One of the fun things about blogging is getting the opportunity to try new products I might not discover on my own, and as an extra bonus I get to share them with you.
Today I have another product I’ve been testing out that I want to share with you: NeoStrata.
Neostrata products are widely popular and highly recommended by dermatologists in various parts of the globe. What makes this product popular among dermatologists and surgeons is that it features a potent yet clinically proven safe AHA concentration in the product itself.
While we all want young and flawless looking skin, as we age, we experience having wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging that start to appear on our face. As years pass by, the quality of our skin simply starts to diminish. At 48, I might not be able to avoid aging, but at least I can reduce the signs of aging.
I was very excited to try NeoStrata’s products. Although I’m close to 50, this is my first time using a product that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). Yes, it’s true. Luckily I did not experience any peeling or tingling sensation. I guess these products have a high enough level of AHAs to cause the skin to turnover without irritating it.
NeoStrata Skin Active Dermal Replenishment
It’s deeply hydrating without a heavy feeling. At my age I need all the hydration I can get. I have been using this cream for almost three weeks now. I apply it in the evening (one pump is enough for the entire face) after cleansing my face with olive oil. It smells a bit like cucumber and it gives my face a nice “glow”. My skin also looks more even-toned.
NeoStrata Skin Active Triple Firming Neck Cream
This is my very first time using a neck cream. I love that the cream has a gentle exfoliant that helps reduce the appearance of uneven pigment and age spots that often appear in the décolletage. I have already noticed an improvement; My neck looks better after only three weeks. I’m excited to see more results in the following weeks.
Again, the product is very hydrating without a greasy feeling or heavy scent. I apply it in the morning and evening. One small pump is plenty for the entire neck. I even apply it to the top of my hands where I noticed some hyperpigmentation. Don’t forget to apply sunblock to your neck.
I use this serum twice a week as it helps enhance exfoliation. One pump covers my entire face. It does not irritate my face and leaves it soft and hydrated.
I did some research and learned that glycolic acid is the gold standard in AHAs. It is the most researched acid and has the best track record of impressive results for all ages and all skin types.
According to skin care experts, glycolic acid is special because of its size and ability to penetrate the uppermost layers of built-up skin to reveal the better-looking skin hiding beneath.
We are not able to avoid aging but keeping the skin looking younger longer is all about prevention ( inside and outside.) The 40’s are a good time to introduce potent formulas to visibly slow down aging skin. NeoStrata’s smoothing ingredients like peptides and acids will help boost cell metabolism, plump skin and stimulate new collagen.
