Let’s face it 2021 was better than 2020 but still a bit “ekkkk”… this probably even took a toll on our skin. There’s never been a better time to shake up your skincare routine with our innovative chemical and physical exfoliants. We all have skincare concerns, and one size does not fit all. Which is why at Healing Waters we analyze your skin and talk about your skin wishes before recommending one of our exfoliating treatments.
We use a combination of chemical and physical exfoliating products.
The chemical-based products use active exfoliating powder, Alpha Peel, and Gommage which are all enzymatic exfoliants.
The physical-based products use Guarana Scrub, Phytoaromatic Gommage and Active.
What you should know
AHA peels rejuvenate the skin by enhancing exfoliation. This exfoliation allows for dead skin cells to be loosened and removed to prevent buildup that causes the skin to appear dull while also evening out skin pigmentation, tone, enhancing collagen production, and helping to reverse the signs of ageing. AHAs are great exfoliators thanks to their ability to cut through dead skin build-up, effectively reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. Because glycolic acids have the smallest molecular size, they have the greatest bioavailability and penetrate the skin most easily. Glycolic acids decrease cellular cohesion at the lowest level of the stratum corneum, exfoliating dead cells, encouraging younger, brighter cells to the surface. This superficial exfoliation ensures a reduction in comedonal acne, pore size, and acne lesions. The beauty of an AHA peel is that while being highly effective, they’re also very gentle and there are few limitations. They’re compatible with most commonly used skincare products, including retinol. We’d always recommend using an SPF after (during Winter and Summer!).
Here’s to a better 2022 and radiant, glowing skin.
