Why one needs to peel in order to hide?

While the research shows several ‘known’ chemical compounds or composite mild acids are used to perform superficial peels to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, in this article we try to go beyond just scratching the surface of peeling.  We have been studying the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology since 2008, and we don’t quote any particular research article here, but the information provided here is our general understanding from studies performed from time to time.

What is peeling?  It is more like application of one or more exfoliating agents (in the form of a cream or a gel) to improve skin rejuvenation and reduce anti-aging symptoms such as fine lines and wrinkles.  In other words, It is superficial removal of dead skin cells along with dirt and oil.

How it is done? You pick a product of your choice, but pay attention to the ingredients, some boast to say they are natural and some contain one of these acids: TriChlorAcetic acid (TCA), Alpha Hydroxy acids, Lactic acid, Salicylic acid, Alpha hydroxy acids, glycolic acid.  Well, don’t be scared, some of these chemical compositions are hard to pronounce, but you don’t need to know their names, just know what they are intended to do and if by any chance your skin has a history or tendency to reject any such acids.  (they are mild and meant to be applied to the face, unlike H2SO4 or HNO3 or HCLO3 – don’t worry about them – these are the chemical compositions of Suphuric Acid, Nitric Acid and Choric acid respectively).

First gently clean your face (you may use an organic cleanser like this one), then apply the peel (just one coat), wait for about 2 minutes, by this time you should feel light tingling or burning sensation, that does not mean the product is bad, in fact it might be a sign that the product is working.  Rinse and pat dry the area.  You need to apply a good moisturizer.

What do you expect? The results generally vary, however 60-80% of the people who try a good peel experience improvement in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  But, under one condition, you need to follow a routine of peeling at least twice a week. So buy a product which is at least 50 ml, so that you can try it for multiple weeks.

So, there are plenty of tangible benefits – you can treat facial roughness, reduce pigment spots, reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  Good news is at least 50% of the people see very impressive results, considering several skin types, age and other factors, it is rather good.  The acids that we mentioned before are well established and they are harmless.  Don’t just worry about their chemical names, some of them are plant products or natural.  But, what we know is, all of the ingredients are required, it is not just one, they collectively work to produce the greater results – yes, synergy works here as well.

Last line – if anything, you have to try it to believe it, it is not so bad with a gift coupon – use “Gift20″ to save $20 off your first order.  Let us know if
