Experience e’clat Glow and Radiance Mandelic Acid Peel : The Nonirritating AHA That Resurfaces Your Skin
Whenever our skin is feeling dull and congested and is in serious need of overall rejuvenation, we turn to peels. They remove the uppermost, superficial layer of skin to promote the growth of newer, healthy skin and address skin problems like acne and hyperpigmentation.
WHAT IS MANDELIC ACID?
TYPE OF INGREDIENT: Exfoliator.
MAIN BENEFITS: Increase in cell turnover, anti-acne, anti-aging.
WHO SHOULD USE IT: In general, people with sensitive or acneic skin who want an exfoliant that’s less harsh than traditional AHAs.
HOW OFTEN CAN YOU USE IT: Once a week, because over-exfoliating causes irritation and other potential skin conditions.
WORKS WELL WITH: Hyaluronic acid, other hydrators.
DON’T USE WITH: Other AHAs, other peels, retinol, retinoids.
BENEFITS OF MANDELIC ACID:
Exfoliates: Mandelic acid is a chemical exfoliant, meaning it removes layers of older skin cells through a reaction with the skin (rather than exfoliating via abrasive scrubs).
Promotes cell turnover: By releasing skin cells attached to the surface of the skin, mandelic acid works to increase cell turnover, reducing the appearance of skin damage or acne.
Brightens skin: Exfoliated skin appears brighter and mandelic acid goes a step further, strengthening the skin so it stays bright with continued use.
Reduces hyperpigmentation: Increased cell turnover and exfoliating properties mean the acid reduces the look of dark marks and sun damage.
HOW TO USE :
Step 1: Wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Use a soft towel to pat your face dry.
Step 2: Apply a skin toner and wait for 2-3 minutes.
Step 3: Take 5 gm of e’clat mandelic peel on your fingertips and make a layer it into your face and neck.
Step 4: Wait for 20 minutes to allow the e’clat mandelic peel to sink into your skin.
Step 5:Remove the peel and clean it with wet cloth.Then apply a moisturizer.
Just like any regular peel, avoid retinol use for at least three to five days before. “You should stop using Retin-A and avoid contact with any acid treatment at least two weeks in advance,” this peel shouldn’t be applied to tanned or sunburned skin.”
For post-peel activities, avoid any activity that will make you sweat, avoid the sun, as your skin will be more sensitive to burning under the sun’s UV rays. USE SPF
