Did you know? Peels date back to the days of Egypt over 5,000 years ago when Egyptians used acids from fruits and milk as facial peels? So…what is a peel? A facial or chemical peel is a treatment in which an acid solution is used to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin. If you haven’t heard, Pevonia® Botanica introduced an all NEW in-spa professional treatment last week; the YouthRenew™ Hydra-Glow Peel! This ultra-hydrating new treatment, provides your skin with a smoother texture, minimized wrinkles, and lightened hyperpigmentation. Truly emerging your skin for a healthy, radiant, #BeautyFull glow! I had the pleasure of getting to experience this treatment last week, and wanted to share some important information on peels and my take on this exciting new spa experience.
…I know what you’re thinking.
The first time I heard “peel” I thought…yikes how can this possibly be exciting? I don’t want my skin falling off of my face? Gross. While the process does remove the top layer of the skin, the peel is properly (and gently!) exfoliates your skin to stimulate the formulation of new cells to provide your skin a more even tone and clearer, brighter skin. Your skin is not literally falling off your face, and there is nothing to fear with this process…I promise. So…what’s the big deal? Why Peel?
