Inefficient skin renewal caused by the aging process and conditions such as dehydration and acne lead to dull, rough and unheatlhy-looking skin. Physical scrubs and chemical exfoliants such as glycolic acid exfoliate the skin, but they often disrupt the skin's barrier causing excessive dryness, irritation and compromising the skin's ability to protect itself. SkinCeuticals revolutionary resurfacing and replenishing serum, Retexturing Activator, surpasses the results of a 20% daily glycolic treatment while simultaneously reinforcing the skin's barrier for healthier, more radiant skin. Retexturing Activator harnesses two polar mechanisms - exfoliation and hydration - to activate the skin's regeneration response, visibly diminishing surface lines and transforming skin's fabric into a smoother, softer texture. Potent without harsh side effects, Retexturing Activator is formulated in an efficient, oil-free delivery system suitable for all skin types.
