The Stepwise System

Close-Up of Woman's Skin

Under our Stepwise System, Glycolic acid is safe enough to use every day.

The use of a glycolic acid cream is vital for youthful and clear-looking skin; however, it must be used with caution, and introduced into the skin gradually. As a result, Dr. Garnis-Jones has designed Puriste products around a stepwise program that will slowly and safely introduce the acids into your skin regimen. Feel at ease while you achieve restored and rejuvenated skin.


1| 2.5% Glycolic Acid Day Cream

The Puriste 2.5% Glycolic Acid Day Cream is advised for starter users with normal to sensitive skin for day protection, followed by Puriste 5% Glycolic Acid Cream. The result after regular use is cellular reconstruction, improvement in colour and skin tone, and beginning signs of diminished fine lines, wrinkles, and acne blemishes.

2| 5% Glycolic Acid Cream

After completing step one, Puriste 5% Glycolic Acid Cream is best used in the morning OR morning and night after cleansing the facial and neck area. After a few weeks, it is advised to start implementing the Puriste 8% Glycolic Acid Night Cream as your night cream to reach optimal results. After regular use, you will witness improved skin texture, tone, overall restored youthfulness, and continued improvement in appearance of acne.

Note: For people with less sensitive skin, Puriste 5% Glycolic Acid Day Cream can be used as step one in the glycolic acid system.


3| 8% Glycolic Acid Night Cream

The Puriste 8% Glycolic Acid Night Cream is the final and most optimal step in our stepwise system. It can be used at night in conjunction with the 5% Glycolic Acid Cream in the day or with any other Puriste formula to achieve maximum results.
