Peel, Treat, Repeat
The MECCA view:This duo, Alpha Beta® Extra Strength Daily Peel and a FULL SIZE Advanced Retinol + Ferulic Texture Renewal Serum, is a powerful derm-formulated regimen for a smooth, clear complexion. Skin perfecting ingredients Retinol and AHA/BHAs dramatically improve the look of fine lines, blemishes, and uneven texture.
Key ingredients:Retinol: A vitamin A derivative, Retinol stimulates cellular proliferation from the basal layer to rejuvenate skin ultimately smoothing texture and increasing dermal thickness. It stimulates collagen synthesis to reverse the signs of photoaging, improving fine lines and wrinkles while simultaneously repairing UV-induced free radical damage. Retinol also serves as both a sebostatic and tyrosinase inhibitor to reduce the over production of blemish-causing sebum and fade dark spots.
Bakuchiol: Derived from the babchi plant, this retinol-like active is the first to clinically demonstrate the same level of efficacy as retinol without redness or irritation. It stimulates the production of collagen while down-regulating the activity of collagen digesting enzymes, promoting skin plumpness. Like retinol, it increases cell turnover to diminish signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and photodamage. By targeting similar cellular pathways as retinol that are known to replenish the skin barrier, bakuchiol restores and seals skin hydration.
Ferulic Acid: Found in all plant leaves and cell walls, Ferulic Acid protects against UV-induced free radical damage that contributes to aging by inhibiting enzymes that increase free radical generation. It counteracts the potentially irritating effects of retinol while boosting its anti-aging benefits.
Glycolic Acid: reduces visibile signs of aging
Lactic Acid: A naturally-occurring alpha hydroxy acid that helps speed up cell turnover/cell renewal
Malic Acid: Promotes cell renewal; fights wrinkles while exfoliating & moisturizing
Citric Acid: Helps speed up cell renewal
Mandelic Acid: Supplements the anti-aging benefits of glycolic acid; possesses anti-irritation & antibacterial properties
Salicylic Acid: A beta hydroxy acid that exfoliates, reducing the number of pore blockages while building elastin & collagen
Willow Bark Extract: Clears pores & also exfoliates; natural alternative to salicylic acid
Chamomile: An anti-inflammatory that neutralizes skin irritation & soothes
Made without:Parabens, sulfate and phthalate.
