The holidays are officially over and if you’re anything like me you may be feeling the need for a detox. The holidays can be so fun and magical, but they can also be stressful, and let’s not even talk about everything we eat and drink.
My skin was feeling the effects of my holiday hangover, so I popped into Vanity Lash Lounge last week for a chemical peel. I’ve had facials in the past but never a peel. From everything I new, my skin would be bright red after I left and would eventually begin to peel. Wrong. The type of peel they offer does all the ‘peeling’ while you’re in the chair!
The atmosphere is super swanky with dim lights and accent pink walls.
I sat down to fill out my paperwork and saw this. You guys, I have never been to a salon where they offer a cocktail while your service is being done. I’ve only seen places like this on T.V. I mean don’t get me wrong, I know they are around here in Seattle as well, but I hadn’t found one until now. Color me happy.
After I finished my paperwork the esthetician brought me into a private room where we talked about my skin concerns and what I wanted to achieve. At her suggestion, I opted for the ‘fire and ice’ peel.
It is exactly what you would imagine. The first part burns as the skin is being essentially ‘peeled’ but it only last for a few minutes. The second phase immediately puts out the fire and cools the skin off. Leaving you with a fresh, new layer of skin. When I left my skin appeared completely normal. No redness, no peeling. Just uber soft. As the week went on, I noticed my pores were smaller and my skin remained silky smooth! It was the perfect way to refresh and revitalize my skin after a month of craziness.
