Want smoother, brighter, firmer skin? Get your DIY day spa on and try introducing a weekly at-home peel to your routine.

Why You Shouldn't Be Afraid of the DIY Skin Peel

If you hear skin peel and just image red, irritated, sore skin we definitely get it. The idea of putting acid on your face on purpose sounds a little strange to even the most daring individuals but at-home peels are perfect for revealing smoother, more radiant skin and it’s a ship you definitely want to board.

Gentler than you’d imagine and whole lot more convenient than visiting the spa once a week, at-home skin peels come in a range of styles to exfoliate (Glycolic Acid), smooth fine lines or even hydrate (Hyaluronic Acid) drier skin.

Although light therapies are extremely popular now for diminishing wrinkles and pigmentation, peels still play a major role in resurfacing the skin.

For smoother, more radiant skin that you can achieve tonight while watching a few episodes on Netflix, an at-home peel is your best friend. Here’s some of our favourites!
