Why are skin peels so great? Peeling can treat aged skin, deep wrinkles, fine lines, hydration issues and acne scars, while improving your skin’s vitality and texture. As a result of the peel, the deeper layers of the skin will respond by regenerating new skin and by increasing the production of collagen. The result is a look that’s smoother and more youthful.
Yes, having a skin care routine that works is always a relief, however it doesn’t hurt to give your face a boost every so often.
Prep for professional peel: If you’re considering getting one, remember to stay hydrated. Drink the recommended 8 to 10 glasses of water the week before. Also, exfoliate at least a couple of days the week before…why exfoliate before an exfoliation service like a chemical peel? Because you’ll want to prep your skin for the professional strength chemical peel. Lastly, continue to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize and wear sun screen! Be sure to stick to using the same moisturizer and sun screen – experimenting with new products may cause your skin to get irritated and unbalanced.
