YOLO LIST: GET A CHEMICAL PEEL (AND BE BRAVE TO TELL THE WORLD ABOUT IT)
I've always wanted to do a lot of things to my body ever since I got my first ear piercing. Believe it or not, I used to have five (all on the ears: 3 on the left and 2 on the other)! My mom gave me my first.
This "want" was not the extreme kind to the point of surgery —though at one point, China's leg lengthening procedure sounded sweet to my ears. These thoughts were procured back when the "YOLO" word was not even coined a term!
The things that I wanna do were mentally listed down under my then "Bucket List." It sounded morbid I know but I'd choose bucket than diary any time of the day. And then YOLO was born…
Erase bucket list, here's what's on my YOLO list as subcategorized under "physical":
1. Get a tattoo.
2. Go bald.
3. Get a chemical peel.
Let's start from item #3: Get a chemical peel.
Now I know getting this procedure has its upside in making our skin look young and you might probably think, "Where's the challenge in that?" Think about this: You're gonna be home-ridden for the next 3-4 days. No sun, no events, no gimmick nights… and the list goes on. Plus, did I say that there's pain? Not that I'm scaring you but there is. You know what they say, (altogether now) "No Pain, No Gain." For me, the painful part was missing out on the events that I got invited to during those days when I had the Easy Peel.
But first, what's Easy Peel?
For those looking for a great peeling treatment that does not leave your skin burnt and allows you to go back to your usual tasks fast, Easy Peel is for you. Using a TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) solution and nourishing cream, Easy Peel works to resurface the skin, reduce the appearance of pores and dark marks and lighten skin. Perfect for those suffering from oily skin. Every session starts with a facial and lasts for about an hour. For best results, doctors recommend that a person undergoes the treatment regularly.

To help my skin "heal" faster, the doctor prescribed the assistance of the following products. Since this is a personal case, I think the prescription varies depending on the skin type of a patient.

Will there be an Easy Peel part 2? Definitely yes, as long as my schedule permits it. I'm gonna have the whole procedure done again at the latter part of May.
