1. What is ARTISTRY® intensive skincare renewing peel
ARTISTRY intensive skincare renewing peel is a targeted, at-home treatment that delivers benefits comparable to a professional chemical peel. Formulated with a naturally derived mushroom enzyme, it works with the skin to reveal a softer, smoother, more radiant complexion in just eight minutes.
2. What does intensive skincare renewing peel
add to the ARTISTRY product portfolio?
Many women have been seeking professional skincare treatments such as a chemical peel. ARTISTRY intensive skincare renewing peel meets that need and delivers benefits comparable to a professional treatment in an at-home peel with a much gentler process.
Additionally, we know that exfoliation is a key step in any skincare routine. Used twice weekly, intensive skincare renewing peel
provides a new level of gentle exfoliation that helps reveal fresher, healthier-looking skin.
3. What makes this peel different?
Peels you might find at a department store typically require several steps. First, you apply an exfoliating product, and then you apply a neutralizing product in order to stop the process. This can make it too easy to either under-peel and not get optimal results by stopping the process too soon or over-peel, which can cause irritation, inflammation, and downtime for your skin to recover.
Intensive skincare renewing peel
takes the guesswork out of the peel process with a one-step application that delivers benefits comparable to a professional peel. It takes a completely unique approach to retexturing the skin – using an exclusive mushroom enzyme to gently remove the surface of rough skin layers without harming the fresh luminous skin below. Intensive skincare renewing peel
is also unique because it naturally adjusts to the skin and actually knows when to turn itself off, so you’ll get optimal results every time you use it without the risk or without any recovery time.
4. What is an enzyme?
Enzymes are natural proteins. They work by increasing the rate of reactions in the cells to improve the functioning and performance of the skin. With intensive skincare renewing peel
, that means the unique mushroom enzyme works with your skin, breaking down protein bonds that hold dead cells at the surface and helping your skin improve its own natural cellular turnover.
5. What makes the enzyme found in intensive skincare renewing peel
The enzyme in intensive skincare renewing peel
is unique in that it adjusts to the skin’s pH levels. First, the outer layer of the skin has a natural pH of 4.5. The inner layers are made up of living skin cells with a higher pH of 5, 6, and 7.
When intensive skincare renewing peel
is applied to the skin, its mushroom enzyme reacts to these different pH levels. It’s very effective on the surface where the pH is 4.5, but becomes inactive at a pH of 5.5 or higher. That means that it helps remove dead skin cells at the surface but then automatically shuts itself off as soon as it’s exposed to the healthy, living skin cells with a higher pH. This helps avoid the risk of over-exfoliating.
6. How is intensive skincare renewing peel
different from other ARTISTRY products that provide skin exfoliation, and how can I use these products together?
Use of daily exfoliation products like TIME DEFIANCE® Skin Refinishing Lotion and essentials alpha hydroxy serum plus
will help boost and maintain the results of intensive skincare renewing peel
. However, you should stop using the ARTISTRY Microdermabrasion System or ARTISTRY essentials polishing scrub
while you’re using the peel. Within one to two days, you can start adding these products back into your skincare routine.
– pick one for daily use*
- ARTISTRY TIME DEFIANCE Skin Refinishing Lotion: Natural and gentle exfoliation with oats, not acids. Safe for sensitive skin. Results improve over time.
- ARTISTRY essentials alpha hydroxy serum plus: Uses alpha hydroxy acids for optimal effectiveness and oat extract to soothe. Results improve over time.
– Pick one for use twice weekly
- ARTISTRY essentials polishing scrub: Removes just the top layer of the dead skin cells. Immediate results.
- ARTISTRY intensive skincare renewing peel: Removes the dead skin layers on the surface until the peel neutralizes with the pH of live skin cells. Instant and long-term benefits comparable to a professional chemical peel.
*Do not use these products the day you use the occasional-use products.
7. My skin tingles after applying intensive skincare renewing peel
. Is that because my skin is sensitive? Is this OK?
A tingling sensation is expected for some users, typically those with more sensitive skin. This tingling is not cause for concern and is a normal sensation to experience when using renewing peel
. However, if the tingling causes skin irritation, wash off the product and discontinue use.
8. How does intensive skincare renewing peel
fit in with the other ARTISTRY skincare systems and treatment products?
ARTISTRY intensive skincare renewing peel
is the first product launched within the “intensive skincare
” line. This line will feature targeted anti-aging skincare treatments for anyone seeking the benefits of professional treatments without the cost and risk.
also offers an additional approach to anti-aging skincare not currently covered by the existing product portfolio and complements the other ARTISTRY products.
9. What is the difference between intensive renewing peel
& TIME DEFIANCE® Intensive Repair Serum and how do we recommend they use both products?
The main difference between these two products is where they work. ARTISTRY Intensive Repair Serum works beneath the dead surface skin to help new healthy skin be more productive - which, in turn, creates all the amazing results of Intensive Repair Serum (261% improvement in clarity, 99% visible reduction in fine lines, 83% improvement in smoothness). It is only used 4 times per years because it is so effective, that its results last long after the 14 night treatment.
Intensive skincare renewing peel
works on the very top layers of dead skin cells. It dissolves the protein bonds that hold this dead skin on the surface resulting in a dull, and rough complexion associated with aging skin. Intensive skincare renewing peel
actually stops working when it reaches live, healthy skin - which is precisely where the Intensive Repair Serum starts working!
If using both products together, it is recommended to start a 14 night Intensive Repair Serum treatment AFTER a full 6 weeks of using the intensive skincare renewing peel
. This will allow Intensive Repair Serum to penetrate the skin much easier and will ensure the absolute optimal results.
