Relax, our Peeling Solutions aren’t scary. Simply put, a peeling solution is a targeted mix of great-for-skin chemicals that exfoliate skin and treat specific concerns. When used correctly, Peeling Solutions are 100% safe and can be incredible for your skin. However, we know it can be overwhelming knowing which chemical does what and how to use it, so here’s our no-nonsense guide.
The first thing to know about our range of peels is that there are 5 different types for 5 different skin concerns; oily, dehydrated, sensitive, dry and combination. We also have different strengths available in most - daily use, and weekly use. So that’s a total of 8 amazing Peeling Solutions. Does that sound like a lot to choose from? Keep reading.
First of all: what strength do you need?
The answer is potentially both. Our daily acid peels are great for building your tolerance for a few weeks, before jumping into using the intense acid peel weekly. If you have particularly sensitive skin, then just stick to the daily dose and try mixing it with moisturiser like our Hydration Boost for added dilution.
Next up – how to pick your solution. Here’s an easy guide:
Symptoms: Dullness, fine lines
Solution: Gluconic Acid & Sodium Hyaluronate
Symptoms: Flaky skin, redness, irritation, scaly skin
Solution: Phytic Acid
Symptoms: Oily t-zone, dry patches
Solution: Phytic Acid & Salicylic Acid
Symptoms: Excessive oil, blemishes, congested skin
Solution: Azelaic Acid Salt & Salicylic Acid
Symptoms: Easily irritated and reactive skin
Solution: Gluconic Acid
If you think your skin fits with more than one of the above concerns, we’d recommend not mixing the peels as this can cause irritation. Instead, pick your biggest skin concern and treat that first. Then after a few weeks switch out to treat your second concern, being careful to build tolerance.
Remember, always use SPF after using peeling solutions as they increase your sensitivity to UV light.
