The makings of an ageless-looking, smooth complexion like actress Meagan Good‘s depends on one thing – luck and maybe some help from products that decrease the appearance of large pores and aging lines like Exuviance, Goldfaden MD and Peter Thomas Roth.
Once only performed in the confines of a dermatologist’s office, facial peels have a new home in your home because they’re safe to use and don’t require the watchful eye of a dutiful MD.
Alpha Hydroxy Peel
Since recently learning of and feeling first-hand the effects of the Exuviance Performance Peel Ap ($75, ulta.com), I have to wonder what took me so long to start doing my own peels? Exuviance Performance Peel AP 25 is a high-performance peel-and-apply product containing a 25% blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA) including Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Gluconolactone that exfoliates dead, dull surface layers so it improves skin clarity and brightness, refines pore size smooths skin texture and visibly diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This peel can also be used on the backs of hands, neck, chest and body.
Lactic Acid & Enzyme Peel
Goldfaden MD Fresh A Peel Multi-Acid Resurfacing Peel ($85, goldfadenmd.com) is a supercharged Lactic and Multi-Fruit Enzyme pump-and-apply exfoliating peel that removes dead skin cells to reveal fresh, youthful skin. This acid and enzyme special blend activates lightening quick, so keep the cool water nearby. This peel also reduces the appearance of fine lines, pores, and skin imperfections. With continued use skin becomes softer, smoother and looks more radiant and youthful with a brighter and more even skin tone.
Triple Acid Peel
Peter Thomas Roth PROfessional Strength 40 Triple Acid Peel ($88, Sephora & QVC) is a fool-proof complex of TCA, Glycolic, and Salicylic acids that minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smooths rough texture, evens skin tone and diminishes the look of pores and problem skin. Why do at the doctor’s office what you can for yourself? This professional-grade facial peel delivers an advanced treatment with less risk of irritation and even less recovery time.
