Clear Skin Ultra Gel 1.7oz. Free Shipping USA+CANADA

Clear Skin Ultra Gel is a Glycolic and Lactic acid (AHA's) blend with Betaine Salicylates (BHA). Great for oilier combination skin and acne skin. Exfoliation also helps make large pores appear smaller.

Please review the Blue Turtle Spa video ‘Exfoliation: ­ Why? Which one?’.

I like a combination of Alpha and Beta hydroxy acids for most skins that experience blemishes because most of us have combination skins. This exfoliant works well for adult acne as well as teen acne. The Beta Glucans in this product also help the skin repair itself so they are a great compliment to the exfoliating aspects of AHA and BHA.

This 5% glycolic, 5% lactic and 2% betaine salicylate is at a 3.9pH so just a bit lower than the pH of your skin (skin is typically between 4.5pH and 5.8pH). It will tingle on the skin when first applied. Some people may feel it 'sting' or even 'itch'. These are natural reactions to an acid of this type. Some people hardly feel anything - but never fear - it is still working. It is a great exfoliant for most skin. Do not use it on skin that gets red easily, or is irritated, or is inflamed for any condition other than acne.

For an acid to work well it is applied after cleansing, once the skin has been toweled dry, and left on for 3 to 5 minutes (it is critical that you don't neutralize it too soon - it needs time to work). Typically it self neutralizes into the pH of your skin so generally it does not need to be removed. Once you apply a hydration gel or moisturizer on top of it, those products will neutralize any acid that is still active. If in doubt, rinse it off with cool water after a minimum of 3 minutes.

Sometimes the skin is more sensitive than other times (during menstrual cycles, illness, when diet changes, with certain medications etc) so if it feels unbearable on your skin, just rinse with cool water to neutralize it.

Strong skin can use it every evening to exfoliate (and some skin conditions may require that you use it morning and evening each day until the condition improves), less strong skin maybe 2 to 3 times per week. I feel it is essential to consult with me before embarking on a path of exfoliating with Age Limit.

You can apply on face, neck and chest, and even hands and arms that show a lot of sun damage. Do not put it too close to the eyes - it is an acid after all and will definitely sting and irritate the eyes. If you mess up and get some in the eyes, then immediately bathe the eyes in cool water to neutralize the acid. You may need to see your doctor if irritation persists.

The manufacturer describes it as follows: Reveal fresh, clear, healthy-looking skin In days. Minimize imperfections associated with acne-prone skin with this exclusive complex of clinically-proven Plant extracts and the next generation in AHAs - the patented AHAminoPlex™ molecule, developed by the pioneers of AHA skin therapy. Produced via a unique bonding process that attaches arginine, a naturally-derived amino acid, to the pure glycolic acid molecule, AHAminoPlex prolongs glycolic delivery into skin over a period of eight to sixteen minutes. This controlled delivery system avoids the severe spike of irritation that occurs within seconds of applying simple glycolic acid. Only AHAminoPlex's controlled delivery allows skin to tolerate the acid with little-to-no sensations of irritation - including stinging, burning and redness - even on the first use (some sensitive skin may experience passive discomfort during the first few applications). The AHAminoPlex molecule is accompanied by lactic acid attached to a dedicated delivery vehicle. Together, these ingredients achieve a 10% AHA level for safe and efficient AHA home care.  Researchers have linked lipase to the heightened inflammation often seen in moderate and severe acne-prone skin. Natural antibiotics preserve skin's ecosystem, helping to maintain the balance of healthy flora on skin's surface and in pores. A reduction in oil production and other imperfections is also seen. In a four week consumer test, 4 out of 5 people who used this product reported clearing of imperfections, decreased redness, increased hydration and an improvement in skin clarity and tone within several days to two weeks. This remarkable serum is a self-preserving formula that relies on glycolic and lactic acids combined with two hydrators to provide stability and protect from microbial contamination for a year or longer.
