One of the most effective ways to press the reset button on your complexion is via a chemical peel—a treatment that uses a chemical solution to inflict micro-damage on the skin, and thus promotes collagen production to allow the regeneration of skin tissue. However, chemical peels require at least a week of downtime while your skin undergoes the crucial peeling process—making it difficult to squeeze the treatment into a packed schedule. The solution: a gentle, at-home chemical peel formula that makes the resurfacing treatment easier than ever.
The Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Peel Extra Strength Daily Peel (US $88; AED/SAR 323) is a chemical peel that comes in pre-soaked pads saturated with 4 different acids to reduce the signs of aging, minimize the appearance of pores, and revive radiance by promoting the renewal of skin cells.
Infused with potent levels of Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid, and Hyaluronic Acid, the Peter Thomas Roth 40% Triple Acid Peel (US $88; AED/SAR 323) is the closest alternative to a professional treatment. The easy-to-use, two-step system aims to minimize the appearance of lines, even out skin tone, and plump up features.
Those who have sensitive skin can reach for the Kiehl’s Over-Night Biological Peel (US $46; AED/SAR 169). The oil-free, overnight treatment swaps Glycolic Acid for Urea (a gentler exfoliant) to renew the skin without irritating it.
