This case is that of a young woman who developed a severe reaction soon after fruit acid peel treatment to her facial skin. Application of wheatgrass extract returned her skin to almost normal after only three days (see Figure 2, below). Note that the mild eczema seen in Figure 2 was present prior to the skin peel facial.
The patient’s mother reported: “My daughter is amazed by how quickly the burn and blisters healed as well as healing her pimples using wheatgrass. She said they completely dry out and form a crust, which simply washes away in the shower. She then uses wheatgrass like a moisturizer. Truly a miracle. Thank you.”
This case questions the wisdom of skin peeling as a means of improving skin quality. After all, peeling only removes superficial layers of skin, but the root causes of blemishes, pimples etc. remain in the underlying layers waiting to redevelop. This redevelopment can happen quite quickly, sometimes within a day or two.
My approach to creating and maintaining good skin quality is to “normalise” it with wheatgrass extract, and persevere. It is also important to avoid soap and too much warm water, as this washes away the skin’s natural oil, making it prone to dryness and scaling.
Because facial skin is highly sensitive. I recommend avoiding moisturisers and other cosmetics as much as possible. Instead, apply a little wheatgrass extract daily, and persevere.
