Night-time only, after the usual cleansing and before serum and/or moisturizer. Apply over the face and neck areas, either with a cotton pad or simply with palm of the hand. Do not rinse after application.
The use of sun protection in the morning is strongly advised as AHAs can pose a risk of sun burn, whenever skin is not properly shielded from UV exposure.
GLYCOLIC ACID 10%: Derived from cane sugar, glycolic acid is the smallest molecule in the group of AHA actives so it is able to penetrate the skin deeply and easily, making it the most effective AHA. Chemical peels using a high percentage of this acid and can be very effective when done safely and properly. An even better way to use glycolic acid is as a daily exfoliator, providing the same results as stronger peels but greater ease and safety … and often better results as the consistent application makes the effects cumulative.
MADECASSOSIDE®***: Present in all Age intelligence formulas, Madecassoside®, also known as “tiger herb,” isn’t merely the extract of the plant Centella asiatica, used by most brands, but a purified isolated fraction that soothes stress-induced conditions and rebalances the skin repair. Its presence in the Resurfacing Water formula helps to minimize minor irritations caused by the high % glycolic acid.

How frequently should I use the Resurfacing Water?
For best tolerance, begin applying every other night, working up to a nightly frequency after one or two weeks. Should you feel too much sensitivity on a nightly basis, you can scale back and simply use it every other night, or even less, according to tolerance / needs.
My skin showed sensitivity to AHA before. Should I use this product?
This formula contains a high-potency level of glycolic acid and for this reason should not be used by people who are too sensitive to AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) or have a history of intolerance to peeling products. Do not apply over wounds, inflammation, acne or rosacea areas.
