How can I have a gentle skin peel and the use of flower acids for skin peels by Rhonda Allison? Red Lotus in Beaverton, Oregon tells you about flower acids.
Flower acids (phytic and pyruvic acids)—obtained from hibiscus chalices and lotus flowers, these are classified as second-generation AHAs because of they are non-irritating and provide more hydration than lactic acid while still stimulating turnover. Look to flower acid peels and masks (which clients love this time of year) to brighten skin tone, soften and dissolve cellular build up, balance oil production, rejuvenate the skin by creating desquamation, and deliver healing and hydrating support.
At Red Lotus, we use a few products in our treatment room that contain these acids. After using an acid, we then hydrate the skin with epidermal growth factors.
Daisy flower (Bellis perennis), a natural brightener, it counteracts age spots and balances hyperpigmentation. It decreases tyrosinase synthesis and reduces melanin production in the melanosomes.
Lotus (Lotus japonicus symbiosome) actively works to inhibit tyrosine activity and when used in an acid formula these effects are boosted. Lotus also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties, improves skin tone and provides hydration.
Hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa) has potent hydrating and soothing properties, and contains a unique mix of organic acids that are non-irritating. Hibiscus is very effective in softening and dissolving acne cysts, balancing oil production, and brightening and rejuvenating the skin by creating desquamation, and delivering healing and hydrating support.
