Are you finding yourself spending more time staring at yourself in the mirror and admiring the new friends on your face? Yes those are wrinkles and they’re there to stay.
It could be a crow nestling by your eye or a new frown you know was waiting on your forehead to make an appearance. If you don’t like what you see then you could go down the line of getting some work done. Now we’re talking about a doctor holding a scalpel up anytime soon, but we wanted to let you know that there are treatments out to help your skin that are non-surgical and don’t carry a factor of risk.
One of the most popular treatments women are getting is a skin peel. Beacon Face & Dermatology in Dublin told us all about what someone should do when they want to get a peel. It doesn’t involve showing up on the day ill-prepared. A few weeks before you have to start increasing your intake of vitamins B & C and make sure you’re drinking 2 litres of water every day. You get a kit in the post that will show you how sensitive your skin is and lets you know what kind of peel you’ll be able to get.
The peel itself is where a mixture of lotions is applied to your skin. They lift and remove the outer cells of your skin. It’s done in stages to make sure your skin doesn’t react badly to the lotion. When the lotion is removed you’re left with skin that feels brand new and is completely cleaned out.
The process has no side affects or waiting period for your skin to recover. You can leave the clinic the same day and be able to put on make up the next morning. A peel won’t be for everyone of course, but it’s always interesting to know what exactly happens when you get one and how it works.
