A facial peel is made up of a number of ingredients. The most important part of a facial peel is the ingredients used to create the facial. You will need to have a number of items to create the facial; the first thing needed is a alpha hydroxyl acid such as a fruit or a beta hydroxy. The acid used in facial peels helps to peel away the top layer of skin. Once the top layer has been peeled, what lies beneath is a layer of healthy skin.
When purchasing a at home facial peel from a local store be advised that you should not purchase a facial which carries more than 20 percent of one type of acid. Purchasing facials which are more acidic than this should be done under the care of a specialist or a professional dermatologist. Also note that you should always test a small portion of skin beforehand to make sure no allergic reaction is going to happen.
To make an at home facial peel from items most commonly found in your kitchen follow these recipes and instructions and you will get great results. You must follow the instructions step by step to achieve the best results for your facial peel.
The first step in creating a facial peel is to gather your ingredients. You will need to have a bowl for mixing your ingredients. You will need to have one cucumber with a half of a teaspoon of lemon juice added to a teaspoon of witch hazel and 1 egg white should be set aside. You will need to peel the cucumber and run it through a food processor and strain in a colander. You will need to force it through the colander and then add the remaining ingredients. Once you have done this you will need to place the facial peel all over your face; allow it to sit for 13 to 15 minutes for best results. Once it has sat long enough you will need to rinse off your face completely. When applying to your face and rinsing off your face you will need to be cautious not to get it into your eyes. Once you have rinsed it off you should have fully exfoliated face.
Another recipe you could use to create your facial peel uses honey. You should not use this recipe if you are allergic to eggs. You will need to gather your ingredients and your utensils such as a small bowl and a mixing spoon. Once you have these you will need to have one tablespoon of honey and a teaspoon of honey with one egg yolk. Once you have done this you will need to mix well enough to rub onto your face. Once you have applied your facial peel you should allow to remain on your face for a minimum of 15 minutes and then rinse off. Once you have rinsed it off your face should feel exfoliated and refreshed.
This is just a number of recipes available to use as a facial peel. These are just safe and less costly alternatives to spending your hard earned cash at a salon or spa. You will achieve the same results as if you would have visited a spa.
