11 Best At-Home Chemical Peels for Glowing Skin

Looking for a quality chemical peel kit? here are the best at-home chemical peel kits that will smooth your skin!

Chemical peels have become all the rage in the skin-care world; what was once only available at top beauty salons has now transformed into a compact and affordable kit that you can use right at home. If you want to rejuvenate your skin, get rid of pigmentation and acne, and even fine lines – an at-home chemical peel can be the perfect solution for you. To get the best results, here are the most recommended at-home chemical peels that you should consider.

Before you start

Chemical peels contain acids that cause a mild skin burn; as the skin heals, it begins to shed and reveal a new layer of skin cells. You need to be extremely careful when using an at-home skin peel. First, make sure you purchase a kit that suits your skin (oily skin, dry skin, combination skin). If you have sensitive skin, you should avoid peels.

Also, before you use the kit, you should carefully read the instruction and follow them to a T. A sensitivity spot check is also recommended. Before you apply the peeling solution all over your skin, use it on one spot on your face. If there is no adverse reaction, you can use the peel on your skin.

And – last but not least, use a kit with a low concentration of glycolic acid. This potent acid can cause severe scars and burns. A deep chemical peel should only be performed by professionals, so be advised and do not use peels that contain a high concentration of acids.
