Exfoliation is one of the most important steps in any skincare system and forms the foundation to prepare the skin for subsequent skincare. Effective exfoliation should be done regularly, consistently, and safely.
Regular treatment with fruit acids is one of the best ways to exfoliate the skin and is the key to skin regeneration. It provides multiple benefits to the skin without negatively impacting the deeper layers of the skin.
Fruit acid treatment ensures that the intercellular glue in the epidermis begins to soften up, this is particularly important with mature skin as this glue toughens with age. The dry scaly, dead skin cells embedded in the adhesive can begin to break away, stimulating cell regeneration and production. The skin is immediately firmer, smoother, softer, and more radiant.
Fruit acids also accelerate the renewal of ‘sleeping’ fibroblasts by interacting with growth factors to increase and stimulate collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production. New life is bought to the skin by increasing oxygen, nutrients, and moisture.
Is it possible to Over-Exfoliate?
As it turns out you can have too much of a good thing for your face. Over-exfoliating is one of the biggest mistakes clients can make and can leave the skin feeling irritated, dry, and flaky. It can also cause a burning sensation, breakouts, and increased sensitivity to other products in your routine.
The skin may develop a tight, wax-like texture which can be mistaken for a glow but in reality, the skin has been stripped of essential oils. A healthy glow will always look plump and hydrated not dry, thin, or waxy.
Fortunately peeling with QMS is safe and effective. Our fruit acid complexes are combined with anti-irritant and hydrating ingredients to ensure that there is no downtime, undesired side effects or trauma to the skin. They are safe for all skin types and conditions, even sensitive and problematic skin, can be used all year round because there is no sensitivity to the sun, and it does not make the skin thin with a waxy ‘glow’. Instead, your skin will appear firmer, plumper, more even with improved radiance.

What is the difference between AHA, BHA and PHA?
AHA or Alpha Hydroxy Acids has the strongest exfoliating effect on the skin and is highly recommended for dry and mature skin. The most common AHA is glycolic acid and is excellent for hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, fine line and wrinkles, dryness with flaking and dull skin complexions.
BHA or Beta Hydroxy Acids is gentler on the skin and highly recommended for oily and acne-prone skin. The most common BHA is salicylic acid and effectively dissolves oil deep within our pores, treats acne and blackheads and has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe redness.
PHA or Poly Hydroxy Acids is the mildest of all the acids and highly recommended for sensitive skin with redness. A common PHA is lacticbionic acid that locks in plenty of moisture, works like an antioxidant and is ideal for sensitive skin and rosacea.
