3 Functions Of Skincare Treatment Pads 

We Know The Mother Of All Treatment Pads

Anyone who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s and had any kind of acne – knows treatment pads!  The universal go-to for acne besides Sea Breeze was Stridex pads!  Both Jenni and I are pro’s at understanding acne and how it can impact a person.  We also know every over the counter product that is out there and can attest that they never seem to work.

So many suffering with teen acne, look for solutions on line or in drug stores, usually with disastrous outcomes.  If you’re looking to help your clients with acne, you need to read this month’s Advice From Our Experts.  Jenna Kent wrote, The L+A Quick Reference Guide to Acne.    She outlines causes, foods to avoid, ingredients to use and treatments to offer.

Great For All Year Round

There is no one best time to use treatment pads, they’re great year round!  In fact, Repêchage included their Hydra Refine Astringent Pads in our 15 Favorite Products For Spring  this year. 

They’re great for summer to, Global Beauty Private Label Skincare was in our Virtual Skincare Festival and fell in love with their Exfoliating Pads, which they included as 1 of our 15 Favorite products for Summer! 

I obviously love the Hydra Refine Astringent Pads for after a workout.  

5 Treatment Pads We Love + The 3 Main Uses We See

3 Main Uses Of Treatment Pads

Exfoliation

You had me at, “Peel off my skin!” We found that several brands are using the pads to deliver a cocktail of acids to exfoliate the skin.  Sesha Skincare’s Age Defying Resurfacing Pads  featuring Lactic and Salicylic acids with a wealth of antioxidants and hydrators. Global Beauty Private Label’s Exfoliating Pads have 3 acids and botanical brighteners in this effective and gentle treatment pad. 

Astringent + Toning

HydroPeptide’s Clarying Toner Pads offer clean, clear skin, in these pore-refining treatment pads.  Repêchage’s Hydra Refine Astringent Pads have a refreshing Lemongrass fragrance and are a pleasure to use when you want to refresh and tone. 

Anti-Aging Serum

Give skin a peptide boost that’s derived from growth factors with ClearChoice’s DNA Treatment Pads

DNA Treatment Pads - ClearChoice

Age Defying Resurfacing Pads - Sesha Skincare

An easy to use presoaked pad that not only gently exfoliates but also hydrates the skin’s surface. The acid solution contains 8% of Lactic acid / AHA and  2% Salicylic Acid/BHA. Lactic Acid is known to be gentle in comparison with other acids and typically does not cause as much irritation to the skin.

Salicylic Acid/ BHA is another gently acid that is safe, effective treatment for mild acne, oily skin, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

These two acids in combination with a wealth of antioxidants and hydrators are infused into a single use pad to help stimulate cell turnover rate, collagen production and reduce fine lines without over-drying the skin.

Easy + Convenient

When it comes to a skin care home care routine, sometimes a boy just wants a short cut.  There have been a few occasions where I just don’t feel like washing my face at night.  Bippity Boppity Boop – pull out my Astringent Toner Pads and whisk away that day’s dirt and debris.  STOP JUDGING ME!  Then I swipe my Exfoliating Pad across my face for deep dive that exfoliation.  A quick swipe of the DNA for a serum, add a touch of facial oil and she’s off to bed!

Then there are those beach and pool days (trust they’ll be back).  Astringent Toner pads are great to de-sunscreen your face after you leave.  Also love them for after a workout. 

The treatment pads are also amazing for travel, trust, those days will be back too!  

Treatment Pads …. all the cool kids are doing it!
