Not enough time to regularly see an esthetician for a facial? Our Berkeley Salon carries facial products from both Valmont and Eva’s Esthetics -Tu’eL. We recommend the dynamic duo of Tu’eL Peeling Cream and Glyco-A Gel to get professional exfoliating results at home. Peeling Cream is a particulate friction emulsion that is created from pulverized pumice and diatom algae (not some harsh over the counter apricot kernels). Glyco-A Gel is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that gently aids in surface exfoliation. AHAs are derived from naturally occuring fruit sugars. They dissolve the “glue” that holds the dead skin cells together.
For your home exfoliating facial, use a dime size of both the Peeling Cream and the Glyco-A Gel. Mix them together and massage the combo onto dry skin for 1-3 minutes depending on the sensitivity of your skin. Let the mixture dry on your skin for 5 minutes. Rinse with cool water. For best results, follow your exfoliating treatment with your favorite hydrating serum/cream. Or to go the extra mile, follow with an anti-aging mask like Tu’eL’s Regenerative Firming Mask. This exfoliation can be done 1 to 2 times a week. You will love the results!
