    I thought it's worth sharing. Read this article:

    Think twice before using salicylic acid for acne, or glycolic peels for glowing skin, or even Clarisonic (use that at least twice a month).

    Good I forgot for a long time my Neutrogena microdermabrasion device.

    It's better to use an ordinary washcloth for cleansing your face (or at least an ordinary facial brush but once a week not often).

    I came across with this article after searching online "what does glycolic peel mean" because I was thinking of buying that fancy Caudalie Glycolic Peel from Sephora. No way!!!

    P.S. Oils are more useful for skin (e.g., coconut oil) than all those peels.

    there is nothing wrong with AHA's and BHA's as ingredients, they are amazing if they are in well formulated products.

    The article basicly talks about being cautious about how often you have these high concentration treatments done, and about getting them done properly (not ordering them at home and thinking you can go crazy with them). If you are using a high concentration acid on your face, and are doing it repeatedly with very little time between those treatments, then you would have to be naive to think there wouldn't be any adverse affects.

    most of the items on the drug store shelf that have these ingredients have very low concentrations compared to the ones used by estheticians. It doesn't mean you can't over use them, but the frequency of use will still vary from person to person.

    I have had chemical peels done, I continuously use AHA's and BHA's at home that are slighly higher in concentration than what you find in cosmetic lines at the drug store/dept. store. I never have irritation issues unless I apply the products too frequently.

    As with everything, you have to understand what you are using, what you are doing and remember that more is not better

    A recent video by Wayne Goss where he talks about his daily skincare routine. It is pretty intense, and I use a few of the products he shows.

    He starts off by talking about the 3 different concentrations of BHA's that he uses, with one of the products being used twice daily, and the other two higher concentration ones used as needed during the week. I happen to use the one in the blue pump bottle he shows, about twice a week, and with the hotter summer weather where I break out more, I find I need to use it more frequently.

    He uses a lot of chemical exfoliants, and very frequently. It can be done, but you also have to step back a little if you find that the frequency of use is irritating your skin.

    Of course he is not using concentrations that are sold to estheticians, and no one really ever needs to use those products on a frequent basis. It is so much better to use lower concentrations on a more frequent basis, as your skin stays consistently nice.

    In other words, do everything in moderation. Chemical peels are not scary if done right by a trained professional.

    Thanks Anisa for sharing. Everything in moderation and watching your skin's reaction makes a whole lot of sense.

    Fear mongering. If used in moderation it should be fine. Of course if you're an idiot and gonna over do it you can burn yourself etc. Common sense.

    Daily Mail is so sensationalistic with their attention whoring headlines

    Thanks for sharing here. I also read this article lately and realized that how good I doing to my skin as I always prefer natural skincare routines to treat any of the skin issues. Don't follow up with 'any' of the skincare routine told to you. Consult an expert before you move ahead in this.
