HOW EXFOLIATING SAVES YOU FROM SKIN PROBLEMS
Most of us like to bask ourselves in the glow of the sun. And generally we love sunny days. That’s why we get thrilled at the idea of summer and the road trips and vacations that come along with it. With the sun on the sky, we have this feeling that we can do anything, go everywhere, and celebrate life and being alive.

But as much as we love the sun, we have to keep in mind that it can do us as much harm as it does us good. Sun damage to your skin can result in the development of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as discolouration and textural changes. These cosmetic effects of sun damage can make your skin look prematurely aged and visibly damaged. In the short term, too much sun will cause a burn, sunburn, and in the longer term, chronic exposure to the sun will cause photoaging (“photo” – sunlight; “aging” – deterioration).
This is where exfoliation comes in the picture. Exfoliation is one effective way to protect your skin from photoaging and other harmful effects of the sun. Exfoliating increases cell turnover to reveal newer, healthier skin cells, plus it decreases blackheads, minimizes hyperpigmentation and fine lines, and imparts an all-over healthy glow. It also helps with hydration. As you increase your exfoliation, you are tricking the skin into acting young again. A special type of exfoliant that works particularly well within the deeper layers of the skin to jump start tired, aging cells is the ingredient glycolic acid that provides a photoprotective effect to skin. And this exfoliant is found in Neostrata Exfoliating lotion.
This light, extra-strength, multi-purpose lotion is designed for people who prefer a lightweight formulation and is designed to help correct the visible signs of photoaging, even out and brighten skin tone, and improve overall skin texture on the face and body.
