Do you ever feel like your skincare products have reached their effectiveness limit? Like your skin has adjusted to them, so the benefits seem less and less pronounced? The solution is simple: exfoliate! Now before you think we’re suggesting harsh face scrubs, we’re talking about chemical exfoliation. Chemical exfoliation utilizes primarily alpha and beta-hydroxy acids (think glycolic, salicylic or lactic acid) to gently slough away dead skin cells and clear your pores.
During the winter months, it’s important to exfoliate regularly so that your skin can stay properly hydrated and protected against the elements. We’ve recently turned to peels to take care of chemical exfoliation and keep our skin prepared for our winter skincare routines. Finding the right peel can be difficult, so we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites. Discover your perfect peel today!
Our 5 Favorite Exfoliating Products:
Many skincare peels have been formulated to be gentle enough for consistent usage, and one of our favorite single-use peels is the Murad Rapid Resurfacing Peel. Each towelette contains a potent blend of 10% Glycolic Acid and Vitamin C, which gently resurfaces while also brightening and rejuvenating the skin. With continued use, skin’s texture becomes more smooth and skin tone evens out. It’s important to note that if you’ve never used a peel product like this, we recommend using this product 2-3 times a week until your skin adjusts to the usage of acids.
