As we age, the process of cell regeneration slows down. This means the body is slower to shed skin cells and regenerate new ones. Exfoliating regularly assists in revealing radiant skin, keeps the skin functioning at its peak, allows the skin to absorb products easier such as moisturiser and can even reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I recently tested the Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel by Philosophy as I’m a big fan of acid peels and was impressed by the results after just one treatment.
Product Name: Philosophy – The Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel
What it does: This at-home peel works to improve visible signs of ageing such as wrinkles, loss or firmness and enlarged pores. Utilising a two-step approach, this product combines the micro-exfoliation of a peel with the restorative benefits of an overnight sleep mask.In clinical and self-assessment studies this product showed:
74% showed an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after one use
88% of women tested showed a reduction in pore size after three uses in a week
100% demonstrated an improvement in firmness after four weeks
The leave on peel solution features glycolic, lactic and salicylic acids to accelerate the cell renewal process while the youth extending night gel utilises ingredients such as Echinacea, Oat Kernal Extract and biomimetic peptides to soothe the skin and aid skin regeneration.
Results: After just one treatment I noticed a difference. Overnight, my skin looked smoother and I noticed a reduction in pore size specifically on my nose. My skin looked smoother with fine lines diminished. My skin tone appeared even and radiant. With continued use I noticed a reduction in lines on my forehead and my skin felt plump. After each treatment, I also used Philosophy’s Miracle Worker Overnight cream to speed up the results.
How to use: In the evening, saturate one of the enclosed cotton pads with the solution and wipe over cleansed skin. Do not rinse. Wait for 2–3 minutes then gently massage the soothing gel into the skin and leave on overnight. For best results, this product should be used 2-3 times per week.
