This week we roadtest ... a pomegranate peel WORKING in an office often leaves my skin feeling dehydrated so I have been on the hunt for a product to kickstart a glowing complexion. Saks Advanced Beauty offers a host of peels and facials to help with skin problems. I popped along for a consultation where my face was scrutinised under a UV lamp which reveals the condition of the skin and shows up any damage.

From this the beauty therapist determined which treatment was most appropriate for my skin.

Thankfully, the analysis showed no signs of major damage.

I have slight pigmentation around the mouth and signs of dehydration around the eyes - a common problem - and cheeks.

The therapist recommended a pomegranate peel. Saks offers a range of Today Peels, which can be used without any prior preparation to the skin, and Tomorrow Peels, which need a minimum of 10 days' advance preparation. The pomegranate peel needs no preparation and is great for adding moisture to the skin. The antioxidant peel evens out the top layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and preventing free radical damage to support the life span of healthy cells.

The peel was applied to a muslin gauze, which was then spread over my face in circular motions to generate heat.

The process took less than five minutes. I was then advised that I could go home with the peel still on my skin and then wash my face the following morning. The longer you leave the peel on your face, the more beneficial the treatment is.

The next day my skin was feeling super soft. The peel had helped to remove dead skin cells and even out my skin tone.

I felt radiant and my dry skin patches had cleared up. A few weeks on and my skin is still showing an improvement.

A great result for just five minutes of my time!
