A super matte face used to be the look everyone was going for. Now, everyone wants to look moist. Close-up photos of people showing off their radiant visages under extremely good lighting have taken the place of ultra matte contoured skin and it’s probably because they use a good ol’ vitamin C serum in their daily routine. Vitamin C is a powerhouse, multitasking antioxidant that both protects—neutralizing free radicals to prevent oxidative stress—and repairs—reducing hyperpigmentation and boosting collagen synthesis. Vitamin C serums are the go-to anti-aging remedy and the antidote to lacklustre, dehydrated skin. There is nothing better than great skin and now more than ever we are make up free.
As a sufferer of dry, dull skin myself I had a session with Dermalogica to chat getting bright and my skin right.
We started with a Pre Cleanse and Micro foliant to get the skin looking radiant and giving you the base for the next step.
Rapid Reveal Peel has a remarkable way of erasing those signs of aging. It kick-starts skin renewal for instant radiance, speeding removal of dull cells on the surface of your skin to reveal brighter, smoother, healthier-looking skin below. This enhanced cell renewal helps make up for what the skin naturally loses over time. Best of all, there is no downtime to the skin!
Key Ingredients and Benefits:
This convenient, at-home peel is the highest-strength retail exfoliant, that you can simply pop on while watching your favourite Netflix series and let the magic happen!
A unique complex of phytoactive Alpha Hydroxy Acids helps reveal new and firmer skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing dulling surface debris without causing dehydration.
Fermented plant enzymes help even skin tone by resurfacing the skin and accelerating cell turnover.Australian Caviar Lime Extract smoothes and brightens for a more radiant complexion.
How to Use:
1. Twist open applicator plug and dispense product into hands.
2. Lightly massage over face, neck and chest with fingertips in circular motion. Allow to activate for 3-7 minutes, depending on your skin’s sensitivity. You may experience slight tingling and/or warming.
3. Rinse thoroughly with cold water or wipe off with a cold, damp towel. Recommended for usage in the evening. I use cool water with this for the ultimate glow!
Optional Kick-Start Phase
A kick-start phase is recommended for those who are looking to achieve accelerated results. Start by using one tube of Rapid Reveal Peel every day for 3 days. After the 3rd day, transition to using one Rapid Reveal Peel tube every week.
Ideal for maintaining the best results. Use one tube once a week.
