Get on Overstock and try one of the products from Perfect Image. It’s mild enough to use at home, but strong enough to burn your skin in you don’t follow the directions and leave it on too long. I’ve been using it for about a month and have noticed my skin has a more even tone and is brighter. My skin is olive too. It was about $35, band I will probably be buying more if my skin keeps looking fresher. It took a few uses, but I’m starting to see a difference.

@bbsoon2be:  Extra-Strength Dr. Dennis Gross Daily Alpha-Beta Peel Pads. They are 30 to a box and you can do a full week in a row and get it kick started and then do it once or twice a week as upkeep. They are amazing. Like INSTANT glow.

I LOVE the Philosophy brand.

@OctBride-2012:  I LOVE the Philosophy brand. That micro peel is awesome

 

I also love the Micro Exfoliating face wash. Leaves my skin super smooth and soft!

I just started using Garnier’s “Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel”… Can’t say how good it is yet since I’ve only used it one night thus far (though my skin was pretty smooth this morning) but it was voted “Best of” by Allure Magazine!

@bbsoon2be:  Towelettes all the way. They are big enough to even do your neck and chest!

Do you have any family or friends in beauty school? SO’s sister is in beauty school and they do treatments SO cheap. I could get 6 microdermabrasion treatments for just $125. It is half off their regular price of $250 for 6 treatments if you know a friend or family member who works there. Even if you don’t have connections, just call local beauty schools and ask how much their resurfacing treatments are and see if there is anything reasonable they can offer you. And the more treatments you buy at once, the cheaper each treatment will be.

I buy them from Makeup Artists Choice.  They have a bunch of different ones.  Right now I have been using the Fade Peel it is pretty good.  Their website explains everything quite thoroughly and you can buy mini sample sizes to try if you are not sure what you want.  

I am pretty experienced with doing my own peels, The Fade Peel is kind of a thick consistency and so at this point I just apply it with my fingers in the shower (after I have washed and dryed my face).  Then I wait until it really starts prickling and I cant stand it any more, then I just rinse and wash with a gentle soap.  I used to use cotton pads in front of the sink, this works better with a peel that is very liquidy in consistency.   

I have used peter thomas roth peels too which are nice,  but what you will find at Sephora or the like is not as strong as the MUAP peels, which are more of a Dr.’s office strength.  

I would also recommend going to the dermatologist or a medi-spa to get a peel, this way you can see how it is done, then you will feel confident to do your own.

@bbsoon2be:  I use the lactic acid one and the results have been pretty good. I do not have sun damage, but I do have freckles and it has even seemed to lessen their appearance through my makeup in only a month. And it doesn’t take a lot of the product. I read the reviews and did some product research before I got it. I didn’t want to ruin my skin so close to my wedding date, nor do I think any female ever aspires to ruin her skin.

@mrspriddy:  I second this. I started doing lactic acid peels from that website I ordered through, and I’m on my 4th treatment of doing it and my acne  hyperpigmentation scarring is looking less and less noticable. I highly reccommend! So much better to DIY if your brave. I havent had any major skin peeling, just slight flaking!
