Why Aqua Peels?

Aqua peels are one of the most popular treatments in dermatology clinics in Korea – and for very good reason. These express treatments blitz pores with an exfoliating water-based gel and a suction device that literally pulls out gunk from the skin and removes blackheads, while skin is flooded with moisture. It’s often combined with other powerful active ingredients to really deliver a punch. By combining the naturally exfoliating power of water with hydrating hyaluronic acid and botanicals, aqua peels slough off dead cells without using harsh acids.

The results – think smooth, glowing and evenly toned skin – are impressive, which explains why many Korean women are visiting their dermatologist two or three times a week for a lunchtime treatment, it also requires zero recovery time. Hot on the heels of this hugely popular in-clinic service are DIY at-home versions of the aqua peel, which combine brightening lactic and glycolic acids.

But the benefits of water don’t end there. We all know the eight-glasses-a-day rule, but now ‘carbonated cleansing’ is gaining traction – it’s an increasingly popular search term and a very simple mini-treatment to carry out at home. Essentially, it consists of cleansing your face with fizzy water and allowing the bubbles to purify pores and remove dead skin cells.  It’s thought that carbonated water causes blood vessels to dilate and improves the absorption of topical ingredients.
