Young adult consumers are savvier than ever and their buying power has created a booming pre-adult beauty industry. Abella Skin Care has taken notice and launched products such as the Renewal Gel™ to reach that younger demographic. The glycolic formulation found in the Renewal™ Gel is the over the counter solution to many of the acne causing skin problems concerning these young consumers. Alpha Hydroxy Acids found in the Renewal Gel™ have been a part of daily skin regimes since the time of Cleopatra. They have found their niche in exfoliating away the dead and dry layers of skin and reducing breakouts on all skin types.
WHAT DOES IT DO? Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane, and it has the smallest molecules of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) family. Because of its smaller molecular structure, glycolic is one of the fastest working AHA’s and that is why it is one of the most effective. The Renewal Gel™ will accelerate the skin’s natural exfoliation process, stimulates circulation (increases production of collagen and elastin), reduces breakouts and blackhead frequency, and increases penetration of other treatment products by maximizing their absorption into the skin.
WHY IS IT BENEFICIAL? The skin continually produces new cells to repave its surface and refresh your skin. Normally, dead skin cells are flushed up and out of the pores with the flow of the skin oil produced inside the pore. In some cases, these cells multiply faster and stick together forming an impaction within the pore. Bacteria then grows within the pore causing a blemish, a white head or blackhead, which becomes visible. These formations are called comedones. The use of a glycolic acid can promote the exfoliation process and help to flush out the pore to minimize the occurrence of these comedones.
WHO SHOULD USE IT? Anyone who falls into the following category would benefit from the use of an exfoliation product that helps to minimize the accumulation of dead skin cells and eliminate excessive oil and bacteria within the pores: Oily Skin, Hyperpigmented Skin, Acne/Problem Skin, Dry Skin, Mature or Sun Damaged Skin, Men with ingrown facial hair from shaving (pseudofolliculitis barbae), Before the use of a Sunless Tanner.
WHO SHOULD NOT USE IT? Anyone with the following conditions should refrain from the use of Glycolic or any other acid which may irritate the skin, such as: Skin Lesions, Moles, Active Cold Sores/Fever Blisters, Psoriasis, Sunburn, Open Skin Sores of any Kind, Razor Cuts from Shaving, immediately following Waxing (48 hours), immediately following Hair Color or Processing (48 hours).
