If the word peel sounds scary and has put you off ever trying them out, then fear not, we’re here to decode the jargon and help you on your way to beautifully smooth, glowing skin. Chemical or natural solutions, they’re designed to remove a top layer of skin in order to banish dead skin cells and promote cell turnover. What type you choose is up to you and dependent on what issue you’re looking for help with, but whether it’s scarring, pigmentation or fine lines and wrinkles, there’s a peel to suit you.
