Our skin is one of the first places where we see physical aging occur. Age spots and wrinkles are usually the signs of a life well-lived, but that doesn’t mean you can’t revitalize your appearance. Facial peels are a wonderful way to maintain your skin’s vibrant glow and supple texture. The primary purpose of a facial peel is to exfoliate. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead cells from the surface of your skin. While you can use salt or sugar scrubs for this goal, a chemical facial peel tends to prove much more effective. Let’s discuss a few facial peel benefits that explain why!
How A Facial Peel Benefits Your Skin
Enhances Your Skincare
Exfoliation is so important in part because it allows your other skincare products to work better. When you no longer have a layer of dead skin cells absorbing your creams, toners, and serums, your hydrating products can actually penetrate the deeper layers of your skin more easily. Not only will your skin be healthier for it, but hydration can actually help plump up your fine lines and wrinkles.
Brightens Your Complexion
Your skin naturally sheds old cells, but sometimes they build up and cause dryness or flakiness. Too many of these cells can congest your pores and dull your complexion. Additionally, they can build up in your creases, exacerbating the look of your fine lines. A facial peel helps reveal newer, younger skin that appears much brighter and smoother.
Repairs Sun Damage
As we accumulate sun exposure over the years, we usually see damage in the form of dark spots (also known as age spots or sun spots). The chemical solution we use for peels, usually glycolic or salicylic acid, is excellent for fading this hyperpigmentation. Since the newer skin we reveal tends to be much brighter, your dark spots may look lighter in appearance. However, you will likely need several peels for long-term results.
Minimizes Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Collagen is a fiber that maintains the shape of your skin. When it degrades, we see more sagging and creases. Over time, our collagen breaks down for a number of external reasons. Junk food diets, unprotected sun exposure, and pollution can all lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Facial peels can help stimulate collagen production under the skin, potentially minimizing the appearance of creases.
Acne isn’t limited to just teens! Adult acne is a real issue among many. The cause of acne can be a combination of old skin cells, excess oil production, and bacteria building up in your pores. Two of the best facial peel benefits are that it can help remove old cells and calm your oil production, both in the short and long run.
