Chemical peels are something that have become progressively more popular in the skincare world, and there’s a good reason for it!
Chemical peels allow you to peel away the outer layer of your skin to reveal the flawless, fresher and brighter version that exists underneath. It works by using exfoliating acids to revive the dullness of the skin and bring out the glowing skin just beneath it.
Chemical Peel Benefits
Chemical peels have of course become so popular because of the many benefits they provide!
Fine lines and wrinkles
Helping to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles is one of the amazing benefits that chemical peels provide. Dead skin cells will actually settle into fine lines in the face. As they are removed it helps to make the lines and wrinkles a lot less visible leading to refinement.
The skin underneath those dead skin cells is fresh, glowing, and new. A chemical peel will remove any of the flakey dead skin cells which results in revealing beautiful skin underneath.
Chemical peels work to lower the pH of the skin which makes it hard for bacteria to survive. In turn, this helps to prevent acne as it removes the debris on the skin’s surface and ultimately leads to less clogged pores.
Improves efficiency of other skincare products
When you remove the top layer of the skin it helps your other skincare products to penetrate even deeper.
Types of Chemical Peels
- Salicylic Peels: this type of peel uses salicylic acid that effectively targets the oil glands. This makes it a great peel for those who might struggle with acne as it can penetrate deep into the pores and alleviate congestion.
- Glycolic Peels: Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that helps to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. This is great for things like sun damage, hyperpigmentation and acne.
- TCA Peels: TCA peels are a type of peel that works to penetrate the skin deeper than salicylic or glycolic peels. It is considered medical-grade and can only be done by a professional.
