Best At-Home Face Peel

best at-home face peel

It’s no secret that as we age epidermal cell turnover slows down. The skin doesn’t shed it’s outler layer as quickly, and the complexion looks duller, lines and sun spots become more visible and all the gunk sits on the face. Fortunately, there is a solution. I have found this Jessner’s Peel to work wonders. This best at-home face peel is light enough for frequent use, although I recommend using it once a week, and strong enough that it will have your skin exfoliating within days. Immediately you will notice the skin clearer, smoother, brighter and with continued use it only gets better; lines, sun and age spots dissapear.

The peel I am recommending comes with a strong Professional Medical Grade 30% Pure Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA Peel). This is the peel you would get if you were to go to the dermatologist for a chemical peel, and it would cost you a minimum of $300 per application. This peel is much stronger than the Jessner’s solution so if you use it, make sure you have a week off because you want to stay indoors and away from the sun.

Be VERY CAREFUL when you use the 30% TCA peel because it really burns the skin, it penetrates deep into the dermis because it is pure medical grade Trichloroacetic Acid. Of course you want to test it on a small area of your skin before full application to see how it works with your skin type. Use a cotton ball and a light even application across the face. Don’t try to rush it by using too much, you don’t want your skin to scar. Don’t be alarmed if you see frosting of the skin, it is normal. And if you accidentaly get too much on your face or fingers, or you can’t handle the burn, wash it with soap, soap neutralizes the acid. Plain water will not wash it off, it will sting it even more.

How I use the 30% TCA peel is that I add a few drops now and then to the Jessner’s peel to strengthen it a bit. If you have coarse skin you could probably have it a little more concentrated after a few month’s use. Don’t go mixing the solutions right off, test them out first, as is, Jessner’s peel works perfectly.

The TCA peel comes in a 25% as well, but for one dollar more, I recommend getting the 30%, it is the concentration dermatologists use for a chemical peel to smooth out scarring. And if you do have downtime and want to do a full on deep peel, the 30% works better.

The best part about the Jessner’s Peel is that you don’t need any downtime, you can use it regularly without looking scary. You just need to use a scrub to exfoliate the outer dead skin cells once the peel starts to work. And don’t forget to apply SPF Sunscreen. You should be using a sunscreen moisturizer daily anyway to prevent sun spots.

I use the Jessner’s solution and love it. It is the best at-home face peel. It helps to exfoliate my skin revealing fresh new skin. At 54.99$ I get continual exfoliation for the fraction of the price I would get at the dermatologist for one application. Depending on how often you use it, it can last you for a good year. Give it a try, I’m sure you’ll love it too. And let me know how it works out for you, would love to hear about it.

With Every Beat of My Heart

As the dust settles with the wind,

So my pen rises to settle the words wanting escape from this institution my body and mind have become.

No one direction, merely an exhalation of my emotions, a resurrection in deep need.

In the dichotomy of fragility and stubbornness, they float in limbo.

The heartbeats which beat disguise of pain or premonition.

Squeezed into a chamber, crying out for exhalation and resurrection.

Outside Looking In

Carla Golian, 2017, oil on canvas, 40 x 50 cm

Passes by, passing me by,
I watch, as the train goes by.
Hoping it’s not my life,
Passing me by.

Sitting on the outside, looking in.

A couple of days after I drew up a sketch for this painting, on August 11,  a train traveling from Cairo crashed into another in Port Said in Alexandria. It was an unfortunate tragic accident. Goes to show that sometimes, it’s not so bad being on the outside looking in.

Spirited Away

This painting is inspired by the Anime film, Spirited Away

I try to let go, to let go, to let go,
And to let go some more.

I try to hang on,
To the faith, to the hope, the beauty

I try to hang on,
To the promise that no one made,
The promise of the promised land.

The divine paradise.
To be,
Spirited Away.
