As skin ages, slower skin cell turnover can have a number of implications on how skin looks and feels. It can lead to dullness and clogged pores, as dead skin cells don’t exfoliate off the skin’s surface as productively, making it more difficult for ingredients to reach the skin’s surface and work effectively. For some adults, physical exfoliation can overwork the skin when used twice daily. On the other hand, chemical exfoliators can be more gentle loosening bonds between dead cells and allowing them to fall off.
The Salicylic Acid in Refining Acne Wash has 3 benefits:
- Gently sloughs off dead skin cells to improve uneven skin texture
- Increases skin’s radiance and clarity, while penetrating pores to clear adult acne blemishes
- Ensures the additional anti-aging ingredients that were in the Regimen formulas can work even harder than before.
