Pollution & detox spa treatments: What you need to know


Detox spa treatment

We live in a toxic world. Between pollution, poor nutrition, climate, stress, medication and lifestyle our bodies and skin can hardly catch a break. Detox spa treatments, like chemical peels, are now more important than ever to keep skin looking young, balanced and healthy. Keep reading to see why you need this detox spa treatment.


Pollution and your skin

Daily pollution exposes us to dirt, smog, exhaust fumes, industrial smoke, ozone, toxic gases and skin aging free radicals. These factors are absorbed into the skin and sap much need minerals and nutrients, leaving you vulnerable to wrinkles, age spots, dehydration, dullness, irritation and much more. In simpler terms, if your skin is exposed to daily pollution it will become prematurely aged and weakened.

Think you’re safe because you don’t live in a big city? Think again. The top ten most polluted cities in the United States are not where you think they are. See for yourself.

In fact, The World Health Organization announced that a whopping 92% of the world’s population is breathing in polluted air, and live in places where outdoor air quality fails to meet their guidelines for safety.

With pollution on the rise, skin toxicity is now more present than ever.


The detox spa treatments you need

Old school chemical peels that remove the top layer of your skin and leave you red and flaking are a thing of the past. Today’s non-ablative professional chemical peels do more than just exfoliate.

Bioelements Ultra-Detox Chemical Peels provide omni-benefit exfoliation through acid-hybrid technology. This means our chemical peels target both intrinsic and extrinsic aging concerns, including detoxification against pollution. Bioelements chemical peels accomplish the following in each treatment:

1) Hydrate

Thanks to a complex fruit acid blend, cucumber fruit extract, and aloe leaf extract, chemical peels can actually be hydrating. This is crucial in today’s highly polluted world, because pollution actively robs the skin of moisture, leading to flakiness, worsening wrinkles and rough texture.

2) Sedate

Bioelements Ultra-Detox Chemical Peels are pain-free and have zero downtime.  The multi-acid formula is gentler than other formulas and the formula contains a cocktail of natural ingredients that buffer the exfoliation, sedate and strengthen the skin.

3) Detoxify

Activated coconut charcoal filters out toxins by penetrating deep into the tissues of your skin to stimulate circulation and draw out impurities and heavy metals.

4) Nourish

Derived from the ash of a burnt coconut shell, activated coconut charcoal also helps nourish your skin as it pulls environmental impurities out.

5) Exfoliate

The multi-acid formula includes both glycolic and lactic acids to gently exfoliate dead, dulling skin cells and debris to reveal skin that is brighter, softer, and revitalized.

In addition to pulling out environmental toxins, you will see immediate, visible results as Ultra-Detox Chemical Peels can also help tackle rough texture, lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, breakouts, congestion, hyperpigmentation and more. Skin is left glowing, with no flaking, no redness, and no downtime.
