3 STEPS TO SMOOTH – ZO® MEDICAL RESULTS-DRIVEN PEEL

Posted by 09.28.12

ZO® Medical
Peels are the new black, when it comes to skin rejuvenation. This tried and true method of reversing skin damage has been overshadowed in recent years by laser and light technology, but facial peels are still one of the most effective ways to treat signs of aging, discoloration and UV damage. But not all peels are created equal. Some of the deeper peels around can leave you red and irritated for days. The new 3-Step Stimulation Peel from ZO® Medical works to improve the health of facial skin through exfoliation, cellular stimulating and a calming post-treatment cream – with little or no downtime.

PAPAYA POWER – NATURE’S SKIN RENEWAL PLAN

Posted by 07.30.12

Delicious in smoothies, salads or just eaten by itself, papaya is full of vitamins and antioxidants that can benefit your skin. This tree-grown fruit is packed with vitamin A, which helps with the formation of new skin cells, and vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps soften skin. In addition, papaya contains papain, an enzyme that provides exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, leaving your skin smooth and clear. With all these beneficial elements, no wonder the fruit is used in many anti-aging and anti-acne products. Here are some of our favorite exfoliating treatments and lotions.

PEEL-ON-THE-GO WITH PHILOSOPHY

If you’re a gal on the go, you’ll likely have little time to get a peel at the doctor’s office. But as we all know, daily exfoliation plays a key role in healthy, glowing skin, and using your Clarisonic alone won’t always cut it.

Philosophy – the brand that’s added every comfort food scent we know and love into our beauty routines – has an answer for you, and that’s the portable dual-step Microdelivery Triple-Acid Brightening Peel Pads ($68) . These are pre-saturated pads that are  individually wrapped in foil packs so you can take them everywhere you go. Simply wash your face, pat dry, and swipe these pads over your skin and leave them on.

What it promises to do: In a nutshell, this promises brighter skin, and was created to deliver a double whammy – anti-aging and brightening effects in one sleekly packaged pad.

What’s the formula? The “triple acid” formula consists of mandelic acid, azelaic acid, and phytic acid in one pre-saturated pad.

How to use? Use this once a week for the best results. It’s ultra portable and convenient for travel use, too.

Does it work? Absolutely! When I tried one pad, my skin instantly looked brighter. My skin tone was visibly more even (it helped lighten dark spots and scars). There was absolutely no tingling sensation either, so it was a pleasant experience, since many peels can leave the skin red and irritated.

The peel pads are an attractive alternative to the other two-step peels that the brand carries, plus the foil packs ensure each pad has the maximum potency and stays nice and fresh. You may initially balk at the price tag of $68 for a pack of 12, but considering that they really do work and are a much less expensive option than a trip to the dermatologist’s office, it’s an investment that’s worth it. Of course, I would not recommend the foil packs as a substitute for a stronger medical peel, but they are a good fill in in between doctor visits.

Purchase it at Sephora, or at QVC where you’ll get an added bonus of the Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash along with a 60-day money back guarantee.

A bright idea? Truly.
