Skin peels have historically been thought of as a salon-only treatment – but now face peeling gels and cleansers allow you to give your skin a quick refresh at home (and at a much more affordable price tag). Face peeling and exfoliation essentially refers to removing dead skill cells and also stimulates new surface skin cell renewal for smooth skin texture and glowing skin. This process is also popular for those with visible pores; by removing any unwanted dirt and oil, you can unclog your pores and reduce their appearance.
What is the difference between a physical & chemical exfoliant?
Both chemical and physical exfoliants remove dead skin cells leaving skin smoother and refreshed. Chemical exfoliants are active ingredients such as PHA’s or Glycolic Acid that boost skin surface cell renewal and help improve uneven skin texture/ tone and minimise pores, while physical exfoliants often contain abrasive small particles that work by scrubbing away dead skin cells.
Our best exfoliating make-up remover
Micellar water is a popular make-up remover because it takes a gentle approach and hydrates your skin while effectively removing makeup, dirt, and oils. It’s made up of micelles that bind to debris so they’re easier to remove – meaning the product requires minimal scrubbing to work and so can be gentler on sensitive skin.
We’ve combined the best of both worlds with our Micellar Gentle Peeling Water. The All-in-1 formula removes make-up, deeply cleanses the skin while also gently exfoliating to remove dead cells and smoothing out your uneven skin texture.
By hydrating, cleansing and exfoliating, this all-in-one option restores your skin’s natural glow and can be used daily for easy upkeep or to remove your makeup whenever needed.
