My local beauty salon have recently started offering Glycolic peels as part of their services.
I have some discolouration on my chin from teenage spots. The texture of the skin there is different to the rest of my skin. I spoke to the dermatologist about this and she recommended a mild glycolic peel. In order to prepare my skin for the a few treatments I was told to use this cleanser for a month before treatment (which cost €51!Extremely expensive for a cleanser!!)
It says on the box that the cleanser is suitable for all skin types that require deep clean, refining of pores, lines and congestion. It can be used to remove make-up which I’m quite thankful for as I couldn’t possibly add more steps into my beauty regime, I’m far too lazy! It also removes eye make-up remover without irritating your eyes.
I was told not to use this whilst on holiday as it can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
I’ve been using it for 2 weeks morning and before bed. The texture of the area has improved dramatically and I have seen a huge improvement in pore congestion. The dermatologist recommended I use this product for one month every year.
I’m really happy with the results so far. I’ll let you know my final verdict in 2 weeks :) Hopefully I won’t get any irritation.
I bought mine in Slender Health Beauty Salon in Dublin.
This particular product can only be sold by professionals because it has such a high percentage of glycolic acid(it doesn’t state what percentage on the box as it’s not sold commercially. I would suggest that you see a dermatologist if you want to try a similar product, as any glycolic acid product you can buy online will not not be the same strength and will not provide dramatic results.
