Time to Shed the Dead Skin from Winter

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

 As the heater gets turned off and you step out with fewer layers you may feel like your body needs to be revived from the winter hibernation. Abella Skin Care offers two solutions to exfoliate your skin and give you back your youthful glow.

The Exfoliating Cleanser is a unique blend of Natural Green Tea, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Aloe and other ingredients. We choose these main ingredients for the following benefits:

Natural Green Tea acts as counterirritants and an anti-inflammatory

Alpha Hydroxy Acid removes dead skin cells and excess oils

Lactic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid that gently exfoliates as well as hydrates

Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid that removes the top layer of old skin cells to brighten and even out texture

Aloe is a cell renewal ingredient that accelerates the skin’s natural repair process, eases inflammation and soothes the skin

This deep cleansing formula leaves the skin soft and preps the skin allowing greater absorbency of the Renewal Gel 10% Glycolic Acid.

The Renewal Gel is a Glycolic Acid formula with a pH of 1.8 and is a great at home peel to do on your skin. As stated above Glycolic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid that removes the top layer of old skin cells to brighten and even out texture. Other benefits include: accelerates the skin’s natural exfoliation process, stimulates circulation (increases production of collagen and elastin), reduces acne and blackhead frequency, and minimizes wrinkles & fine lines.

How to use: Apply a thin coat of Renewal Gel to cover your face, neck, back, hands or spot treat with a Q-Tip on desired areas (for example a pimple). Allow to work for 30 to 45 minutes. For a deeper peel you can leave the product on the skin longer or overnight depending on your skins individual tolerance. Rinse well with lukewarm water until the product is removed.

Sun Protection Tip:

Any product that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Abella Skin Care recommends the use a sunscreen, such as the SolarShade SPF 45 or the ColorShade SPF 30+.
