The Best At-Home Chemical Peels For Your Skin Type

Chemical peels may have a bad rap due to urban myths about lizard-like skin shedding, but when it comes to true, deep, glowifying exfoliation, a gentle peel can be just the ticket. The best part? You don't have to hit the derm to reap the benefits of a chemical peel. In fact, at-home versions can impart similar results with less downtime than an in-office treatment, especially if you have sensitive skin.
To get you peelin' groovy (zing!), we rounded up the best at-home peel kits out there, with a range of prices and skin types. Scroll through to find your perfect pick and have no fear — these foolproof peels will be your skin's secret weapon.
