Roads aren’t the only things that need periodic resurfacing. If you, like us, have the need to lose a little extra baggage in the form of dead skin cells but find your pocketbook lacking the $100+ for a visit to the dermatologist, StriVectin has created an at-home alternative to making your regenerated skin dreams a reality.
StriVectin LABS, the new line of professional strength treatments from the anti-aging specialists, has come out with an at-home 5-Minute Weekly Glycolic Peel. This two-step resurfacing treatment is filled with the highest concentration of actives that you can purchase without a prescription (cha-ching!). For $89 and five minutes of your time, you can walk away with weekly improvements in pore size, skin luminosity, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
We have been using this peel for over a month now and have reached the point of unhealthy obsession. Although at first blush the thought of doing a glycolic peel at home was a bit nerve wracking, the product is easy to use (meaning our visions of turning ourselves into The Hound by using a beauty treatment are slim to not gonna happen) and the effects are immediate. Here’s how it works:
STEP 1: Apply a quarter-sized amount of the Detoxifying Primer Step 1 to the face and leave it on for 1 minute. Do not rinse.
STEP 2: Apply a quarter-sized amount of the Activator Step 2 directly over the Detoxifying Primer and leave on for 3 to 5 minutes. Then remove with a lukewarm towel.
Annnnnd that’s it. Told you it was easy.
**TIP: If you have dry skin, we suggest using this product every two weeks instead of every week and switching off between it and a moisturizing mask so as to avoid dry patches.
