SKINCEUTICALS Retexturing Activator
Serum. All skin types.
Retexturing Activator harnesses two polar mechanisms — exfoliation and hydration — to activate skin’s regeneration response, visibly diminishing surface lines and transforming skin’s fabric into a smoother, softer texture

Skin results and statements are based on clinical trials performed by the brand and individual results may vary.
Twice daily, apply 4-6 drops to face, neck, and chest, or as directed by a skincare professional. Before non-invasive rejuvenating procedures (e.g. laser, microdermabrasion, peels). Use post peel to combat flaking and enhance peel results on the skin.
In young, healthy skin, the desquamation cycle takes approximately 28 days.
At the beginning of the cycle, each basal keratinocyte divides into two identical daughter cells. One remains behind to divide again while the other differentiates, migrating through the epidermis toward the stratum corneum where it becomes a corneocyte.
Corneocytes contain proteins (primarily keratin) and water soluble substances (including urea, filaggrin, and amino acids). These components provide the proper hydration and make up the natural moisturizing factor (NMF) that helps reinforce the skin’s barrier function, preventing irritation, dehydration, and damage.
As cells migrate upwards, enzymes break down corneo-desmosomes (the links) holding those together, allowing older corneocytes to naturally detach from the surface in a process called desquamation. This revolutionary resurfacing and replenishing serum surpasses the results of a 20% daily glycolic treatment while simultaneously reinforcing the skin’s barrier for healthier, more radiant skin.
