If you are frequent on social media, you may have noticed the skin glow trend amongst celebrities across the globe and even in Nigeria.
A large number of celebrities continue to flood our timeline with images of their radiant makeup-free faces.
Have you been wondering what they do differently that makes their skin glow with so much radiance or Are you running in circles purchasing just about every product claiming to give you a glowing skin to no avail?
If your answer is YES, then you need to continue reading this.
Our skin glows when it’s smooth enough to reflect light. On the other hand, skin becomes dull when rough, dead skin cells pile up and diffuse light. Children and teenagers glow more easily because their skin cells turn over, or renew themselves, every 28 days on average.
As we age, this process increasingly slows down, and it is also always affected by other factors like overall health, diet, quality of sleep, medication, or hormonal changes that can cause cell turnover to take up to a few months. The result is that your skin becomes duller and loses some of its reflective qualities.
Asides maintaining a healthy skin care regimen using the right products, one of best-kept secret to achieving a radiant, clear and glowing complexion is a Chemical Peel.
Chemical peels are a medical or clinic-grade procedure in which a Chemical solution is applied to the skin to create accelerated exfoliation and peeling. The new skin is often smoother and less pigmented than the skin which comes away.
Chemical peels are usually divided into three main types:
Superficial peels are the mildest and affect only the upper layer of the skin (epidermis). Medium-depth peels act on the upper and middle skin layers; deep peels penetrate deeper still.
