5 Peel Pads That Make Exfoliating On the Go So Easy
As skin-care enthusiasts, we love exfoliating — a lot. It’s great for sloughing away built-up dead skin cells on the skin’s surface to reveal an even, brighter-looking complexion. What’s not to love? In the world of exfoliating products you have two categories: chemical and physical. Your typical scrubs fall under the physical category while your products containing ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids, otherwise known as AHAs, are categorized as chemical exfoliants. And when you combine a chemical exfoliator with a tangible, multitasking product, you have one of our personal favorites — exfoliating peel pads.
Exfoliating peel pads are exactly what they sound like: small facial pads (similar to cotton rounds or squares) infused with active ingredients designed to exfoliate. The disposable skin-care product is perfect for when you’re on-the-go or looking for the convenience of a wipe.
Ahead, we rounded up five exfoliating peel pads that will help you wipe your way to brighter looking skin.
L'Oréal Paris’ Bright Reveal Peel Pads are a two-in-one anti-wrinkle and brightening treatment. They help resurface dull, uneven skin tone and rough texture while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles. They get their brightening ability from glycolic acid, a powerful exfoliating ingredient.
Tula Dual-Phase Skin Reviving Treatment Pads provide both chemical and physical exfoliation to help you get bright, soft and smooth skin. The natural cotton plant fibers act as a physical exfoliant, while lactic acid and plant enzymes work to remove surface debris and probiotics can help keep harmful bacteria from irritating the skin.
Naturally Serious uses a blend of all-natural ingredients to treat the look of skin. In these pads, the pomegranate enzymes and oleic, palmitic and linoleic fatty acids exfoliate while colloidal oatmeal and sodium PCA hydrate.
Designed to help cleanse and refine skin, the Max Complexion Correction Pads by Peter Thomas Roth help reduce acne visibility, uneven skin tone and the look of pores. They’re formulated with salicylic acid to address blemishes, glycolic acid to exfoliate and aloe to help soothe skin.
Skyn Iceland Nordic Skin Peel allows you to smooth a pad over cleansed skin three to five times a week to reveal glowing skin. They exfoliate to improve texture, diminish the look of fine lines and brighten, while also wiping away dirt and oil.
