Peels are the nearest thing in a bottle or jar to getting a skin do-over. Chemical peels made at home are a secret weapon for overcoming a long list of skin problems that are less costly than lasers and more effective than everyday skin care products: irregular texture, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, dullness, acne scars and sun harm.
Here's a quick primer on which ingredients in a DIY peel to look for:
Beta Hydroxyacid (BHA): Unblocks pores and removes lesions from acne. The most popular salicylic acid is that.
Alpha Hydroxyacid (AHA): AHAs such as glycolic acid , lactic acid and mandelic acid exfoliate dead cells of the skin and are good for maintenance. Strength is determined by the percentage and duration of application.
Fruit Enzymes: These gentle enzymes are extracted from papaya, pumpkin, and pineapple and give skin an instant glow.
