At-Home Resurfacing Peels That Really Work featured image

We love getting intensive skin-renewing peels at our dermatologist’s office or the spa, but when we need to resurface our skin quickly and cost-effectively we turn to at-home options. At-home resurfacing peels have continued to grow in popularity as more and more stellar options hit the market. When stubborn little bumps, uneven texture or bouts of dullness sprout up, one of the best tricks to try is an at-home peel that promotes softer, smoother skin.

Peach & Lily Super Reboot Resurfacing Mask ($45)

This pro-level formula exfoliates, resurfaces and retexturizes skin by “de-gunking” impurities within the pores and dead skin cells on the surface to reveal fresh, healthy skin. It knocks out clogged pores, rough patches and bumps, making skin noticeably smoother.

U Beauty Resurfacing Compound ($228)

One of U Beauty’s many widely adored products, this resurfacing compound is worth the hype. It boosts overall complexion through brightening, resurfacing, tightening and defending skin. Results, including diminished appearance of pores, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles can be seen before a week’s time. We also love the full body Resurfacing Compound for smooth skin head to toe.
