Your skin is a powerful tool that your body uses to protect your internal self form heat, sun, wind, rain, cold and injury or harm. Not surprisingly, the skin tends to look a little worn out after a few decades have gone by. Your skin often tells the story of the life you’ve led, and how long you’ve been living it.
If you want to make your skin younger and fresher looking, skin peels offer a non-surgical and non-invasive solution.
Your skin generates itself in layers. The outermost layer on the surface is the area that suffers the most damage from the elements and the environment you live in. Skin cells frequently die off and the upper most layer is replaced by the fresher layer underneath it.
Skin peels, basically speed up this process, removing the outermost damaged layer, revealing the younger skin hiding below. There are many different types of skin peels available for oily, normal, combination or sensitive skin. Many spas and salons offer facial peels that are specific to certain conditions, such as anti-aging, acne or dehydrated skin. Most of the skin peels are made from natural acids and extracts, but you should consult the technician before the application to confirm the ingredients.
One of the most popular applications for a skin peel is to reduce the tired lines that form around the eyes, mouth and forehead. Peeling back the top layer of skin leaves fresher, tighter skin behind that doesn’t show the signs of aging. Many skin peel kits are available for use at home, but you should have a friend along to help you, since you need to be careful around the sensitive eye area.
While it’s not a permanent solution, a skin peel is a rewarding and relaxing experience that you can repeat every 12 weeks to keep your face looking vibrant and young.
