The idea of a facial peel can be scary (anyone remember Samantha’s treatment-gone-awry in Sex and the City?), but in actuality, they can be really beneficial for your skin. philosophy’s two-step microdelivery peel delivers spa-grade exfoliation that can be used at home to freshen skin and combat the signs of aging. Enzymes resurface and restore a dull complexion while vitamin-rich crystals nourish and replenish.
How it Works
Vitamin C and peptide crystals act as a gentle exfoliator while simultaneously nourishing skin from within. Lactic and salicylic acids rapidly dissolve dead skin cells and improve skin’s texture. The result: skin that’s smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking.
How to Use
After washing face, apply a teaspoon-sized amount of vitamin c/peptide resurfacing crystals to clean dry skin. Gently massage crystals in a circular motion for up to 60 seconds, avoiding eyes. Massage a generous teaspoon-sized amount of activating gel on top of crystals (a foam will appear and a warming sensation will occur). Leave foam on for two to three minutes. Less sensitive skin types can massage foam for extra exfoliating benefits. Rinse thoroughly and moisturize as usual.
