April Skin Care in Focus

Time to Peel Away Winter

Spring has arrived and it is the perfect time for a facial. Add a peel to your service to get a deeper exfoliation and get that dead, dry skin off to give your skin a radiant glow. A “peel” can sound scary but it really can be the best thing to do for devitalized skin, especially after the very dry and cold weather we experienced this winter.

 
Why peel? There are many different varieties of peels out there from dermatologist grade resurfacing peels to gentle, lower percentage fruit enzyme peels. All have different functions and results and can be worth exploring depending on your goals. New skin cells develop in the lower layers of our skin and push their way to the surface to eventually die and slough away. Meaning… our skin is constantly regenerating itself and changing. Both the environment and lifestyle can have a large impact on this change and sometimes a little boost is needed to see the best results in your skin. As we age, our cell turnover slows down and that can cause the dead cells on the surface to gather and harden creating a “crust” like barrier. This barrier can prevent serums and moisturizers from treating the skin and can also prevent oil and sweat from draining normally to the surface causing clogging and breakouts. A peel can not only rid the skin of dead cellular build-up but can also help speed cell turnover to bring fresh, new cells to the surface to enhance your glow. Peels can also help reduce the visible signs of aging including hyperpigmentation and fine-lines and wrinkles.

Here at Osmosis, our Peel Add-in Enhancement can be added to any facial and all of our peels are 15% professional grade from Naturopathica. Each has a lower percentage at-home version that can be purchased in our boutique and used regularly as part of your skincare regimen. Although effective, all of our peels are also gentle and in most cases can only be felt as a light tingle.
