Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel
These peel pads have completely transformed my skin. My skin tone is much more even and my overall texture has totally improved. If you're worried about harshness, I have sensitive skin and I haven't noticed any negative effects. They're absolutely worth the price. I use them every night after cleansing and then follow it with my serums.
My boss gave me one packette of these bad boys, and the game was forever changed. You have 2 wipes - the first exfoliates your skin and the second then moisturizes. And I’m sure a bunch of other scientific stuff but all I care about is how SOFT and RADIANT my skin is afterwards. It’s seriously so smooth and my complexion isn’t as dull. You can use them daily but I use one about once a week— and probably wouldn’t use more than twice for my skin specifically. These pads are amazing and I don’t see them ever leaving my skin routine.
When I started my #drdennisgrossskincare journey, the first box I ever purchased was the Alpha beta ultra gentle peels. Even though I had already used acids in the past, I had done my research, and decided to go ultra sensitive, so I don't miss on this #drdennisgross experience by shocking my skin and having it react to the extra strength peel.
I think this is the best (and recommended) way to go with acids.
✨I had gotten the smaller box, containing 14 treatments.
One treatment is presented in two steps.
✨Step one is labeled: exfoliate and smooth. It is the one that contains the main acids:
✨Lactic acid: works only on the surface of the skin. It exfoliates by weakening the bonds (desmosomes) that hold the dead skin cells together, therefore letting them gently shred away. It also happens to be an amazing humectant for the skin. Not only is it hydrophilic (looooooves attracting water molecules), it also nourishes the skin by stimulating the production of oils and lipids while reducing loss of water.
Basically, you get bright, glowing, supple, hydrated AND plumped skin from this little friend alone.
✨Mandelic acid: not only does it do almost everything #lacticacid does, it also stimulates collagen production, for that plumped looking skin.
✨Step two is the calming soothing neutraliser.
