Here is the thing, I work in an industry that is all about looks, and when you are a spokesperson for an array of brands and work with many more, especially skincare, you have to look good, and that’s when not only good skincare regime come into play but seeking out expert advise and expert services to stay looking your best does as well.
While a lot of us think about Samantha from sex and the city coming out of the doctor’s office looking like her face had been completely removed, nowadays, done properly, you should be able to leave your chemical peel looking fresh, not frightening.
So I did a bit of research and thanks to a tip off, I heard about AlumierMD.

So, great beauty brand, check, now it was time to meet with one of there experts and get a chemical peel.
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve skin texture and tone. An acid is applied to skin to lower the pH, which loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen.
Chemical peels have been used dating back to Ancient Egypt. Cleopatra used sour milk to improve the appearance of her skin, according to some sources. Lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid) is the active ingredient in sour milk.
Here is my before a scan, when my skin was checked for problem areas so they could address that in the session.
Now you may think chemical peel = Pain, well not for me, not in this case at least, I actually fell asleep during it I found it so relaxing, and no, I’m not narcoleptic.
The treatment was relaxing, refreshing, and not only that, I managed to also get a shoulder and neck massage while the products were on.
I left feeling refreshed and was not at all red.
In the days following I was given some aftercare products that I used as directed during my session to keep the treatment at it’s best and help the skin to continue its “healing”.
My skin, even in the midst of winter isn’t dry, the peel helped to clarify my skin, and all round just feels a bit healthier. I would highly recommend you treat yourself, your skin will thank you….and me!
