I used to have a fear of facial peels. I worried that my face would be red after or my sensitive skin could not handle it or I would have a breakout or get a rash after the treatment. Flashbacks to Sexy in the City come to mind, I also did not want to look like a lobster after.
In the past few months in the blog-zine, I have concentrated on more beauty stories for seasoned women. I want to start taking care of my skin early, for healthy, younger-looking skin now. I was invited to Thérapie Clinic for Mango Radiance Peel. When I said why not, maybe it will help my forehead wrinkles! Get over the fear and the clinic is right in the neighbourhood.
Facial Friday Review|Thérapie Clinic
I have to say the experience at the Thérapie Clinic was terrific. The staff and beauty technicians are so sweet. I was given compliment after compliment on my skin. I guess my new found beauty routine is working. What men do not understand is beauty is pain and pain in beauty and to look at this good cost money!
WHAT IS A MANGO BRIGHT PEEL?
Since my skin is in good condition for my age, the gentle peels would benefit me. We want to fight my dry skin areas forehead and cheeks. I suffer from a little dehydration and pigmentation because I do not use a sun protector SPF cream. Apologies I just don’t like them.
The Dermaquest Mango Bright peel is an exfoliation treatment which is excellent for lightening the appearance of dark spots and pigmentation and uses acids and mango pulp to create a brightening response on the skin. I am obsessed with products that make my skin look glowy. Another reason I am addicted to serums. I want that Rihanna glow all the time. It’s one of the best ways to make skin appear more youthful and healthy, so the Mango Bright Peel was right up my street.
WHAT’S THE PROCEDURE?
Below is a breakdown of the treatment.
1) Cleanse with an antioxidant cleanser followed by the glycolic cleanser.
2) Prep skin with balancing prep
3) Apply mango radiance peel for 7-10 minutes
4) Wipe off with neutralizer and water
5) Vitamin c enzyme mask for 7 minutes, massaging into skin and removal.
6) Hyaluronic acid serum
7) Followed by antioxidant SPF.
After cleansing the skin, a thin layer of the solution containing the acid and mango pulp is applied to the surface using a special little brush. The beauty technician continuously moves the brush around spreading the solution. In addition to helping spread the product, this also helps distract you from any tingling sensation, which made me feel like it was working and working out my skin.
The product is left on for about 10mins, then wiped off with a hot cloth to seal in all the goodness. After the skin is rubbed with an excellent hydrating Vitamin C serum. Vitamin C serum is my favourite and one of the critical elements of fighting anti-ageing. After they apply a moisturizer with Sunscreen, what the beauty technician says I need and should use.
Well, I have to say I walked out with a glow straight away that is what facial Fridays are made for right? After my Mango Bright Peel, my skin looked amazing that I was afraid to go outside into the city pollution. I decided to stay in the mall a little while longer and enjoy my beautiful skin. It was dewy like I liked it, plump, and glowy.
THE AFTER EFFECTS?
Like most facials, I have had my cheeks lately are always slight red, and the next day I felt like my forehead was shedding some dead skin, which was okay with me, get rid of that forehead lines, please. I also would not recommend this facial for people with acne it might spread or irritate it.
WHAT KIND OF POST-SKINCARE SHOULD YOU USE?
- Stay out of the sun as much as you can
- Apply a broad spectrum SPF
- Don’t apply any acids for at least 4 days – depending on your skin
- You can apply hyaluronic acid serums though as these will help your skin retain moisture as your skin can feel quite dry after a facial peel
