As a makeup artist I am always talking to my clients about the importance on skin care. I always advise my clients to exfoliate their skin 2 times per week, with a mild gentle exfoliate. Plus I always have my clients exfoliate the night before I come to apply makeup. Super important to get that flawless look on the skin. I would like to take exfoliation one step further.
I have discovered a wonderful treatment, a deep exfoliation, that will leave your skin looking much younger and smoother. Its called the Russian Peel. I used to suffer with acne for most of my 20’s. I searched and tried so many different procedures. I finally found something that worked on my skin. Something that also renews the skin. The Russian Peel is made up of all natural ingredients. The main ingredient is seaweed. It has a gritty feel to it, almost like sand. I will be honest, this treatment isn’t the most comfortable. It does hurt at bit at the end. The product is applied to the skin wet, then is rubbed in a circular motion for about 5 mins, or until you can’t take it anymore. the product is then left on the skin as a mask for about 20 minutes. Once the 20 minutes is up, the product is taken off. No wetting the face for 24 hours. After that time, you can cleans the face and add your collagen and moisturizer. At this time you can now apply your mineral makeup. On the 3rd day, your skin will start to peel. A gentle gel based exfoliate is recommended to slough off the dead skin. After about a week, you will notice your new skin. You skin will look so amazingly fresh and beautiful. I personally have this treatment 2 times per year. It helps to keep my acne at bay and keeps my skin looking young and vibrant. Be sure to book your Russian Peel on a Friday after work on over a 3 day weekend. Your skin will look red and a bit swollen until about day 3. I personally don’t like to go out until I start to peel, or when the redness has subsided a bit.
The Russian Peel: This 100% natural treatment is particularly effective in controlling and eliminating acne, pimples and cysts. It normalizes sebaceous glands and improves healing of the skin. It is also extremely effective in treating hyper-pigmentation. You can have this procedure done at ICI Paris On the Danforth here in Toronto.
