The Perfect Peel: 3 At-Home Face Peels We Love
One of our favorite ways to get a more radiant complexion is by using an at-home face peel. Not to be confused with a chemical peel, packaged gentle peels that you can incorporate into your own skin care routines are a great addition to the serums, exfoliators, and face masks you may already be using. Think of the three at-home peels below as overnight exfoliators that help you get one step closer to glowing skin!
Kiehl’s Over-Night Biological Peel
Formulated with hydrating sodium hyaluronate and enzyme activators of urea and HEPES, this potent, overnight peel helps to facilitate the skin’s natural exfoliation process. Continued use helps to reduce the look of large pores, improve the appearance of sun damage, and reveal a softer, more even-looking, radiant complexion. Use after cleansing three times per week.
Garnier Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Overnight Peel
Another gentle, yet effective option for an at-home peel, can be found at the drugstore thanks to Garnier. Formulated with glycolic acid and vitamin C, the leave-on peel evens the appearance of skin tone, reducing the look of visible dark spots while you rest. Skin looks more radiant upon waking, helping to give a whole new meaning to beauty sleep.
L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads
With a 10 percent glycolic complex, these dermatologist-inspired peel pads gently resurface dull-looking skin and rough texture to reveal a fresh, radiant complexion. The product, which contains 30 pre-soaked pads, is easy to use—after cleansing and before moisturizing each night—and helps to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles! Win, win if you ask us!
Editor’s Note: Anytime you use an at-home peel at night you have to be careful not to skip the sunscreen in the morning. Wear a broad-spectrum SPF of 30 of more to help protect your skin from UV rays. Newly revealed skin following the exfoliation that occurs during a peel is especially sensitive to sunlight. If daily SPF use isn’t already a habit, it’s time to make it one.
