Facial peel is the next best thing (second only to facial exfoliants) that you can do to keep your skin youthful and radiant.
I am not referring to chemicals-filled peels found in stores. Artificial ones are based on glycolic acid, one of the Alpha hydroxy acids What it does is that it penetrates the skin incredibly well and then dissolves the lipids in the top layer of the skin so that the dead skin cells are removed and the new skin emerges.
It is a chemical and it can be an irritant.
There is a way to prepare a homemade facial peel that not only removes the layer of dead cells, but also allows other ingredients that are a part of it to penetrate the skin instantly nourishing it and smoothing it out. Homemade peels are sometimes called home chemical peel with chemicals being natural ingredients.
Cucumber is naturally a powerful astringent that helps tighten the skin and smooth out the wrinkles and fine lines.
Chamomile and green tea work wonders with alleviating puffiness, and the aloe Vera gel nourishes the skin providing it with moisture.
This mask can be used as a sunburn home remedy when applied 3 times a day.
Another great recipe is for is Papaya based peel that removes the dead skin cells thanks to its enzyme papain. While it is a strong natural peel, this facial peel provides other ingredients that buffer the effect by soothing the skin and preventing any possible irritation.
