Chemical Exfoliant > Physical Exfoliant
Today I posted a video taking a deep dive into the glycolic acid peel.
Someone on IG suggested I post individual videos for all my products and I thought..
DUH this is a great idea that i should have already done!
I do mention my products here and there especially on instastories
But it will be helpful to have a long form youtube video as well.
I go into depth with the ingredients, HOW i use it, WHY i love it, and all that good stuff:
I actually still see people using physical exfoliants like WHY!?
Fine, everyones skin is different,
But actually a lot of people i see using physical exfoliants do not have great skin.
Their skin has premature aging because physical exfoliants are too rough.
Physical exfoliants, salt, sugar, beads, etc, physically remove dead skin cells by effectively buffing them off.
Its not always bad!!
It just shouldnt be your PRIMARY way to exfoliate.
Chemical exfoliants should.
It may be counter intuitive...chemical exfoliants being better for sensitive skin,
But its actually true.
Chemical exfoliants can cause damage when used inappropriately.
Most powerful enough to cause damage like this are not available over the counter.
You need a license.
But otherwise, chemical exfoliants are way safer, way more gentle, AND way more effective
If you have dullness, dryness, wrinkles, fine lines, texture, bumps, etc, then you need a chemical exfoliant
The Bauer Beauty glycolic acid peel is top notch
It combines multiple acids which all target different concerns.
So it provides you with a very comprehensive exfoliation experience.
Lactic, glycolic, pyruvic, and kojic are all alpha hydroxy acids which melt off the top layers of dead skin cells, and help to brighten and hydrate the skin.
Its also limited ingredients: (Water (Aqua), Glycolic Acid, Kojic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid, Pyruvic Acid)
Cruelty free, vegan, made in the USA as always
And a pH of 1.5-2.5 which is low!
And low is good!
The lower the pH the more acid it has, aka the more “effective” it is
Efficacy is measured by pH over %
This is a 7.5% acid complex
