Eco find: Tata Harper’s Total Complexion Reset a natural alternative to chemical peels
by Luce Lau
Leave it to nontoxic skin-care line Tata Harper to come up with a plant-based alternative to the chemical peel.
Employing a whopping 22 ingredients—the majority of them skin-rejuvenating, naturally sourced acids like honey-derived gluconic and vitamin C–rich citric acids—the Tata Harper Total Complexion Reset offers the results of your standard peel (a brighter, more even, and luminous complexion) with zero recovery time.
The 60-minute treatment includes a gentle cleansing process, facial massage, and extraction, plus the layering of multiple acids that soothes more than it stings. (Given our most recent experience, we can’t promise you won’t fall asleep during the ultrarelaxing procedure.)
The result? Refreshed, healthy-looking skin sans redness that’s ready for a night on the town—or whatever after-peel plan you may fancy. Offered from $70 at Collective Skin Care (1268 Pacific Boulevard, upstairs from BeautyMark).
