At Home Chemical Peel Options

fruit acid at home peels

You can mix-up some great natural at home chemical peels from things found in your refrigerator..............

Natural chemical compounds can be found in a variety of ingredients like fruits, milk, aspirin, even simple table sugar.

You can use them as a peel off face mask or as a facial wash/scrub to exfoliate.


Alpha/Beta Daily Face Peel

There are basically two types of hydroxy acids:

  • Alpha
  • Beta

Alpha hydroxy acids are naturally found in fruit and milk. These acids are more suitable for dry complexion and can help reduce dead cells which can cause a dull complexion or clogged pores.

Regular use can help keep your skin smooth, glowing and clean. You can make peel using natural ingredients at home.


sugar olive oil mask

This one is so simple:

  • Add a few tablespoons of sugar into a bowl
  • Pour olive oil and mix well
  • Apply to face and let sit for a few minutes
  • Make sure to scrub well - before rinsing

While not as strong as ones you purchase over-the-counter............. they make a nice addition to any beauty routine and can be used in between professional treatments or facials.

Beta Hydroxy Mask/Peel

Beta hydroxy acid is another name for salicylic acid. This type is best for oily complexion because it's oily soluble - which means it can really penetrate and unclog pores.

It can also help reduce dead cells - reducing the appearance of fine lines and discoloration.

You can make a mild version of a beta face peel by simply crushing two aspirins and mixing it with water........

Then apply over your face, leave on for a few minute,s and rinse well. Follow-up with a moisturizer.

Your At Home Face Peel Regimen

Which one should you use and how often?

You can use both - alternating weekly for best results.

If you're prone to breakouts, clogged pores, or excess oil - the beta hydroxy can be used a few times a week.........

But if your complexion is sensitive try it out first in a small area. Salicylic acid can be a bit drying if used too often.

The alpha hydroxy peel can be used a few times a week. And, the older you are, the more often you could benefit from a good at home chemical peel.

Need a More Potent Chemical Peel?

It's a good idea to supplement these home recipes with a professional grade peel. We like:

ZenMed 30% Professional Micro Peel

Long term use also helps get rid of discoloration, light scars, and fine lines........It really provides a nice luminous complexion.
