Find Your Peel!


Category: Uncategorized | Date: | Author: .

Reveal beauty with a peel – you’re personal guide to soft, glowing, fresh skin. To help you along the way, I’d like to explain the main ingredients that compose the most effective peels. Combinations of fruit acids (also known as alpha-hydroxys) and enzymes make for extraordinary at-home peels.

FRUIT ACIDS

Look for lactic acid in your peel if you have delicate skin – this not only exfoliates but also hydrates skin and helps lighten dark spots. It’s the perfect ingredient for aging, sensitive skin.

Salicylic Acid is best used in peels targeted for oily / combination skin – it deeply exfoliates and breaks up oil deposits; however, it is not for sensitive skin.

Glycolic Acid, one of the first alpha-hydroxy peels available, is an aggressive exfoliant that can be used on all skin types except dry skin as it has a drying effect.

ENZYMES

Enzymes have a wonderful digestive action on dead skin cells. They act gently to rid the skin of flaky dry skin. Look for papaya and pineapple enzymes in your peels.

When combined with the fruit acids described above, the enzymes will enhance their various properties.

Below are my FAVORITE peels that I’ve created.
