If you have never exfoliated your skin before or exfoliated long time ago and want to start using skin peels, at the beginning there is a thick layer of dead cells on your skin surface, to get rid of it you may need a number of peeling procedures, but the first results you can see even after you started to exfoliate your skin.
Usually you told to use skin peel from 2 to 3 times a week, but some people even start using skin peels with 5 times and after that stop exfoliating for a week and start to exfoliate 2-3 times a week according to instructions. Your system of exfoliation is very largely depends on your skin type and the methods of skin peel you choose.
It’s better to start using skin peels with a common skin peel system and start to exfoliate 2-3 times a week and then you will feel whether it’s too irritative for your skin or not. At first your skin may get stinging a little, it just may need some time to adjust. Don’t use skin peels for a couple of days in this case to give your skin some time to calm.
If the irritation remains too long you may need to change your skin peel method or cut back the number and the intensity of procedures. For example the mechanical skin peel using a usual scrub can be too irriataive for a sensitive and dry skin and unsuitable for a acne type skin, a high concentration of AHA and BHA in your chemical skin peel can also be too irritative or cause an allergy.
So you should always take into consideration your skin type when you choose the exfoliation method and always follow the instructions.
Also you can use AHA or BHA lotions for everyday skin care. Usually you’re told to use it once or twice a day. The concentration of the acids in such skin peels is not so high and these products don’t rub the skin so they’re safer for sensitive skin.
Moreover you can use the plant enzyme skin peel products which are also quite safe for a most of skin types.
Home microdermabrasion kits can also give you a visible result even after one use. After the initial skin peel procedure normal and dry skin may need 1 or 2 procedures a week, oily skin – 3 procedures a week, sensitive skin – only 1 procedure a week. Try to follow this system if it doesn’t cause any discomfort for your skin and never overdo with skin peels.
And remember you should always use a good moisturizer and sunscreen after exfoliating your skin.
