In this article, we’ll talk about a peeling you can do in your home, from The Ordinary line, which is part of the Deciem brand. We clarify right away that this article is not sponsored, it is a product that we bought and tried – we will only present an unbiased opinion!
The homemade peeling, made with the right products and the correct way, allows to remove the dead cells of the superficial layer of the epidermis, to unclog the pores and to diminish the inflammation. Done with regularity, it contributes to soften the superficial ridges and the spots, generating a more radiant and uniform skin.
The AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution from The Ordinary line (brand Deciem) is advertised as vegan, made without animal cruelty, alcohol-free, oil-free, gluten-free and suitable for people allergic to nuts. It costs only € 7.20 and is presented in a glass container with dropper system. It has only 30 ml, but it applies a very reduced amount of each time, reason why it lasts enough; it is advisable to store it the refrigerator after the initial opening.
Although the brand suggests the application of this product twice a week, it seems to us that one application per week is sufficient, especially for thinner and more sensitive skins. We also consider it appropriate to do a small allergy test before the first use: rub a drop of the product on the inside of the wrist, wait 10 minutes and remove with water, making sure that no signs of allergy appear, such as pimples, itching and inflammation of the skin.
The product has as its main ingredients 30% of alpha-hydroxy acids (natural substances found in some foods), 2% of salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid and vitamin B5.
Application should be done at night. After removing the makeup and with very dry skin, apply the product with the fingertips all over the face, avoiding the area of the eyes and lips. The eyedropper system allows the product to be easily dosed and the fact that it is slightly viscous causes it to not flow to undue places. Then let it act for 10 minutes. It is normal to feel some bites here and there. However, if you feel heartburn, remove the product immediately. To do this, you should use cotton soaked in warm water and, finally, rinse your face with plenty of water.
After doing this peeling, you should apply only a moisturizing cream all over the face. The next day, you will notice that your skin is much softer and brighter. It is undoubtedly a product with an excellent quality / price ratio!
