles and chemicals, dirt and debris transferred by touch, excess oils and sebum, old skin cells and even previous layers of cosmetics. As this matter accumulates, the skin and pores begin to react, sometimes with breakouts, dermatitis or inflammation caused by bacterial infection.
MD Formulations Toners/Clarifiers Products can help prevent these reactions by gently but effectively ridding your skin of this unwanted build-up. Whether because of a particular skin type or an especially challenging environment, there are times when you need an extra stage of clarifying. MD Formulations Toners/Clarifiers Products should not be used in the place of regular cleansers, but as an added step to purify your skin.

Additional MD Formulations Products Information
Not only does cleansing the skin improve comfort and appearance, but it also prepares the skin to more easily and readily accept subsequent steps in a skin care program. While cleansers are a necessary first step, sometimes a particular skin types or a challenging environment cause a particularly heavy deposit of debris for form on the skin. In these situations, MD Formulations Toners/Clarifiers Products can provide a useful follow-up stage in the regimen. As the first company to license a worldwide patent on glycolic acid, MD Formulations has explored the use of this ingredient to improve the tone of skin, clarify pores and clear blemishes. Glycolic acid encourages exfoliation to improve skin cell turnover. This process helps to refine the appearance of enlarged pores, smooth the skin structure and managed blemishes. The new, fresh skin cells which are freed from debris and residue are also able to better absorb other skin care products, such as moisturizers and antioxidants. As with all the MD Formulations products, this line of toners and clarifiers balances the pH of its formulas to the skin to reduce the risk of irritation.
As a second-stage purifier and toner, MD Formulations Glycol Lotion provides an additional support to – not a substitute for – cleansers. With a pH 4.4 level, it is ideal for oily skin, although it can be used on all skin types. Apply once or twice a day, after cleansing. Then, use your favorite MD Formulations moisturizer and any other skin care products that is part of your usual regimen.
