Not all skincare products can magically transform your skin from uneven and dull to shiny and smooth in just one night.

But if there is a treatment that comes close, it is a homemade peel.

Unlike moisturizers, serums, or cleansers, a chemical peel exfoliates, or "peels," the upper layers of the skin, generally revealing more even, healthier-looking skin.

For decades, the only way to get a chemical peel was to visit a dermatologist for in-office treatment.

But in recent years, brands have come up with options for use at home.

These are not a substitute for in-office treatment, but they are a great and cheaper way to take care of your skin.

  • The best ways to remove makeup, according to experts

Dr. Corey L. Hartman, founder of Skin Wellness Dermatology in Birmingham, Alabama, says these peels are a wonderful way to take care of your skin.

They are a great way to control acne breakouts, smooth lines and wrinkles, improve pigmentation, and provide an overall glow to dull skin.

How do chemical facial peels work at home?

While most are familiar with physical exfoliation, such as using a washcloth or a certain scrub to shake off dead skin cells, chemical peels use a different mechanism to achieve the same effect.

"Certain ingredients, such as acids or enzymes, break down sugars in the skin, eventually causing the skin to remove them faster than it would on its own," says Dr. Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic research. and clinic in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Chemical peels deliver high concentrations of exfoliating acids to the skin to brighten the complexion, even skin tone, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Despite the name, most peels will not actually have your skin shed on sheets, but you may see some flaking or dryness after use as the product works its magic.

    This is what the experts say

What ingredients should you look for in a chemical facial peel at home?

Hartman says that most homemade peels contain glycolic or salicylic acid, which are two of the hardest-working hydroxy acids on the market.

These acids come in different concentrations and allow gradual titration as tolerated.

How to make the best chemical facial peel at home for your skin type

Not all skin types can tolerate chemical peels at home.

Still, it is possible to find one that works for you, you just need to make sure to test an area like your arm to check for potential unfavorable reactions.

  • How and how often should you wash sheets and duvets, according to experts

"First timers should start low to see how it goes," said Zeichner, who recommends a salicylic acid peel for oily or acne-prone skin.

Although it says that for people with more sensitive skin, you should stick to ingredients like lactic acid, which is gentler due to its larger chemical structure.

Because chemical peels can be harsher on the skin than other categories of products such as serums or masks, it is best to remove any potentially irritating ingredients such as retinol.
