The Quest For Healthy Gorgeous Skin – Lactic Acid Peels
**Video Post** Hey Stars! I want to share something with you that I’ve been struggling with. It’s one of my personal goals that I’ve been trying to accomplish since the beginning of the year, but have been failing at horribly 😀 My skin. I’m on a quest to achieve healthy & beautiful skin before the end of 2013.
I have very sensitive, oily & acne prone skin and have spent many years battling adult acne & hyperpigmentation from acne scarring.
You name it and I’ve probably tried it. Proactive, Acne-Free, Murad’s, Dermatologist prescriptions, The Oil Cleansing Method, Oxy, Neutrogena, Olay, Aveeno (which I need to revisit – their colloidal oatmeal face lotion was the Shizznit). And to fight the hyperpigmentation I tried, Palmers, Black Soap, Nadinola, Ambi, Pure Vitamin E.
All of this over the last 15 years and never have I experienced such a drastic & dramatic experience as I’m having with Lactic Acid Peels.
October 2013 (My First Application with Day 1 Results)
Let me give you a little background.
One night a few weeks ago, I hopped on YouTube to do a search on oily and acne prone skin remedies. I was specifically looking for vídeos aimed at darker complexions or African-American skin. I was able to narrow down my search to a group of videos focused on chemical peels & microdermabrasion for darker skin tones.
One Vlogger whose videos I fell in love with was My Invisible Chyrsalis. She had some candid videos showing her TCA peel results and also showed her love of Lactic Acid Peels, which was pretty convincing.
Well, I’m not one of those people who follows things all willy nilly straight from YouTube so I coupled my videos with a lot more research of Medical websites & Dermatology articles talking about Lactic Acid and it’s benefits on facial skin. Then I spent some time researching the dangers of chemical peels & jotted down tips about performing them safely at home.
So with all of that information, I thought about it, talked to my husband & some of my fam about what I was planning on doing, bought my supplies & got to work!

You really can have the skin you’ve always wanted with just a little extra TLC. You don’t have to spend ridiculous amounts of money on expensive creams & dermatologist visits. You can achieve great skin from the comfort of your home. The trick is understanding your specific skin care needs and taking care of yourself by drinking lots of fluids daily (Water, Milk, Juices etc.) Also, I stay away from pre-formulated skin peels with added ingredients like you might find on Amazon or Ebay. I strictly use pure Lactic Acid and Distilled Water. Simple Ingredients and Stellar results.
