You know, sometimes when I’m having a bad skin day rubbing my face with a peel pad slathered in some sort of acid can make it all better. They’re quick, they’re easy to use and are actually quite an effective way to clearer, brighter skin without having to visit a clinic for a peel. And while there seem to be a gazillion and one peel pads on the market, they’re not all created equal – hence why it’s important to tread with caution.
How To Use Peel Pads:
Peel pads are a type of skincare product designed to exfoliate and brighten the skin. Typically, you use them at night after cleansing, before your serums and your moisturiser and you literally just wipe them across your face. Some you wash off, some you don’t and you don’t need to use them every night. Maybe just two-three times a week and eventually you can work your way up.
Whatever your skin type though, there’s no need to use a peel pad, on the same night you use your face scrub AND your facial cleansing brush – it’s way too harsh. Over-exfoliation is the biggest mistake people make with face peel pads so remember, slow and steady. Also: follow up any type of peel pad with a broad spectrum SPF during the day!
