Essential Exfoliating Serum FAQ
Why do you recommend starting with The Progressive Peel instead of the Essential Exfoliating Cream?
The Progressive Peel is the optimal way to take advantage of BeautyRx exfoliants. It includes the entire range of exfoliants, and acclimates your skin to maximum glycolic exfoliation, without irritation. We only recommend starting with the Essential Exfoliating Cream if the Essential Exfoliating Serum causes irritation in your skin, even after applying a moisturizer.
Do I have to use this product with another BeautyRx exfoliant?
While the Essential Exfoliating Cream offers amazing results on its own, it offers even better exfoliation when used in conjunction with other BeautyRx exfoliants and in the progressive technique of The Progressive Peel.
Do I need to use a moisturizer after using the Essential Exfoliating Cream?
Whether you use a moisturizer after applying the Essential Exfoliating Cream is up to you. Some people find that their skin is comfortable without use of an additional moisturizer, while others want to add more hydration on top.
How do I decide if I should use the Essential Exfoliating Cream or the Essential Exfoliating Serum?
The Essential Exfoliating Cream is for people with the driest skin who need hydration during exfoliation. We find that most people, even those with dry skin, are able to use the Essential Exfoliating Serum because it's a gentle, start-strength glycolic treatment. Some people also prefer the Serum used in conjunction with a moisturizer, or even just using the Serum as part of The Progressive Peel.
