Does anyone know anything about these?
I don't know much about the peels.
Heres a bit more info Alpha-H Skin Care is a range of powerful and innovative skin and beauty products, designed to treat the skin concerns of all ages.
I have used glycolic peels before. I like them and always see great results. It makes my skin smoother and leaves it with a tightening effect. If you are going to try the peel yourself, just be careful what % you start out with.
Donnel 20 is a 20% body/foot lotion but I have used it on my face with great success. It stings at first and then slowly you get used to it but it makes your skin shine and look very young and supple. Also Eucerin Intensive Repair has what I have been told is 7% AHA though they do not specify. It is great for the body but too greasy for the face.Glycolic acid is a form of alphahydroxy acid isn't it? If it is there was a dermatologist on the TV the other night here saying that her recommendations for anti-aging skin care were Vitamins (A, C, E especially A) and alphahydroxy acids. So they sound like a good thing. My sister has a AHA peel regularly and swears by them. Her skin is lovely for 42. So they seem to be working. Interestingly the other thing the derm recommended was to buy a moisturiser with approximately 10% alphahydroxy acid in it. This was to allow the acid to remain on your face. It is not easy to find a moisturiser with this much AHA in it but I did eventually find it in my chemist.

The only time I had a little purging was from a TCA peel. And only one time. I have used quite a few other peels and have never had a problem with break outs.Gymrat (and anyone else), have you had any issues with breakouts after a peel? My skin is certainly improving with these peels - softer, clearer, tighter, and lighter - but it's as if all the congestion within the skin is working its way to the surface. I've been a Retin-A user for over a year and blemishes have nearly become a thing of the past. But the morning after a peel, I'm seeing spots that pretty much stay until they're sloughed off through my general skin care routine through a week or so. Is this to be expected? It's been particularly bad on my chest and decollete area - and this area is the slowest to go (also the less exfoliated compared to my face).
