As we age our skin’s natural cell renewal process slows down and cells which were once full of energy become sluggish, reducing radiance and tone.
Now a new glycolic peel kit from No 7 cosmetics at Boots promises to give “fast anti-ageing results” but is gentle enough to use at home.
Glycolic peels are cosmetic procedures used by dermatologists to renew and recharge the skin’s surface. The action of revealing new skin cells in this way helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for brighter, younger looking skin.
The peel kit contains enough solution for a month’s treatment and for best results, people are advised to use the three step regime twice a week on non-consecutive days for four weeks.
The makers claim that after four uses pores are refined, skin tone is improved and the appearance of fine lines is soothed to reveal younger looking skin.
* The Youthful Glycolic Peel Kit is available at a special introductory price of €26.50 until June 11.
