A chemical peel, just by the nature of the name itself, sounds terrifying, but it doesn't have to be scary. It's great, actually. Whether you're looking for an instant glow, want to exfoliate dark spots, or really need a complete complexion makeover, chemical peels can do it all. It is important, however, to know exactly what you want from your treatment, how to prep for it, and how to take care of it afterward.
We sat down with Kinara Skin Care Clinic and Spa founder Olga Lorencin-Northrup, whose clientele includes the likes of skin muses Halle Berry, Eva Mendes, and Sofia Vergara. She told us everything — and we mean everything — you need to know about chemical peels. Based on her complexion alone, we'd be mad not listening to her.
