Mandelic Face & Body Peel in Academy Face & Body Clinics
What is the Mandelic Face & Body Peel?
Derived from Bitter Almonds, this Mandelic Peel utilizes AHA to quickly decongest, clarify and help control oil production. With proven anti-inflammatory ingredient Niacinamide and potent antioxidant Clove Oil, this peel improves surface congestion and reduces inflammation. Ideal for problematic and acne prone skins, this treatment can result in a smoother, brighter, and clearer complexion.
