Ever wished you could apply the same level of care and attention to your entire body as you do to your facial skincare routine? Well, you’re in luck. With special rejuvenation skin peel programmes, the skin care regimen we’ve used on our precious facial skin is now being used – in higher concentrations – on our body skin.
And it makes sense when you consider the strange contrast between a baby-smooth face juxtaposed against, for example, rough, pigmented arm skin and hands. Today, body care experts don’t just advise cleansing, toning, moisturising and exfoliating as a necessary part of your beauty arsenal, they also recommend body skin peels.
Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it’s what stands between you and disease and infection. Therefore, it’s time you started taking proper care of it, and your cosmetic surgery centre might be just the place to start.
“Peels are so much better for your skin than scrubs. They’re not abrasive, and they perform so many other functions besides just exfoliation,” says body peel expert Kerry Benjamin, an LA-based esthetician. Furthermore, peels hydrate, destroy acne-causing bacteria, reduce hyperpigmentation, and crank up cell turnover. The end result? Brighter, healthier and glowing body skin.
The ever-popular chemical peel is an excellent option for beautifying body skin. And who doesn’t have patchy pigmented skin somewhere? Those ugly spots usually occur in places where the sun hits, such as the face, hands, arms, legs, the decollete, and shoulders. Those spots are ageing and nearly impossible to get rid of using conventional means, but chemical peels in high concentrations just might be the answer.
