My skin/face is looking rather dull and flaky this time of year. I have been considering getting a chemical peel done professionally in the next month or so. If it goes well, I would get a couple weeks prior to my wedding in May.
Has anyone had experience with this type of facial treatment? If so, what type of peel have you had?

If you haven't had this done before and don't have a technician that knows your skin, I might suggest just getting a microdermabrasion, but ask them what kind of machine they use. The old technology is a wand that shoots finite particles on your face and then vacuums it up. The newer tool is a vibrating metal spatula. I like the newer one better.

I started using Obagi Nuderm at home that is also supposed to make me peel and come out with a new complexion. I have used it for over a week and the only thing red are the folds of my neck. I am so afraid I am going to wake up one day with half my face sloughing off and have to go to work. I also travel a lot for work so I don't want people staring at me like a freak in the airport.

Pore size is mostly about genetics, but they can get larger when they are dirty. So a series of cleansing facials (even at home) should help a little, but this isn't something you can chemically alter. Try using a heated clay mask followed by a Neutrogena nose strip once a week.

I thought that certain peels and microderm were supposed to help pore size... is that all a sham?
