Winter will be here before we know it, and it’s important to be prepared to help prevent your skin from feeling the effects of the drops in both the mercury and humidity.

What tops your wish list of #skingoals? We’re pretty sure that brighter, softer, smoother, more even toned, and younger are right up there.

By sloughing off dull, dead, dry surface skin cells, tried and true acid peels can work wonders for all skin types. Exfoliation happens primarily on the outer layer of your skin, the stratum corneum.
