journalWhy We're Not All About The Hush-Hush at Heyday
A major team favorite, this chemical exfoliant employs papaya and pineapple enzymes to digest dead cells, smoothen the texture of your skin, and start to break down congestion. It's gentle, versatile, can be massaged on (we do this for you in facials!) and can be left on safely while you're doing things around the house.
We recommend this for
If you're used to using a scrub-based manual exfoliant and want to step into the world of chemical exfoliants (Remember, chemical here merely means exfoliation happens through a chemical change – the enzymes break down the glue that holds dead skin cells together by chemical action rather than physical 'scrubbing.')
It took me a long time to find an exfoliant that I really loved, but I finally found it. It’s so gentle that you can use it everyday if you want and leaves the skin bright and hydrated. It’s so easy to use. You can leave it on for up to 30 minutes and get other stuff done around the house or just relax. I even got my mom hooked and now she carries the whole Vital C line in her dermatology office.
How we use it
Apply product in a thin layer and leave on for five to 20 minutes, as recommended by your Skin Therapist. As with all leave-on products, start with less time and work your way up. Rinse with warm water.
What to expect
A mild tingle and/or a little bit of heat is normal for this product. The mask will not dry or crackle. Expect smooth skin upon washing off.
I use the bejesus out of this stuff. It’s so multifunctional. I adore it. It can be used as an exfoliant; you can put it in a mask, it’s so nice and gentle. You exfoliate and hydrate at the same time. If you say that you don't exfoliant because you're afraid of drying your skin out, this is the one for you.
