Peels do not suit everybody, so before using a peel we recommend that
you carry out a 24 hours patch test prior to use. Take a small amount of the
peel and apply to a small, hidden area (just behind the ear is ideal). Leave on
the skin for two minutes and then use the neutraliser gel for one minute, then
wash off. Check the area after 24 hours. If no inflammation is apparent then
apply the peel to your face. If the patch test results in inflammation then do
not continue using the peel. We recommend carrying out at least 6 peels over six
weeks, one per week. One 30ml bottle should give 10 to 15 peels. After the 6th
peel, rest the skin for two weeks before resuming if further peels are desired.
First ensure your skin is clean using our natural cleanser, rinse and dry before
peel application. Using the brush or cotton pads that we have supplied for free,
apply the peel solution on to the skin. Leave the Acid Peel on your face for 1
or 2 minutes. For each subsequent application (One per week for six week)
increase the time by 1 or 2 minutes, total 8 minutes. After 1 to 8 minutes of
leaving the acid peel on your face, simply rinsing with water is not effective
enough at neutralising the acid. Therefore take a small amount of the
neutralising gel and apply to the area treated. The gel will immediately
neutralise the acid, leave to dry for 1 to 2 minutes and then rinse with warm
water to remove the gel. The gel also minimises post application inflammation by
ensuring that none of the acid is left on the skin. Once your skin adapts to the
new treatment and after your first six treatments over six week, it is safe to
increase the peel use to twenty minutes on your face for better results, but
only after a two week rest from your first six weeks of treatments. After each
treatment it is very important to use our "100ml Aftercare Lotion" (bought
separately), without it your skin will get sun damage ageing and won’t be soft
enough for the peel to have worked to its full potential.
Which type of peel is best for your
skin? As a rule of thumb peel selection is best made based on the
individuals skin type, though specific skin issues will also influence the
choice. Alpha Hydroxy Peels - Glycolic Acid for Normal skin. Lactic Acid for
Sensitive skin. Mandelic Acid for Sun Damaged or Blemished Skin. Beta Hydroxy
Peels - Salicylic Acid for oily, combination and/or acne prone skin.
Which Strength of Glycolic, Mandelic or
Lactic Acid? 20% - light peel providing mild exfoliation, ideal for
first timers. 40% - medium peel providing deeper exfoliation, recommended for
those with experience of lighter peels. 50% to 60% - Use with caution,
experienced users only for strong peel producing significant exfoliation and
skin resurfacing benefits. Prolonged weekly use will gradually improve shallow
acne scarring providing deep exfoliation and decongestion of the pores;
eliminates blackheads; control excess oil and keep the pores clear.
Which Strength of Salicylic Acid?
Salicylic Acid is stronger than Glycolic, Mandelic and Lactic Acid so the
percentage of strength cannot be compared. 5% - mild enough to be used daily to
control excess oil and keep the pores clear. Provides mild exfoliation and
decongestion of the pores; eliminates blackheads and improves acne. Also useful
treatment for Keratosis Pilaris and use as a skin toner. 15% - medium peel
providing deeper exfoliation. 20% - strong peel with skin resurfacing benefits.
Prolonged weekly use will gradually improve shallow acne scarring.What to expect: Home peels (essentially our
entire range) is considered safe for home use because they are significantly
gentler than surgical peels. Whereas a surgical peel needs to be performed just
once to produce dramatic results (and involving two weeks downtime while the
skin recovers), home peels require several applications - ideally 6 over six
weeks - to yield significant results. The skin will respond to the initial peels
and will improve the softness and smoothness of the complexion, but more
significant improvements will require several applications. Due to the
'gentleness' of the home peel there is little downtime. Indeed, within a few
hours of application, the skin will have settled down and any redness
dissipated. There will be little obvious evidence to others that you are
undergoing a series of peels. The skin does not actually peel - home peels
exfoliate the very thin surface layer of skin, and so at most you will see
flaking of the skin rather akin to the skin of flaking you might experience if
you have ever suffered mild sun-burn. We receive countless e-mails from people
who write to say that they have made the first application of their peel and
cannot see any difference! A single application of a home peel cannot improve
your complexion overnight - it must be given time. You will see improvements but
be patient, it will take two to three days after your first peel application
before you start to see results.These facial acids will make your skin more prone to sun-damage, to prevent that
we advise you use our after care treatment "100ml Aftercare Lotion" bought
separately. Our "100ml Aftercare Lotion" is a special formula of organic sun
screen SPF15 with skin conditioning agents. We also stress please DO NOT USE
ordinary sun screens that use mineral based sun blocks such as Titanium and Zinc
Oxides, because mineral based products block your facial pores and lead to
spots. Our sun screen post peel is much kinder to skin and can be used as a
daily sun block lotion. Please use the "100ml Aftercare Lotion" sunscreen when
outside, especially in strong sunlight.
Note: The use of sun screens is not the complete answer to protecting
your skin from the harmful effects of sunlight. No matter how effective a sun
screen is it cannot prevent all UVA / UVB rays from penetrating the skin.
Sunlight generates free radicals which damage cells and collagen at a molecular
level. Free radicals are the single biggest cause of ageing of the skin. Our
creams and lotions containing anti-oxidants will provide protection from free
radicals. Please look at our products - 30ml Vitamin C Serum Collagen Booster
with Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid with Anti-oxidant. Also our Day-Derm and
Night-Derm creams provide protection from free radicals.Welcome to Skinfab forever young skincare.We sell the newest advanced skincare treatment products in the World, dealing with anti-ageing, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea, acne, sun burn, sun protection etc.Our philosophy is to provide high quality active skincare products for both men and women, used in the home and by professional spa clinics that work at affordable prices.Our emphasis is on the quality of the products, and not the packaging as we feel that you the customer want great skin care without spending on fancy packaging.
