My Trip To The Dermatologist Turned Skincare Journey

I had a chemical peel consultation this morning.

I woke up overjoyed and ready to feel the burn -- literally. It's been about three years or so since I last went in for a chemical peel and believe me when I say, I am long overdue. While meeting with the dermatologist he asked me what my intentions were for the chemical peel and why I personally wanted one. I mean, who wouldn't want a flawless and even complexion? I'll wait.

As we continued our conversation, he went on to say that he didn't think now was the best time for a chemical peel because I was currently breaking out. I was screaming on the inside, but remained as calm as possible on the outside.


I've been speaking of giving makeup a break for some time now and doing this whole 'less is more' movement, but the whole point was to start off with a fresh layer of skin -- aka a chemical peel. The dermatologist decided it would be best if I start using a few face products that treat hormonal acne and see where we get afterwards. If you know me than you know that I'm all about my natural skincare routine. Point blank, period.
