USAGE

 

Q:  How should I use this product?
A:   Use as directed on the package. Since this is a medicated acne-treatment moisturizer, be sure not to use too much at once as it may cause irritation or excessive drying. Please follow the below directions:
  • Clean your skin thoroughly before applying this product. For best results, use OXY® Total Care® Creamy Facial Cleanser.
  • Use a dime-sized amount to cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to two times daily
  • Because excessive drying of the skin may occur, start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor
  • If bothersome dryness or peeling occurs, reduce application to once a day or every other day.
  • If going outside, apply sunscreen after using this product. If irritation or sensitivity develops, stop use of both products and ask a doctor.
  • Once the moisturizer has absorbed into your skin, follow with a thin application of OXY® Total Care® Vitamin C Serum with hyaluronic acid for clear, healthy skin that glows.
  • Sensitivity Test for a New User. Apply product sparingly to one or two small affected areas during the first 3 days.  If no discomfort occurs, follow the directions stated above.
                                
Q:  How often should I apply this product?
A:   We recommend you start with one application daily, then gradually increase to two or three times daily if needed or as directed by a doctor.
 
Q:  Who can use this product?
A:   OXY® Total Care® is designed for all skin types and is perfect for treating mild-to-moderate acne at all ages.
 
Q: Will this product make my face more oily if I have oily or combination skin?
A: No. OXY® Total Care® Clarifying Moisturizer is an oil-free, fast-absorbing facial lotion that is clinically proven to eliminate acne, to reduce facial oiliness, and to improve skin moisturization in just 4 weeks[1].  It is designed to control the oil on your face as it moisturizes, making it the ideal way to keep your skin soft and smooth without an oily shine.
 
Q: Can I use this product if I have dry or sensitive skin?
A: Yes. OXY® Total Care® Clarifying Moisturizer is specially designed to moisturize and treat dry and sensitive skin. It is formulated to keep hydrating your dry skin with hyaluronic acid after application as it gently treats acne and helps prevent future breakouts.
 
It does, however, have benzoyl peroxide as an active ingredient. If you are new to this product and could be sensitive to its ingredients, apply product sparingly to one or two small affected areas during the first 3 days. If no discomfort occurs, follow the directions on the package as usual. If you experience any irritation, please reduce or discontinue use.
 
Q: Do I have to use the other OXY® Total Care® products with this one?
A:  No. Each OXY® Total Care® product can be used alone, with other OXY® acne products, or with other products in your skincare routine today. However, for best results we recommend applying the OXY® Total Care® Clarifying Moisturizer after washing your face with OXY® Total Care® Creamy Cleanser. You can use the OXY® Total Care® Vitamin C Serum either before or after the OXY® Total Care® Clarifying Moisturizer, depending on if you prefer a glowing finish or matte finish on your skin. If you experience any irritation, please reduce or discontinue use.
 
We recommend waiting until the OXY® Total Care® Clarifying Moisturizer has fully absorbed into your skin before applying the OXY® Total Care® Vitamin C Serum for best results.
 
Q:  Can this be used with my other acne products?
A:  Yes, however skin irritation and dryness is more likely to occur.  If irritation occurs, use only one topical acne medication at a time.
 
Q: Do I use the OXY® Total Care® Clarifying Moisturizer before or after the OXY® Total Care® Vitamin C Serum?
A: That depends on your personal preference. Using the Clarifying Moisturizer first followed by the Vitamin C Serum will leave your skin with a healthy glow. However, if you prefer, you can use the Clarifying Moisturizer as the last step on top for a more matte finish.
