Diminish Signs of Fine Lines with a 3 Step ProgramOn November 15, 2020 by Charlestoneblog
If you have a big event like a wedding (or your high school reunion) & want gorgeous skin, you can follow a 3-step program the stars use to get ready for awards shows & red carpet premieres.
In the March 2020 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, renowned dermatologist, Harold Lancer, MD, spills his 3-step secret for reducing the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles while ending up with glowing skin — just in time for a special event.
Step #1: Cleanse with a salicylic acid cleanser
Lancer suggests you cleanse face, neck & upper chest with a 2 percent salicylic acid cleanser. This removes dead skin cells. We’ve done the research on good cleansers. We suggest you try:
- Murad Clarifying Cleanser
- JOEY New York Pure Pores Cleansing Gel with Vitamin C
- AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser by Murad
- Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash
Step #2: Follow cleanser with a 5 percent glycolic acid toner
Lancer suggests this 2nd step to bring blood flow to your face, neck & chest. We researched some great toners & suggest these:
Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner
Physician’s Complex Glycolic Acid Toner
Reviva Labs glycolic acid toner
