Skin peels are an extremely popular means of removing dead skin from the body. A skin peel is not just used on a person’s face but can target problem areas such as the back, shoulders, chest, and buttocks. The treatment – in which a carefully composed solution is used to stimulate the production of new skin cells – could be just what you’re looking for if you’re fed up with the amount of dead skin you have. Let’s look at what could happen if you don’t take action and your dead skin continues to persist.


Your dead skin can actually block your sweat glands, in the process creating a build-up of bacteria. Once this happens, there’s no way for the infectious material to escape and it could result in blackheads, whiteheads or acne over areas of your body. In other cases, it could lead to you developing hidradenitis, which would likely mean cysts. This won’t just be unsightly but can also be rather painful.


The beauty tricks you use at home can become ineffective if you have dead skin, such as creams and lotions which are used to moisturise your body and provide nourishment. Unfortunately, these ointments might not have the ability to become absorbed into your skin if there is too much blocked skin – and this could render them useless at providing the nourishment you deserve.


You might find that patches become noticeable in places where there’s a distinct amount of dead cells. This happens because your body will naturally be trying to replace your dead cells with new cells, but when this becomes difficult there is instead a built-up of both. The cells ultimately appear as raised patches and can be difficult to hide. This is a condition known as psoriasis, which affects both men and women equally in the UK.

Don’t sit back!
