4 Skin Care Steps to Follow After Being in the Sun

When you lounge out in the sun, there is a lot going on below the surface of your complexion. And post sun care can be just as important as pre sun prep.

As always, we stress the importance of using a broad spectrum SPF. Follow along to discover our personal recommendations to help skin recover from days spent in the sun with these 4 simple steps:

1. Hydrate Inside and Out

Your body is basically over half water, so it is no surprise that after being in the sun, the first thing you need to do is restore hydration. Drinking water will help boost moisture internally to reverse the dehydration that is often caused when you spend time in the sun. You can also rinse the body with cool water to help soothe skin before lathering from head-to-toe in a moisture-rich formula. Complete your shower with a Face and Body CBD Lotion that is powered by Hemp Oil, peptides and amino acids to hydrate dry skin.

2. Refresh with a Moisturizing Mist

If you are feeling dry throughout the day help boost your skin with a quenching spritz. Using a moisturizing mist that slips into your bag or purse will let you refresh on the go, especially when skin feels dry after time spent outside. Look for ingredients like Trehalose and probiotics to help rejuvenate the look of the complexion while restoring the skin’s moisture barrier. COSMEDIX Mystic Hydrating Treatment can be used in a skin care routine or during the day to add a refreshing burst to parched, dry skin.

3. Prevent Dark Spots and Wrinkles

Sun damage is notorious for causing dark spots and wrinkles. After a day spent in the sun, indulging your skin to skin care products high in Vitamin C can help prevent these stubborn spots and lines from forming over time. Simply Brilliant is a 24/7 Brightening Serum that is formulated with 10 different brightening ingredients to help improve the look of  uneven skin tone. Apply this serum to the face, shoulders or chest after a day of sun-bathing to help reduce the appearance (or help prevent the appearance) of sun-spots or wrinkles. 

4. Sleep in a Uber-Hydrating Mask

If you really did a doozy on your skin, then getting your beauty sleep while drenched in an Intense Hydrating Mask or Balm can help restore moisture while you dream. Lather up with ingredients like Shea Butter and soothing Willowherb for the ultimate overnight treatment that helps encourage total moisture restoration. COSMEDIX Rescue doubles as both a skin care mask and balm, and it can be used on dry areas of the face or body for an added dose moisture overnight. Formulated with Shea Butter, Cherry Bark Extract and rich antioxidants, this uber-hydrating mask is the answer to help quench skin’s thirst.

Got Breakouts? Face Mapping is About to Become Your New BFF

Ever wonder why your breakouts seem to pop up in the same place over and over again? If only you had a road map that would give you the backroads to a clearer, healthier-looking complexion.

Well, we have news for you. There is! Rooted in ancient Chinese medicine, face mapping is a popular skin care practice as old as time. In its true form, this art links different areas of the face to certain organs in the body, but the modern version of the acne face map takes a more general approach.

Blemishes that tend to appear in the same area of the face are believed to be the result of lifestyle habits. So, if you find yourself struggling with stubborn spots that you just can’t kick, then face mapping might just be the thing for you.

Want to know more? Then take a seat, look yourself in the mirror and use our handy COSMEDIX face map guide to discover what your blemishes have to say about you—and how you can fix it:

Hairline 


What to Do: Check Your Products

If bumps on the hairline is your signature skincare woe, then you probably need to double check your hair products. Most conditioners feature rich ingredients that are designed to love on your strands… but not so much on your skin. In fact, the thicker pomades used to lock moisture into your mane can often lead to clogged pores. But don’t freight because there is an easy fix. Help improve the look of these blemishes by using your cleanser AFTER rinsing out your conditioner. Simply create a rich lather and work it into the hairline before applying a skin-clarifying serum to help reduce the look of redness.

Forehead


What to Do: Check Your Oil Control + Stress + Sleep

Reducing stress and balancing a sleep schedule might not be our area of expertise, but we do know a thing (or twenty) about balancing your complexion. If you experience breakouts across the forehead, near the brows and/or down the nose, the acne face map says oil might be to blame. Blemishes in these areas are common among a combination and oily skin type, as sebum (oil) can go a little overboard in these parts of the face. Incorporating an exfoliating cleanser or refinishing treatment that helps restore balance and moisture to the complexion is an ideal way to help reduce these types of blemishes.

Cheeks


What to Do: Check Your Phone and Pillowcases

Think of everything your phone touches. Tables, car seats, back pockets… toilets. And what do all these places have in common? Germs. You might not think about it when putting your phone to your ear, but your cell phone holds a lot of bacteria. Same with your pillowcase. So, if you find yourself repeatedly suffering from spots on your cheeks, the first step would be to wipe down your phone and clean your sheets. The second would be to apply a rapid relief acne spot treatment to problem areas when needed. We recommend prioritizing a clean formula that uses Salicylic Acid and Aloe Vera to refine pores while soothing the skin.

Jawline


What to Do: Check Your Hormones

Yes, hormonal acne is usually synonymous with adolescence, but many people are still surprised when it shows up in adulthood. If you are experiencing breakouts around the chin and jawline, then it is best to visit a skin care professional. Lucky for you, COSMEDIX partners with some of the world’s best dermatologists and spas, which you can find here. In the meantime, make sure that you are washing your face with a Salicylic Acid foaming cleanser to help cleanse away

The Best Skincare Advice We Got from Mom

Counselor. Superhero. Cheerleader. Boss Babe. Moms are the guiding light of our lives, and it is so important that we take the time to show her just how much we care!

This Mother’s Day, COSMEDIX decided to take a page from the mother’s book of advice (there’s a lot) by highlighting some of the best skincare guidance our very own moms passed down to us—plus which COSMEDIX mother’s day bundle is perfect for her!  

Eunice | Creative Content Manager

Mom’s Advice: “Don’t touch your face. Growing up my mom was an aesthetician and out of all the skincare rules this is the one I heard the most!”

Her Perfect Bundle: ”The Mother’s Day Brightening Bundle. First, my mom is obsessed with Vitamin C, which is the star ingredient in both Simply Brilliant and Pure C Mixing Crystals. Combined, these skincare products are excellent for helping improve the look of dark spots, uneven skin tone and texture.”

Amber | Marketing Coordinator

Mom’s Advice: “My mom taught me the importance of quality skincare and being conscious of what I put on my complexion. Choosing products that are made with clean ingredients that love the skin is always worth a few extra bucks.”

Her Perfect Bundle: “COSMEDIX Affirm + Rose Quartz Roller Bundle. Affirm is such an easy everyday serum that helps protect and firm the look of skin. My mom also loves anything that pampers, so the Rose Quartz roller is the perfect addition to her skincare routine!”

Kimberlin | Senior Graphic Designer

Mom’s Advice: “Start your skincare routine young and your skin will thank you later. My mom wears minimal makeup and has beautiful skin—which she credits to starting her skincare routine early. Prevention is truly key!”

Her Perfect Bundle: “The Brightening Bundle for sure! Vitamin C is so good for helping to protect your skin from outside stressors, plus I love that you can add the Pure C Vitamin C Mixing Crystals into any of your skincare products for an added boost.”

Kennedy | COSMEDIX Office Admin

Mom’s Advice: “My mom always stressed how it important it was to wash your face before bed! Yes, we get told this all the time, but it was something I didn’t fully understand the importance of until I got older. Now I can’t fall asleep without a fresh face.”

Her Perfect Bundle: “Definitely the COSMEDIX Clarifying Bundle! My mom is all about a deep skin clean. The Clarity serum is such a great skincare multi-tasker to help improve the look of wrinkles AND pores. The Correct spot treatment is also a fool proof go-to for pesky pimples that like to pop up throughout the week.”

Grace | Digital Marketing Specialist

Mom’s Advice: “Wear sunscreen. It a rule as old as time, but it is so important to the health of your skin—especially as you get older.”

Her Perfect Bundle: “The COSMEDIX Clarifying Bundle. My mom loves a good face mask, and the Detox Activated Charcoal Mask in this Mothers Day skincare bundle helps exfoliate and deep clean the skin while you sit back and relax.”

How to Actually Care for Skin Before and After Spa Treatment

Self-care means spa care. If it’s been a while since your last trip to the spa—or you’re a proud spa newbie—there are a few things to know before (and after) you go. Pre and post skin care is a MUST if you are wanting to get the most out of your recent spa treatment. After all, no one wants to spend time and money on their complexion just to end up where they started. So, whether you plan to stop in for a routine facial, rejuvenate the look of skin with micro needling or get a whole new looking face with a chemical peel, follow these COSMEDIX tips before and after you go:

PREP

Use a Prep Skincare Kit

The best way to prep for a skin treatment is to invest in a prep skincare kit. As you probably gathered from the name, this skincare kit is specially made to help get skin ready for a facial, microneedle or chemical peel. Many prep kits feature convenient, travel-friendly products that help exfoliate dry skin, boost hydration and protect the skin from environmental stressors so that your skin is ready, set, go for your scheduled spa appointment.

PRO TIP: Though prep kits help prepare the complexion for a treatment, it is important to stop using any active ingredients right before your visit. If your skincare kit includes exfoliants, Vitamin C or Retinol, we recommend you stop using these skin care products 24-48 hours before your spa trip.

Avoid the Sun

Of course, you don’t need to hide out in the house the whole week before a spa treatment, but it is a good idea to minimize sun exposure. Sunshine can often lead to redness or general skin sensitivity, which is why it is so important to slather on a broad spectrum SPF. By cutting back on your time in the sun, you can help ensure that your complexion is ready and “unbothered” before your spa treatment.

Steer Clear of Waxing and Injections

Again, the goal before a spa treatment is to help keep skin “relaxed.” Just like the sun, it is important to skip any maintenance that might irritate the skin or cause redness—this includes waxing, fillers and Botox. So, if you are prepping you skin for the big day or an exciting event and want to get the full beauty treatment, try to reserve your cosmetic appointment 1-2 weeks before or after a facial treatment.

POST

Focus on Soothing Skincare Ingredients

Post spa treatment is all about recovery. Whether your skin is flakey from a chemical peel or a little red from extractions, help your skin hit “reset” with a gentle skincare routine that features soothing ingredients. Reach for a serum formulated with Hyaluronic Acid or antioxidants to help encourage a more even skin tone and texture, or a gentle cleanser with Sandalwood to help gently wash away impurities.

Use Sunscreen

Sunscreen is always a must, but it is a definite MUST after a chemical peel. Chemical peels work by literally shedding your outer layer of skin, which means that your new “baby skin” is even more sensitive than before. Wearing sunscreen will help protect this fresh layer and help minimize the appearance of dark spots and sun damage. 

Skip the Makeup

Ideally, you should give your skin room to breathe after a trip to the spa. If you stopped in for micro needling or a chemical peel, chances are your complexion is still “healing”. It is best to let your skin indulge itself to some fresh air before going back to your regular makeup routine. And, if you must  apply makeup for work or a big event, try to use lighter skin care products like BB creams or tinted moisturizers.

The Complete Guide to Niacinamide: What is it and What is it Actually Doing for Your Skin

Hard to say, but easy to love, Niacinamide is as vital to your skincare routine as an effective Retinol and Vitamin C. This multi-tasking skincare ingredient has flown under the radar for quite some time, but thanks to dermatologists and influencers, it has finally arrived to stake it’s claim in the beauty game.

If you, like many, have noticed this ingredient popping up left and right and want to learn more, keep on scrolling to discover what this popular ingredient is actually doing below the surface:

First Things First, What is Niacinamide?

Niacinamide is the technical term for Vitamin B3. Just like other common vitamins found in skincare, this skin-loving ingredient serves its own special purpose when it comes to caring for the complexion. When applied topically to the skin, Niacinamide packs a multipurpose punch that helps address a variety of skin concerns. It’s gentle nature also makes it a great ingredient for people who struggle with acne-prone skin types.

What Are the Benefits?

  • Minimize Oil: Niacinamide helps balance the look of skin by encouraging less oil production. It is also a gentle skincare ingredient that is non-irritating to most skin types, making it a must-have addition for anyone after a clearer-looking complexion.
  • Improves the appearance of uneven skin tone and texture: If you are looking for a streamlined skin care routine, add Vitamin B3 into your skincare collection, pronto. Niacinamide is known to improve the overall look of skin by helping to refine the look of pores, reduce the appearance of sun spots and improve the look of hyperpigmentation.
  • Strengthens the skin natural barrier: Just like the body, the skin needs vitamins to function properly. Niacinamide works below the surface of the complexion to help improve skin barrier function and lock in moisture. This also helps protect the skin from age-accelerating environmental stressors, like pollution.
  • Softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles: Because of it’s hydrating properties, Niacinamide works to keep the skin soft and supple. This, in turn, helps plump the look of skin and prevent the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

How Do I Add Niacinamide Into My Skincare Routine?

Niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that can be applied as a serum, moisturizer, or powder. This lightweight ingredient is extremely versatile and won’t react to active ingredients, like Vitamin A, Vitamin C or Acids. This means you can use it both morning and night, as it absorbs quickly and easily into the skin—no sticky residue here! So, go ahead. Add Niacinamide into your skin care routine and discover the benefits first hand:

Vitamin B Boosting Powder

Using a Boosting Powder with hydrating ingredients—like Niacinamide, Coconut Powder and Yogurt—is an easy way to amplify your skin care routine with customized benefits. Simply sprinkle the Booster Powder into your favorite serum or moisturizer for an added dose of moisture and clarifying properties.

Hydrating Serum

A Niacinamide serum is another popular way to add this buzzworthy ingredient into your skincare routine. COSMEDIX Simple Brilliant 24/7 Brightening Serum and Surge Hyaluronic Acid Booster are two best sellers that are each formulated with Niacinamide to help brighten the complexion, hydrate the skin and refine the look of pores for an overall clearer, more radiant-looking appearance.

3 Holygrail Products You Need to Tame Dull Skin and Get that Vday Glow

Ready, set, prep your way to Valentines Day skin that glows! Between the chocolate, candles and romance of it all, it is easy to overlook one of THE most important parts of a good Valentine prep—your skincare.

Whether you are celebrating with the girls or plan to put on a full face of glam, your skin needs to be ready. Show your skin some love the night before and achieve a smooth makeup application the next day with 3 easy skincare steps that add a little love and affection to your nightly skincare routine:

Use an Exfoliating Face Mask

Get your complexion ready for the day of L-O-V-E with an exfoliating face mask. Using a chemical exfoliant or gentle facial scrub before bed will help polish away dull, dry skin and reset the complexion for the swoon-worthy day ahead. If you struggle with blemishes, give them some extra valentine attention by applying a Detox face mask with purifying ingredients like charcoal. And if you are looking to amp up the glow, incorporate a face scrub that contains brightening ingredients like the ever-popular Vitamin C.

Indulge Your Skin to Rich Moisture

Now that the dry skin layer has been washed away, let your complexion drink up ultimate hydration. Applying an Intensely Hydrating balm or mask after you exfoliate is a simple way to help boost product absorption and quench the complexion. Look for skincare products that are rich in moisturizing  ingredients such as Shea Butter, Hyaluronic Acid and plant-based extracts to help soften and plump the look of skin, so you can wake up to a complexion that is ready to glow for your vday fun.

Apply a Lip Treatment

We get it. Sometimes we’re so focused on that star-crossed glow that we forget our lips are actually part of our skincare. But honestly, is there anything more important on Valentines Day than a kissable pout and cupid’s bow? We think not. Prep your lips for Valentine pucker with  hydrating lip products the night before. We love to use a lip exfoliator to gently scrub away dull skin before coating the lips in a rich lip balm or Lip-Plumping Mask to help deeply condition, improve the look of fine lines and reveal a fuller-looking put in the AM.

BONUS! The Day Of:

Add a Vitamin C Boost | Don’t forget to add a dose of Vitamin C into your skincare routine on the day of love. Vitamin C Powder and serum is known to help brighten the look of skin while improving the appearance of skin texture so that you can glow, baby, glow.

Get Rolling | Are you feeling a little puffy before your Galentine’s party or Date Night in? No problem. Use a facial tool—like a Rose Quartz Facial Roller—to help roll away the look of tension and puffiness for a more radiant-looking complexion.

Amp Up Hydration | Give your skin a little pick-me-up throughout the day (or night) with a refreshing facial mist or Hydrating Face Treatment. These are a great and on-the-go way to add the lightweight hydration our skin craves throughout the day—plus they naturally add a dewy appearance to the skin for the ultimate Vday glow!

Chemical Exfoliants 101 with Pure Enzymes

Ready to give chemical exfoliation a try?

If there was any silver lining to this past year, it was a newfound appreciation for our beauty and at-home skincare routines. And, if you haven’t ventured into the realms of chemical exfoliants, you might be missing out. While the name might sound like something you brewed up in chemistry class, it is actually a popular method of skin exfoliation that has been used in the skincare industry for years. Nothing to fear here!

So, if you are looking to up your at-home skincare routine, join us as we deep dive into everything you need to know about chemical exfoliants, including a how to with one of our favorite COSMEDIX chemical exfoliants, Pure Enzymes:

What is a Chemical Exfoliant?

Let’s start with the basics. We’ve all heard of a physical exfoliator (think sugar scrub, walnut scrub, or scrub brush), but what about its chemical alter ego? Popular among skincare professionals, a chemical exfoliant is an acid and/or enzyme that is added to a skincare product to help exfoliate dead skin. Often available in a variety of different strengthens, these exfoliants can be applied to the complexion in the form of a cleanser, toner, lotion or face mask. And, while the word “chemical” might sound a little more advanced, don’t let that make you apprehensive! A number of chemical exfoliants are actually gentler than traditional scrubs.

How Does it Work?

Rather than using gritty skincare ingredients to remove dry skin, chemical exfoliators help slough away dead skin by encouraging healthy skin renewal. Examples of chemical exfoliants include AHAs, BHA and Fruit Enzymes—all of which work at different levels to help exfoliate the complexion:

AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid): Ideal for normal to sensitive skin types, AHAs work to exfoliate the outermost layer of skin to help improve the look of uneven skin tone, texture and dark spots.

BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid): Great for acne-prone or oily skin types, BHAs work deeper into the skin to help cut through pore-clogging impurities and refine the look of congested pores.

Fruit Enzymes: Unsurprisingly, Fruit Enzymes are derived from… well, fruit. Papaya, Pineapple and Cranberry are popular forms of fruit enzymes that can be applied to skincare formulations to help exfoliate away dull, dry skin. They are also a gentle alternative to AHA and BHA exfoliants.

So, What’s the Deal with Pure Enzymes

Pure Enzymes Cranberry Exfoliating Mask combines L-Lactic Acid—an AHA—and Cranberry Enzymes to help polish away dull, dry surface skin. Powered with refreshing and moisture-boosting ingredients, this  antioxidant rich formula also helps protect the skin from environmental stressors while locking in long-lasting hydration for a softer, plumper-looking complexion.

How to Apply + How Often to Use…

The most important key to exfoliating with Pure Enzymes is knowing HOW to use it and what to expect. Pure Enzymes can be used 2-3 times a week, depending on your skin type. Because of the chemical properties in this face mask, a little redness and tingling is to be expected—so don’t panic! That’s just the exfoliating and uber-hydrating skincare ingredients doing their best work!

To apply:

Step #1: Use COSMEDIX Dual-Sided Silicone Mask Applicator to apply Pure Enzymes to the face in sections. Don’t forget your neck!

Step #2: Allow to the mask to sit on the skin from 3-10 minutes. 3 minutes is usually best for sensitive skin types, where more oily or normal skin types can benefit from a longer application.

Step #3: Use warm water to gently remove the mask with your hands or a washcloth. Pat dry and follow up with your favorite COSMEDIX serum and moisturizer.

Get to Know Your Scalp with the NEW Skincare for the Scalp (Treatment)

The game of life is all about finding a perfect balance, so it shouldn’t surprise you that your scalp is in search of the same thing! Sure, the scalp might be overshadowed by beautiful locks and flowing hair (literally), but that doesn’t make it any less important. The skin on your scalp lays the foundation for the health and strength of your strands and, if the scalp is imbalanced, it has the potential to lead to dry skin and brittle hair. No thanks.

So, how do you know if your scalp needs balance?

An imbalanced scalp isn’t as easy to spot as an imbalanced complexion. After all, nothing quite gets your attention like a giant blemish popping up right before the big holiday event or company Zoom meeting. While the scalp might be a little more subtle, it will always find a way let you know if it needs some extra love and care.

Everything from stress, to diet, to hat wear can affect the balance of your scalp. Excess oil or dry, flakey skin are the first obvious signs that the scalp isn’t happy. And, if you’re as dedicated to your dry shampoo as you are to your morning coffee, that is another obvious sign that your scalp needs a reset!

Looking for the reset button?

You’ve come to the right place! We’re taking skincare from your face to your head with our latest addition to the Body by COSMEDIX line: Fortify Cooling Enzyme Scalp Treatment. The first scalp product to join our professional skincare collection, this cooling treatment is our latest secret to a more balanced scalp and three-day hair (and, who doesn’t want that?).

Fortify Cooling Enzyme Treatment wraps the scalp in a cooling sensation that helps balance the skin and remove product buildup. Formulated with an exfoliating enzyme and rich antioxidants, this weekly scalp and hair treatment also helps lift away the dry skin that can often cause the scalp to feel itchy or flakey.  With each use, Fortify boosts the scalp with lightweight hydration as it works to help restore balance and encourage the appearance of hair that is soft, shiny and easier to manage.

It is true that healthy looking hair begins at the root, so indulge your scalp to this invigorating treatment with these skin-loving ingredients 2-3 times a week:

Pumpkin Ferment Extract (Rich in Vitamins A, C and E) | An exfoliating enzyme that helps condition dry scalp and hair

Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract | Antioxidant-rich extract that helps soothe dry skin

Brassica Campestris (Rapeseed) Sterols | Helps improve hair manageability for beautiful-looking strands

Powerful blend of Biopolymers| Deeply hydrate dry skin to help relieve an itchy scalp without an oily residue

How to Apply: No scrubbing here! Unlike typical scalp treatments, Fortify contains a chemical exfoliate that helps polish away dry skin—without a gritty texture. Simply apply the Cooling Enzyme scalp treatment to dry and unwashed hair. Gently massage the product into the scalp, wait 2-3 minutes and rinse. Follow up with your favorite shampoo and conditioner.

It’s Peel Season: Find the Chemical Peel Fit for You

Peel the love this holiday season with winter’s favorite spa treatment. Chemical peels are a fabulous way to hit “reset” on the complexion, and while you can opt in for a peel anytime of the year, the cooler months are definitely an optimal time to schedule this spa exclusive appointment.

New to the Facial Peel game? COSMEDIX is here to answer some of your burning peel skincare questions and give you a breakdown of which COSMEDIX peel treatments we recommend for your skin!

So, what is a Chemical Peel?

Let’s start with the basics. A chemical peel is skincare technique performed ONLY by a trained aesthetician (no trying this at home, kids). The goal of this specific peel treatment is to help remove dry skin and impurities on the outermost layer of skin to help reveal the smooth, supple skin underneath.

What is the downtime after treatment?

Well, that depends. Peels are available in different levels, with lower level peels usually requiring little to no downtime. On the other hand, high level peels can cause moderate to severe skin flaking, which is why clients are instructed to stay out of the sun and follow a strict skin care routine. This is also why winter is often the best time to book your chemical peel!

Consult your aesthetician or find a spa near you to find the level that is right for you. COSMEDIX chemical peels range from low Level 1 to a moderate Level 2!

What are the benefits of a chemical peel?

Every peel is different, but common benefits include a brighter complexion, smoother skin, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, a more even skin tone and radiant-looking skin. You can always choose a peel that addresses specific skincare concerns for a more “targeted” result. What’s not to love?

COSMEDIX Chemical Peel Recommendations:

For the Peel Beginner: Pomegranate Peel (Level 1)

If you’re a newbie to the game of peels, the low-level Pomegranate Peel is the perfect place to start. Made with Fruit Enzymes and Lactic Acid, this antioxidant-rich treatment works with all skin types to help lift away dry skin and brighten the complexion. And, the best part? Unlike its stronger counterparts, this gentle peel works at the surface level so that you can carry on with your day while experiencing minimal skin peeling.

For Blemish-Prone Skin: Clarity Peel (Level 1 + Retinol)

Give skin a moment of Clarity with this Exfoliating and Clarifying Treatment. If stubborn blemishes and congested skin are your skincare concerns, then this Level 1 Peel with retinol was made for you. Formulated specifically for blemish-prone and oily skin types, Clarity features two chemical exfoliants—Lactic Acid and Salicylic Acid—and Vitamin A to help refine and clarify the look of skin as it washes away pore-clogging impurities.

For Uneven Skin Tone and Texture: Deep Sea Peel (Level 2)

Uneven skin tone and texture is a common skincare concern that can be addressed with the proper facial peel. If smooth skin is what you seek, ask your aesthetician about the COSMEDIX Deep Sea Peel. This polishing treatment is part chemical exfoliant, part manual scrub that helps resurface the complexion while improving the look of uneven skin.

For the Peel Pro: Timeless (Level 2 + Retinol)

Made for the peel expert, Timeless Peel is COSMEDIX highest level peel that helps dramatically improve the look of skin. With 30% AGP Retinol Complex and 30% Lactic Acid, this age-defying peel contains  the highest level of potent ingredients to encourage healthy skin renewal while improving the look of wrinkles and pigmentation. Powerful results may include mild to moderate skin flaking.
