About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Quite Apeeling

Last week I gave fellow beauty blogger, Gouldylox a Skin Medica Rejuvenize Peel at La Papillon. She had expressed her pigmentation frustrations(one that I've shared in the past) and I knew this would be the most results oriented plan for her. Here is an image of her face under a Woods Lamp, which gives a more accurate reading of her sun damage. It is important to know medical grade peels do involve some downtime, since it promotes the sloughing of skin, similar to a bad sunburn.

Why a medical peel? You can get results in under a week that would take a prescription quality home skincare regimen at least 9-12 months to achieve. What are these results? This peel offers a reduction in fine lines, unclogs pores(it's amazing for acne),unveils a more luminous & even skin tone, lessens hyperpigmentation and stimulates collagen. A cocktail including salicylic acid & lactic acid is applied, which is then topped with retinoic acid(a form of vitamin A). Then in a few short days your skin looks and feels like a baby's!

Here's Gouldylox immediately following her peel(the retinoic acid leaves the skin a smidge yellow, but that's only temporary.) I highly recommend a medical peel to anyone who is serious about changing their skin. It is important to go over what to expect with your skin care professional and find out if it's right for you. (not all peels are created equal & offer the same results) Yes you will be literally peeling for about 3-5 days, but it's so worth it! Brides-to-be, are you listening? Find the time, you won't be disappointed. Just work backwards from any specific big events. Once the actual peel is applied, peeling will start around 48 hours after and will take @ 4 days to taper off. Allocate 7-10 days just in case. Take a daily behind the scenes peek & follow Gouldylox's progress on her blog, and check back here next week for before & after pics!

Peace. Love. Peels. M

Today is my first day wearing makeup and back in the office. While I am not yet finished peeling, my skin is looking beautiful!

I would love to get a peel done. I already have deep forehead wrinkles and lots of sun spots but that's what I get for living in Florida!

What is most apparent to me in these photos is that I need to see the Brow Whisperer to clean those things up!
