There are so many commercial chemical peel products available to consumers.
They help to lift off dead skin cells, stimulate new cell growth, lighten skin and counter free radicals because of their anti-oxidant content from vitamin C and other vitamins.
You can also make a chemical peel at home using the fresh derivatives of these active ingredients.
Most peels are made from one or more types of acid – usually derived from a natural source.
The most popular acids used in facial chemical peel products are derived from:
- Milk products (lactic or malic acid)
- Fruit (AHA or citric acid)
- Sugar cane or molasses (glycolic acid)
The strongest acids of these is glycolic. It is a very powerful ingredient in both commercial and natural chemical peel at home application based products.
It is very easy to make your own chemical peel at home using one or more of these ingredients which are in the foods you can buy at your local supermarket.
You can also add to their potency by adding tropical fruits that contain papain – an enzyme that dissolves proteins like dead skin cells. Using a natural chemical peel recipe with the addition of papaya, or cantaloupe can produce an intensely powerful home chemical peel. In fact the recipe I am about to share with you is so potent you will only want to leave it on for ten minutes at a time.
Using this recipe twice a week at the most will leave your skin feeling much brighter, smoother and firmer like a babies bottom as the saying goes!
Here is my ultimate chemical peel at home recipe:
This an adaption of one of the recipes featured in Natural Homemade Facemasks And Skincare Recipes
1 tablespoon mashed papaya or cantaloupe pulp (can also use pineapple or kiwifruit)
1 teaspoon lemon or other citrus juice (lime, lemon, orange or grapefruit)
1 mashed strawberry or 1 tablespoon mashed banana (can also use any other fruit lying around)
1 tablespoon milk, cream or yogurt
1 teaspoon molasses (optional but preferable as its high in glycolic acid)
1 tablespoon or red wine or a crushed aspirin
Mix together well until the mixture forms a puree. Apply this mixture to your facial skin and décolletage taking care to avoid the delicate eye are 1/2 an inch under the eyes.
Leave on your skin for ten minutes then wash off with cleanser or water.
This is an excellent mask to use once a week to keep your skin clear.
