Posted by 04.20.17

The first step is admitting you have a problem. I’m an addict. A peel pad addict, that is. I can’t get enough of that squeaky-clean-smooth-skin-feeling you get after a few swipes. I love seeing all the grime and grit on the pad and not on my skin anymore. I get a rush just thinking about it.

There is a plethora of pads, gels and creamy peels to choose from now from mild to turbocharged. You can pick your poison. The real beauty of the new advanced crop of home peels is that they can be used on the face, neck chest, back of your hands, arms, legs, anywhere your skin needs help with sun damage, tone and texture.

Forget hemlines as a predictor of a sluggish or strong economy, cosmetic surgery may be as reliable of an indicator. And if this theory holds, let the good times roll.

Americans spent more than $15 billion dollars on combined surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic procedures in 2016, accounting for an 11% increase over the past year alone, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

Ka-ching!

This is the single largest dollar amount spent on cosmetic surgery since ASAPS began its Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics survey in 1997, and a $1.5 billion dollar increase in expenditures from 2015 alone.
