improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, rough uneven and dry skin and pigmentation.
how does it work? glycolic acid is the smallest type of alpha hydroxy acid so it penetrates the skin quickly and helps to unglue the dead skin cells that need to be shed. This means it’s a ‘smart’ exfoliator as it only targets the dead skin cells that are ready. it helps skin become smoother and retain water to stay hydrated. it’s the no-peel peel solution that works steadily but gently to reveal brighter skin below. with a whopping 15% Arginine, an essential amino acid, added the formula to help slow the entry of glycolic acid into the skin to prevent stinging. this means this gentle formula can be left on overnight as a zero-waste sleeping mask so it can work wonders while you sleep!
how to use:
apply a thin layer to clean, very dry skin as the last step in your PM skincare routine.
can be used on alternate nights or as a weekly mask but is gentle enough to leave on. in the morning, wash off with a gentle cleanser. use your finger pads to gently buff away any build up of dead skin cells and then apply your daily routine. make sure to use with a daily sunscreen.
when used in combination with other targeted treatment products, it can enhance the absorption of other active ingredients into the skin. It is also beneficial for those suffering from mild acne.
