The AOX Micro Peel features an unprecedented blend of glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and retinol in one formula. The ultimate radiance booster, we put this powerful combination of antioxidants with retinol to help remove free radical accumulations that happen from lack of sleep, poor diet, stress, and skin’s #1 enemy: environmental exposure. We’ve created this gentle, nightly-use peel to be used by every skin type and is a great addition to all beauty routines. The addition of a small amount of plant-based ceramides ensure maximum tolerance to the retinol with little to no downtime. This multi-talented facial treatment improves skin tone, smooths fine lines and wrinkles while restoring your complexion’s radiance.

How: After cleansing and toning, apply a thin veil to face, neck, and decollete. For your best glow, follow with an application of Daily Nutrition Facial Treatment Oil

When: Every evening after cleansing and toning.

Good to know: This radiance boosting treatment instantly rejuvenates, revealing fresher, younger skin. We recommend pairing the Micro Peel with the Daily Nutrition Face Oil. This will nourish and protect your newly exposed skin, providing radiance that only the healthiest skin can obtain.

What it is

A game-changing nightly treatment serum that combines anti-aging retinol with smoothing and toning glycolic and salicylic acid. Plant-based ceramides help reinforce skin’s barrier to help reduce downtime and the adjustment period to retinol. This serum softens fine lines and wrinkles, smoothes rough skin texture, and provides even skin tone. Skin is visibly transformed after as little as 14 days without the typical downtime or “I hate it phase” associated with other retinol formulas.

Why it works

Each day, our skin is exposed to elements that damage our skin barrier. This oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids to calm, rebalance, heal, and moisturize skin.

1% Retinol: This potent dose of retinol accelerates cell turnover, helps boost healthy collagen production, resulting in firmer, brighter, smoother skin with softer lines and wrinkles, minimized pores, and a bright, radiant glow.

5.5% Glycolic/Salicylic Acid Blend: This unprecedented blend of AHA and BHA’s in the same formula as retinol helps to refine rough texture and pores while helping skin detox.

4% CoQ10: Reduces redness, inflammation, and imbalance in skin while boosting cellular energy.

1.5% Plant-based Ceramides: Replenish and repair damaged skin barrier. Improve tolerance to retinol.
