Some people swear by facial peels to keep their skin hydrated, youthful-looking and glowing. However, if you have never tried one before, you may be wondering if this is all just a lot of hype. While peels should not be the only step in your skin care regimen, regular peels can do amazing things for older, damaged or dry skin. It can also help if you struggle with acne or have scars, wrinkles or marks on your skin. The exact benefits that you notice will depend on the type of facial peel that you choose and other factors.
You will see the benefits of lighter types of facial peels on the surface of your skin. These are designed to penetrate your epidermis, meaning that they are comfortable for you and leave you with fewer side effects than deeper options do. The main benefits of these peels include better skin texture, a better glow and a slight improvement in fine lines and other issues.
Deeper types of facial peels can produce dramatic results. These peels can decrease the look of deep wrinkles and scars, including acne scars, while also decreasing hyperpigmentation.
Most facial peels are made up of a variety of beneficial solutions that get rid of some of the surface cells on your skin to reveal the newer, younger and healthier layers below. There are a variety of solutions used, such as glycolic acid and salicylic acid.
