Of course carrying out your own skin peels brings with it advantages and disadvantages. They may be practical and easy to perform in the comfort of your own home, but do they actually work?
The Banana Peel
So it may seem that bananas could have magical properties when it comes to getting rid of acne. This offers a natural, chemical-free alternative to the pills, creams and lotions available. It's as simple as cutting up a small piece of banana peel and rubbing the inside of the peel over the acne inflicted area.
Trying to Look Young until Red in the Face?
Sticking to safe and yet ineffective DIY home peels may not cause you any harm if it's mixing banana peels, but what happens when you start with the chemical home peels? It goes without saying that without the right guidance and instructions it's very easy to damage your skin, end up red faced, sore with irritation.
Using the Wrong Peel
Without having a proper consultation with a dermatologist it's difficult to know which strength of peel to use for your skin. Without the correct information you could end up buying a peel much too abrasive for your face.
Without expert advice you might not know what to expect after having your peel, apart from the obvious peeling of the skin. Scarring, discolouration and any possible allergic reactions are all the more difficult to prevent and can be more traumatising when you haven't received the right information for aftercare.
