Did we mention it’s cold out? Not only do we have to put up with the wind that wrecks your hair as soon as you step outside and rain that makes your makeup run just before an important meeting, but we also have to deal with dry skin thanks to the low humidity. Get it together, Melbourne.
Okay, so while we can’t solve the wind and rain problem, we can help with the dryness. A chemical peel is a great way to clear your skin and get a radiant glow, even when the sun refuses to shine.
How a Chemical Peel Works
If you’ve never had a chemical peel before, you may not know what to expect or even how they work. Luckily, we’re experts in the matter and can tell you exactly how these peels will help you achieve flawless, radiant skin.
The first thing you need to know is that a chemical peel is essentially a superhero exfoliator. Designed to slough away those dry and dead skin cells that you curse during your morning beauty routine, chemical peels work to reveal clean, fresh, and newly hydrated layers of skin.
Perfect for your face, hands, and neck – which often become rough and dry thanks to Melbourne’s harsh winter wind – a chemical peel can regenerate and resurface your skin. What exactly does that mean you ask? A smooth, youthful, and glowing complexion that’ll make your friends, coworkers, and even fellow commuters jealous.
Although they do the work of an exfoliator, chemical peels are far different to most of your standard at-home products. As well as being significantly more effective, salon peels can also achieve excellent results without any skin-irritating scrubbing. Instead, these top treatments use active ingredients to remove dead skin cells, stimulate new cell growth, and boost collagen production.
Why Winter is a Good Time for a Chemical Peel
If you’re considering getting a chemical peel, there’s no better time than right now. Winter is the perfect season for some beauty maintenance, and it’s likely that your skin could use a boost during these chilly months.
Don’t let that Melbourne rain fool you; during winter, there’s less moisture in the air, which leads to dry, flaky skin. The low temperatures and harsh winds certainly don’t help either. So, if you’re sick of your usually supple skin feeling rough and rugged, a little TLC by way of a salon peel is the perfect solution.
As well as being a reason to get a chemical peel, winter conditions also make it the perfect time to receive one. Thanks to its cloudy days, the season features lower UV levels, which creates an ideal environment for your skin to heal.
Facial Peels to Try This Winter
If a facial seems appealing, here are a selection of treatments that we offer at MySkin Laser Clinics. These superhero treatments will save your skin this season with their powerful and nourishing ingredients.
Cosmedix Pomegranate Treatment
You don’t need to be a beauty expert to understand the incredible skin-benefits from the Cosmedix Pomegranate Treatment. This powerful peel infuses the skin with nourishing antioxidants while helping to stimulate collagen and smooth roughness. While the results are impressive, the treatment itself is remarkably gentle, using a combination of L-Lactic Acid, Resveratrol, Pomegranate Seed Oil, and Astaxanthin to revive tired and damaged skin.
The Aspect Dr Complete Pigment Peel
The Aspect Dr Complete Pigment Peel is the treatment if you need powerful skin renewal. Ideal for clearing and clarifying troublesome skin, this action-packed peel contains clinical-strength alpha and beta hydroxyl acids. It’s thanks to these acids that the Complete Pigment Peel can easily lift away the accumulated layers of dull, discoloured cells.

So, whether you want to smooth uneven texture, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or even aid in acne relief, this treatment can do it all.
