The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution is an extra-strength exfoliating peel that clears away dead skin cells and pore-cloggers to  brighten and clarify skin.
Anything but ordinary, this peeling solution unites AHAs and BHAs to offer deep exfoliation and help battle blemishes for improved skin radiance. Alpha hydroxyl acids (AHAs) exfoliate the skin’s topmost layer for a brighter, more even appearance, while beta hydroxyl acids (BHAs) exfoliate the skin more deeply to clear pore congestion – together, they radically improve the appearance of the skin’s texture and reduce the look of fine lines. Don’t be perturbed by the irritation often associated with acid use – The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution also features Tasmanian pepperberry to reduce inflammation, as well as a crosspolymer form of hyaluronic acid for comfort, Vitamin B5 to assist healing and black carrot as an antioxidant.

How to use:

Use ideally in the evening, no more frequently than twice per week. Clean face and wait for skin to dry. Do not use on wet skin. Apply evenly across face and neck using your fingertips. Leave on for no more than 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes both during application and rinse off. This low-viscosity solution is intended to be used as a masque. Do not leave on for longer than 10 minutes. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician. (Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Use only as directed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration.)

Notes: This formula contains a very high concentration of free acids. The Ordinary recommends use only if you are an experienced user of acid exfoliation and your skin is not sensitive.

Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note and other warnings in provided Directions.

Lixirskin Night Switch Retinol 1%Lixirskin11 11 Sale Favful

When it comes to skin care, LIXIRSKIN believes less is often more, advocating that too many active ingredients can confuse the skin and cause it to give up, or ‘get bored’ of the same product and reach a plateau stage. That’s why they’ve given us their ‘Night Switch’ range, which allows you to give your skin one active at a time, switching things up to keep those cells stimulated. With a blend of lactic, lactobionic and phytic acids, this blend exfoliates and dislodges dead, dulling cells to reveal more even-toned, radiant and plump skin.

Description:
Founder of LIXIRSKIN Colette Haydon (doctor in dermo-pharmacy and the mastermind formulator behind many of your favourite ‘cult’ products) is about to change the way you view skin care. A hero trio in her streamlined, fuss-free and seriously pretty millennial pink range, LIXIRSKIN’s Night Switch formulations are based around the idea that products with too many active ingredients confuse the skin, causing it to work too hard and give up, or become saturated and reach a ‘plateau stage’ where results are no longer delivered. To avoid this, introduce Night Switch PHA/AHA 10% (along with {Night Switch Retinol 1%} and {Night Switch BHA/AHA 10%}) into your regime. With a blend of three acids, this intelligent blend exfoliates and dislodges dead, dulling skin cells, reducing pigmentation and encouraging cell turnaround. Each acid offers a special benefit: lactic improves hydration, lactobionic reduces oxidative stress and phytic eliminates heavy metals to detoxify the skin. Ideal mixed with LIXIRSKIN’s {Universal Emulsion}, this will quickly leave your skin even-toned, radiant, plumper and softer, as well as minimising fine lines, pores and imperfections such as age spots over time. Use it for two weeks, allow the skin to rest for a few days, then swap to another ‘Night Switch’, before starting again with this. Your skin will love the variation!

How to use:
Apply one to two pumps to the affected area and follow with Universal Emulsion. Use at night for three weeks, always allow your skin to rest for a few days, then switch to another Night Switch, then start again with Night Switch BHA/AHA. You can also use as a mask, apply three pumps on dry skin, leave for ten minutes and rinse.

Unlike physical exfoliators that scrape off the surface of your skin, Solution gently sloughs dead cells away through chemical exfoliation, ungluing the problematic dead cells hiding and clogging healthy skin beneath. With daily use, expect cleared acne and blackheads, smaller pores, and reduced redness. Skin’s texture will be smoother and softer, and the fabled glow of balanced, healthy skin will be in full force. Solution contains a particular 10% blend of three acid groups: Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), and Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA). Acids are your friend.
