Micro-peeling for a new skin

In the depths of winter, your skin is looking grey and you'd like to regain a luminous complexion? Are wrinkles and fine lines intensifying on your face, giving you a tired look that you'd like to tone down? It's possible, thanks to micro-peeling, a technique that revives the complexion, smoothes the epidermis and gives your skin a new youthfulness. The good news is that micro-peeling isn't just for dermatologists' surgeries - it can also be safely performed at home, thanks to ultra-targeted treatments! We take a look at this beauty must-have.

What is micro-peeling?

The word "peeling" literally means "to peel". Applying a peeling treatment to the skin involves using a specific product, with chemical or enzymatic action, to dissolve keratin (found in the superficial layer of the epidermis) and eliminate dead cells that dull the complexion. This technique also helps toreduce wrinkles and fine lines caused by skin ageing, as well as scars, blemishes and any unsightly spots (such as pregnancy masks) that may lodge on the skin.

But that's not all! By performing this treatment, the production of collagen and elastin, naturally present in the skin, will be activated or even reactivated. Over time, this production diminishes and the skin wrinkles: it becomes less supple, less elastic. The result, as you know, is the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, much to your dismay! Micro-peeling will help your skin to fight against sagging and the passage of time.

It's a common misconception that micro-peeling is a recent cosmetic innovation, yet the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans were already enjoying its effects in ancient times! Historians have proven that they collected tartaric acid from wine lees or citric acid from lemons and applied it to their skin to revive it. The process has certainly been refined and The active ingredients improved, but the principle itself has survived the centuries to reach us - proof, if any were needed, of its effectiveness!

Today's peels are generally formulated withglycolic acid (AHA) or salicylic acid. They can be carried out by a dermatologist (this is called a medical peel, as it is carried out under the supervision of a doctor): there are several dosages, depending on the desired effect and the extent of the problems to be treated. It's a fairly costly and time-consuming process, generally spread over several sessions. But peels can also be carried out at home, thanks to specific treatments. This is known as aesthetic micro-peeling. At Polaar, our Eclat Boréal range has been specially designed to enable you to enjoy its benefits at home, and regain beautiful , smooth skin day after day.


The active ingredients exceptional Polaar for a micro-peel of the face at home

In our NORTHERN LIGHT range, we have selected two magical active ingredients capable of giving you a luminous complexion and perfecting your skin texture instantly!

L'Siberian Olive is one of them! Carefully harvested in the heart of the Tundra, these little berries from the cold are actually super-fruits.

Judge for yourself: they're bursting with vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3 and B6 - and not just a little, since they contain 30 times more vitamin C than an orange, 9 times more vitamin A than a carrot, and 3 times more vitamin E than sunflower oil!

They also contain carotenoids (for a luminous complexion), flavonoids, 18 amino acids (which protect against skin aging), Omega 3, 6 and 9 and essential minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, manganese, copper...) to deeply moisturize and nourish the epidermis.

As you can see, its wealth of bio-active elements (108 in all) makes Siberian Olive a particularly interesting super-ingredient, capable of acting on all levels: it moisturizes, nourishes and regenerates the skin, while protecting cells against free radicals, oxidation and external elements that can prematurely age the skin. A real cocktail of benefits for tired skin! The fruit is harvested in the wild, then pressed and macerated under heat. The solution is then filtered and clarified to bring you this unique and precious active ingredient, without damaging its original environment.

We've combined it with the 1st 100% natural salicylic acid for exfoliating action. This plant-based substance is better tolerated by sensitive skin than the synthetic version frequently used in cosmetics. In our formulas, we give priority to The active ingredients botanicals, naturally present in the environment, whenever possible, which is why our active ingredient is derived from shrubs growing in North America.

It acts as an exfoliant: in contact with the skin and without mechanical action, salicylic acid helps eliminate dead cells that can dull the complexion, unclogging pores and treating skin imperfections.

Finally, to complete this super-powerful duo, we've added a third new-generation active ingredient to the range, which acts like a shield against pollution. Like an invisible film, it prevents impurities from penetrating the epidermis and dulling the complexion!
