Men’s Skin Care: Vitality
Skin care isn’t just for women anymore. In fact, a lot of
our readers have a growing interest about men’s grooming and especially, skin
care. Our staff at SingleDad recently had the privilege to sample some of the
latest skin care for men and learn how to keep our skin in the best possible
shape using, Vitality Institute products.
Vitality Institute has one of the most popular face peel
products called the VI Peel. The VI peel is a safe and effective way to help
reverse the signs of aging, remove acne scars, and repair sun damage "age
spots" also known as hyper-pigmentation. I was happy to give this treatment a
try because I was starting to notice that the skin on my face was beginning to
look a little spotty from age spots.
A Face Peel for Men: The Steps of the VI Peel
As I write this blog about my experience, I want to any Dad
who is interested in doing this to take the following steps beforehand:
Expect to stay out of direct sun for at least 5
Days after treatment
Your face will peel the first 3 days after
application, so delay any social events.
- Make sure to follow the instructions
You can only get the VI Peel from a licensed,
With those reminders set, let me tell you about my
experience getting a face peel for the first time.
Step 1: The Application
I had set my appointment with Staci Christie, a licensed, Medical
Aesthetician. Staci was very informative, beautiful and walked me through the
steps of the VI Peel. Her sense of humor was perfect for me because I was a bit
overwhelmed on the process I was about to embark. One of the key take away’s I
learned from the beginning was to make sure I kept my face out of the direct
sun light after my application. I was also told that I might experience a
slight tingle on the initial application.
I was seated in a comfortable recliner and had Staci apply
the serum on my face. Like she had warned, there was a light tingle on the
initial application and the whole appointment took less than an hour. After the
appointment, my face had looked a little blushed as if I had been out in the
sun. My overall experience was positive and now the hardest part of the process
was ahead of me: waiting for my skin to peel.
Step 2: The wait, the peeling
As I stated before, my appointment was on a Thursday so I
had anticipated the peeling to happen over the weekend. Staci had told me that
it takes at least 24-hours before the peeling begins. I went to work on Friday
and caught no attention from anyone at work. To my eyes; it just looked like I
had been out in the sun all day. It wasn’t until Friday night that the fun
My two daughters, (11, 14) were aware of my face peel and
were eagerly awaiting to see my face shed some skin. I am sorry to say that the
hype was bigger than the reality because there wasn’t much to show for it. The skin on my neck began to show the
first signs of flake in the early evening. One of the things that Staci had
pointed out was NOT to peel the skin, but to allow the skin to flake off. When
you have the VI Face Peel, you are given a spate ointment called, "post peel"
cream to help the skin to process through the treatment. In addition, you are
given a tube of SPF 50 cream to keep on your face at all times. Make sure you use BOTH.
By Saturday, (Day 3) my forehead and parts of my face were
beginning to flake and at the end of the weekend, (Day 4) most of my heavy
flakes of skin had fallen off and my two packets of post peel lotion and SPF
were just about used up. There was a little discomfort during the weekend
peeling process because I wanted to scratch and peel my face, but I was
reminded NOT to do this. Overall, my skin looked and felt "fresh" on Monday and
I stopped by to see Staci Christie as a follow up.
Summary: It Works!
Over the years, I have experienced facials and microderm
abrasions for my skin care, however, I was pleasantly surprised by my results
having the VI Face Peel. I was given several compliments from co-workers asking
what I had done, but nobody could pinpoint my "new look". I looked younger, I
had no dark spots on my forehead; my skin looked tone and clean. This to me,
this is a "WIN" because there is nothing better for a man than to have
something like this to happen with such subtle improvement.
If you are a man looking for a subtle, but noticeable
improvement to your facial skin, I strongly recommend getting a face peel. Just
remember to give yourself adequate time away from the sun and social
engagements while your face peels.
