How to use an exfoliant
Dispense a few drops and smooth over face and neck after cleansing and toning. Do not rinse.
Start slowly: Apply every other day and note skin's response. Then use up to twice daily. For daytime, always finish with a sunscreen rated SPF 30 or above. For nighttime, follow with the rest of your routine.
Sun protection advice when using any AHA exfoliant: This product contains alpha hydroxy acids, ingredients that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Always apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater every day. When outdoors, wear protective clothing whenever possible, seek shade, and avoid prolonged sun exposure.
We wanted to create a product that harnessed the integrated power of multiple acids. The idea was to formulate a product with acids that have different molecular sizes and that each work a little differently on skin. Here’s a breakdown:
Glycolic Acid – penetrates skin rapidly and stimulates collagen production.
Lactic Acid – an exfoliant that also enhances skin hydration.
Malic Acid – promotes surface exfoliation and has some antioxidant properties.
Tartaric Acid – assists the exfoliation process. Also contributes to buffer the system to help maintain the pH.
We recommend using this product alone after your toner.
In general, a BHA exfoliant is more suitable for rosacea-prone skin types than an AHA exfoliant because of its anti-inflammatory properties. However, this Resist Anti-Aging 10% AHA Exfoliant also contains 0.5% BHA (salicylic acid) and other beneficial anti-irritants to help soothe skin. So, if you have rosacea-prone skin and you want to boost your exfoliation this is a great option.
It is safe to use this product if you are lactose intolerant because intolerance occurs within the digestive system (small intestine). Lactic acid absorbed by the skin should not affect the digestive system in anyway.
