  • I noticed that Serious Action Skin Astringent is available in three strengths, how do I decide which is best for me?
    GlyMed Plus Serious Action Acne Management is a very effective line for treating acne. Therefore, even the 2% can be very strong for some individuals. We recommend you start with 2% and if necessary, progress to 5%. The 10% can be used on areas with thicker skin like the back.


  • Is it always necessary to use an astringent daily?
    Serious Action Skin Astringents are incorporated in a daily regimen for oily and acneic skin. Salicylic acid is an effective ingredient in controlling oil. Since it is the oil that feeds the bacteria present in acne, controlling oil will have an effect on controlling acne.


  • Is this product safe for pregnant or breastfeeding mums?
    No, salicylic acid is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers unless prescribed by a Physician.
