From mom jeans to platform sneakers, the '90s are back in a big way, and so are peels. Updated for a new generation in elevated, next-level formulations, forget any ideas about chemical peels you might have taken from comedy shows or that infamous SATC scene, and think safe, transformative at-home treatments delivering radical radiance to every skin.
Peels have been a quiet staple in the treatment rooms for years, but now with an utterly innovative, new approach, we've created the first-ever full-service at-home peel kits, suitable for every skin type and tone. Providing every step from prep to post-care, along with all the accessories and guidance to perform your perfect peel, whether an instant glow or resurfaced radiance, the Peels-In-A-Box collection brings all the benefits of spa-grade treatments, home.
“Whether brightening, smoothing, or resurfacing, Glo’s at-home peels are truly transformative. I love to recommend them to my clients when they need a treatment boost between in-office visits, particularly if they’re concerned about their skin texture and tone,” shares Dr. Nina Desai, Board-Certified Dermatologist. “Glo is leading the way with their unique peel kits. No one else is doing this. They use the most efficacious, clean, and safe ingredients to ensure you get the best results from each and every treatment.”
OK, so if you’re peel hesitant, don’t let the name put you off. Peels won’t make you shed your skin like a snake, or burn your face off. “Peels are just an extension of your exfoliation ritual,” explains Dr. Nina. “Exfoliation should be a key part of all skincare. Every skin type and tone can benefit from it. It can be very individualized based on your specific skin’s needs and any issues you want to address,” she adds.
By exfoliating, you’re not only sloughing away dead skin cells, you’re also promoting cell turnover, improving your skin’s overall texture and appearance for boosted brightness and complexion clarity. “Exfoliation has so many benefits. It's a fundamental technique to improve skin’s overall texture and appearance,” shares Dr. Nina. “It also boosts the efficacy of your other products too.”
And, this is where peels come in. They’re the OG of exfoliation. Peels lift away the accumulated layers of dirt, dead skin cells, and other impurities that your daily ritual leaves behind, polishing off anything that could block pores, cause congestion, or give skin that dreaded dull, lackluster appearance.
Active, transformative treatments you can do monthly or every six weeks to supercharge your daily routine, our at-home peels are powered by exfoliating, brightening AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) such as lactic and glycolic acid, along with skin-smoothing retinol, amplified antioxidants such as vitamin C, ferulic acid, and calming niacinamide. Unlike single bottle peels or peel pads which don't tend to be as effective or transformative due to their one-and-done, low level formulations, our complete peel kits offer multi-step active solutions for deeper, more holistic exfoliation with a boost of additional skincare benefits.
Depending on your skin goals and tolerance, the Peels-In-A-Box collection features three at-home peels, available at level 1 and 2 exfoliation, so you can find a treatment that works for your skin goals. All of our at-home peel kits are meticulously crafted to be gentle enough for home use, but deliver major glow-getting results, and have zero to almost no downtime, so you can pop on your peel in the evening, let it do its magic, and be fresh-faced and ready to rock the next day.
Now, if you have sensitive skin, you may be thinking peels aren’t for you. Actually, chemical exfoliation at low levels can be less irritating for sensitive skin than physical scrubs which can be more abrasive and cause redness and stress to reactive skin. Our newest addition to our at-home peels collection, the Hydra-Bright AHA Glow Peel was created with sensitive skin in mind, featuring gentle exfoliation, paired with nourishing, nurturing ingredients to boost your brightness while feeding your skin. For more severe sensitive skin conditions it’s always best to consult your dermatologist for advice.
