Why Is A Chemical Peel A Great Choice?

As described with an earlier blog about skin care in cold temperatures, due to the coming winter, many climates are experiencing colder and drier weather conditions. Hot air is more capable of holding water than cold air is, so as temperatures drop this winter, the humidity that helps to naturally moisturize our skin is decreasing as well. This change in weather may leave skin feeling and looking dry, flaky, or damaged. This is one reason why wintertime is a great time to acquire chemical peels! Rejuvenate the skin of yourself or a loved one to reveal the beautiful, healthy and young skin that lies beneath the troublesome outer layers. These peels can be used conveniently at home and if used correctly, can really transform a face.

At-Home Chemical Peel Options

The following is a list of some, but not all of the chemical peel options we have to offer:

  • AHA/BHA Acne Peels: These are the mildest forms of chemical peel formulas and produce light peels. They can be used for exfoliation, and can clear breakouts, minimize fine lines, and brighten complexion.
  • Glycolic Acid Peels: This type of peel has become one of the most requested and purchased peel, and works well in removing dead skin cells and thickening the living epidermis.

Dive Into Light Chemical Peels

Everything You May Want to Know When looking Deeper Into Chemical Peels

People who are new to chemical peels can quickly become overwhelmed with the many choices they face as there are several different types of peels available. If you’re confused about what type of chemical peel is a good choice for your skin, you should first understand what a chemical peel is and how it works.

Chemical peeling involves applying an acid solution to the skin to slough off the upper layer(s) of skin. As the outermost layer or layers of skin is removed, the new skin that replaces the sloughed off skin has fewer imperfections and is softer and smoother for a much improved appearance and feel. Peels can be used to diminish lines, wrinkles, acne scars, dark spots and roughness of the skin caused by sun damage.

There are three basic types of chemical peels: superficial or light chemical peels, medium peels and deep peels. Experts recommend that first-time users start out with a light peel that’s less harsh on the skin. This is because a light chemical peel contains a mild acid that works gently to only remove the uppermost layer of the skin.

What Light Chemical Peels Can Do

Light chemical peels can help if you want to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, mild acne scarring, skin discoloration and dry or flaking skin. Light chemical peels typically contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) and include glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid. You can achieve glowing and radiant skin quickly and easily with a light peel that you can apply in the privacy and comfort of your own home.

They are also lower in acidity concentration as well. Depending on the type of peel, these can be anywhere from a 5% Salicylic Acid Peel to a 15% Lactic Acid or 15% Glycolic Acid Peel. Now chemicals peels with acidity concentrations that are the same can produce different results. It’s not just about the acid level, it’s about the chemicals that go into each peel, and what each one can do for your particular skin’s needs.

Light chemical peels are sometimes called lunchtime peels because they are fast and easy to apply and allow you to return to work or go straight out afterwards without anyone knowing you’ve done the treatment. Your skin can be a little pink afterwards and you may see some mild flaking, but this can typically be hidden with makeup.

Dermalure offers a very wide range of high quality chemical peels. If you’re a first-time user, our Glycolic Acid 10% peel is a good choice for beginners. This peel is one of the most popular strengths and it produces immediate, noticeable results.

How Cold Weather Affects Your Skin

How Cold Weather Affects Your Skin


With winter coming up, we know many people are getting excited for cool nights spent around a fire with a good book, holiday fun seeing family and celebrating with loved ones, and maybe even a getaway or two to snowy mountain playgrounds. But winter brings more than just fun in the snow: that cold weather can do a number on your skin. To find out how winter affects your skin and what you can do about it, let’s dive into the science behind cold weather and skin.

Dry Air Damage

If you understand the concept of humidity, you already understand the core elements of how air affects skin. All air contains a certain percentage of water dissolved into the air: this is the humidity. Air with 100% humidity has as much water in it as it can hold, while air with 0% humidity has no water at all. For skin, humidity is generally a good thing. The higher the humidity, the more ambient moisture around your skin. The lower the humidity, the more the air will suck moisture away from skin and leave it dry.

Hot air is capable of holding more water than cold air, so as temperatures drop during the winter, humidity decreases as well. This has the effect of sapping moisture away and drying out your skin, often leaving it appearing flaky, dry, or even cracked and damaged. This is why winter can damage skin, leaving it cracked and dry.

You can do a number of things to help fight this damage. On a basic level, moisturizing creams and oils can replenish the moisture that the air sucks away from your skin, helping to combat dryness. For more severe dehydration, though, you might consider a chemical peel. Chemical peels lift away the dry, damaged top layers of the skin, revealing the healthier, younger skin that lies beneath. This new skin, which still retains more moisture, is easier to protect from the cold air by using moisturizers.
