The harsh effects of winter can leave the skin feeling dry, irritated or flaky, causing breakouts, excessive oil or sensitive skin. Because the skin remains dull and dehydrated during winter months, spring skin requires ingredients and products that are formulated to deliver results and renewal. As you help your clients revitalize their skin, keep in mind that these ingredients will work with the skin at a cellular level to provide visible results.

Glycolic Acid

Glycolic Acid to Exfoliate

Glycolic Acid, a natural alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) derived from sugar cane, reduces corneocyte cohesion and corneum layer thickening where excess dead skin cells accumulate. This will help to lighten and brighten the effects of winter skin and promote healthy cell turnover, as dry skin and dead skin cells are removed with gentle chemical exfoliation.

Salicylic Acid to Fight Oil/Acne

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) that exfoliates the skin, but also reduces oiliness, acne and photo-aging. Salicylic acid softens accumulated keratin to help loosen dry skin and break down black heads and whiteheads to detoxify. Products with salicylic acid support the renewal of skin as it overcomes oily, or winter breakouts.

Calcium Ascorbate to Rebuild

Without stripping the barrier, calcium ascorbate plays a vital role in the building of collagen, tissue repair, synthesis of neurotransmitters and resistance to infection. Calcium ascorbate has also been linked to wrinkle reduction, lightening discolorations, and controlling the pH level of the skin, while protecting against deterioration caused by exposure to air. This ingredient is vital in supporting skin renewal, particularly as the skin has been exposed to the winter environments.

The harsh effects of winter can leave the skin feeling dry, irritated or flaky, causing breakouts, excessive oil or sensitive skin. 

Aloe Vera to Soothe

Aloe Vera is a potent healer, as it provides a protective layer that inhibits infection and soothes the skin. Aloe contains over 200 active compounds including vitamins A, B, C, and E enzymes, minerals, polysaccharides, and 18 of the 20 necessary amino acids for healthy cell proliferation. As the skin is in the renewal process, it is vital that it receives nutrients to soothe and calm irritated and sensitive skin that is recovering from the winter environment.


PC10 to Support

PC10 is a proprietary blend of ingredients that includes potent peptides, amino acids, natural antioxidants and pharmaceutical grade botanicals. This blend has been formulated to help correct the damage from free radical injury in addition to combating inflammation. PC10 supports the skin at a cellular level to receive the nutrients it needs for renewal as it recovers from the effects of winter.
