“I Am THE Make-up Junkie” ‘s Marie Talks Getting the Glow Going with a Peel!
Aethetician, make-up artist, and all things beauty- obsessed, “I am THE Makeup Junkie”‘s Marie has a lot of knowledge to impart and one of them is about peels. In fact there will be another post that talks about peels more in depth.
Let me tell you something. I like peels. I love the idea of putting acid on my face and having layers of old, dead skin peel off to reveal youthful glowy skin underneath. How fun is that? I have normal skin that is not sensitive and can in summer be a little more oily in the T-Zone. So, I like to go full force with as much product as I can and peel away!
Currently I use a number of different things. I did find this site called Makeup Artist’s Choice that has cosmetics and skincare. Now I will tell you this. I am an esthetician and I am able to purchase their products without proof of a license and they have some products (like the Jessner’s peel and TCA peel) that should only be used by a professional. So, either these products are not professional strength or they are skirting the law. Hmmm…
In my last order, I bought the 40% Lactic Acid (1 oz. $33.75). I feel I can use this kind of product fairly easily so it isn’t an issue for me. I cleansed my face with my wonderful Clarisonic (another topic for a blog), dried, used the Prep Solution, and waited for it to be very dry and not damp. I then applied the peel with a cotton swab to my entire face. I really want to work on my T-Zone, since it is oilier, so I applied twice there. Then I, and this is kicker, left it on. I did not wash it off or neutralize it. On my skin I did feel some tingling but no redness. I waited 10 minutes and then applied their Argan Oil (1 oz. $10.00), which could act as a neutralizer, as it would just stop the peel from oxidizing. The next day I had some peeling on my forehead but that is the only place.
For anyone who hasn’t had a peel or any sort of significant facial work by an aesthetician, then you definitely want to read the rest of this blog post by Marie on her blog HERE
