Beauty Discourse: Peeling Gels

      I first heard about peeling gels from my Aunt (who is really into Korean beauty products & skincare) who recommended that I use a peeling gel to gently exfoliate my acne-prone skin. They're very different from traditional exfoliators that we have here in the States. Luckily, I happened to already have a generous sample of Naruko's tea tree peeling gel. I used that sample to the very last dollop, and I don't think I will ever go back to traditional exfoliators after using peeling gels.

      Peeling gels are different from your traditional exfoliating scrub because they don't contain any of those hard granulated ingredients such as salt, sugar, or nut shells, that we here in the States commonly associate with "exfoliation." Instead, peeling gels are usually clear gels that when you rub onto your skin, your dead skin literally "clumps" into small balls. This may sound painful, but rest assured it isn't! And, it is somewhat satisfying to see all that dead skin being removed! Afterwards, you're left with noticeably smoother skin when you touch your face. 

      I highly recommend peeling gels if you're acne prone, have sensitive skin, or are just looking for a gentler exfoliation from your skincare. For those of you with oily skin, you may use the peeling gel as often as 2-3 times a week. For those of you with drier skin, try it once a week first and then see how your skin reacts.
