Restore Life To Your Skin With Facials And Skin Peels
Everyone’s skin is different and the skin issues that can cause discomfort or irritation are wide and varied. To make things even more complicated, some of us have skin that has more than a few issues going on at the same time. While a good skincare regime is very useful day to day, sometimes you need a more specialised treatment to get skin back on track and give your face back its naturally youthful appearance. That’s where things like peels and facials come in.
Facials and peels can work to address common overall skin woes, like uneven texture or dullness as well as more specific concerns like acne, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as pigmentation or dark spots. There is a huge variety of really effective treatments available and a good skincare expert will be able to indicate which treatment best suits your skin’s needs.
What is a skin peel?
A peel is usually a resurfacing treatment that has been designed to improve the clarity, tone and texture of skin. They tend to be more active treatments than, for example, a facial and are particularly good for dealing with dull skin or an uneven skin tone. The term ‘peel’ can be a little intimidating for people, but treatments come in varying strengths and are targeted to specific concerns. Downtime should be minimal and good peel will always have skin health in mind.
The Image Skincare brand, one of the most trusted cosmeceutical brands on the market, combines active ingredients with an aloe vera based gel to protect skin. There are a number of peels in the range, each designed to tackle specific skin concerns. The Organic Passion Facial Peel, for example, works on irritated or unbalanced skin and uses a blend of papaya, pineapple, pumpkin and mango-infused ingredients to soothe and rebalance the skin. It’s a great one for pregnant women too.
The Wrinkle Lift Peel resurfaces skin with an effective-but-gentle glycolic and retinol mix, while the Lightening Lift Peel blends lactic acid and brightening agents to gently address pigmentation issues, sun damage and rosacea.
Acclaimed skincare brand Murad has an Intense Wrinkle Peel, which teams pharmaceutical-grade ingredients with the very latest skincare technology to smooth and brighten the complexion, and add a super-dose of hydration to skin.
As well as being a great to way to relax and take some time for yourself, facials can have significant benefits for skin. They’re particularly good for hydrating a parched complexion, while trained therapist can also incorporate massage to help reduce puffiness and restore contours to the face. A series of facials can be hugely effective for turning skin problems like dehydration, fine lines, dullness and uneven texture around and kickstarting a healthier skin regime.
Dr Murad has a varied selection of facials that are specifically targeted to treat specific concerns. Tired, lacklustre skin? Try the super hydrating Anti-Fatigue Treatment, which incorporates acupressure and relaxing massage techniques to revive skin and boosts hydration levels for up to eight hours.
If sun damage is your issue, the Sun Undone Infusion Treatment uses Vitamin C to restore brightness to the face and enhance an even skin tone. It’s also a good option if you have a busy or stressful life, as it helps to revive the complexion. If your skin tends be hormonal, or lacklustre, the Resurgence Renewal Treatment is an indulgent facial that restores suppleness and hydration to bring skin back to its best.
