To renew my skin: two times a month I do my own at home chemical peel. While this might sound very scary to do on your own, trust me it is not hard to do at all on yourself and I’ve already saved myself likely hundreds (maybe even thousands) of dollars by not going to a spa for a peel. I use the Glycolic Acid 30% Gel Peel – Enhanced with Retinol and Green Tea Extract and have to say it is one of the best purchases I have made for my skin.
At-home chemical peels are an interesting option for those of us who have yet to venture into a doctor’s office to experience the real deal. Often called “brightening peels,” these treatments typically contain a much lower dosage of glycolic acid than you’d get from a doctor, but promise to provide the deepest exfoliation possible leaving you with fewer fine lines, reduced hyper-pigmentation and radiant skin.
