Skin peeling – what is the use and how to do it effectively?
Skin peeling is a procedure that provides many benefits, and can be carried out both in a beauty salon and at home.
The beneficial properties of peeling can be manifested, provided that it is carried out with the right gestures and products.
Peeling is a basic procedure for the beauty and health of the skin
Every 24 hours, over 1 million dead cells are removed from our skin.
Eventually, dead skin cells accumulate, mix with sebum, and clog pores, causing blackheads, pimples, and more generally, skin imperfections and a dull complexion.
Exfoliation speeds up the removal of dead skin and activates cell regeneration.
Exfoliation stimulates microcirculation, which improves skin radiance and promotes healthy, supple, and radiant skin.
Body peeling prevents ingrown hairs, especially after waxing.
It also softens the skin and evens out the complexion.
Therefore, exfoliation of both the face and body is a necessary procedure for healthy and beautiful skin.
How to make peeling effective?
Mechanical exfoliation, the best known and most commonly used, consists of combining a creamy texture with fine grains – sand, salt, fruit stone particles or even micro-particles – that exfoliate the top layer of the skin.
Exfoliation is considered complete when performed with massaging movements.
By massaging the fine particles on the skin, dead skin is removed.
Exfoliation of the body and face should be done using different products since the skin in these two places is not the same.
Facial skin is much thinner, exfoliant particles need to be much finer and more delicate to avoid irritation.
For the body, exfoliating particles may be larger.
For effective exfoliation, it is important to perform slow and circular massage movements for 2-3 minutes.
Avoid rubbing the skin hard, as this will not make the exfoliation more effective.
Peeling is recommended 1-2 times a week.
Exfoliating products is the key to complete skin care.
It is recommended to choose products with the most natural composition and those that are focused on the needs and type of skin: moisturizing, detoxifying, rejuvenating, and wrinkle care.
