Cleansing your skin correctly is probably the singularly most important exercise you can do to keep your skin healthy. It’s not just about soap and water. As a matter of fact, using bar soap can damage your skin and cause breakouts.
We are so lucky to have a range of skincare products to keep our skin healthy and looking younger than our true ages.
I make sure I take advantage of all the products that have these essential nutrients and natural chemicals to promote good skin maintenance.
One of the key elements in facial cleaners is Glycolic Acid. For those of you wondering what Glycolic Acid is, it’s a colorless, translucent, crystalline compound, C2H4O3, that occurs in cane sugar, unripe grapes, and sugar beets and has numerous industrial uses.
This colorless, odorless, and hygroscopic crystalline solid is highly soluble in water. It is used in various skin care products. It has the smallest molecules in the group so is able to penetrate our skin deeply and easily, making it the most effective for treating fine lines, acne, blackheads, dullness, oiliness, etc.
This is why I use NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash every day. It’s one of the best on the market and I love the foaming action. It feels so amazing on my face.
It reacts with the top layer of skin, breaking it down by dissolving sebum and other substances that bind cells together. Using Glycolic Acid causes the dead skin cells to be sloughed away revealing smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin. It’s also a very effective acne treatment.
Using Glycolic Acid makes skin more sensitive to the sun so it’s very important to wear sunscreen whenever using any sort of AHA to avoid pigmentation and further damage.
Even if you don’t use products with Glycolic Acid you should be wearing sunscreen daily with at least an SPF of over 20 anyway!
If you are using bar soap to cleanse your skin, you can be doing a huge disservice to your skin and can cause the following problems.
- After-wash tightness (AWT)
- Damage to the barrier function of the skin
