Regular exfoliation is one of the important rituals in skin care. Our skin is renewed daily, and dead, keratinized old cells constantly appear on the surface. Normally, these cells exfoliate themselves, but contaminated air, stress, hormonal and age-related changes disrupt this process. Skin fat sticks dead cells to keratin scales that remain on the surface and cause many skin problems – they give the skin a dull grayish tint, lead to clogging of pores and the development of inflammation. Therefore, our skin needs help in the form of soft, regular and very delicate exfoliation. Peeling of a skating rink is ideal for this.
Peeling – skating, delicate cleansing and skin renewal
For problematic skin with inflammation and acne, as well as sensitive, dry, thin skin, aggressive scrubs and exfoliants with mechanical exfoliating particles are not suitable – they injure the skin and worsen its condition. And here soft peeling gommages come to the rescue, or, as they are also called, “peeling – rolling”, which are very popular in Korean and Japanese cosmetics.
The essence of these peelings is that the product literally rolls over the skin like an eraser, capturing dirt and dead cells from the surface. At the same time, the peeling of the roll does not contain hard particles, therefore it does not scratch the skin and does not damage it, and is a very gentle and delicate exfoliating agent.
In addition to effective skin cleansing, skating peeling also has a gentle massage effect, improves blood circulation, accelerates cell metabolism, eliminates stagnation and stimulates skin cell regeneration.
Asian roll peels are made on the basis of cellulose. Most often, they also contain the enzyme papain and some fruit acids – often in the form of fruit extracts. Cellulose is a soft sorbent, during the massage it effectively captures sebum, impurities, keratin flakes and cleanses the skin.
Papain and fruit acids soften the stratum corneum and accelerate the exfoliation of dead cells. Fruit acids also stimulate collagen synthesis, have a moisturizing effect and improve skin elasticity..
Korean cosmetic brands also often add soothing ingredients to peels that relieve irritation and inflammation and accelerate skin healing – such as allantoin, panthenol (vitamin B6), and purslane extract.
How to use peeling – rolling
Apply a sufficient amount to cleansed, dry skin of the face, avoiding the lips and eyes. You can leave the product for 1-2 minutes, or you can immediately immediately start massaging the skin with circular movements of the fingertips.
It is important to act delicately, not to actively rub the skin and not to allow it to stretch. Under the fingers, peeling will literally begin to roll into soft cellulose balls. It is enough to massage the skin for 1-2 minutes, then rinse off the remaining peeling with warm water.
