For the treatment of acne from mild to severe cases…
An exfoliant’s job is to make your skin peel — faster than it normally would. What this does is it gets rid of the “old” damaged epidermis, thus surfacing faster new skin, which of course is fresher, healthier, still undamaged, “whiter” (fairer than the old tanned skin) and considered more beautiful.
It is normal for skin to “break out” the first few days as it adjusts to the faster pace of peeling.
Splash is a Philippine company that has been a leader in manufacturing exfoliants in this market segment. MaxiPeel has undergone at least one reformulation a few years ago, so if you haven’t used it recently, it may feel different. Most users say the new formulation doesn’t sting as much as it used to. It’s not that it’s less effective — it’s just that there have been scientific breakthroughs that have made available ingredients that are not as harsh to the skin.
