Your way to smooth, poresless skin !
By Carolina Malis
The word peeling still scares some people and I don't blame them. There's a lot of myths about it going around (I used to believe some of them in the past, totally guilty of that) and there are some bad formulas out there, definitely. But peeling is not a bad thing, we need to clarify. In order to keep our pores free of toxins and dirt we must exfoliate. I've said it a million times, I know, but I'll keep on repeating it until I have the whole world baptized with it: there's not way to smoother and blackheads/pimples free skin without driving the exfoliation road, and peeling is a stop you should definitely park at.
Let's start with the basics: Peeling is a form of exfoliation that can help fix lots of skin problems such as pigmentation, texture, scars, dehydration, acne, wrinkles and the list goes on and on. Now, finding the right one for you? That's when things get interesting. As a sensitive skin person myself I need to find a peeling that's gentle and not irritating, meaning nothing that's gonna leave my skin feeling tight and/or striped. All face peels are made to remove a top layer of skin in order to exfoliate and speed up cell turnover, but there's some of them that go deeper and remove more than others, sometimes even more than we wanted them to.
In the search for a good, sensitive-skin friendly peeling I run into Neogen's Pore Tight Peeling Mousse, a mousse-like super soft and foamy formula that helps remove dirt, impurities, toxins, excess sebum, makeup residues and blackheads trapped in our pores. This fluffy mousse contains extracts from red algae and other deep sea plants to nourish the skin, while ceramide and hydrolyzed collagen smooth it out in a very gentle yet effective way.
It's really easy to use and mess-free as the mousse-type formula eliminates the frustrating strip application that can be highly irritating to the skin: you only shake the can up and down and pump an adequate amount of it in your dry hands, to then spread all over your dry face avoiding eye area. Then rub the mousse gently across your face until it completely disappears - fun part? You'll actually see the product rolling and pulling up on your skin as it removes dirt and dead skin cells -. Finally, rinse off with lukewarm water and Tada! You got brighter, smoother skin in a matter of minutes.
Personally I recommend peeling one or two times a week, there's no need for more! If you use any other kind of exfoliation you can mix and match, using a peeling one day and then exfoliating pads, acids or scrubs the other day. The important thing is that you keep exfoliation as part of your routine.
