Obagi Blue Radiance Skin Peel
Working at Good Skin Days its very tempting to try the different skin rejuvantion treatments whether it be Microdermabrasion, Clear and Brilliant, Dermaroller or a Chemical Peel. I decided on the Obagi Blue Radiance skin peel as my skin was feeling rough, dull, tired and I felt it had lost its glow.
I’ve never had a skin peel so I was a little nervous as my pain tolerance is very low! However I regularly have Laser hair removal and its a lot less painful.
Natasha cleansed my face using the Obagi Gentle Gel Cleanser then applied the peel. The Obagi Blue Radiance Peel contains Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Lactic acid which combined exfoliate the skin to remove dead skin cells, improve uneven skin tone and texture, and improve the appearance of any acne scarring, blemishes and fine lines. The salicylic acids also removes any blocked pores and reduces blackheads. The solution penetrates into your skin causing the skin to ‘peel’ which is the desired affect. The peeling skin is dead skin cells which have been removed from your skin leaving new, soft and more refined skin.
As Natasha applied the peel it was uncomfortable and stung for about 2 minutes, then eased and my face just felt warm. After the treatment my face was pink for an hour then it settled down. I would avoid going to the gym after a peel as sweating can irritate the skin. My skin the next day felt great! Baby soft! I did have areas of peeling( see image below) and Natasha highlighted these areas to me after my treatment and recommended applying SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel and to keep my skin hydrated and moisturised.
The next day my skin looked so much healthier! My skin felt firm, more radiant and silky smooth. I still have a few flaky patches so I applied SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture daily as well my daily Heliocare Gel SPF 50.
With this treatment your skin can peel up to ten days after the treatment so plan ahead if you have any events coming up. However I found the peeling wasn’t too aggressive and can easily be covered with tinted moisturisers such as Heliocare Gel Cream Color or Heliocare Hydragel Sun Touch SPF 50.
If your skin needs a boost I highly recommend this Skin Peel.
