It is said that human beings are creatures of emotions, we laugh, we cry, we worry, and there is a plethora of emotions we go through on a daily basis. They all show on our faces and stay recorded in small wrinkles, spots, the tone and look of our skin. In addition, our faces are exposed to the sun, UV rays, hot and cold weather, toxins from the environment and these are all unhealthy. Our skin gets tired just like we do and is in need of care, rest and rejuvenation. Luckily, nowadays we have many options for facial rejuvenation available to us, and here we mention just a few.
A chemical peel is a facial in which a chemical solution is applied to your skin and it works by removing the skin’s top layers thus reducing sun damage, pigmentation and wrinkles. There are many different chemical peels with regards to their ingredients and strength. Lighter peels rejuvenate the skin whereas stronger peels remove wrinkles and lines. If you have never done a peel or if you have sensitive skin, you can start with the almond peel. It is gentle and doesn’t cause any discomfort, and it is very effective in the treatment of acne. One of the most popular peels is Glycolic peel, and some others are Salicylic peel, TCA peel and Jessner peel. They are all excellent for skin hydration and work wonderfully for problematic skin.
This procedure is popular because it is non-invasive, fast, painless and highly efficient.

It does cause a mild skin irritation and pinching but aloe vera gel is applied to the skin to soothe it.
