Skin allergy: Fruit acid peel reaction relieved

This young woman 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. (Fig. 2.) The mild eczema seen in the picture on the right was present prior to the skin peel facial.

Her mother reported: “My daughter is amazed 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.”

Dr. Chris’ comment:

This case questions the wisdom of skin peeling as a means of improving skin quality. After all, peeling only removes the superficial layers of skin but the root cause of blemishes, pimples etc. remain in the underlying layers waiting to redevelop. This can happen quite quickly, sometimes in 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 off the skin’s natural oil, making it prone to dryness and scaling.

Also, skin is highly sensitive, so keep moisturisers and other cosmetics to a minimum or avoid them completely. Good quality, stable skin can be achieved  simply by applying a little wheatgrass extract daily, or even on alternate days, and persevering.
