Want to know how to get great skin? Ask Dana Ramos – she literally wrote the book! Ramos is the author of The Skin Regime: Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin. The book explores some of the most enduring myths about skin care, as well as crucial common sense skin care information on everything from how to reverse sun damage, to makeup tips, to – most importantly – how to do a chemical peel at home. Amazon Retail: $10.01
I’ve never had a chemical peel anywhere – in the dermatologist’s office, at a salon, or at home. So, when I received the book and a sample of Ramos’ 1-4-All Peel, I was a little bit nervous.
After reading the book and directions thoroughly, I decided to give it a try. Ramos warns that many reactions are possible (and all within normal range) from almost no discernible change, to redness, to flaking and outright peeling. For my first attempt, I opted to try only one “layer” of the peel and was somewhat relieved that my reaction was not significant, although my skin truly did glow afterward.
Ramos suggests at least a week between peels and the 1-4 –All Peel can be used by women with all skin types. It can also “layered” up to four layers – hence the name – for a very strong peel. Several peels are usually necessary in order to see optimal results, so next week I will try again!
A 2 oz. bottle of the 1-4-All Peel is enough for 40 peels (almost a whole year’s worth!). The 1-4-All Peel is also currently on sale for $41.95 (regularly priced $49.95).
The Skin Regime as well as the 1-4-All Peel, and other skin care products by Dana Ramos, such as Certified Emu Oil, Glycolic Serum, Glycolic Body Lotion are sold in fine retailers nationwide.
