As the leaves fall, it's time for your skin to undergo its transformation. Welcome to peel season, the opportune moment to shed the old and reveal the radiant new. In this guide, we'll explore everything you need to know about peel season, from the benefits to the types of peels available, ensuring you step into the colder months with a revitalized and glowing complexion.
Peel season typically refers to the fall and winter months when the decrease in sunlight makes it ideal to undergo skin peeling treatments. This season allows you to address summer skin damage and prepare for the upcoming months by unveiling a fresh, rejuvenated layer.Kick off Peel Season right by trying our Probiotic Clarifying Home Peel!
Benefits of Peel Season
- Exfoliation: Peels remove dead skin cells, promoting smoother texture and unclogging pores.
- Collagen Stimulation: Some peels stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and reducing fine lines.
- Hyperpigmentation Reduction: Peels can help fade dark spots and even out skin tone.
- Improved Product Absorption: A freshly peeled complexion allows for better absorption of skincare products.
Types of Peels
- Chemical Peels: Utilize acids like glycolic, salicylic, or lactic acid to exfoliate the skin at varying depths. Our Probiotic Clarifying Home Peel contains salicylic and mandelic acid!
- Enzyme Peels: Use natural enzymes to exfoliate and brighten the skin, suitable for sensitive skin types.
- Microdermabrasion: A physical exfoliation method that uses a machine to remove the top layer of skin.
- Microneedling: Involves tiny needles to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture.
Choosing the Right Peel for You
- Skin Type: Consider your skin type and concerns; certain peels are better suited for specific skin conditions.
- Downtime: Assess the level of downtime you can accommodate, as some peels may require recovery time.
- Consultation: Consult with a skincare professional to determine the most suitable peel for your skin.
Preparing for Peel Season
- Sunscreen: Prioritize sun protection to minimize UV damage during the peeling process. We suggest using the Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30.
- Skincare Routine: Follow a gentle skincare routine in the weeks leading up to peel season to prepare your skin.
- Hydration: Keep your skin well-hydrated to support the healing process. We suggest using the Calming Restorative Treatment after the treatment and the Gentle Calming Lotion to help reduce any sensitivity that may occur if needed.
- Sun Protection: Maintain diligent sun protection to protect your newly revealed skin. We suggest (once again) using the Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30.
- Avoid Harsh Products: Steer clear of harsh skincare products that may irritate your post-peel skin.
