Knowing when, and how to add a new product into your routine can feel a little daunting for the average skincare shopper, particularly when it comes to exfoliating acids. You’re not alone if the words “acid peel” have made a permanent association in your brain with that image of Samantha in Sex and the City (horrifying, right?).
But when used correctly, acid exfoliators have the potential to offer up some pretty serious skincare benefits. From improved skin tone and texture to a brighter and clearer looking complexion (isn’t that what we all want?), it really is worth exploring the world of at-home acid peels.
Like anything, if this is your first time trying acids (or any active for the matter), the MO is always, take it slow. This will ensure you don’t overdo it (aka over-exfoliate), and give you the opportunity to check for any possible reactions.
From pre-soaked acid toning pads to overnight treatments, keep reading for our roundup of the at home acid peels we’ve come to rely on.
