During my two weeks in Palma, I made sure to protect my skin with sunscreen and even wore a hat and sunglasses during the hottest hours of the day (when I wasn’t taking my daily siesta!). My skin was glowing and healthy while on vacation. It must have had something to do with the warm, moist air coming off the Mediterranean Sea, because the night that I arrived home my skin did a complete 180 degree turn. I don’t know if it was the stress of traveling, recycled airplane air or the drier environment at home, but my skin began peeling feverishly. Not peeling as in, I just had wonderful cosmetic procedure and just have to get past a few days of pesky peeling before revealing amazing new skin. More like, what the heck happened to my skin, how can I make it stop and will there be any permanent dark marks afterwards. On top of looking like some type of swamp creature, my face actually hurt.
Desparate for any type of relief, I reached into my beauty closet and pulled out two different products. I slathered one on half of my face and the other product on the rest and went to bed. By morning, I was no longer in pain and one side of my face looked dramatically better. On that half, I had applied Homeoplasmine, which longtime Ageist Beauty readers may remember as one of beauty products that I picked up during a trip to Paris. Homeoplasmine is a homeopathic ointment used for healing skin irritations, scratches, scrapes and dry, cracked skin. The product is made of plant extracts, as well as an antiseptic to quickly heal skin irritations. When applying, a little goes a long way, I used less than a dime-sized amount to cover my entire face. Although, Homeoplasmine is an ointment, it is not greasy and tends to have an almost matte finish once applied. After using Homeoplasmine for just one night, my skin stopped flaking off. After a second night my skin looked completely healthy and hydrated.
Another French miracle product does it again! Fortunately for you, lovely readers, Homeplasmine is now easily available in the US via Amazon.com, as well as some upscale pharmacies.
