6 Effective At-Home Chemical Peels You Can Get on AmazonOctober 16, 2020
If you want deeper resurfacing benefits than an everyday exfoliator can offer but don’t want a treatment as intense as a professional, in-office chemical peel, you need an at-home chemical peel in your arsenal. These products typically contain a high percentage of hydroxy-acids for deep chemical exfoliation and are meant to be used once a week or a few times a month, depending on the formula. In addition to making skin feel smooth, at-home chemical peels can help target acne, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and dullness. To give one a try, look no further than Amazon. The online retailer is home to some of our favorite at-home chemical peels, and we’re sharing them all below.
Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel
This two-step treatment contains a combination of five acids. The first-step pads effectively exfoliate, while the second-step pads nourish and balance the skin, prepping it for the next products in your routine.
L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Bright Reveal Anti-Aging Peel Pads
The star ingredient here is glycolic acid. The pads are formulated to target dull, uneven tone and rough texture and promote a more youthful-looking complexion.
Peter Thomas Roth Peptide 21 Amino Acid Exfoliating Peel Pads
Amino acids and a 20% exfoliating complex work together to treat enlarged pores and uneven skin tone and texture. Because chemical exfoliants can make skin more sun-sensitive, always follow up with sunscreen when using during the day (and this goes for any product on this list!).
Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Pads
These exfoliating pads from K-beauty brand Neogen are soaked in a formula that contains a blend of AHAs (including glycolic and lactic acids) and brightening citrus extracts. The pads also feature a lattice woven texture to help better remove surface impurities as you sweep it over your skin.
Perfect Image TCA Salicylic 10% Gel Peel
If you have acne-prone skin, this salicylic acid treatment can help clear skin, reduce inflammation and prevent future breakouts from popping up. Because the treatment is strong, patch-test or consult with a dermatologist before use.
Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Full Strength Exfoliating Mask
Featuring a blend of fruit acids, this weekly mask gives you a spa-grade exfoliation in ten minutes. Over time, the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots are reduced.
