Did you know that we require more exfoliation as we age? That’s because the rate at which our skin makes new, fresh skin cells slows down as we get older. Consequently, this results in old, dead skin cells clinging to our skin’s surface for longer, leaving our skin feeling rough and looking dull and devitalised.
Exfoliation for Skin Ageing
Anyone who is after a smoother, clearer and healthier skin can benefit from exfoliation, but especially someone who is experiencing skin ageing. Exfoliation boosts a sluggish skin cell turnover and removes dull cells on the skin’s surface. This helps soften fine lines and wrinkles and reveal a more radiant skin underneath. In addition, any skincare applied afterwards, such as your high-performance serums and moisturisers, will be better absorbed by your skin giving you maximum results.
Experience Professional Exfoliation at Home
Dermalogica’s NEW Rapid Reveal Peel from the advanced AGE smart system provides the ultimate at home exfoliation. This professional grade at-home peel has been clinically proven to enhance skin radiance and visibly reduce fine lines.
The Skin Smoothing Mix
The NEW Rapid Reveal Peel is Dermalogica’s most powerful at home exfoliant and boasts a blend of skin resurfacing Hydroxy Acids and Enzymes. A 10% concentration of Lactic Acid plays a starring role, helping to not only boost cell turnover and smooth the skin, but brighten and hydrate it too. These brightening proprieties are supercharged by Rice Bran Extract which gently exfoliates whilst promoting an even skin tone - plus it has antioxidant powers. Next up is Caviar Lime Extract, a native Australian fruit that delivers a burst in exfoliation and antioxidants to fight the signs of premature skin ageing. Another key skin smoother in the mix is Pumpkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate; this gentle exfoliating enzyme delivers fresher, brighter skin without irritation.
Each Rapid Reveal kit contains 10 individual treatment tubes, plus a black travel bag and suction cup so you can keep your Rapid Reveal Peel tubes in a visible area to remind you to keep on track of your treatments.
Achieving Your Most Radiant Skin
It’s recommended that this new advanced exfoliating treatment be used once week, ideally in the evening. You can kick start skin radiance by using one tube of Rapid Reveal Peel every day for three days, prior to transitioning to using one Rapid Reveal Peel tube every week.
One tube of Rapid Reveal Peel should be used after cleansing. Twist open the tube and work over your face, neck and chest, using light fingertip circular massage movements. Rapid Reveal Peel can be massaged from three to seven minutes, depending on your individual skin. Remove with cool water or a cold, damp towel, followed by a generous dose of your moisturiser.
Exfoliation makes the skin more sensitive to the sun, so be sure to wear a sunscreen during the day to keep skin protected and prevent against accelerated ageing. Dermalogica’s Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50 is the perfect companion to the Rapid Reveal Peel. This 2 in 1 age fighting moisturiser and sunscreen intensely hydrates and is full of antioxidants and skin firming actives.
The Clinical Results are in!
In a clinical study on people between 18 and 65 years of age, Rapid Reveal Peel was shown to increase cell turnover by 44%. By comparison, Gentle Cream Exfoliant, one of Dermalogica's strongest retail exfoliants, increased cell turnover by 27%. Measurements for this study were done after 13 applications of the product, which equates to a 3-day kick-start phase, followed by weekly use for 10 weeks.
In a clinical study on people between 35 and 65 years of age, Rapid Reveal Peel was shown to enhance skin radiance after just 5 days, and visibly reduce fine lines after 8 weeks.
Both tests were carried out at an accredited third party testing lab.
