We don't care how they spin it, but if you want smoother, younger-looking skin, you MUST peel. Plain + simple. And peeling is wonderful at any age.
A Chemical peel at your dermatologist is the BEST way to go. But you CAN peel or exfoliate at home, if you are careful and do your beauty homework, because you can burn your complexion badly.
If serious peels make you uneasy, you could try a gentler method that still gives you the effective benefits without all the fuss.
One of these is becoming a cult fave, and it's from Avon:
ANEW CLINICAL Advanced Retexturizing Peel
Avon has made this quick + uncomplicated. It's a jar of 30 round cotton, unscented discs.
TO USE: Glide over face. Let dry (don't wash off). Use AM or PM after cleansing, 2-3 times a week. And let the peeling, exfoliating action do its thing.
Avon explains it like this:
Peels away dullness and visible age damage so healthier looking skin can surface.
Plus....Avon claims that their Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel ($25) is as "superior to a professional 35% glycolic peel at home."
Now those are pretty excellent results.
Even if you did lots of sun damage over the years, a peel routine can restore a smoother, younger-looking complexion in time.
We highly recommend this method of attack.
