Fruit peeling is a gentle and natural peeling for the skin of the face. This type of peeling is called superficial, as it is applied as an ordinary scrub and does not imply any particular difficulty in applying.
What is fruit acid peeling?
Already from the name it is clear that this type of peeling is called so because of the fruit acids that are included in its composition. Fruit acids are substances that nature itself generously gives us. Natural components destroy dead cells and do not affect the functioning of healthy ones. This type of peeling is designed to reduce oily skin and its rejuvenation.
Differently, fruit acids are called ANA-acids or alpha-hydrochloric acids, and they can often be found in various creams and skin care products. In most cases, fruit acids are extracted from fruits, but they can also be produced artificially. Of course, it is best to choose acids of natural origin, they will be more useful.
Typically, the following fruit acids are taken for peeling:
- Glycolic acid- made from sugar cane, sometimes synthetic,
- Lactic acid- from tomatoes, blueberries or sour milk, it can also be synthetic,
- Apple- made from apples
- Winery - from grapes or wine,
- Lemon- from any citrus and pineapple.
How did fruit peeling appear?
Some are convinced that fruit acid peeling was invented relatively recently. In fact, this type of peeling appeared a long time ago, many thousands of years ago. Reliable information has been preserved that in ancient Rome and ancient Egypt, women made masks from grape and lemon juice, fermented milk and other similar products. And the queen Cleopatra herself often made baths of milk and washed her with infused wine. Women in ancient Russia spoiled their skin with masks of dairy products and berries.
In modern cosmetology, AHA-acids became known about 20 years ago. In America, peeling with fruit acids is already in full swing, and such peeling has reached Russia. Initially, this procedure was carried out for medicinal purposes, but later it turned out that acids improve the overall condition of the skin, reduce wrinkles and pigmentation, tighten it.
- Much less often you can come across negative reviews about peeling with fruit acids. Women describe that after applying peeling, their skin turned red, irritation and dryness appeared on it. There can be two options here, either the product is so low-grade, or it is simply picked up incorrectly. As already mentioned, each acid is suitable for a particular skin, so first study the properties of the product and then acquire it.
