Solutions to dull, rough skin

Solutions to dull, rough skin

When facial exfoliants are not giving you the softer, smoother and brighter skin that you want, bring out DIY peels with acids or natural enzymes. Use them once to thrice a week, and always apply on a clean face.

For refined pores

This takes the whole night to do the trict, but it's worth it as even the most conspicious pores on the nose look significantly smaller.

Plus: It aso hydrates, so no need for day moisturiser.

Apply on skin with no skincare before bed and wash it off in the morning.

For clogged skin

2. Murad Instensive Resurfacing Peel, $125

Combining the benefits of a peel and a scrub, it has bamboo deads to buff away dead surface skin, as well as glycolic and salicylic acids to boost cell turn over.

Leave on for five minutes, then rinse off. This can be used up to twice a week.

For lines, pigmentation and pimples

3. La Rairie Cellular 3-minute Peel, $344

This has acids like malic (to soften the look of wrinkles and boost collagen production), lactic (to exfoliate and brighten) and salicylic (to treat and prevent zits).

A fairly strong peel, it should only be used once a week, and left on for just three minutes. Dark spots are less obvious after using it consistently for a month.
