Regular cleansing is essential to keeping your skin looking radiant and healthy. Some might call it the “building block” of a good skincare regime. Cleansing helps anti-aging products and treatments work properly. Cleansing helps maintain proper pore size. Cleansing encourages proper skin hydration and prevents the production of excess oils. NEOSTRATA (meaning “new layers” in latin) has a range of age-defying cleansers to suit all skin types.   I have outlined the most popular ones below alongside the specific skin concerns they are designed to address;
