I would make an appointment to talk to an experienced esthetician. They can help you plan out a treatment or a couple of treatments that will make your skin look it’s best on your day. In my experience, it takes about a week for your skin to recover from microdermabrasion/peel, but you will probably want to do it much further in advance, expecially if you don’t know how your skin will react to it. Good luck!

@Setsuna22:  Honestly you might be cutting it a little fine. My coworker got a chemical peel and it took weeks to heal. For days her skin looked like the worst sunburn in the world and literally weeped/oozed (she was about 30 yrs old when she had this done). 35 days is just over a month… not long πŸ™

I wouldn’t mess w. your skin. You don’t know how it’ll react.

Teeth whitening fine, but don’t mess w. your face.

I wouldnt do the skin peel.. 35 days is to short of a time as your skin may take longer to heal. Some ladies are good two weeks and some have been red & peeling skin for weeks..


(Ive done makeup/skin care for years)

Honestly, I would try an at-home peel.  There is a website called Makeupartistschoice.com and they have a large variety of different peels for different skin types.  I’ve bought several products from them (TCA peel, glycolic peel) and have been really satisfied. Just make sure to read instructions carefully and follow ALL the directions.  I would recommend the mildest level TCA or glycolic to start off.  These are just light “lunchtime” peels with hardly any flaking or down time.  They just exfoliate the top layer and give you a fresh glow. 

I hope I don’t come off sound like I’m shilling for them, because I’m not!  I’ve just used their products at home and have had good results.
