Peels Activity pH & %
Peeling is one of the most common beauty treatment and one of the most effective treatments for improving skin complexion. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand the power of exfoliating materials and their compatibility with the customer’s various needs, from skin type and problem, to client’s lifestyle and character.
HL PROFESSIONAL PEELS are unique formula blend of acids, vitamins and plant extracts in the precision of the strength and suitability of the active ingredients.
STRENGHT & SUITABILITY
HL PEELS effective as 24-34% blend approximate pH 3.3 – 3.9
Strength I, II, III, IIII, V means of the concentration and ratio between the acids, is marked with Roman numerals from the lowest to the highest.
Suitability means of special ingredients chosen according to the treatment and skin condition: ALPHA PEEL, ANTI AGE PEEL, BALANCE PEEL, RENEW PEEL.
SPECIFIC & NON-SPECIFIC SKIN REACTION
- The percentage % of the peel indicates how much of the peeling agent is contained in the peel and shows specific stimulation reaction – cell’s activation and skin rejuvenation.
- pH shows non-specific reaction and indicates how deep the peel will penetrate into your skin and how much irritation you will get. The thing to remember is; the lower the pH(H+++protons), the deeper the peel. Anything with a PH of less than 2.5 should be done by a doctor or nurse. Beauty therapists cannot legally do anything lower than a 2.5. Peels with a pH of 3 are what you would usually find in a beauty salon.
HL PEELS UNIQUE PROPERTIES:
- Exfoliates by thoroughly removing the uneven, rough layer of dead skin cells, resulting in a more compact stratum corneum
- Penetrates through the upper layer of skin to begin exfoliation from the bottom up, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Increases thickness of dermis layer and smoothes lines as well as small scars
- Increases moisture retention by binding with water and pulling it through the stratum corneum, improving skin hydration and overall skin health
- Reduces the amount of surface skin oil, which aids the removal of blackheads and other skin impurities and can help stimulate collagen production within the dermis
- Regulates expression of genes through binding to nuclear transcription factors Increases activity of cells- speeding up skin cell turnover

On the third day, the skin could peel and POST PEEL KIT have to be used 3-5 times a day to help restore the skin.

There are several alternatives to facial cleansers which have been developed to deal with cleansing different skin types, and to avoid drying the skin. These maybe in any form such as creams, milks, liquids, foams, gels and lotions. Cream, milk or lotion cleansers are particularly suitable for removing make-up and other solid residues from dry skin. They use the dissolving action of oils to remove make-up and other products left on the skin’s surface. Facial cleansers should remove oils and other fatty secretions from the sebaceous glands in the skin, but at the same time they should not remove from the stratum corneum the natural lipids like ceramides, which have an important role in preventing an excessive loss of water from the skin.
THE RIGHT WAY TO USE A CLEANSER:
Gently is the right way. Do not stretch, drag or pull your skin. With the cleanser in your hand, let your fingers glide over your skin, or use light patting movements with the pads of your fingers. Upwards and outwards movements have frequently been suggested as the right way to apply all kinds of cream to the face – this is thought to prevent or delay the eventual loss of muscle tone and the reultant sagging of the skin. Leave the cleanser on for a minute or two so as to loosen dirt and make-up. Then gently remove it either with a cotton wool or with a tissue paper, again using upward and outward strokes. Wipe over the face again with a damp cotton wool ball, and if it does not come away clean, repeat the cleaning process. Finally rinse with water.
Lotions & Toners
Toners are meant to be used after cleansing. They based on ingredients that restore skin’s pH balance. Skin can never get too much of these important ingredients, which include antioxidants and skin-repairing substances such as glycerin, fatty acids, ceramides, etc. The right toner can give the skin a healthy dose of what it needs to look younger, fresher, and smoother, right after cleansing and throughout the day.
