GREEN PEEL® myths
Are you a GREEN PEEL® expert?
A new skin in just 5 days! The worldwide success of the original GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling is based on this promise – for more than 60 years. But there are also some myths around this natural peeling on herbal basis. We have checked these for you.
A GREEN PEEL® treatment can’t be performed during summertime
Not true. GREEN PEEL® is performed in over 50 countries worldwide, among others in South Africa and Spain. In these countries, the sun shines almost all year round and GREEN PEEL® treatments are still conducted. A GREEN PEEL® treatment can be done in any season. However, intensive sunbathing should initially be avoided after a GREEN PEEL® Classic treatment, as the rejuvenated, fresh skin is particularly sensitive to sunlight. In case of doubts, GREEN PEEL® Energy or Fresh Up treatment could be done instead.
I am not allowed to go into the sun
There is no absolute prohibition. Nobody has to stay at home for 5 days. Nevertheless, you should avoid sunbaths and extensive walks in the midday sun. UV and infrared rays are the biggest enemy of the skin. By avoiding this, the skin is protected against premature skin aging, sunburns and hyperpigmentation.
I look so bad, I have to take a week off
Every skin is individual and it cannot be said in advance how heavily the peeling occurs. Who still does not want to show oneself in public during the peeling process, should plan precisely. The optimal day for the GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling is on a Wednesday. The actual peeling starts on the third day, before there is only redness that will be covered with Blemish Balm. So the peeling process will take place on the weekend. The post-treatment follows on Monday. In comparison, the downtime of a TCA peeling or a phenol peel is about 10 to 14 days.
GREEN PEEL® is painful
The GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling treatment Classic is not a wellness treatment. It tingles during the treatment, but it is good to last. Nevertheless, everybody has a different sensibility. If you still have doubts, start with GREEN PEEL® Fresh Up or Energy.
GREEN PEEL® causes my skin to be thinner and more sensitive
That is not true. After a GREEN PEEL® treatment the skin is young and fresh, comparable with a baby skin. Obviously, you need to take special care of your skin. With every GREEN PEEL®, the skin becomes firmer and more resistant. The metabolism gets stimulated and the microcirculation as well as the interlocking of skin layers is improved (the skin becomes more compact). In addition, it ensures that the supply of the skin with oxygen and nutrients is improved. Furthermore, the connective tissue fibres (collagen- and elastin fibres) are activated, the regeneration gets stimulated and slag material will be removed.
GREEN PEEL® is “aggressive“
No, the GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling is purely natural and includes neither chemical substances nor abrasive particles. Even if the herbs get into the eye: this is not a problem. Just rinse the affected eye with water. The beautician does not wear gloves during the treatment, which implies working with natural ingredients.
I am allowed to take off the ”old“ skin
No, the ”old“ skin serves to protect the new skin underneath. As soon as the new skin is ready, the “old” skin comes off by itself.
GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling is only suited for impure skin with blemishes
No, GREEN PEEL® has an optimal comedolytic effect on impure skin or with acne. But it has more skills than this. GREEN PEEL® is perfectly suitable for wrinkles, loss of tension of the skin, for anti-aging treatments as well as pre-aging treatments, for pregnancy stretch marks or scars. It is a multi-talent, because it is an energy supplier of tired, pale or pigmented skin and generally also for firming the skin.
My skin just peels slightly, the GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling does not work
That is not true. Every skin is individual – one peels more than another does. That has nothing to do with the actual impact. In the skin, the process of regeneration still takes place.
I am not allowed to take a shower during these 5 days
Of course, you are allowed to take a shower. Just keep in mind not to wash the treated area. Because if these get wet, the herbs could be washed out. Pat the skin dry, do not rub.
I am afraid that my tattoo / permanent make-up fades afterwards
No worries, GREEN PEEL® Herbal Peeling works in the top layer of the skin (Epidermis). Tattoos and permanent make-ups lie in the layer underneath (Corium). They will not get brighter or disappear completely through the treatment.
