Skinceuticals Pigment Balancing Peel


I always find that this time of year shows off our skin at its worst.  We’ve just had our summer holidays and no doubt too much UV radiation.  The heaters are starting to burn up and our skin is feeling dull tight and flaky.  The buzz word in skin care in the last 5 years has been luminosity – that seeminly impossible to get pearly bing of light that emerges effortlessly from models faces in magazines.  Well bring on my personal favorite all around fixer Skinceuticals Pigment Balancing Peel.  I’ve been using these personally and for clients for over a year now.  Its a one step clinical procedure combining L-ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and glycolic acid to dramatically reduce dark spots and refine uneven tone of sundamaged skin.

Sanitizing boosters can also be added to the peel and as this is a stricly clinical procedure your clinical therapist can tailer make this peel to your specific requirements.

Peels certainly have become popular treatments however they should only be administered by trained professionals.  Also anyone having a peel needs to use SPF 50 on a long term basis after treatments.  The surface layer of the skin has been disturbed and is more vunerable to UV damage.  Also these treatments are not suitable for people suffering from Rosacea

  1. Hi Selene,

    Great blog!

    Don’t know if you can advise me? I’m in my mid (ish) 40s and I really feel my skin is getting duller and duller as the years go on. I’m a total product junkie but think I’m throwing too much cash after unrealistic product promises.
    I’m really nervous of a chemical peel though, is it not really harsh? I sort of imagine it could really damage/ burn my skin?
    Thanks for your advice!

    • Hi Elaine
      Thanks for the comment. The term chemical peel is a bit unfortunate to be honest. Every beauty product would have to use certain chemicals in their ingrediants. When we think about peels we congure up the image of Samantha from SATC running down the street with a red raw face. Approved retailers will use formulas that are low in concentration and the side effects usually are very mild redness for a few hours with a slight tingling sensation. The fabulous thing about peels is that they take the rough skin off and leave that glow were all searching for. The key thing is to get a good therapist who uses a good product for your particular skin type. A course of 6 peels are the way to go Elaine. Let me know how it works out for you x
