Hello friends of! Here I am again with more beauty content for you 🙂 This week it's time to talk about facial peeling . In this post I will tell you everything you need to know about him, a perfect ally to achieve flawless skin .

These are the points that I am going to deal with:

Now is the time to discover the keys to facial peeling. We started!

Facial peeling, what is it and what is it for? 

What does the word 'peeling' mean? It is a peeling or exfoliation of the skin.

Gentle peels are used to remove the outermost layer of the skin, or use a stronger peel to deepen the stratum corneum. Aims to renew the skin, remove dead cells, drag blemishes such as blemishes, scars and acne marks. By promoting skin renewal, it also improves skin tone.

Increases the production of collagen and elastin, in addition to the fibers that make the face smoother, with natural shine and without impurities. It is a very good method to keep the appearance of facial wrinkles at bay and avoid blackheads as it produces an intense cleansing on the face.

The type of peel you choose will depend on your skin symptoms . It is advisable to move from the mildest to those with more intense effects. Different acids are normally used (glycolic, salicylic, mandelic, resorcin, trichloroacetic, phenol, etc.) depending on the results sought, skin type, skin condition, and age, among other factors.

You should not feel pain during the peel, although it is true that you may notice stinging, burning or heat during the first minutes . Then the skin gets used to it and when it is ready the product is removed from the face. You have to be very meticulous in this part, since if it is not cleaned well, there may be remains that continue to exfoliate, which can cause irritation. Next, a suitable cream is used to nourish and hydrate the skin, which will help in the reconstitution and protection of the tissues.

It is advisable to stop using creams that contain retinoic acid or other irritants at least 3 days before the facial peel .

Depending on the technique used, we can speak of three types:

If you want to do your own peeling at home, keep reading 😉

How to make your homemade facial peel

If you are not very fond of beauty centers but want to have the perfect face, here is the solution. You can do your own peeling at home, without the need for special devices or chemical ingredients.

As explained from the Better With Health portal, the type of peeling will depend on your skin. These are the ones they recommend:

If you are also curious about doing a peel on the rest of the body, you can do it with coarse salt, ideal for massaging the body and fighting circulation problems, cellulite, stretch marks ... We will mix it with coconut oil, and optionally, with essential oil of rosemary, which will further activate blood circulation.

Once you have your homemade facial or body peel ready, it is time to apply it. These are the steps you must follow:

First, apply a little of the peeling on the previously washed area without drying it. Massage gently in circles, covering the entire area to be treated and avoiding sensitive parts (such as the eye contour). If we do the peeling on the thighs or buttocks, we can press a little harder until we notice that the circulation is activated.

Leave it on for one or two minutes and wash it off with water. The skin will remain hydrated by the use of the oils that have been added to each recipe , although if you have dry skin, it is advisable to hydrate it again.

It is not advisable to abuse peels , so you should do one a week or every two weeks, depending on your skin type.

Chemical facial peeling

You have already seen that it is possible to do a homemade peel, but we must not leave behind the option of resorting to professionals so that the result is more effective. The main difference between homemade facial peels and cosmetic cabinets is that many of the products are not for sale to the general public. They are only sold to estheticians or aesthetic doctors. Another of its advantages is the greater power of its chemicals, so the result will be more powerful. In addition, professionals in the sector know much better the effects, properties and benefits of chemical peels, so they can foresee adverse reactions. Normally, on the first visit they tell you how it is done and the number of sessions you need. They can also advise you on some other treatment that suits you to complement it. As I have mentioned before, it is a good option if you prefer to leave the treatment in the hands of an expert , even if that means taking more money from the piggy bank 😉 If it still does not convince you, here are some ideal products to do a superficial peeling at home.
