Green Peels-Worth the Cost

One of the best skin treatments I did pre-wedding is a Green Peel. This is an all-natural peel versus the more common chemical ones that can have harsh ingredients.

The Green Peel is made up natural plant ingredients, and when rubbed into your skin, causes it to flake and peel off in about 4-5 days. The result is beautiful skin and a perfect non-surgical option. This peel is especially great for acne-prone people because this helps clear up zits and minimizes pores. It also helps get rid of scars, aged and sun-damaged skin.

When you first get the peel done, your skin will look great. It looks like you've spent a day at the beach, and you'll look a little sunburned. For the next several days, your skin will flake off, and about 5 days after you get the peel, you'll go back into your esthetician to get a facial that helps remove any remaining peeling skin. Once you get the facial, your skin will look brighter, healthier and younger looking. I got two peels done before the wedding. (I would usually schedule this for a Thursday so the worst peeling happened over the weekend and I could hide out.)

Along with the facial 5 days later (which is included in the cost) you get some very cool products including a blemish balm that helps cover any acne or problem spots, you get a cooling lotion and also a rockin' toner. It's the most refreshing toner I've ever used and makes my skin feel great!

Green peels (like anything else) aren't cheap, usually a couple hundred dollars, but the results from mine lasted about a year.

Good luck and keep looking beautiful!

  1. Jeannie, can I ask where you got the Green Peel done? Haven't done one in ages (and never in NY), but want to make sure I find a good and trustworthy aesthetician. Thanks.
