What do Skin Peels do?
Put simply, skin peels clear away old skin and stimulate the regeneration of new skin. The renewed skin is then clearer, smoother and more even. To do this, peels embrace the power of naturally derived acids or chemicals and different ingredients combat different concerns. Their potency can be dialed up or down to suit different skin types, so there really is a peel for everyone and every concern. They’re also one of the most affordable and effective ways to dramatically improve your skin.
How do they work?
Our skin naturally replaces itself every 28 days, but this process slows down as we age. The naturally derived acids in peels help to give this process a real boost.
Some acids – known as AHAs (lactic acid) – go to work from the outside-in, helping to exfoliate the dead skin cells that make our skin dull, instantly brightening, tightening and hydrating.
Other acids – BHAs (salicylic acid) – penetrate deep into the skin and work from the inside-out, breaking down the oil and congestion that cause acne and blackheads.
When it comes to anti-ageing, vitamin A is the absolute gold standard in keeping your skin looking younger for longer. Helping to ramp up collagen production, speeding up cell turnover and tackling hyperpigmentation; there is very little that vitamin A can’t do.
What are the results?
Different peels treat different concerns – including acne, fine lines & wrinkles, texture, tone, sun damage, pigmentation and even scarring. There are peels that are fantastic for an instant lift and glow, and others that work overtime to resolve deep-seated and ongoing concerns. Whatever the case, maintaining a programme of peels has many anti-ageing benefits for your skin. In essence, you’re kicking it into a process of cell renewal, which means smoother, brighter and rejuvenated skin.
