I’m a big fan of a peeling mask as I find they suit my skin really well. I don’t really like to use very scrubby type products on my skin as it’s sensitive and tends to aggravate my mild case of Rosacea. As I result I’ve developed a collection of enzyme/peeling type products to help exfoliate and brighten my skin. Here’s a round up of my favourites.
As part of my one woman mission to tackle pigmentation I was doing some research on home treatments for brightening skin. This Philosophy Microdelivery Peel gets some great reviews but it ain’t a cheap solution at €75. I’ve been getting a bit desperate to fix my skin so I decided I’d make the investment.
Now the word peel always freaks the bejesus out of me as it brings to mind acidic chemicals and a raspberry red face. But I have since learned there are very gentle fruit and lactic acid based peels that can suit even sensitive skin. The Philosophy Peel is mainly based on Vitamin C and Lactic/Salicylic Acid and contains two steps.
