Dr. Sheth’s Basic Brightening Extra Gentle Daily Peel DEALS
If you talk about exfoliation the first thing that comes to anyone’s mind is scrubs. Scrubs may be oatmeal, sugar, anything with granules or textures. To put it simply, chemical exfoliants use acids or enzymes. This helps to dissolve and loosen the cells, whereas physical exfoliants work by scrubbing away the dead skin.
Exfoliation, in general, helps to reveal a fresh, bright skin that is often underneath the dead skin cells. Both exfoliation work, but it is easy to aggravate your skin if not used properly. You can end up stripping your skin’s barrier or cause micro-tears by scrubbing too hard. Thus making way for infection. Dr Sheth’s Gentle Daily Peel is a gentle exfoliant that is supposedly safe for everyday use.
I personally prefer chemical exfoliation over physical. Dr Sheth’s Basic Brightening Extra Gentle Daily Peel is one such chemical exfoliant. Its key ingredients are Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid, Calendula Extracts and Pomegranate Extracts. All of which help in hydrating, resurfacing, calming and brightening.
This particular peel is excellent for beginners, as the acids aren’t as strong. So if you are accustomed to chemical peels or chemical exfoliation, you will not find it as effective.
For starters, I find this to be very mild. It helps to brighten the skin and also makes it quite soft. Also has a mild tingling feeling which is normal for most chemical exfoliants. It is a lotion based peel and is hydrating. Does not irritate the skin or make it overly dry.
Although it says daily peel, I prefer to keep it at twice a week. I have had chemical peels done in clinics hence my skin is used to it. When I started it initially I couldn’t find any difference. My skin felt more or less the same. However, with consistent use over time, I am able to see good results. I will reiterate that it is not the most suitable for those whose skin is used to peels. It comes in a 50 ml pump bottle. My only problem is the fact that their pumps are hit or miss.
For beginners, yes. For seasoned users, you can pass. Unless the idea of using a chemical exfoliant every day appeals to you. (Again, wouldn’t recommend that)
How To Use?
This peel can be used in three ways. You can use it as a mask, or an overnight lotion. It also works great as a spot corrector. You can watch this video for a quick demo.
