It’s a new month and I couldn’t be more excited to reveal the special for March. This month it’s all about CHEMICAL PEELS and I am thrilled for all of my friends here on the blog to jump in and really see what they’re about!
If you’ve never had a chemical peel before you may not know how great they can actually be for your skin. During this treatment, your skin is initially cleansed and prepped for the peel to fully penetrate. Chemical peel solutions are a thin watery-like substance and are applied to the face for 5-10 minutes. Depending on the strength and intensity of the peel, you can feel slight to moderate activity on the skin along with a warm flushing. The peel is designed to exfoliate thoroughly and slough off dead skin that cannot fully shed itself. The peel is then removed and followed with a cooling mask to calm the skin. Much like a regular facial, it ends with several nourishing and skin smoothing products to hydrate and soften the skin.
In the following days (usually at day 3) you will experience light to moderate peeling and flaking of the skin. The stronger the peel, the more you will peel. March is perfect weather for a “peel season” because it’s not too hot and it’s not too cold outside. Extreme weather can aggravate skin and you’re not tempted to be outside too long anyway as you would in the summer when it’s nice out.
Along with thorough exfoliation, chemical peels are also great for: reducing fine lines and scarring, minimizing dark spots/sun damage, lightening melasma, stimulating collagen and elastin (what makes your skin firm and plump), brightening and tightening the skin and allowing other products to penetrate deeper (which is great for the expensive moisturizer that sits on your bathroom shelf.)
Blush Spa is featuring two peels this month, the Image Skincare Passion Peptide Peel (just a tune-up) and it’s great for anyone and I mean ANYONE! Teens, acne, brides, pregnancy, sensitive, first-timers…you name it! Most people experience little to no peeling with this one. $50
The other peel (deep clean & squeaky clean) features the Image Skincare Signature 4-Layer Facial Peel. This peel is a bit more intense treatment and will produce a greater amount of “flaking” with an added retinol booster. $55
