Cosmetic peels done in a clinic can be pretty harsh, leaving your skin red-raw for days and requiring a lot of healing time. The science behind using acids to peel away the top layer of skin is sound and definitely leaves your skin looking better in the long-run, but there are gentler ways to make it happen. Here at Pure Beauty, we stock a whole load of ‘peeling’ products, and we’ve put together a selection of five of the best for you to consider:
The exfoliator from Decleor is part of the Prolagene Lift range and has been specially designed to exfoliate mature skin. It acts in just five minutes to smooth and firm skin for a younger, more radiant complexion. It uses fruit acids to gently remove the top layer of skin, revealing new skin beneath and giving you a revitalised look – just be sure to avoid the delicate eye area!
This non-abrasive exfoliator from Elemis harnesses the power of fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate the skin, making the complexion appear smoother and brighter. It dissolves dead skin cells without rubbing, making it particularly suited to mature and delicate skin, and leaves the skin smoother and brighter.
These pouches contain a multi-functional product which uses hydroxyl acids to resurface the skin, as well as botanical skin brighteners and maximum hydrators which brighten and moisturise the skin as they go, leaving you with a renewed complexion and glowing skin. The individual pouches mean that you’re able to dispense the exact amount that you need without any waste and the sponge allows you to distribute it even over your skin.
This resurfacing serum from Elemis has used alpha-hydroxy acids from four different flowers, and contains a patented Tri-Enzyme technology to renovate the surface of your skin. The serums smoothes the skins surface, reduces wrinkles and even helps to deal with open pores and uneven skin. In fact, it’s so powerful that Elemis recommends you use a high SPF after using the serum if you’re going outdoors as your new skin will be so fresh and delicate!
This exfoliating cream from Decleor is a completely smooth formulation which contains no rough particles, and removes the top layer of cells without any abrasion. The cream helps cleanse skin, removes impurities, removes dead skin cells and helps stimulate the cellular renewal process. Your skin will have a healthy glow after just one use.
