Scrub, gommage, exfoliant, peeling are the basis of cleansing. They help to exfoliate the old layer of skin, accelerating and improving the process of its renewal. Due to this, the dermis becomes clean, soft, tender and velvety. Products can be universal or intended for the care of a specific part of the body.

A big plus of home peels is that some of them can be used all year round, in contrast to salon peels, which experts do not recommend doing in the summer. However, the type of procedure (from superficial to deep regenerating) should be selected individually with the help of a doctor. A home peel will prepare your skin for tanning or epilation, however, to remove wrinkles, breakouts and hyperpigmentation, you will need to talk to your doctor about a professional peel.
The main task of scrubs is to remove dead skin cells from the upper layers of the skin and prepare it for the application of creams, serums and lotions. The scrub not only enhances cell regeneration, but also evens out skin tone and reduces pigmentation. Be sure to use the product before your self-tanner to keep it flat.
Scrubs can be creamy or gel-like in texture, containing natural or artificial abrasives. Typically, brands use apricot pits, nuts, salt, sand, coffee, pearl crumbs, silicone beads, and healing mud particles. When choosing a scrub, it is important to pay attention to the size of the exfoliating particles.

The main components of the peeling are ANA or BHA acids, as well as enzymes. Their task is to destroy dead cells. The most popular of the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) are glycolic and lactic. The former stimulates collagen production but can be irritating, while the latter gently moisturizes. Both are suitable for dry skin. Among beta-hydroxy acids (BHA), salicylic acid occupies the main place, which is best suited for oily and problem skin, dissolving sebium directly in the pores.
To create peels, enzymes are also used - enzymes found in extracts of rice and fruits such as apple, pineapple, papaya. In addition, the product may contain amino acids that accelerate the process of cell renewal. Their effect is comparable to that of glycolic acid.
Exfoliating products include gommages, which gently cleanse the top layer of the skin, and exfoliants, liquid peels and scrubs with crushed abrasive particles.
Method of application
The skin must be clean before using the scrub. If you rest 15-20 minutes in a warm bath before the procedure, the result will be much more effective. Apply the product with light massaging movements, it is especially important to pay attention to the elbows, knees and heels.

Even the simplest home exfoliation can ruin your skin. Therefore, it is important to observe safety measures. First, clean your skin of make-up, wipe it with toner or lotion to degrease. Do not overdo it when applying exfoliation, do not use rough, intense movements, and do not use the product on the delicate skin around the eyes.
Rinse off the peeling strictly according to the instructions: if you overexpose it, you can get burned. During the procedure, you may feel a slight tingling sensation or a feeling of warmth, but if there is a feeling that the skin is burning, rinse off the product immediately.
The frequency of scrub and peeling depends on the composition of the product and the type of skin. With oily, you can use exfoliants once or twice a week, with dry - no more than once a month, while not forgetting about the mask.
Scrubs are often used as SOS products when you need to quickly refresh your face, for example, for an important event. With quick and dramatic results, some begin to apply the "magic remedy" several times a day to see radiant, smooth skin over and over again in the mirror. Such actions will lead to a disastrous result, since products with plant particles that have uneven and sometimes sharp edges can seriously injure the skin. Because of this, mechanical scrubs are also contraindicated for any type of rash, acne, and a tendency to rosacea. This also applies to body products that are prohibited for use in the décolleté area.

You should not combine several types of exfoliation during one procedure, and you should also not rush to use acids and enzymes. For a gradual habituation, it is better to start with a lactic acid peel. Remember that AHAs and BHAs increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun, so it is important to apply a highly protective product before leaving the house, even on a cloudy day.>
