Skin care specialists throw around the term “peel”. A peel is like a masque that exfoliates dead, dull and sometimes unhealthy skin. They exfoliate via a chemical process that breaks the bond of healthy new skin from older dry skin. As opposed to manual or granular exfoliation which is scrubbing off the older skin. Microdermabrasion is a manual type of deep exfoliation. A peel whether,superficial or invasive dissolves the top layers of spiny, dry or wrinkled skin. this process of taking away the dead and older layer of skin helps the process of cell renewal or “cell turnover.” We are causing new skin to regenerate new skin cells. This will make your skin look smoother and softer and more radiant. In Medi-spas or dermatologists offices they use peels that recommend that you don’t expose your skin to sun for 4-8 weeks. Some peels require bandages and a lot of recovery time. The Aveda Perfecting Plant Peel actually makes your skin healthier, stronger and more moisturized.
