How to Get Your Glow Back in Time for Valentine’s Day

As we age, our skin starts to lose the youthful radiance it once had. The signs of ageing can be made even more noticeable by harsh winter weather and lifestyle factors. Although the onset of ageing can be delayed or slowed down by following a healthy lifestyle, if there is a special occasion coming up, you might want to see an improvement in the appearance of your skin a little faster.

In these cases, a chemical peel could be the answer you are looking for. Peels can deliver visible results within a week, making them a good choice if you want to refresh your skin fast.

Why Should I Get a Chemical Peel?

Our skin appears to ‘glow’ because new, healthy skin cells reflect light. Dead skin cells don’t reflect as much light, so when there is a build up of dead cells on the surface of our skin, our skin appears dull. This build up of dead skin cells is caused by the cell renewal process slowing down as we age. Lifestyle and environmental factors such as harsh temperatures, dehydration, poor diet and smoking can also play a role in preventing the skin from renewing itself and causing the complexion to appear dull.

Although ageing is a natural process and we can’t stop it all together, we can slow it down or delay its onset. Chemical peels exfoliate the skin, causing this dull layer of skin to peel off and reveal new, glowing skin underneath. Peels get to work quickly, and the peeling process is usually over within a week, revealing radiant skin in time for any special Valentine’s plans you have.

About the Perfect Peel

The Perfect Peel is a unique type of chemical peel which uses a blend of acids and an antioxidant. The antioxidant Glutathione penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin, fighting free radical damage and delivering a brightening effect. The blend of active ingredients in the Perfect Peel exfoliates the skin while infusing the skin with other beneficial ingredients. The application process takes as little as 15 minutes, and a noticeable brightening effect should be visible within a week of treatment.

The Perfect Peel is suitable for all skin types, and is often used treat acne, scarring, uneven skin tone and sun damage. The antioxidant ingredient can not only improve your complexion but also delay the ageing process all together, making it an ideal treatment for when the first lines and wrinkles begin to appear.

Maintaining the Results

Try as we might, we can’t stop the ageing process altogether. You can help to maintain the results of your treatment and continue youthful for longer through quality skincare and a healthy lifestyle. Drinking plenty of water, limiting your salt and alcohol intake and giving up smoking will all help to maintain glowing skin. Your aesthetic practitioner will also be able to give you skincare advice following your treatment to maintain the effect.

Depending on the problem being treated, several peels may be needed to achieve and maintain your desired results.

If your skin is in need of a refresh ahead of a special occasion, The Perfect Peel could be right for you. Every day this week I will be sharing images and videos of a client who has recently had The Perfect Peel to track her results.
