Optimistic Aries loves renewal. Any excuse to slough off the old and start fresh excites her, so Spring is her favorite season! Nothing escapes the cleansing onslaught, including her face. The winter months leave her skin dull and dry, so she battles back with Murad Environmental Shield® Intensive-C® Radiance Peel. From the first 10-minute treatment, glycolic acid exfoliates to remove dullness and improve skin texture. Vitamin C and Indian Fig join in to protect against free radical damage while enhancing skin clarity and luminosity, then Myrtle extract kicks up collagen production to boost resilience and elasticity. With her radiance level back at 10, watch out, closet! Lose your winter blues at www.Murad.com, www.Sephora.com and Sephora stores, www.Ulta.com and Ulta stores nationwide.
