Aqua Peel


Aqua peel in Korea is a trending treatment that promises the dewy glow or 'glass skin' as it is commonly known as. However this treatment doesn't just provide the glow on the surface of the skin but it goes deeper in to our skin layers. This helps to get rid of issues such as sun spots, discolouration, acne and other imperfections.

What is Aqua peel in Korea?

Aqua peeling is a two step process that cleanses your skin deeply but also moisturises the newly cleaned skin. Often, chemical peels and acne treatments can dry the skin out which irritates the skin more. This forces oil glands on our face to over produce the oil which then blocks our pores. This is because when the skin is too dry, the brain sends signals to make it moisturised and oil is the skin's natural moisturiser.

This is a very basic look in to the cause of acne which is affected by many factors such as hormones, age, environment and stress. However, it explains a key myth in taking care of acne prone skin.
