Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cleanser Review

Jan Marini Bioglycolic Face Cleanser ($29) is a gentle cleanser made with my personal favorite ingredient, glycolic acid. If you’ve never used glycolic acid, let me tell you it’s fabulous for aging as well as acne prone skin. It helps wrinkles AND pimples, how cool is that?

Glycolic acid is the most active and beneficial of the Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHA) used in skin care and is derived from sugar cane.  *It stimulates the collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis, improving the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and other forms of sun damage. **Due to this unique mechanism of action, glycolic acid has also been found to be beneficial for the management of conditions involving hyperkeratinization, i.e., psoriasis, ichthyosis, acne, dry skin, etc. Anyone suffering from these skin disorders would benefit greatly from the use of glycolic acid. It’s a fundamental part of a skin care maintenance program that will keep your skin healthy throughout the years.  Read more
