Dead skin bothering you? DIY face peel to get you glowing

As formulas have improved and become safer over the years, they've surged in popularity and become a key component (alongside serum layering and multi-masking) of an at-home facial. She adds that clinical treatments are always stronger (or should be, for safety reasons), but that peels can be used at home inmilder forms. AHAs, otherwise known as Alpha Hydroxy Acids, are a good solution for rough, dry or ageing skin that's gotten a bit line-marked and wrinkly. BHAs (Beta Hydroxy Acids) are great for those with spot prone skin as they help control oiliness and to minimise the appearance of enlarged or clogged pores, blackheads, blemishes and often, acne. One of the most popular BHAs is Salicylic Acid, which you'll find in a number of cleansers and topical spot treatments. 'Superficial peels used regularly (anywhere from weekly to monthly, depending on their intensity and formulation) deliver the instant radiance today's beauty consumer is looking for.' 'There are many benefits to using an at-home facial peel' says Sarah Chapman, 'from eliminating dead skin cells in a controlled manner, reducing surface dryness, lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation – to helping decongest skin from blocked pores and breakouts.' 'If you are new to using peels and acids, introduce them into your skincare routine gradually to keep skin fresh, but without causing irritation.' Wearing a broad- spectrum SPF every day to protect your skin is vital, no matter the weather and if you’re indoors or outside and this is especially important when having face peels.'
