The Science of Skincare- Jan Marini Bioglycolic Line

Skincare gets technical when I call in the big guns.

I was first introduced to the Jan Marini Skincare line via Marini Lash and the Antioxidant Daily Face Protectant SPF 30 Tinted. Now, I venture deeper into the amazing Marini Line with Bioglycolics. Specifically, the Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser and Bioglycolic Resurfacing Body Scrub.


Time to get technical, and delve back into my pre-med roots. What does this Bioglycolic business mean, anyway?

The active ingredient in the bioglycolic line is glycolic acid, an acid with a relatively low pH that possesses the ability to really penetrate the first layer of skin to dissolve lipids (fats, dirt, oils, etc). Glycolic acid is proven to improve skin tone and texture, and is ever-present in many skin peels, both clinical and at-home versions. For the Biolglycolic line, Jan Marini has included the useful acid in low concentrations in order to dissolve pore-clogging residue, allowing for maximum product absorption. That means your serums and lotions will really get into that fresh, clean, clog-free skin.
With such a potent and effective active ingredient, it is no wonder that I am now hooked on the cleanser. It has become a staple of my nightly skincare routine for the past 3 weeks and is still going strong. Using this has made my skin smoother and more radiant. Most importantly, it gets rid of the day's nastiness, leaving my skin clean as a whistle with no dryness. The cleanser is gentle enough for daily use, and has no scent.
Bioglycolic Resurfacing Scrub taps into the same glycolic power, with the addition of exfoliating granules to help slough off dull, dead skin. I have been using this with every shower, to ensure that all the roughness goes away and that my skin is left ready to absorb my moisturizer.

These two products are winners in my book, and further back my love for Jan Marini skincare. The Bioglycolic skincare line is all available online, and I highly recommend checking it out.
