Chem peels in Edmonton's weather.

It is here. Winter is finally here.
After forgetting the fact that we have to endure the next three to five months with extreme weather conditions, we are back in that time again where our daily schedule means work, Netflix by the couch, sleep and repeat.
It is not easy for us Edmontonians to deal with this every year, but we’ve always managed the way to persevere.

Chemical Peels are the best facial option to book during the winter times. Light and Medium peels can take a week or two of healing before your skin returns to normal. This would be almost an impossible challenge over the summer because Sun exposure on Chemical Peels are a hazard to proper healing and may leave the skin reacting, causing dark spots or in the worst case, burnt.  As I become more aware of myself going into my 30’s, I am more aware of the fact that whatever I do to my health and skin today will have consequences in the future. Knowing this, I am booking my first chemical peel during the first heavy snowfall in Edmonton. 

BETTER BEFORE THAN LATER

Even though I still look young, my body is slowly leaving those good collagen production years behind! I used to eat whatever I craved, drink more coffee than water and leave home without sunscreen with no visible outcome from it. That’s over.

As I slowly became a 29 year old woman, I started noticing the repercussions of my skin reacting to one of my first enemies: Acne. Getting breakouts every time I order fried food and a sugar drink has become something that leaves me thinking twice about what I put into my body every single day. The worst part for me is that once the breakouts are gone, I can see the scars they leave. These scars don’t fade, this did not happen before. Being more conscious about my overall health comes with targeting potential consequences in the long future.

A chemical peel is a great skin treatment to target my acne scars, while giving me all the benefits from an enzyme peel, targeting hyperpigmentation, texture and some wrinkles I am slowly welcoming. 

Starting young with chemical peels will help  delay premature aging, target my few already visible wrinkles and help me get rid of my hyperpigmentation left by several breakouts. 

Also making sure that I have sunscreen with me will be the best after care I could possibly do. I recommend TUEL’s Daily Protectant SPF

THE BEST CHEM PEEL FOR YOUR SKIN CONCERN

Even though a chemical peel sounds like it will do the whole trick, it may not. That is why keeping in mind that one appointment is not enough, booking monthly appointments can benefit your skin in several ways. Sure, one chemical peel is going to make my face feel like  baby skin again, I am well aware that in order for me to target the age of my skin, I need to make regular treatments a priority.

With that in mind, going to my appointment fully knowing that my skin therapist will advise me which enzyme or chemical peel is the best option for my skin concern. I usually get super oily T-zone and dry cheeks. You have to fully trust your skin therapist on this one! They know better.
