Home peels have greatly improved in recent years and while they won’t give the same results as salon peels or lasers, they will definitely give skin a boost. As promised in the post below I have rounded up some of the better ones out there. Boots No 7 Youthful Glycolic Peel Kit (£24.95 www.boots.com) is a professionally inspired glycolic peel that gives fast results, while Philosophy Microdelivery Peel Kit (£49.50 www.johnlewis.com) delivers Vitamin C into the skin during the exfoliation process to brighten and rejuvenate the skin. Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Extra Strength Formula (five treatments for £15 at Cult Beauty) is the only peel on the market that combines five alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids with potent anti-ageing antioxidants. But the easiest to use by far is the DCL Multiaction Penta Peel (£58, michaeljohn.co.uk) — you just take out a peel-soaked pad the size of a cotton pad and wipe it over your face three times a week, leaving it on for five minutes before rinsing. My skin felt incredibly soft after I used it, and looked squeaky clean.
