Happy Thanksgiving weekend, everyone! As I sit here, I still have to go grocery shopping (and I know the store will be an absolute zoo), and lots of prep work to do. Stuffing ingredients to chop up, punch stuff to buy, salad dressing to make…. Of course, the big day of cooking will be Sunday and it’s allll looming ahead of me.
But on to happier topics. Like the fact that my skin is looking great these days thanks to NeoStrata’s new Acne Clear line which is a definite winner thanks to the combo of Salicylic and Glycolic acids used in the routine of products.
Why two different acids, you ask? The Glycolic acid exfoliates the surface of the skin, while the Salicylic Acid goes inside pores and exfoliates from the inside. Salicylic acid will help clear up existing break outs but the Glycolic Acid keeps skin clear.
Points to note:
• Non-irritating, non-comedogenic, paraben-free
• Effective for both teens and adult acne break-outs
• For all skin types
•The Acne Clear Clarifying Gel Cleanser is the only cleanser within the dermocosmetic section with a NPN authorization from Health Canada
• All three products have verified clinical claims by the Dermatology Review Panel
I will say this: initially, I didn’t feel any tingling or irritation when I used the system, but after about three days where was a slight burning sensation when I used the toner so I had to cut back to using it every other day. That said, the system totally works at exfoliating your skin and makes it more smooth. It nipped a couple of potential break-outs in the bud, and has nicely cleared some small bumps.
If you like peels and salicylic acid or glycolic acid toners and the like, then Neostrata is the absolute best brand to go to and easily available at Shoppers Drug Mart. Their products worked and I’ve used lots of them myself.
