While it may seem that winter is never going to end, warmer weather is on the way. And once those temperatures start topping out in the 80’s, you’ll be dragging out the sandals, short sleeves, and bathing suits. But here’s the dilemma. If you are like us, you’ve probably been a little lax in taking care of the skin that was covered up during the winter months. What’s a girl to do?
Don’t worry - we’ve got solutions that will have your skin whipped back into shape in no time flat!
1. Backs of Arms
This area is most commonly affected by keratosis pilaris AKA “chicken skin.” The bumps are harmless, but annoying and unsightly. Luckily, this skin condition is easily treatable! Our favorite treatment is a combination of NuPeel Natural Enzyme Peel and Body Restoration Creme. Start by applying a thin layer of NuPeel on the affected area and let it sit for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Then, rub in a circular motion until you notice a beading action. Once it stops beading, wipe clean and apply a thin layer of Body Restoration Creme. The lactic acid in the cream will unclog the pores while the lanolin will heal the redness.
Pro Tip: You can also ask your local esthetician for a Jessner’s Peel on the backs of your arms to further speed the healing process!
Your feet have been covered up in wool socks, tall boots, and fuzzy slippers all winter so now it’s time for a little TLC. To get your piggies in optimal sandal condition, you’ll need to visit your local esthetician and ask for a Jessner’s Peel...on your feet! We know it sounds odd, but trust us, it works! The process is the same as a peel on your face - it just takes a little longer to start peeling. But once it starts, wow! The results are amazing!
3. Elbows, knees, and knuckles
At the onset of warm weather, most of us are still pretty pasty from hiding out indoors in front of the cozy fireplace. We dread the thought of being a lovely shade of blinding white when we show up at the neighborhood pool. A nice spray tan is a way to combat the winter pasties! The problem is - our elbows, knees, and knuckles are rough and dry allowing too much color to stain these areas making us look just as bad. This is nothing a little NuPeel Natural Enzyme Peel can’t solve! Simply follow the directions on the bottle and boom! You'll have smoother skin that won’t hold too much color.
Pro Tip: You can use NuPeel Natural Enzyme Peel all over your body for an even tan that won’t fade as fast!
Main takeaway? If you are trying to get your skin in shape for summer, NuPeel Natural Enzyme Peel is a MUST!
