Step 1: Id Skin-Buffing Pumice + Salicylic Facial Cleanser.
2x-a-day, massage a small amount onto damp skin. Rinse well with water. Do not apply pressure or rub vigorously——a gentle massage is all you need. Do not scrub any one area for longer than 1 to 2 seconds at a time.
Step 2: Id Clarifying + Firming Toner.
Moisten (do not soak) cotton applicator with Toner. Swipe gently over face, neck + chest. Avoid mucosal (wet) areas of eyes, nostrils + mouth.
Daytime: Follow with Armada Sun + Light Screen every day, whether indoors or outdoors + whether or not this Toner has been applied on a given day.
IMPORTANT: Start using 2x-a-week only. Very slowly increase to 3x-a-week, then 1x-every-other-day, etc. until you achieve 2x-a-day usage (no earlier than week 8 of therapy). DO NOT RUSH. Visit our Skintelligencenter for an Application Frequency Chart.
1ST-TIMERS: Some first-time users of Id may experience an initial reaction of a slight redness or mild stinging, or an initial acne breakout (if your pores have not been deep cleaned at this level, Id’s first action is to bring existing pore cloggers to the surface; with continued, proper use and prevention, your pores’ deeper cleaned state is maintained).
With correct use—slowly increasing application frequency, using hypoallergenic support products, and following all instructions carefully—this initial reaction quickly disappears, the pores’ deeper-cleaned state is maintained, and the appearance of acne is controlled. If it does occur, stop use for one week, and restart therapy at the beginning, with 2x-a-week applications.
Sunburn Warning: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sun-screen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
Step 3: Id Anti-Acne, Anti-Aging Face, Chest, Back + Body Exfoliating Lotion
To Use: Pump or pour a pea-sized amount + massage over face, neck, chest + hands. Avoid mucosal (wet) areas of eyes, nostrils + mouth. Daytime: Follow with Armada Sun + Light Screen every day, whether indoors or outdoors + whether or not this Lotion has been applied on a given day.
If your acne is very large, inflamed or widespread, consult a dermatologist before pursuing any topical skin care.
Before using any product, test a tiny amount of it on skin (we omit allergens, but you may be sensitive to an ingredient that isn't an allergen).
Introduce new products one at a time, with at least 3 days in between to make sure you are not allergic.
Do not store in extreme temperatures, or in direct sunlight.
Do not (re)introduce removed portions of product, water or other substances into product.
UV exposure from the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, premature skin aging and other skin damage. It is important to decrease UV exposure by limiting time in the sun, wearing protective clothing, and using a sunscreen.
UV rays from the sun are made of UVB + UVA. It is important to protect against both UVB + UVA rays to prevent sunburn and other skin damage.
As much as possible, practice sun avoidance particularly for children and the photosensitive.
As with all things skin, consult your dermatologist.
For external use only on specified areas as directed.
Stop use + consult your doctor in the unlikely event of discomfort or sensitivity.
If contact with eyes occurs, flush out with plenty of water. Keep out of reach of children. While safe for its intended use, ingesting large amounts of this product - as unattended children may do - is potentially harmful. If large quantities of this product have been ingested, get medical help right away.

I'm a man and new to skin care ... what should I use? This may surprise you, but skin is fundamentally skin. All skin ... across genders, races, and ages ... may look different, but skin is fundamentally the same at the cellular level (when looked at under a microscope, skin cells are skin cells). Read More
Depending on the treatment, many people can start anti-acne therapy at a fairly young age—as early as age 9 for prophylactic care and if guided by a dermatologist. Read More
Skin care that works on the skin's surface is not a bad thing. Superficial moisturizers can help skin feel softer and more comfortable. Physical sunscreens are not absorbed by the skin and are therefore ideal for infants and adults who are sensitive to chemical sunscreens. And it is always advisable to use products that can be washed off easily, leaving no potentially irritating or pore-clogging residue. But for therapy, superficial care can sometimes be just that: shallow. For significant changes to be visible on the skin's surface, they have to occur at the cellular level. Surface changes occur beneath the surface. Read More
