Why going Natural?
Facial resurfacing is one of the most popular cosmetic skin rejuvenation procedures in Australia, however some of the deep skin peels come with significant risks: persistent redness, irritation, scarring, loss of pigmentation and demarcation lines can leave you with an abnormal epidermis. “Deep skin peels using acids and abrasives and even most forms of laser resurfacing are designed to create injury to the skin in order to generate re-growth of new skin cells,” says Herbal Aktiv Peel® Skincare Expert, Sue Dann. “They rely heavily on the individual body’s regenerative powers to improve the skin’s appearance, so there is always a level of unpredictability in the results. In contrast, the organic Herbal Aktiv Peel® works on the opposite end of the spectrum – instead of causing injury to the skin, the special blend of nutrient-rich herbs encourages and supports the skin’s natural renewal processes to reveal healthy- looking skin.” Skin care experts around the world agree that thorough exfoliation is the key to reducing the appearance of ageing or a dull, lifeless complexion. “Exfoliation makes the skin appear brighter and more translucent, the way it naturally does in our youth,” says Sue. However, just how that exfoliation is carried out is crucial to the outcome – instead of the synthetic acids and harsh abrasives used in traditional peels, the gentle epidermal action of the salon-only Herbal Aktiv Peel® achieves impressive results without causing skin injury, improving the appearance of wrinkles, pigmentation, scarring, stretch marks, freckles and acne.
The Herbal Aktiv Peel® contains a mixture of skin-revitalising ingredients, exfoliants and skin soothing herbs,including spirulina (which contains over 250 potent vitamins, minerals and trace elements); chamomile (an antimicrobial to help reduce inflammatory reactions and stimulate skin regeneration); Lungwort root (calcium crystals for gentle exfoliation); and aloe vera (which has an almost neutral pH value to help soothe inflammation and is known for its healing properties). “Herbs have the power to support the body’s innate natural renewal processes. They contain so many active parts that no laboratory in the world can produce a chemical formulation that matches their complexity and synergy.” says Sue. “The unique blend of herbs in the Herbal Aktiv Peel® is gentle yet effective, and the results on the skin speak for themselves.”
