What is a Peeling Gel?

Hey FaceTory Fam! 😍

Today, we’re going to talk about an exfoliant, but not just any exfoliant, we’re talkin’ peeling gels! 🤗 Why are we so excited about this topic? Let us fill you in. 😉 Peeling gels are super popular in Asia. They help to exfoliate the skin without being too harsh or abrasive. And OMG it feels super satisfying and will leave your skin feeling smooth and renewed! Sounds pretty great right?! Yes, we know, 😉 so read on to find out more about peeling gels!

So what exactly is a peeling gel?

A peeling gel is a form of physical exfoliation. It is extremely gentle and soothing, making it the perfect exfoliator for sensitive skin! Unfortunately, dead skin cells won’t go away after a good ol’ cleanse (sad but true). Exfoliating your skin, however, will help get rid of all of that, allowing your products to sink in and absorb better! And hey, you spend money on your skincare, might as well make sure your skin is actually absorbing it, right?! 😌

How does it work?

Peeling gels help dissolve dead skin cells. When it is applied, it will ball up in tiny pieces, extracting dead skin cells as you gently rub the product on your face. The product reacts to the oil on the surface of your skin and creates clumps that help pick up dead skin cells. So, if you’re wondering what all those tiny pills on your face are… ‘tis your dead skin AND the product itself! 👌😬😅 Cool? Gross? A bit of both? 😅
