Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Smooth and flawless skin greatly improves your physical appearance because it is among the parts of the body that people initially notice. One of the most popular skin treatments today is chemical peeling. A chemical peel is a procedure to smoothen the skin of the neck, hand, and more commonly the face through the application of a chemical solution. The chemicals cause the dead skin cells to shed off and peel to give way for the younger and fresher skin beneath. There are various kinds of chemical peels depending on the chemicals used in them including alpha hydroxy acid peel, beta hydroxy acid peel, retinoic acid peel, trichloroacetic acid peel, and phenol peel which is the strongest. Chemical peels can be done on your own or with the help of a medical professional. They can treat, acne scars, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, freckles, uneven skin tone, and rough skin.

But is Chemical Peels Right For You?

Chemical peels are very expensive and one session may cost up to $250 or more. But even if you have the budget you have to make sure that your skin can tolerate the process. These treatments have inherent risks and are not recommended for people with very sensitive skin. In fact, even if you have a normal healthy skin, frequent chemical peeling may still harm you since old skin cells have protective substances for the skin. Known side effects of these treatments are:

- Permanent reduction of the skin’s ability to produce pigment and therefore you’ll have to wear sun block all your life

- Skin atrophy or wasting of skin

- Erythema or redness

- Whiteheads and pigmentary and textural changes on the skin

You don’t have to suffer these, however. There are many natural ways of exfoliating and peeling your skin which are safer, not to mention, less expensive. In fact, you’ll only need common ingredients from your kitchen. For example, just mash fruits like papaya, banana, pineapple, avocado, kiwi, pomegranate, or peach then add yogurt, lime juice, or honey. Apply on face and other problem areas on your body, then rinse, and wipe dry. These fruits contain naturally occurring alpha hydroxyl acids so they dissolve dead cells effectively just like artificial peels. If you do not have fruits available, you can use coffee grounds, sugar, or salt mixed with a few drops of extra virgin organic oil. You can also combine baking soda and a small amount of water

Even better than having to make your own products you can use a natural skin lightening cream that contains only safe and natural ingredients. The most important ingredient in this particular skin lightening cream is a substance known as Extrapone Nutgrass. It has naturally whitening effects on the skin. It also has anti aging properties that will help get rid of wrinkles and fine line while working to even out your skin tone.

You can do natural peeling on your face and body once or twice weekly. In between treatments, applying natural moisturizing lotion can help maintain your skin’s moisture while giving you smooth clear skin . Indeed, you can have great-looking skin without breaking the bank and risking your health.
