Find out why!
Did you ever wonder why your skin is not as bright and clear as when you were young? The skin naturally replaces itself every 40 days, but this process slows down as we age. Accumulated dead skin cells causes the skin to look dull as it does not reflect light evenly. Peeling the skin removes dead skin cells and stimulates up your skin cell growth cycle which has many anti-ageing benefits for your skin. Regular peeling strengthens the outer layer of the skin, improves texture, softness, superficial blemishes and uneven skin tone.
Dr Philippa McCaffery has extensively researched and trialled many different types of peels over the years. Our peels are made from sugar cane, sour milk, mushroom and even bark.
Kourtney Kardashian says “My skin always feels cleansed, plumped & tightened after Skin Peels”
