Why I switched from facial scrubs to peels

Removing the dead skin from my face is the most important part of my weekly facial routine. Not only does it prevent my pores from clogging but it also helps to brighten my face and is an anti-aging must. As someone with sensitive and acne-prone skin, I have found that using a basic exfoliator often leaves my face looking red and feeling irritated. I must say peels are much gentler on my skin. That’s why I’ve been using Korres: Wild Rose Vitamin C Petal Peel Brightening and Resurfacing System. It works in two steps: first by opening pores and removing impurities, and then peeling away dead skin cells. Here’s how I use it:

Starting with a fresh and clean face, I gently rub the activating peel gel onto my skin, and wait a few minutes until it dries completely. The peel gel helps to cleanse and open up pores, while Aloe Vera heals and softens the skin. The second step is applying a thick layer of the Wild Rose intensive brightening and resurfacing mask, all over the face while avoiding the eye and mouth areas. The mask is light pink, and smells like a bouquet of fresh roses. The ingredients include AHA’s and pomegranate enzymes, which help to peel away dead skin cells and resurface new skin. It also contains Vitamin C, which provides the skin with intense hydration and protection. After about 10 minutes, I rinse my face with warm water and it feels super soft. My skin is left looking brighter, radiant, and most importantly irritation free.
