Take advantage of Fall To Help Your Clients Repair & Rejuvenate
If there’s a season perfect for skin, it’s autumn. Summer's harsh UV rays aggressively break down collagen and can stimulate hyperpigmentation (but you’ve been using your sunscreen RIGHT?) and winter's cold strip the skin's surface, making it dry and dehydrated.
Autumn's mild weather makes it the perfect time to repair some of that summer sun damage. At the same time, it makes your skin strong and healthy so it can protect itself against the cold. There are a lot of options available and as the expert, you can assess your client's skin and prescribe the perfect fall exfoliating facial.
Regular mild peels and microdermabrasion freshen up the surface of the skin, smoothing and de-congesting. If your client presents with mild pigmentation, slightly uneven texture or fine dehydration lines, a course of peels or microdermabrasion sessions will help to reduce these. The treatments will also stimulate the skin's circulation and boost collagen repair.
Milder peels include enzyme peels that often contain papaya or pumpkin enzymes, which "eat" the very top layer of dead keratinised skin cells, instantly revealing fresher glowing skin underneath. These rarely leave any redness after treatment and are suitable for most skin types.
Pumpkin Enzyme Peel is back in stock, as well as our popular Pineapple Enzyme Peel, Glycagel 15% and Enzyme Peeling Creme.
Mild to medium alpha and beta-hydroxy acid peels, (Glycolic 40% and Salicylic 15%) are the most common peels used and work a little bit deeper, although they still mainly focus on the upper dead layers of the skin. Once applied, they rapidly change the acidity levels (pH) of the skin, which then causes the "glue" between the skin cells to break down, releasing the skin flakes so that they fall away.
