Everything you know about peeling is wrong...
Are you the kind of person who thinks “more is better” when it comes to scrubbing your face? Are you a proud owner of one of those gritty scrubs that have walnut shells or microbeads in them? Well, we have got some news for you. You just may need to stop using them.
Let’s start with some exfoliation basics, in case you’re a newby.
There are two main types of peelings that you can use at home: mechanical and chemical/enzymatic peelings. Most people are familiar with the mechanical (also called physical) peelings and these gritty scrubs as those most commonly found on the shelves of any beauty store or pharmacy. Why? Because they’re pretty cheap to make … and women think that if they can “feel the granules” with their finger tips, that must mean they’re doing the work. But, just because this product is so common, it does not mean it is right for you!
Many dermatologists actually advise against using them since there is so much potential for human error. The mechanical peelings rely on abrasive particle such as fruit seeds or other granulates. These peelings should not be used too frequently as the skin may react with irritations such as redness or extreme dryness.
In general, this form of exfoliation is not the best solution for all skin types as it can irritate even somewhat sensitive skin, and it works only on the very surface of the dermis. While these mechanical scrubs are not inherently bad ... the great majority of women and men abuse them by pressing too hard and actually damaging their skin. This damage leads to a state similar to a skin burn after sun exposure. Putting too much pressure when using a mechanical peeling can cause the blood vessels to burst. Thus, unless you are truly gentle and use a professional grade mechanical scrub (No drug store scrubs, please! ), most derms recommend an enzyme peel instead. There is a reason it is a regular go-to for celebs! Yes, weekly enzyme peel is one of key beauty rules for Sir John, a makeup artist who works with beauties such as Beyonce and Karli Kloss.
Enzyme peelings are considered much safer while actually more effective than the mechanical, abrasive scrubs. Enzymes are naturally derived active ingredients from fruit and plant resources and offer a more smoothing and gentle - yet effective result. For the most amazing glow, use a high quality enzymatic peel once or twice a week. Enzymatic peel is a mix of natural exfoliating ingredients that “chemically” dissolve old dull skin, to reveal serious glow, freshness and radiance. Plus, all the other products you apply on your skin after absorb better and are much more effective - we will say yes to that!
So how do enzymes work? Enzymes accelerate the skin cell turnover by digesting the “dead” skin cells and the cellular glue that connects them. Additionally, enzymes encourage new cells to form.
Your natural skin cell turnover slows as you age. It takes three to four weeks for teenagers but as you get into your thirties, forties and fifties - your skin needs major help in turning over and getting the new cells to the surface. The skin renews only every 60 days when you’re in your forties! And it may take as long as 90 days when you’re in your fifties. Thus, the key to looking young and plump is new skin cells. Let the enzymatic peel do the work for you.
