The 20-minute Renewing Mini-Facial includes a 20% salicylic acid peel.
Salicylic acid speeds cell turnover and exfoliates dead skin cells, reducing pimples and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, hyperpigmentation and sun damage.
The Renewing Facial is best-suited to those with oily or acne prone skin as the salicylic acid is oil soluble and can penetrate the skin via the sebaceous gland. For these types of skin BHAs, like salicylic acid often perform better than AHAs (glycolic and lactic acid) due to their ability to penetrate deeper with their lipid base capabilities attaching to our own natural skin oils.
Salicylic acid also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce redness and irritation from breakouts.
What is included in the 20-minute Renewing Mini-Facial?
Skin Cleanse - First your skin is cleansed with our signature nourishing, cleansing lotion with Vitamins A, E and B5 for radiant, healthier looking, softer skin.
Light scrub and face massage - this helps with the absorption of the peel in the next step.
20% Salicylic Acid peel - treats acne-prone and oily skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin tone and texture.
Collagen or Elastin gel - helps calm the skin and can help with acne and breakouts.
Hydrating cream - The final step is the application of a gentle moisturizing cream which combines plant sterols; extracts of sweet potato, aloe vera, thyme, rosemary and goldenseal; and moor water to deeply hydrate, protect and revitalize the skin.
*The salicylic peel is not included with a full facial as it is mostly for acne prone skin, therefore it's important to keep product usage to a minimum.
