We have designed Smooth Out to give your skin a clinically proven collagen-boosting amount of AHAs and, at the same time, to be as gentle as possible.
The 12% glycolic and lactic acid combination removes the dead skin cells gently but effectively from the surface of the skin and gives you a healthy glow overnight.
With ongoing use, it boosts the skin’s own collagen production, smooths fine lines, fades hyperpigmentation and boosts the effectiveness of treatments and moisturizers used afterwards.
We combined the AHAs with Nopal Cactus Extract that’s designed to reduce potential neurosensory irritation caused by higher amounts of alpha hydroxy acids and we also added extra humectants to boost the water-binding ability of lactic and glycolic acid.
Whom is this for?
Everyone! Well almost. :) Unless your skin is very sensitive or prone to redness (in this case take a look at Calm Down) Smooth Out should work.
How to use it?
It’s an ideal first step after cleansing your skin.
Use it as a toner, either with a cotton pad or pour it into the hands and pat it on as men do with after-shave. Avoid using around the eye area!
You can use Smooth Out from once a week to once a day depending on your skin’s level of tolerance. You might experience some light tingling after application, which is normal and will go away soon. You can reduce the tingling sensation if you apply the product to completely dry skin. Do not use other exfoliants or scrubs at the same time as Smooth Out.
IMPORTANT: AHA acids make the skin more sensitive to the sun. Use a good SPF in the morning!
Glycolic Acid – The most proven and most researched AHA that not only gently exfoliates the surface of the skin but also boosts skin’s own collagen production and fades brown spots.
Lactic Acid – The second most researched AHA, that is not only a gentle but effective exfoliating acid but is also a fantastic humectant.
Nopal Cactus + Yeast Extract – A unique combination of cactus and yeast extracts containing low molecular weight peptides, carbohydrates and bound minerals designed to reduce neurosensory irritation caused by the application of high amounts of AHAs.
Galactoarabinan – A natural polysaccharide extracted from the larch tree that reduces Trans-epidermal Water Loss as well as increasing the efficacy of skin exfoliants.
Panthenol – A classic skincare ingredient that is a reliable soothing, moisturising and skin-protecting agent.
Xylitylglucoside + Anhydroxylitol + Xylitol – Sugar based humectant trio that increases the skin’s water-binding capacity and strengthens the skin’s barrier.
Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer – A new generation, cross-linked hyaluronic acid whose water binding ability is several times greater than the already amazing water-binding ability of hyaluronic acid which helps keep the skin nicely moisturized.
