The benefits of an at home chemical peel

02.02.2022



Chemical peels have been around for years although these days you don’t always need to head into the salon or clinic,you're able to do them from the comfort of your own bathroom! 


Here at The Clinic Online we have a curated selection of at home peels, with something for everyone including every skin type & concern, even the most sensitive of skins. Whether you are wanting to get rid of some pesky acne scaring, rehydrate your dull appearance or simply want to achieve a smooth glowing post peel glow, read on to discover just what the benefits are of using an at home chemical peel. 



What do at home chemical peels target?


Chemical peels are designed to treat the Epidermis, or the outer layer of the skin. A peel treatment works by removing dead skin cells, debris and pigmentation, while also decongesting the skin and increasing cellular turnover to reveal brighter, healthier looking skin. At home chemical peels are less intense than in clinic peels and the ingredients are not quite as strong, although you are still able to visibly transform your skin to provide noticeable results you will not see from regular skincare products. 





At home peels are great at targeting:


 -Skin pigmentation & uneven skin tone

 -Acne & breakouts

 -Clogged pored

 -Fine lines & wrinkles

 -Dull/dry/dehydrated skin


At home peels are also perfect to use before a big/ special event as they will leave you with glowing radiant skin (and there is no downtime!) 




Key ingredients to look out for:


When choosing an at home chemical peel, you should look out for one that contains any of the following ingredients- as this will ensure the peel does what it is meant to do: 


-Salicylic Acid (BHAs): effective at treating and preventing all forms of acne including blackheads, whiteheads and inflammatory acne, due to its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and drying properties. 


-Glycolic/Lactic Acid (AHAs): Effectively and gently exfoliate the skin. Lactic Acid also increases ceramides which aid in skin hydration and promotes and increases collagen production. 


-Retinol: Retinol is a derivative of Vitamin A that effectively treats multiple skin concerns including acne, hyperpigmentation and sun damage, also helping to decrease signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles.


-Enzymes: a more natural option that is great for sensitive skin types that can’t tolerate stronger acids.


-Mandelic Acid: improves uneven skin tone and texture as well as fights against ageing.
