You know that old saying: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Well when it comes to finding a fabulous skincare product that works for us, we think we don't need to give other products a try. If we don't, we could honestly be missing out on some great scientific advances. Our skincare needs to change as we age. Our hormones, stress, environment, diet, as well as other factors, help contribute to the signs of aging skin.
I am not willing to sit back and accept the inevitable signs of aging, are you? By using the right anti-aging products we can take a few years off our faces. One secret to looking younger...glycolic peels. They work by removing the damaged top layers of the skin. Chemical peels are costly, and can range from $150-$300. But you can achieve the same expensive in-office results at home for less. How?
Last month Manhatten Dermatologist Dr Craig Austin, announced the launch of his brand new line, AB SKINCARE. This skincare was created as a convenient and effective alternative to in-office glycolic peels and cosmetic procedures. This brand new skincare line utilizes the benefits of pure naturally-based glycolic acid, that will deliver the same professional results as an in-office glycolic peel. Glycolic acid is generally used as a natural skin exfoliant and moisturizer. It reduces pore size, wrinkles and acne scarring. It's also effective in reversing sun damage and correcting hyper-pigmentation.
Dr Austin formulated a glycolic treatment pad using pure, active pharmaceutical grade ingredients-the most efficient way to use glycolic acid. The daily pads delivered better results than expensive in-office glycolic peel and similar cosmetic procedures. The results were dramatic!
I was pretty impressed with the information I had read and couldn't wait to try out the products.
