I’ve upped the ante on acids, moving from gentle to extra-strength daily Peel Pads by Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare.
I was inspired to do so after watching a Sali Hughes YouTube video with the dermotologist and his wife, Carrie Gross. She’s the highly engaging CEO of the brand, and revealed that she uses the peels twice a day! —the Alpha Beta Extra Strength Daily Peel in the morning, and the Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recovery Peel at night.
It’s an informative and fun interview, with Carrie’s Beauty Pantry, her Device Graveyard, and her lip and brow obsession.
The extra-strength peel is serious skincare in an anti-ageing formula contains 7 acids including:
Glycolic Acid: Reduces the signs of ageing.
Salicylic Acid: Reduces pore blockages and supports natural collagen.
Mandelic Acid: Supplements the anti-ageing benefits of Glycolic Acid and possesses anti-irritation and anti-redness properties.
Lactic Acid: A naturally occurring Alpha Hydroxy Acid that supports natural cell renewal.
The two-step peel is a veritable Wonder Worker.
I had initially thought the extra-strength version was only for oily or acne-prone skin types, but although it’s powerful, it’s also gentle enough for normal skin like mine. This anti-ageing peel combats three common signs of ageing:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
It exfoliates the skin, thereby making it more responsive to whatever skincare products you follow up with:
As the layer of dead cells, bacteria, makeup and oils are removed from the surface, the exposed layer of healthy skin is able to absorb products more easily, allowing you to soak up more benefits.

We might not be able to stop the clock on ageing
but this is the rewind.
