Peeling formulations

It is recommended to use peeling 1-2 times weekly to remove dead skin cells, refresh the skin and cleanse deeper. Nevertheless, there are basically two types of peeling formulations on the market: Mechanical peeling creams and chemical peeling creams.

 

Mechanical peeling creams contain peel grains and are rubbed gently in circular movements. Almost immediately, the cream is rinsed off. This formula fits most skin types and conditions, except for acne and oily skin. The reason why is because of the grinding and movements, which may stimulate the sebum (oil) production and worsen the conditions. These skin conditions should use chemical peelings instead.

 

Chemical peelings do not contain any grains. On the other hand, they contain acids, which peel the skin chemically. Examples include lactic acid, salicylic acid and hydroxy-acids. Chemical peelings can be used by all skin types except very sensitive or irritated skin. They are the bets choice for acne and oily skin types. Another point worth mentioning is that you should be extra careful in the sun for 1-2 days after the peeling, since it may potentially increase the chances of sunburn.
