Since the skin is in layers and damage can exist in layers, it is important to use a good method of exfoliation along with copper peptides for improved results.
AM: After cleansing the skin, apply a light amount of your favorite copper-peptide product. The application should be so light that it just barely covers the area
without leaving it excessively wet or damp.
PM: After cleansing the skin, follow up with a light application of Exfol Cream (a 2% hydroxy acid).
HOW IT'S DIFFERENT
Cream contains 2% salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that
helps exfoliate dead skin cells and loosen damaged skin proteins,
uncovering new energized skin that glows.
Beta Hydroxy Acids, which
are soluble in oil, penetrate the skin better than Alpha Hydroxy
Acids (AHAs) such as glycolic acid.
Due to their solubility and
efficient exfoliating action, BHAs are ideal both for aging and oily skin. In aging skin, BHAs diminish the appearance of
wrinkles and discoloration, especially when used together with copper
In oily, blemish-prone skin, BHAs clear up your complexion and
pores to help achieve flawless, blemish-free skin.
also aids the penetration of copper peptides that mimic the biology
of young skin to maintain its healthy appearance and luminous beauty.
addition to salicylic acid, this cream contains squalane, nature's
perfect emollient that softens skin to make it silky and smooth.

a powerful antioxidant blend, including plant carotenoid lycopene and
lutein as well as co-enzyme Q10 and mixed tocopherols, soothes the
skin and replenishes its own antioxidant reserve.
Copper peptides work well in conjunction with beta hydroxy acids such as salicylic acid.
- 2% salicylic acid works to gently exfoliate skin
- Aids in a more refreshed appearance and skin tone
A leading dermatologist, Dr. Albert Kligman, believes that BHAs (in
particular salicylic) at concentrations of about 2% are better than
AHAs for anti-aging.
Professor Kligman is well
known in dermatology for his research on the anti-aging actions of
retinoic acid (Retin-A).
BHA hydroxy acid (salicylic) helps to loosen damaged skin proteins.
