Want to discover all that the wonderful skincare brand NeoStrata has to offer? One of our favorite brands, NeoStrata is a pioneer in Alpha Hydroxy Acids, otherwise known as AHAs, for the skin.
If you’re a skincare enthusiast, you may have heard of the buzzword around. After all, nowadays almost every skincare brand offers skin-smoothing AHAs in their collections.
But what else do NeoStrata stand for, and how did they revolutionize the skincare industry? It’s time to find out.
The Ethos of NeoStrata Products
NeoStrata are experts in the field of skincare, having researched topical skincare ingredients for over 40 years. Over this period, some of the most popular and innovative skincare technologies were discovered by NeoStrata. This includes glycolic acid.
In 1974, the founders of NeoStrata revealed the incredible advantages of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) for the skin. Since then, such ingredients have grown in popularity. Nowadays the most revered skincare brands sell a selection of Alpha Hydroxy Acids.
NeoStrata professional branded skincare formulas are championed and recommended around the world by dermatologists and plastic surgeons across 60 countries. Impressively, NeoStrata is the number one recommended AHA skincare brand by physicians across the globe. So, if you’re seeking such products, with NeoStrata you can trust that you’re in good hands.
NeoStrata professional formulas are carefully designed featuring alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) to improve the therapeutic treatments and skincare products as recommended by physicians and dermatologists.
Not sure what all the fuss is about when it comes to alpha and polyhydroxy acids? If you haven’t already heard, these acids help improve the appearance of aging or sun-damaged skin. They also help improve skin issues such as hyperkeratosis and hyperpigmentation.
So, what does NeoStrata’s exhaustive range of professional skincare products include?
There’s a range of products for both the face and the body featuring different concentrations of AHA and PHA ingredients. There are also combinational formulas with sunscreens, brightening, or anti-acne agents. That means all kinds of skin types are considered.
Not only do NeoStrata products work wonders for clearing the skin, but every item is sustainable and ethically sourced too. All NeoStrata products are dermatologist and allergy tested, fragrance-free, and dye-free. They’re also contained in recyclable packaging and aren’t tested on animals.
Most NeoStrata products are also non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic too. And the NeoStrata PHA products are hypoallergenic. Every container is sealed with a tamper-resistant safety seal to ensure that the product is safe and untouched until opened.
Our Top Picks
Dreaming of healthy, glowing, and blemish-free skin? Let’s take a look at some of our top picks from NeoStrata’s impressive skincare line-up to help you on your quest.
NeoStrata Illuminating Serum
For flawless skin, NeoStrata’s Illuminating Serum targets discoloration and an uneven skin tone. The formula features NEOGLUCOSAMINE™ which is a soothing exfoliator renowned for fading the look of existing skin discolorations.
The serum is also packed full of 4% Niacinamide along with a skin-loving combo of vitamin C, B-resorcinol, and licorice extract to welcome a brighter and smoother face.
To use, apply the serum twice a day to a clean face using your fingertips. Make sure you cover the whole face, along with the neck. After all, nobody wants a smooth façade and a wrinkly neck.
The serum can be used independently or applied under another treatment and moisturizer. For the best results, limit the sun exposure (but still be sure to apply sunscreen – as always).
NeoStrata Intensive Eye Therapy Cream
Tired of waking up to puffy eyes and fine lines? Then reach for NeoStrata’s Intensive Eye Therapy Cream. The formula works to improve the look of the eye area, smoothing crow’s feet and under-eye wrinkles and reducing eyelid sagging.
Full of NEOGLUCOSAMINE®and rejuvenating peptides, the eye cream helps to offer a firmer look for brighter eyes. Other ingredients include caffeine and hyaluronic acid to make sure the skin stays hydrated while helping to deflate any puffiness.
To use, gently apply to the eye area until absorbed. To allow your skin to get used to the formula, use once daily for two weeks then twice daily afterward.
NeoStrata PHA Facial Cleanser
This gentle NeoStrata PHA Facial Cleanser is a soap-free formula that efficiently cleanses and lightly exfoliates skin without drying it out. The product is made with gluconolactone, a PHA which works well for all skin types. That makes it ideal for people who suffer from sensitive skin, even for those that have rosacea.
Plus, the cleanser is a savior for those that have recently undertaken an in-office dermatology procedure. This includes a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or non-ablative laser treatment.
The cleanser preps the skin, getting it ready for the rest of the treatments and moisturizers that follow. With consistent use, the formula helps make the skin appear younger and softer.
To use, apply a fair amount to wet skin and gently massage into your face, avoiding the eyes. Rise with water. Use twice daily or as recommended by a physician.
