Taking the time to look after my skin is one of my new year resolutions and is something that I spent the last few months of 2017 focusing on. The two things I’ve been wanting to focus on fixing is my dry skin and my breakouts. In comes the Alumier MD Glow Peel from Crystal Rose Skin Clinic.
Based in Ipswich, the Crystal Rose Skin Clinic is tucked away in the owner Rosy’s beautiful garden and is the ultimate place to relax. In the middle of the countryside away from the noise of people and traffic, I knew I was going to enjoy my treatment…and hopefully the results too!
Rosy is a true expert when it comes to skincare and after an analysis of my skin confirmed that the Glow Peel is the treatment for me. The Glow Peel combines lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol, creating a multipurpose resurfacing solution effective in minimising the appearance of skin issues like discolouration and uneven skin tone. This formula exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates cell renewal. There’s definitely something satisfying about entering the new year with new skin (literally!). The number of layers that you have depends on your skin type and how sensitive your skin is to the treatment. It’s not exactly painful but when the liquid peel is being applied there’s definitely a stinging/burning sensation which is only temporary and lasts for about 30 seconds. About 30 minutes later, after the cleansing of the skin, the lactic acid being applied and the skin before soothed I was on my way with a home kit in hand.
