If you’re like me and automatically think of the disastrous situation that Samatha experience post-chemical peel on an episode of “Sex And The City,” the idea of incorporating on an at-home peel as a part of your daily skincare routine may sound pretty darn daunting, to say the least. However, it should be said that peels have come a long way since the ’90s and early aughts. The truth is, daily acid peels are anything but frightening because they’re able to effectively and gently exfoliate the skin and help accelerate cell turnover, which equates to glowing a complexion with less visible fine lines and texture.
Because the daily peels are made for well, everyday use, they’re clearly formulated to be more gentle than their stronger counterparts and are often infused with hydrating and soothing ingredients to offset the potential for irritation and redness. See below for our favorite peel products for a radiant complexion sans the side effects. Check out our favorite non-irritating daily peel pads to try out for yourself.
