My New Obsession! Perfect Image 30% Glycolic Acid Peel Review!

About 2 months ago, I stumbled upon this Perfect Image 30% Glycolic Acid Peel on Amazon & after reading through loads of reviews, I decided I really wanted to give it a shot and after using it several times now, I am completely obsessed!

After my first use with these peel, I immediately called up my mom (who is a bit of a skincare junkie) and convinced her that she absolutely needs to try this!

Now, this really is an amazing product but I’ve got to start off with a little warning. Please for the love of all that is holy, use caution with this product! As far as chemical peels go, this one is quite mild but it is still a chemical peel and needs to treated as such or you could end up damaging your skin. Follow the instructions carefully, do a patch test, wash it off completely and avoid sun exposure for the following day. Also some medications, especially those meant to try skin conditions, can cause nasty side effects when paired with chemical peels so please keep that in mind. Consult with your doctor if you are unsure about any of these things.

Amazingly Simple Way to Treat Keratosis Pilaris!

Hey guys! I inadvertently stumbled across an amazingly quick and simple way to treat Keratosis Pilaris and naturally my first thought was “I MUST share these with my readers!” Obviously this one particular treatment won’t work for everyone but it has absolutely helped me and many others.

Keratosis Pilaris affects roughly 40-50% of the population so I bet many of you already know exactly what I’m talking about but for those who don’t, here’s a very quick run down!

Keratosis Pilaris (sometimes referred to as “chicken skin” due to its bumpy texture) is characterized by rough, red bumps that appear on the skin. It’s most commonly found on arms, thighs and backs but can show up nearly anywhere on the body. It’s caused by the body producing an excess of keratin which builds up around hair follicles and becomes trapped, forming these pesky little bumps. The condition is even more common in children and while it may improve during adulthood, Keratosis Pilaris becomes a lifelong condition for many people.

I’ve had this condition on my upper arms for practically my entire life. I remember being a tiny little Ashley with bumpy arms, kicking and screaming while my older cousins so lovingly tried to hold me down and pop my bumps.

Most peoples bumps are purely cosmetic with no other side effects so many  just choose to ignore the problem and carry on with their business, which is precisely what I’ve been doing my whole life. I accepted my arms bumps as a permanent part of me long, long ago and while having smoother skin was always something that would have been nice, I never dwelled on it much. But if someone told me treating it would be THIS easy, I would have been on it ages ago!
