You may recall last fall we ran a Green vs. Glow Peel Challenge. We asked a few of those who took part, which peel they preferred. Well, apparently that was a difficult choice! They really couldn't entirely decide. Most liked both for different reasons, but we made them choose one. Here are the results and a few testimonials….
Glow Peel - 54%
Green Peel - 46%
A peel is a great way to get rid of that dull, dry layer of skin that as we age, takes it's sweet time to exfoliate on its own. In our younger years, our skin naturally regenerates itself. As we age, we need to help it along. Peels help us do just that. There are many different types of peels which focus on different things. Our favourites and most popular are the Green Peel and the Glow Peel. There are different levels of each. If you have never tried a peel, we would recommend you start with a light peel and see how you and your skin do.
How to Choose a Peel
The easiest way? Book a free consultation and see what peel would meet your needs. It really does depend on how sensitive your skin is, what events you may have coming up, what treatments you've done in the past and a biggie - what your definition of "downtime" is. Some clients are willing to peel for days to get an amazing result - while others want to peel as lightly as possible (or not at all)!
What to Expect
Peeling. With a medium to intense peel, you will PEEL. However, if you keep the skin hydrated afterwards - no one will really notice. On day 3/4 you will peel the most. We always recommend you bring your aftercare cream with you everywhere you go, and keep slathering it on throughout the day as needed. After day 5, enjoy that beautiful glowing skin! And for heaven's sake take good care of it! Daily 40+SPF people! YES! Even in the Winter, even when it's a gray day, even in the rain! The harmful, aging UVB rays are still looking for you - even when it's overcast and gloomy.
