The sun is responsible for 90%- 98% of aging, causing wrinkles, lines, hyper-pigmentation (“age spots”) and loss of natural moisture and elasticity. Beta hydroxy acid is also known as salicylic acid and occurs naturally in wintergreen leaves, sweet birch and selected plants. This acid can aid in improving the appearance and condition of the skin. In fact, most peels will help combat the effects of the sun by removing cellular surface layers of the skin and revealing the underlaying skin. We recommend using an SPF 30+ when you will be outside or exposed to the sun.
