Wash Strategically:

FTT Skin Clinics - Foaming Wash - Glycolic Acid - Salicylic Acid
FTT Signature Foaming Wash

Cleanse your face morning, evening, and post-exercise without harsh scrubbing. Opt for a gentle, foaming face wash to avoid triggering excessive oil production. To deal with oily skin, we recommend our Signature FTT Foaming Wash. Gently massage one pump onto damp skin and leave for a few minutes for maximum results, before rinsing with warm water. Gentle enough to use twice daily. Reveal Foaming Wash will help increase cell renewal and prepare your skin for other products in the FTT Skin Clinics skincare collection. The natural properties of Aloe Vera will calm and protect your skin.

Smart Product Choices:

Select “oil-free” and “noncomedogenic” skincare products to prevent clogged pores. Steer clear of oil-based or alcohol-based cleansers that may irritate your skin.

Prioritize sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to prevent sun damage. Avoid fragrances or oils in sunscreens to prevent acne breakouts that may be resulting from excessive oil.

Makeup Matters:

We use scientifically proven ingredients in our advanced comprehensive skin care to bring out the best results in your skin. It contains high levels of Vitamin C to help prevent wrinkles, dark spots and promotes the production of collagen.
