Winter is turning me into a lizard. The combination of wind and ice outside, and the dry heat inside, my face doesn’t stand a chance. I’m molting.
Then to compound a flaky complexion with my ongoing quest to not turn into a wrinkled old prune- I recently found myself in the throes of a beauty crisis.
The silver lining is: I’m in the beauty industry. That means I can get my eager hands on all sorts of amazing products. And believe me-I’m no stranger to subjecting my skin to procedures, peels, and elixirs. So here’s my latest fixation:
The Fire and Ice Facial
Developed by iS Clinical, these two products have been loved by estheticians for years. The iS Clinical Fire and Ice Facial t’s basically a miracle in two jars- this clinical treatment is designed to resurface the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smooth and soften, while encouraging cellular regeneration. So for my purposes, it’s perfect.
Step One: Fire. Yup, it burns… a lot.
• Smoothes and polishes the skin
• Provides controlled exfoliation
• Offers noticeable results
• Restores healthy glow to dull skin
• Deep-cleans pores
Step Two: Ice. When following step one, this actually burns a lot too. Ironic.
• Offers antioxidant-rich treatment for all skin types
• Provides nourishing hydration
• Soothes irritation and post-procedural redness
• Creates a cool and refreshing sensation
This is one of the few peels you can get done that require zero downtime. That means I didn’t trade my lizard-like skin for more lizard-like skin. Once you’re done- you’re glowing.
