    Brightening Peel
    with 34% Glycolic Acid

    This high-concentration, allover brightening peel with 34% Glycolic Acid helps address hyperpigmentation to reveal visibly brighter, more even-toned skin and a silky-soft texture.

    Dark Spot Peel
    with 13.6% TCA

    This highly potent, highly concentrated Trichloroacetic Acid peel lifts away the appearance of individual dark spots to reveal visibly more unified, even-toned skin. With precision accuracy, it targets specific dark spots to give you total control.

    Daily Dark Spot Intercept 
    with Subtopical Brightening Technology™
    Reveals renewed skin clarity and brightness by intercepting the development of hyperpigmentation before it even begins. Brightening IntidesTM improve radiance for a more even-toned complexion, providing cumulative results as you use it.

    Daily Renewal Cream 
    with Intides™
    This powerful daily moisturizer firms, boosts radiance, and hydrates skin as it helps prevent visible signs of aging. With our Firming IntidesTM, it is potent enough to deliver visible results, yet gentle enough to use with treatment regimens — including the Ourself Peels.

    Mineral Sunscreen 
    Broad Spectrum SPF 50 with Intides™ 
    100% mineral protecting power with Zinc Oxide, plus antioxidants to help defend against pollution and blue light damage. Daily use of sunscreen is critical in protecting your results after a peel, and helping to prevent future hyperpigmentation.

  • Key Ingredients

    Glycolic Acid: Brightening Peel includes a 34% concentration of this powerful alpha hydroxy acid. This delivers intense even skin tone and texture refinishing benefits. Skin looks brighter, smoother and revitalized. It can help reduce the appearance of pores.

    13.6% Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA): TCA chemical peels are used to improve evening of skin tone. Dark Spot Peel was designed as a superficial chemical peel to reduce the chances of post inflammatory hyperpigmentation or scarring, two complications commonly associated with stronger TCA peels.

    Brightening Intides™: Our patent-pending Intelligent Peptides intercept the overproduction of new melanin—which, when unchecked, can result in the appearance of dark spots weeks or even years later. These IntidesTM effectively reduce the look of uneven hyperpigmentation.

    Firming Intides™: Specifically selected peptides that are known to help skin feel firmer and more flexible. They also help improve the texture of the skin and address multiple visible signs of aging.

  • Usage

    Layering the two Ourself peels is safe and effective—and highly recommended. Use the Brightening Peel all over, then follow with the Dark Spot Peel on targeted areas.

    If you are new to using peels, we suggest trying one or the other on its own first, to see how your skin responds.

    Because of the ingredients used in the Peels, we strongly recommend that you follow all application steps, including pre- and post-peel, as provided below. This will help ensure the best results and best skin comfort.

    Please store the Brightening Peel at room temperature before and between uses.

    PREP: How to Prepare for Your Peels
    For 2 weeks prior to your treatment, apply Daily Dark Spot Intercept followed by Daily Renewal Cream and Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 (AM). At night, repeat the application of Daily Dark Spot Intercept and Daily Renewal Cream. When outdoors, reapply Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 every 2-3 hours.

    These steps prime the skin, creating the ideal condition to apply Brightening Peel and ensuring the best post-peel results.

    You should not use Brightening Peel for at least 2 weeks, and preferably 4 weeks, after using a strong peel or facial treatment containing AHAS/BHAS or retinoid/retinol, including at-home and in-office procedures, to allow your skin to fully recover.

    PEEL: What to Do on Treatment Day
    Use the provided Accessory Kit which contains gauze pads, dropper and cap.

    Step 1: Pull hair completely off face. Cleanse skin using cleansers that do not contain acids. Put on gloves and sweep pre-peel alcohol wipe over targeted spot(s).

    Step 2: Open the Brightening Peel vial by pushing up on the thin plastic cap, positioning your thumb at the base of the arrows. This will break the foil safety seal in the center. Continue pulling in the direction of the arrows and twist to remove the rest of the foil seal. Carefully remove the inner stopper.

    Step 3: Fold the provided gauze pad into quarters and use 1-2 droppers full of the Brightening Peel solution on the pad. Evenly distribute the solution from the center of the pad to the edges. Make sure that the gauze is not dripping.

    Step 4: Apply one layer of the Peel, using a single passage over skin, working in this order and avoiding eye area entirely: 1) Forehead 2) Lower face (around the mouth, avoiding lips) 3) Nose area 4) Cheeks (don't apply above your cheekbone)

    Step 5: After applying one complete layer, wait 3-5 minutes for the reaction to fully develop. A certain amount of sensation, including stinging and mild burning, is expected. Check your face for signs of redness. If redness and discomfort are moderate to severe, please do not apply another layer on the affected area.

    If you see minimal redness and discomfort, you can repeat the full-face application in Steps 3-5 for a total of 5-7 layers, depending on your skin sensitivity and experience with chemical peels. If you see a light frost occurring on the skin, don't apply any more layers.

    If you have extra solution in the bottle, pop on the extra cap and save for your next peel day. Enjoy your brighter skin for at least 2-4 weeks before you repeat Brightening Peel. Store upright in a cool, dark place, away from pets, children and jostling; (it's best if the opened solution doesn't spill as it can cause damage to some surfaces; we suggest leaving it home when you travel). Once opened, Brightening Peel should be used or carefully disposed of within 12 months. For disposal of leftover formula: turn the water faucet on and pour down the drain while water is running.

    Step 6: When you have finished with all the layers of Brightening Peel, move on to Dark Spot Peel. However, if your skin is irritated (visible redness and discomfort) after Brightening Peel, stop there and don't continue with Dark Spot Peel — skip to Step 8.

    To apply Dark Spot Peel, open the vial and dip the cotton swab into the solution until it is saturated. Before applying the Dark Spot Peel solution to the skin, make sure the cotton swab is not dripping.

    Step 7: Apply one layer of Dark Spot Peel solution to the selected spot(s), using the cotton swab. Moderate tingling/burning sensation may occur.

    Wait 3-5 minutes or until tingling/burning subsides, then re-apply a second layer of Dark Spot Peel solution.

    Repeat for a maximum of: three (3) layers if you are an inexperienced peel user; or, five (5) layers if you are an experienced peel user. This peel is self-neutralizing. Do not rinse off until the next time you plan to wash your face.

    If you see frosting, (which is what happens when the surface of your skin is exfoliated away by the acidic solution) while using Dark Spot Peel, stop and don't apply any more layers.

    Warning: Discontinue use if you experience irritation or burning.

    Step 8: Once you have applied the final layer of Dark Spot Peel and waited 3-5 minutes, apply Dark Spot Intercept and follow with Daily Renewal Cream as needed to keep the treated area well moisturized. Be sure to follow with Mineral Sunscreen prior to any sun exposure, and reapply Mineral Sunscreen every 2-3 hours when you are outdoors.

    If you have extra solution in the Brightening Peel bottle, pop on the extra cap and save for your next peel day. Enjoy your brighter skin for at least 2-4 weeks before you repeat Brightening Peel (or any peel). Store upright in a cool, dark place, away from pets, children and jostling (it's best if the opened solution doesn't spill as it can cause damage to some surfaces; we suggest leaving it home when you travel). Once opened, Brightening Peel should be used or carefully poured down the drain within 12 months.

    POST: How to Care For Skin After Your Peel
    Starting the evening immediately following the Peel treatment, apply both Daily Dark Spot Intercept and Daily Renewal Cream. Continue applying both products daily, AM and PM, as skin heals.

    It’s very important to use Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 in the daytime to protect skin and encourage results. Avoid sun exposure, or if you must be outside, reapply Mineral Sunscreen every 2-3 hours.

    Keeping the treated area moisturized is essential. Apply Daily Renewal Cream as needed to minimize dryness and redness.

    WHAT TO EXPECT
    Everyone's skin responds differently. The following skin reactions are all considered NORMAL:

    • Approximately 48-72 hours post-treatment, you may see visible darkening of the treated spot areas, and flaking/and or peeling of the treated spot areas may also occur. Do not physically or chemically exfoliate the treated areas.
    • You may experience visible flaking or peeling, especially 2-4 days post-treatment. DO NOT exfoliate or pull the skin on the treated area. It will come off on its own.
    • For best results, it is important to allow flaking skin to come off on its own within a couple of days.
    • You may not experience any visible skin peeling after the treatment. The product is still working.

    You'll see full results — brighter and silky-soft, clear and renewed skin — within 7-10 days.
