The best at-home peels for clear, glowing skin
Peels have come a long way since the days when you had to go to a salon and then disappear for a week until you were presentable. Now at-home peels ranging from gentle to high-strength are one of the quickest and easiest ways to rejuvenate the skin. They remove the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a more radiant-looking complexion, help stimulate collagen growth and even out skin tone. They can also work to fade dark spots, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation (hello Beyonce's 'Melanated Monas').
Most at-home peels contain a lower percentage of exfoliating acids than you'd find in a salon. AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid) exfoliate the surface layers and BHAs (beta hydroxy acids such as salicylic acid) penetrate deeply into pores. They are effective if you want to achieve a brighter complexion, but they also increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun - so wearing a daily broad spectrum SPF is imperative.
We've tested the best at-home peels for every skin type which can be used daily, weekly or over the course of a month.
