My Top Chemical Exfoliants Recommendations

My Top Chemical Exfoliants Recommendations

While the word "chemical" can sound scary, when it comes to an exfoliant, it's something I very much covet and that can be extremely beneficial, as long as I find what works best for my skin type. As a teenager, I was no stranger to benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, having tried not only a slew of over-the-counter drugstore acne treatments but prescription-grade skincare as well. At the time, I was also going ham on mechanical exfoliants, aka scrubs, which were only aggravating my skin because of how harsh they actually were. I never had much luck, and if I did, I would only see positive results for just a few days or weeks before my acne flared up all over again. Although I still deal with breakouts, the worst is behind me and I now look for products that will help even out texture and speed up skin cell turnover to help with my scarring and hyperpigmentation. I've rounded up some of my top chemical exfoliants I think are worth checking out and that, in my opinion, are fairly priced for what they deliver as well.

DERMA E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum & Instant Radiance Citrus Facial Peel | Review

DERMA E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum & Instant Radiance Citrus Facial Peel Review

Vitamin C is a very hot ingredient in the skincare world at the moment, and I've personally been on the hunt for a skincare line that I could test out to see how my skin would fare using this ingredient in a more concentrated way. I got my hands on the DERMA E Vitamin C Concentrated Serum* and Instant Radiant Citrus Facial Peel* recently, which both sounded very promising. I've been using them for close to two months now, so I figured I would check in and share my results so far. I would like to preface my review with the fact that I have combination skin that is also sensitive and acne-prone. What makes vitamin C so fantastic is that not only is it anti-aging but it is also brightening and has even been shown to be damage repairing by helping fade sun damage and dark spots. It also protects the skin from free radicals thanks to its high antioxidant concentration.
