Seamlessly, our skin is constantly renewed. The dead cells of the horny layer of the epidermis are peeled off, and new ones appear in their place. However, as a result of the influence of aggressive environmental factors and due to the abnormality of regeneration processes, dead cells accumulate on the skin surface. The newly formed layer is an ideal environment for bacterial growth, and therefore the development of inflammatory processes. That is why phenol peeling and resurfacing are becoming increasingly popular not only among women but also among men.
So, on the Internet, you may encounter several synonymous terms: peeling, exfoliation and deep cleansing. The essence of these concepts is identical and means the regeneration of the upper layers of the skin.
The benefit of this cosmetic procedure does not depend on the time of year. Although many people still doubt whether it is worth charging the skin with diamond face resurfacing, for example, in winter. There is only one answer - yes. And if your face is subject to pigmentation, then it is in winter when you have a chance to clean it without any consequences, when the ultraviolet rays’ impact is reduced.
In general, peeling is done for the following reasons:
It is worth considering that the darker the girl’s skin, the higher the tendency of her epidermis to pigmentation. In this case, it is better to carry out intensive cleansing in winter, when the exposure to UV radiation is minimal.
Exfoliation can be both purely cosmetic and therapeutic procedure. In the second case, it is prescribed by a dermatologist and is carried out under its control. The purpose of the procedures is to restore the skin or treat it. In winter, as a rule, doctors prescribe several attenuated microdermabrasion sessions of the skin instead of a single mechanical resurfacing.
Specialists distinguish three types of peeling: deep, medium and superficial one. Deep exfoliation or resurfacing of the face is used only as part of anti-aging care or for medical purpose. As well as the exfoliation of the medium depth of exposure, it can only be carried out by professionals in a salon. A specialist will evaluate the state of your skin and correctly select the dosage of the preparation and the intervals of the procedures. Surface cleansing can be done at home. In winter, it is better to give preference to sparing preparations intended for sensitive skin. As a rule, they contain natural trace substances that gently cleanse the pores.
Cleansing of the medium depth of exposure involves not only the use of substances containing saturated acids, but also a mechanical effect. The latter should not be used in winter. Any mechanical manipulation makes the skin more susceptible by suppressing its protective functions.
Cosmetologists recommend their patients to follow all three rules of peeling and resurfacing during the winter:
Such consequences of exfoliation are extremely rare. But, in order to avoid them, do not carry out experiments and in case of self-peeling, strictly follow the instructions related to the selected preparation. Entrust the performance of exfoliation and resurfacing of medium and deep degree to professionals.
Choose acid and bio-enzyme exfoliants. Be careful at studying their composition and select a product, which contains natural trace substances, the action of which is aimed at solving your problem:
The selection of cosmetic products should be individual and based on the characteristics of the client's dermis.
