I love exfoliating. Consistently sweeping away all those dead skin cells that accumulate every twenty-eight to thirty-two days on my skin is one of my favorite activities, makes my skin soft and luminous, and helps my more moisturizer melt into my skin. Glycolic Acid removes dead skin cells, address acne, and brightens the skin. All these amazing results come from an ingredient derived from sugar.

Brazilian Peel by Advanced Home Actives is a concentrated 30% glycolic peel with Acai that  you can use at home and will change your life. It was created by plastic surgeon Dr. John Gross to give you professional results at home. The glycolic acid sweeps away debris from the surface of the skin and Acai is from the Brazilian Rainforests and infuses the skin with antioxidants to ward off all that environmental damage that is being corrected. IF you have ever had the opportunity to have a facial at a spa you either walk out feeling as if your face has been magical healed by skincare fairies or you feel as if some one attacked you and left you more red and uncomfortable than you had had expected. Brazilian Peel gives you all the benefits of a facial without discomfort and at a reasonable price for a prestige skincare treatment product.

After using this product you will take a few moments each day to wonder how you and your skincare were able to live without it.  Glycolic Acid is an alpha-hydroxy acid. It works wonders on the surface of the skin to help improve texture and brighten the complexion. It also helps with fine lines and wrinkles. Acai is a fruit found in Brazil that is packed with antioxidants. This complex works together to revitalize and repair your skin.  Each box of Brazilian Peel comes with four syringes and a full size serum. The Advanced Renewal serum is used after the peel. Don’t worry there are no real needles.

The peel comes in plastic syringes and you squeeze it out. You will see a clear gel with the active complex and a white creamy neutralizing complex. I mix the two substances in my palm then apply to my freshly washed face. You will feel some warmth and mild tingling as you rub it onto your face. This sensation usually subsides after a minute. For the next ten minutes you can decide which mask you are going to use afterwards. One of my favorite home spa tricks is to do this peel then follow with a detoxifying or hydrating mask afterwards. Your masks will work twice as well after a Brazilian Peel because after such an intense exfoliation our mask will be able to work deeper. Because the weather has started to get colder I followed my peel with the Black Tea face mask from Fresh.  I challenge you to try doing a mask alone after only cleansing and then try it after doing this peel. I am sure you will see and feel a significant difference in your skin.

The Advanced Renewal serum should be used after the peel and daily. It is calming and hydrating serum that can also be used daily under your moisturizer.

I love this product because no matter what issue I may be having with my skin this product immediately gets my skin back on track. If I notice dullness, whiteheads or blackheads, flaky skin in the cold winters of New York City, or my moisturizer doesn’t seem to feel as good as it usually does I turn to Brazilian Peel to remove all those obstacles. Chemical exfoliation bulldozes the collective dead skin cells, excess oil, and environmental damage that stands between you and perfect skin.

IT is recommended that if you are using the Brazilian Peel to wear a daily SPF of 30 in order to protect your skin. Everytime you exfoliate need more youthful skin will come to the surface faster so wearing sunscreen will ensure you get the most out of your investment.
