Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash
In order to have healthy, glowing, younger looking skin, your face needs to be very clean. If you do not have an excellent facial cleanser, it will be difficult to clean your skin properly. You need to be sure that your pores are not clogged with dirt and excess oils. You will want a cleanser that exfoliates the layer of dead skin cells that are preventing fresh new skin cells from turning over.
It can be hard to find the correct facial cleanser if your skin is prone to acne breakouts and also want to achieve anti-aging results. Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash will thoroughly cleanse your adult skin without leaving it dry or feeling excessively taut. Neostrata Glycolic cleanser will leave your face with a healthy glow and begin the process of evening out your skin tone which can become uneven over the years mainly due to sun exposure.
Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash consists of both glycolic and lactobionic acids, both alpha hydroxyl acids. Alpha hydroxyl acids can work wonders on the skin, unclogging pores, exfoliating dead skin cells and giving back a healthy, youthful glow to the skin. However, alpha hydroxyl acids such as glycolic and lactobionic acids can irritate, swell, itch and/or sting the skin of some people. The Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash cleanser is formulated using an amphoteric system for just this reason. The amphoteric alpha hydroxyl acid complex used in Neostrata Glycolic is made by providing a slow release of the free alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA). This allows for a slower and gentler skin penetration of the AHA with no adverse effects. The risk of irritation is greatly reduced using this amphoteric system, making Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash unique in its ability to be used by a wider variety of consumers.
Neostrata Foaming Glycolic Wash, because of its use of the amphoteric system, contains a higher percentage of glycolic acid than most other washes, at 18% compared to some at 15% or less. It also contains 2% of lactobionic acid. What exactly do glycolic and lactobionic acids do?
Glycolic acid is derived from natural sugars and works to exfoliate the dead skin cells in order to generate new cell production. Glycolic acid works so well because it can easily penetrate the skin’s outer surface and get in deep to do its job. It can minimize wrinkles, reduce acne scarring, even out hyperpigmentation and improve other skin conditions in addition to making aging skin appear younger and fresher.
Lactobionic acid helps to prevent swelling, as it works as an antioxidant. It also works to exfoliate and smooth the skin’s surface in addition to evening out skin pigmentation issues as it can also lighten the skin where needed.
