The Best Facial Cleanser for Skin
There is a difficult balancing act for cleansers: strong enough to remove what must be removed but gentle enough so that the skin is not left harshly dry, raw and desiccated. Happily, we now have remarkable products for cleansing all skin types.
Skin cleansing needs to reflect several things including age, skin type and sun exposure history. In addition, many common skin conditions have their own cleansing requirements. A few of these will be highlighted here:

Revoderm is based in the Rocky Mountains; the climate here is especially harsh for skin. It is a cold, dry climate and the effects of chronic ultraviolet light are more acute given the high altitudes of western North America. With increasing age and sun damage, the skin becomes thinner, loses its ability to retain water and is easily irritated by pollutants, irritants and allergens because the barrier function of the skin becomes progressively compromised.
For dry and sun damaged skin, fragrances are a no-no; they smell pretty but can leave you with a red, itchy peeling face.
Revive Cleanser was envisioned with these realities in mind. This novel cleanser contains ultra pure sodium hyaluronate, which is a natural body molecule that acts as the ultimate “sponge” for your skin. Sodium hyaluronate recruits water from your bloodstream as well as from the outside environment. Acetyl Octapeptide (a small protein complex) is added to help boost skin hydration through its water binding properties. In addition, this cleanser has many soothing botanical extracts including:
Cucumber Fruit extract – to firm and protect the skin
Orange oil – a natural astringent and antiseptic that produces calming effects on the skin
Allantoin – an extract of the comfrey plant which helps promote the growth of healthy new skin cells
Clary Sage extract – as with Orange oil, this is a natural astringent and antiseptic
Sweet Almond oil – helps clean prominent pores; also helps with puffy loose skin around the eyes
Vitamin B 5 (panthenol) – an excellent lubricant and emollient

Of note, hyaluronic acid serums are combined beautifully with good moisturizer. Hyaluronic acid serums should go on before the moisturizer – they “seal” the moisture in the skin... And finally, when a skin condition is treated, or when the weather changes, a person’s cleansing needs often change. If you have questions, please talk to us.
