Exfoliators and Face Masks


Oily Skin

    If you have oily skin, the dead skin cells that accumulate naturally on its surface will tend to stick around and clog your pores. When you apply NeoStrata Clarify Exfoliating Mask in the evening, the mask works to exfoliate your skin gently as you sleep, unclogging your pores and clarifying your skin. If you have patches of discoloured skin left by blemishes, this mask will brighten and minimise them as well.


    Use NeoStrata Clarify Exfoliating Mask every night. Clean your skin, and then gently apply a thin, even layer of the mask to your skin without rubbing it in. Wait 5 to 10 minutes to allow the mask to penetrate your skin before applying your moisturiser. Leave the mask on overnight and rinse it off with water in the morning.

    What is NeoGlucosamine?

    NeoGlucosamine is a non-acidic exfoliant also known as acetyl glucosamine. It offers similar exfoliating properties to alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) but is gentler on your skin than AHAs, so it’s suitable for overnight use, as in this mask. NeoGlucosamine helps encourage cell turnover, reduces the visibility of dark spots and skin discolouration, and also helps your skin retain moisture. It is considered suitable for most skin types. 

    Why should I exfoliate my skin?

    Exfoliating your skin removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface, revealing fresher skin. It also helps to prevent your pores from getting clogged and developing spots, which is especially likely to happen if you have oily or oil-prone skin. Exfoliation can also stimulate your skin to produces new skin cells more quickly, which may improve your skin tone. Given these advantages, exfoliation is a key step in your skincare regime, but it’s essential to exfoliate gently – for example, NeoGlucosamine – rather than exfoliate vigorously, which can damage the skin’s surface.

    Why do I need to use sunscreen after exfoliating my skin?

    Exfoliating your skin removes the top layer of dead cells that have been protecting your skin. That makes your skin more sensitive and more vulnerable to ultraviolet (UV) rays, so your skin can burn more easily. To offset this increased sensitivity, apply sunscreen to protect the new layer of skin.
