Wish you could take an afternoon off from the kids, from work, from dull skin? You could head to OLEHENRIKSEN FACE/BODY SPA in Los Angeles, but if that isn’t doable opt for an at-home kit straight from the pro. The Micro/Mini Peel System offers you a 3-step spa quality treatment that is guaranteed to renew your skin. We put a lot of stress on our skin — our environment, our anxieties and our lifestyle choices can all seriously damage our skin. Since there is no replacement for the skin we are in, it is time to treat the abused organ to a weekly rejuvenation.
The Micro/Mini Peel System has three components that will wow you every step of the way. Start with a freshly washed faced that is lightly moist still, and scoop a teaspoon sized amount of Almond Polish into your palm and blend. Massage the grainy polish onto your face in gentle, upward, circular motions until your face it covered. Sit back and enjoy the almond aroma and feel the botanicals go to work for 1-2 minutes. Wash off with the included natural complexion sponge (the same kind your dermatologist uses) and warm water. You will be left with skin that feel refined and clean. Since this is the abrasive step, you may experience a little redness which fades. The deep cleansing Almond Polish is packed with oat kernal flour, bamboo stem powder, honey, orange peel and almond extract. This step emulates a microdermabrasion that refines and smooths the skin.
Pat your skin dry and get ready for the Lemon Strip step, which emulates the benefits of an acid peel using lactic and glycolic acid, orange and lemon extracts, and aspartic acid. Again, use a small teaspoon amount of the product and blend between your palms before massaging onto the neck and face. This clear gel is my favorite part of the treatment. It gives sensations of cooling and tingling to let you know it is working. The active ingredients are powerful and do not require any additional massaging. They work together to constrict pores, firm and clear the complexion. Leave this layer on for 2-3 minutes and continue onto step 3 — no rinse here.
To complete this luxurious spa treatment, apply a teaspoon amount of Chamomile Comfort over the Lemon Strip. This calming mask has a beautiful scent, so enjoy it over the next 20-30 minutes. This step moisturizes, nourishes and soothes the skin, leaving you with a gorgeous complexion. The powerful ingredients used prior to this step demand the Chamomile Comfort and its neutralizing effects. Chamomile calms with the help of bisbolol, borage seed oil, evening primrose oil. azulene and jojoba seed oil to leave you with a glowing complexion. I leave this on for the full 30 minutes because I really enjoy masks and it has a nice sensation. When the time is up, rinse off the face with the natural complexion sponge and warm water.
Take a close look at your skin and relish in its rejuvenated, refreshed appearance. I am a self-confessed skincare junkie, especially when it comes to spa treatments, both at home and in a professional setting. That said, the OLEHENRIKSEN Micro/Mini Peel System is my absolute favorite kit at the moment. I use it once a week without fail and actually look forward to it. As a woman with sensitive skin, acid peels and abrasive polishes can be impossible for me, but not this one. The natural botanicals do the work without causing damage or major irritation, and that is simply brilliant.
