NIKKISAVY FACIAL AND BODY PEELS

Facial Peels are a safe and easy way to rejuvenate a tired-looking complexion . Everyone loves a beauty treatment that gives instant results , hence our fascination with skin peels .
Peels vary , from the milder home DIY kits to stronger professional procedures . Whether you are after a mild exfoliation or something more serious , there's a peel for you .
 WHAT'S A PEEL ? A peel is simply another method of exfoliating , but instead of using a ‘mechanical' exfoliant such as a granular scrub , ‘chemical' exfoliants in the form of acids or enzymes are used to dissolve the glue that adheres dead cells to the skin's surface .
"Skin cells normally have a cycle of around 21 days" .  "A peel makes the skin turn over much faster , and also promotes collagen formation , giving a fresher complexion .
" MILD PEELS '' Most professional beauty salons offer mild AHA peels using glycolic , lactic or salicylic acids , often incorporated as part of a facial . These work to instantly freshen the complexion and prepare skin for maximum absorption of active ingredients by removing surface dead skin cells .
''MEDIUM PEELS''   Available at cosmetic clinics and specialised beauty salons, a medium peel can give excellent near-instant results . Some redness and flaking are usual but recovery time is minimal .
'' DEEP PEELS''  Used only by doctors , deep peels speed up the process of exfoliation dramatically by dissolving several layers of skin . After the treatment , skin is red, tender and flaky . It may take several days before the skin fully recovers .
 "AGGRESSIVE PEELS '' are used very little these days as most people don't want to put up with the pain and down-time that goes with them .
"It is much more common now to do a course of medium-strength peels to gain a gradual, but effective result.
" DIY PEELS ''  Home peels are a fantastic and convenient option for instant rejuvenation . But always read the instructions and don't be tempted to use more product or leave it on longer than advised .
 DID YOU KNOW ? Removing the top layers of the skin reduces your skin's natural sun protection , so you must use a SPF30+ sunscreen every day when using any type of peel, and stay out of the sun as much as possible . For this reason, the winter months are an ideal time to peel .
 DID YOU KNOW ? The action of removing the top layer of skin does more than just add radiance . Fine lines , large pores and scars may be reduced and uneven pigmentation sloughed away for a more even skin tone .
The extent of the results depends on the depth of the peel and your skin condition. Acid Test Acids used for facial skin peels may be artificial , such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA) used in deeper peels , or derived from a natural source such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) most of which come from fruits, sugar cane or milk.

Enzymes are usually naturally derived from fruits such as papaya or pineapple . Glycolic acid , occurring naturally in sugar cane , is one of the most commonly used AHAs . Lactic acid derived from milk is becoming increasingly popular , being a gentler option than glycolic acid , but with similar properties . 

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) . It exfoliates deep down into the pores and therefore is particularly beneficial for oily/acne skin types . Citric acid from citrus fruits is an AHA which also has astringent and antioxidant properties.

NIKKISAVY NIGHT GLOW

Night time is when the skin does its heavy lifting .
Like the rest of the body, skin does the bulk of its repairing, restoring, and regenerating while we sleep, so night creams are focused on moisture and recovery . They contain the most powerful , slow-absorbing moisturizers that are designed to penetrate over the course of several hours ; since there’s little to no concern about sun exposure, they also contain the highest concentrations of anti-aging compounds ingredients like retinol, glycolic acid, and hyaluronic acid  which are able to do their work without interference from sunscreens.
 The result is that night creams are often richer, thicker, or heavier than day creams . Of course , we don’t mind much , since most of us don’t wear makeup to bed , and the cream is usually absorbed by the time we wake up.

NIKKISAVY DAY GLOW

There are dramatically different ways to approach a skincare regimen.
Some women simply cleanse , moisturize once per day , or use a single all-purpose product , while some women have an arsenal of creams and serums that they apply at specific times of the day under specific circumstances . Often, members of one camp look on members of the other with disdain .
How could she not moisturize before bed ?  thinks one woman , while another wonders , Who really needs more than one face cream ?
 During the day , skin is subject to damaging UV rays , pollution , environmental stresses , and makeup , so creams designed for use during the day are primarily focused on protection and support . They contain SPF to prevent burning and photoaging , antioxidants to fight free radicals, and ingredients like caffeine to make skin look energized and firm .
Nikkisavy Day creams are designed to be worn under cosmetics, so they have light , nongreasy formulas that are absorbed quickly and allow pores to breathe . They provide a smooth, oil-free canvas for foundation to glide on smoothly.
