Does your skin need a spring “pick-me-up”?

Does your skin need a spring “pick-me-up”?

Spring is a time of renewal- we can now ‘hit refresh’ and look forward to warmer temps, a longer duration of sunlight and fresh spring blooms. As we enter this new season, it’s a great time to exfoliate the skin, too – shed the old, dead skin cells to make room for the new, glowing and healthy layers.

You may have found that after we drag ourselves out of the dead of winter, skin is looking dull and your normal products don’t seem to be working. Breaking out? Your makeup application looking uneven? Moisturizer seems to be laying on the skin? These best-selling Elemental Herbology Perfect Balance Multi-Acid Pads will do the trick instantly!

With 5% Glycolic Acid + 5% Natural Fruit Acids, this treatment is formulated to gently exfoliate all skin, even sensitive. You will see and feel visible results immediately, because these simple little pads remove dead skin, leftover makeup and daily toxins that result in your skin looking more radiant, even and assist your serums and moisturizers to absorb better into the skin.

How do I add Alpha Hydroxy Pads into my routine?

The most appropriate time to use an AHA is during your evening routine, right before bed.

  • Cleanse your skin as normal
  • Apply your AHA treatment
  • Wait a few minutes
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY, apply a Moisturizer: now that all the dead skin cells have been sloughed off, you’ve revealed a new, healthy layer of skin that needs proper nourishment.

How often do I use them?

It all depends on the skin needs.

Breakouts and oily skin? You can use daily for 3-4weeks (or until the jar is finished)

Other skin types range from daily use (normal skin) to less frequent. Don’t overdo it, if skin is sensitive or fragile, this can lead to unwanted skin issues. When you skin looks renewed you can use less frequent, such as 1-2x per week.

Our bonus skin renewal tip:

follow with a Probiotic product which balances and rehydrates the skin, resulting in more radiance. We love the new Elemental Herbology Perfect Balance Probiotic Serum which also contains Polyglutamic Acid, known to hold 4x more moisture in the skin than Hyaluronic Acid!


Caution:  Avoid direct sun exposure when using Alpha Hydroxy Acids and use a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher.
