Why is everyone obsessed with Korean skin-peeling gels, and what are they?

Pollution, ultraviolet radiation, stress, hormonal imbalance, and age-related changes often slow down the skin renewal. Sebum seizes dead cells so that they cannot be removed naturally. This leads to clogged pores, inflammations, dullness, and poor skin tightness, requiring special care and regular usage of a gentle and effective peeling. The best choice is a peeling gel.

What is a peeling gel?

Peeling gel is a genuinely Asian product. Its concept lies in two actions:

  • Delicate dissolution of dead skin cells with the help of cosmetic acids (fruit, salicylic, lactic and others);
  • Absorption of dissolved skin cells with cellulose particles. The cellulose particles capture the dead cells and contaminants, rolling them into numerous balls.

Effect of peeling gels

Unlike scrubs, peeling gels contain no traumatic particles (microspheres, crystals, pieces of apricot kernels, etc.) So, while aggressive scrubs won't suit for inflamed, sensitive, dry and thin skin, peeling gels are perfect for these skin types! They are safe to use and their abrasive effect is very mild. You just cleanse your skin by gently rubbing it.

Massage with the use of peeling gels gives the following benefits:

  • intensifies microcirculation;
  • stimulates cellular metabolism;
  • accelerates regeneration;
  • eliminates stagnant processes.

How to use peeling gels?

  • Applying a peeling gel is very easy: 
  • Cleanse your skin and pat it with a towel.
  • Spread the peeling gel evenly over your face, avoiding the delicate skin around your eyes and lips.
  • Wait for 1 to 2 minutes (see the exact time on your product's package).
  • Massage your skin gently with your fingertips in a circular motion for 1 to 2 minutes. Be careful not to damage your skin. Pay particular attention to the T-zone. You will see that it's working when the cellulose pellets start to form under your fingers.
  • Wash off the cellulose pellets and the rest of the peeling gel with warm water.
  • Go on with your daily skin care.

If used regularly (1-2 times a week, depending on your skin type), the peeling gel:

  • smooths the microrelief;
  • cleans and tightens the pores;
  • refines the complexion;
  • lightens the pigmentation;
  • makes the skin look fresh and healthy.

How to choose a peeling gel?

Peeling gels differ depending on the skin type, additional effect, active components, and texture.

According to the skin type, they are divided into:

Products for all skin types

The vast majority of peeling gels are suitable for any skin type, from oily to dry.

The main purpose of peeling gels, as we've already said, is to exfoliate the cornified layer of the epidermis and clear the pores. Along with that, they are enriched with other care components.

According to their additional effects, peeling gels are divided into:

  • soothing;
  • moisturizing;
  • nutritious;
  • anti-inflammatory;
  • clarifying;
  • anti-aging.

Note that, as a rule, Korean peeling gels have a combined effect on the skin. Besides cleansing and exfoliating, they can moisturize and clarify your skin, struggle with inflammation, remove redness, stimulate cell renewal, and smooth the microrelief.

However, you should remember that the peeling gel is not a panacea. Complex skin care is crucial. Don't forget to cleanse, tone, nourish and moisturize your skin thoroughly, and, of course, exfoliate the dead cells of the epidermis with the help of peeling gels.

Using them on a regular basis, you can definitely obtain clean pores, smoothness, and lighter pigmentation.
