Getting a chemical peel might sound like a painful process, but Dr. Dennis Gross has made it so safe and simple that you can do it at home. The brand's Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel ($78) involves a two-step process. First, start with the acid wipe, a pad that holds over 40 different exfoliating ingredients. Then after two minutes, go back over with an antioxidant-rich neutralizer pad. Will it burn? Not exactly, but you'll definitely feel a tingling sensation.
Even though this peel is gentle enough to use every day, it's strong enough for noticeable results. Pimples come to a head. Your complexion seems immediately brighter. Skin care products melt into skin faster, resulting in makeup that goes on more smoothly. One trip for a professional treatment could run you up to $200 or more. But with this DIY option, you can stash all that extra cash in your vacation fund.
