How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Chemical peels contain acids that dissolve and lift skin cells.

Once the product is applied to your skin, the acid molecules will get underneath the top layer of skin cells and separate them from your skin. This process removes dead and old skin cells and causes a new layer of skin cells to be exposed.

What are the types of Eczema?

Each Eczema differs in symptoms and causes. The following are the types of Eczema.

Eczema can run in families and may develop eventually. Eczema affects or reduces the skin’s lipid barrier, promoting water loss and causing dry skin. People with a history of Asthma and Hay fever have a high risk of developing Eczema.
