Skincare Saturdays - A Quick Fix For Dull Skin

One of my favorite 'quick fix' skincare products is the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel. Not only will you start to see results right away, but the results will continue and improve with continued use. They also have a 'regular' and 'gentle' version, but I've used the extra strength and it's never irritated my skin.

What it is:
This 2 step treatment is for daily use. It has a seven acid combination that works to rejuvenate the skin to uncover a brighter, smoother and healthier complexion. The treatments come in individually wrapped, pre-soaked pads for easy use.

What it does:
The 2 step treatment works together to provide exfoliation in Step One, and nourishment and balance in Step Two. Your skin will immediately look and feel refreshed and your following skincare routine will be more effective. Expect to see improvement in skin texture, radiance and a diminishment of fine lines with continued use.

Who it's for: 
This treatment works on all skin types and is targeted to those looking to treat rough, dry or dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne-prone, breakout skin.

How to use: 
Once a day, apply Step One pad to clean, dry skin, using circular motions. Continue application until pad feels dry. Wait two minutes for the acids to activate on your skin and follow with pad in Step Two to neutralize, using the same technique as before. Do not rinse after either step or use products containing alcohol. Make sure to avoid contact with eyes and use sunscreen daily to help prevent photo-aging.
