Mid 50's, usual wrinkles and quite a few brown spots. I'm late to retinol but started with Dermatica and decent sun screen in February and I think there's an improvement. A friend rates peels, is it worth it?
I had a 40% mandelic acid peel earlier this year. It caused a huge acne purge on my chin and jaw that lasted for two months. The peel didn’t hurt at all but I felt quite unwell for a few days afterwards. My skin did feel softer but in a more vulnerable way as this was due to damage. I wouldn’t have another, or would maybe try home peels at a lower acid percentage.
Other people will have a completely different experience of course, but I think peels are something to approach with caution if your body is generally sensitive.
