With all that has been going on in the past month taking care of ourselves can seem like a moot point, but it is important that we kick up our self-love more than ever. We have become unable to maintain our usual self-care regimens like going to the salon or seeing our dermatologists. What if I told you, you could peel away dull, dry and damaged skin from the comfort of your own home? When we think of chemical peels we envision the Beverly Hills women with a scarf around her face and a third-degree burn- but that isn’t what a chemical peel has to be. With our DIY chemical peel you can reveal a soft, smooth and supple layer of skin without the hassle- and all while watching Tiger King!
A chemical peel is the process of applying a chemical solution, like our Harmony Glycopolymer (Glycolic) Solution, to accelerate the exfoliation of dead skin cells to reveal fresh, new skin.
A chemical peel treatment is used for many skin concerns like acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Chemical peels are also great for reducing the appearance of sun damage throughout the years. When peeling away the surface level of skin you are left with improved color, tone, and texture.
Now during the quarantine. The biggest risk after getting a chemical peel is sun exposure as the skin is thinner and susceptible to UV damage. Staying at home significantly reduces your risk of sun damage or inflammation. If you do step out for a grocery run remember to wear a broad-spectrum SPF like our Protec Plus Natural SPF 30
You would typically visit a dermatologist or an esthetician to get a chemical peel. You can achieve the same results by doing a series of 4 weekly light chemical peel treatments at home. Start with cleansing your skin preferably with our Hydrating Cleanser. Saturate a cotton ball with the Harmony Glycopolymer Solution and sweep it over your face, neck and décolleté, a slight tingling sensation is normal. Let it act for a few minutes. Follow with the High Endurance Crème to nourish and revitalize your skin. Repeat every week for 4 weeks for plumper, brighter and more radiant complexion.
