Buying Chemical Peels from Amazon

We all love Amazon. And Amazon Prime - free two day shipping! what's not to love? I don't care what skin care products my clients buy from Amazon. EXCEPT chemical peels! Sometimes I'll have a client who feels that chemical peels are too expensive and they'd rather just buy one and do it themselves at home. In order for a chemical peel to be effective, we have to know if the ingredients are the correct ones for your skin type and we also have to know the pH of the peel we're using.

My Thoughts on Multi Level Marketing of Skin Care Products

There are so many products, especially skin care, being sold by multi-level marketing, MLM, these days. In years past, the term used was "pyramid" marketing. I have issues with this type of marketing. First, the average person selling the products to friends and neighbors isn't making a lot of money. MLM relies on not only selling products, but recruiting others to sell under you so you're getting a portion of the commission they earn on selling products as well. No one gets that Mary Kay pink Cadillac selling lots of lipstick!

What is a chemical peel?

Just the name, chemical peel, sounds scary! But all is comes down to is exfoliation of dead skin cells. There is a chemical peel out there for every skin type, even sensitive skin or clients with rosacea. Some peels aren't even really "chemicals" at all. They can be in an aloe vera base with ingredients like Vitamin C and fruit enzymes. These mild peels leave your skin feeling fresh, smooth and plump. No redness, no irritation and no down time. These chemical peels are great if you have an event coming up and you want your skin to look fresh.
