Help: Lactic Acid Peel + Copper Peptide

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have been thinking in getting a lactic acid peel from homepeels, but I have some doubts. What should I use before doing the peel? And after doing the peel? I am also thinking on getting a Copper Peptide, but I don’t know wish to choose, also have doubts if I use it only after the peels or if I can use it everyday. I know I should take some time between the peels, so wish daily routine should I use?

If it helps I can post pics. Anything else ask (Sorry for my bad English)

Thx in advance

I have not had a peel done so I can't speak to that, however if you are looking for a good brand of copper peptide then Skin Biology is one to consider.

Before the peel, you would prep your skin with prep solution - this is included when you buy the lactic peels. After the peel, use copper peptides. Get the basic copper peptide serum (move up to a higher strength like Super CP when you are accustomed to it). Use the copper peptides every night and follow with a moisteriser like emu or jojoba oil. Do the peel once a week - they come with instructions, you need to follow them.

The results will vary from one person to another - they will not give you an overnight improvement - once you have done 4-5 peels (over 1 monh) you will find that your skin tone is much improved, pores smaller, red marks fade... can help with very shallow scars, but not deeper ones.

No, the copper peptides are not essential, but help to smooth out the skin a little more and are soothing after a peel.

You need to wear at least an spf15 sunscreen at all times.

Well... i usually use a 8-6 spf (i am quite white, but i´m accustomed

to the sun), i´ll get a 15 just for the face (lol, or my mama 30+spf)

Anyway, i have read the ENTIRE post on the vinegar and Lemon and i will start it too. Let´s see how it goes, i have been already using the lemon for about 2 months, but for other reasons (losing weight), so i just add the vinegar :-

silver - if you want to losse weight, try drinking 3 times a day:

In hot water, 1 teaspoon of honey with 2 teaspoons of cider vinegar in a hot cup of water - really helps to surpress the appetitie and the vinegar breaks down fat and oil.

thx for the advice Maya, but i am losing weight not because i´m fat but because cardiac problems, i´m 1.76m (69-10 inches) and 68 kg (150 l). i have 3 months to stop smoking.. doctor´s order and since the begining of the year, i have to go to the gym 3 time a week.... what a live :- so i think stick for the lemmon for now

Anyway yesterday i started the vinegar (white) and dilute it in 2 vinegar for 1 water, a little bit hard at the first seconds but no problems beside that. I didn´t but it in the morning (i´m a slacker allways late for work), but i will do it again at night.

That's strange because I ordered some items from them recently and they arrived within a week - got stung with £25.50 of duty and taxes though!

Ye I expect to get stung for around 20 quid. Did it arrive in the day, like FedEx or something (and needing signing for), or did it just come in the morning post?

It arrived at about 9:30 in the morning, it needed to be signed and payed for upon receipt.

I know i´m really anoying... but is it ok to use a moisturizer with the 15 SPF ? (it could save some time for my daily routine) i haven´t noticied until yesterday night (i must have overlooked it) but mine already has a 15 spf.

thx

Idk what would be wrong with that! Actually, i think it's probably better, to protect u from sun damage. i personally use a moisturizer with SPF every day!

Silver - the answer is yes.. as long as you get the SPF element, it doesn't matter where it comes from.

Silver, I'd be interested in the pics. I'd like to see your progress, so I can decide whether or not to try lactic peels. I was hoping I wouldn't have to resort to them. [-o<

To the people who are using vinegar as well as their other creams, lotions and potions - you must consider that the PH balance of your skin will alter and may cause more problems than it is worth.

If you are intending to go out in the sun whilst doing the vinegar treatment ALWAYS use a SPF 30 as the vinegar weakens your skin's ability to fight of UV rays which could result in skin cancers.

Good luck with everything :)
