Advanced 10% Exfoliating Pads FAQ
Do I have to use a BeautyRx starter exfoliant before using this product?
BeautyRx starter strength exfoliants are integral to getting the best results from your regimen. Starter strength products introduce your skin to effective glycolic exfoliation, allowing it to adjust to the treatment before using higher strengths. Think of it like going to the gym: you wouldn’t reach for the heavy weights first. Instead, start with something lighter that helps you build up to your goal. The same is true with the glycolics in the BeautyRx line, and the perfect way to start is with The Progressive Peel.
Why do you recommend starting with The Progressive Peel?
The Progressive Peel is the optimal way to take advantage of BeautyRx exfoliants. It includes the entire range of exfoliants, and acclimates your skin to maximum glycolic exfoliation, without irritation.
Do I have to use this product with another BeautyRx exfoliant?
While the Advanced 10% Exfoliating Pads offer amazing results on their own, they offer maximum exfoliation when used in conjunction with other BeautyRx exfoliants and in the progressive technique of The Progressive Peel.
