Even though I love a good, strong salt scrub on my body. I prefer a chemical exfoliant for my face. The Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel ($82) changed my life. Whereas I used to have bulbous breakouts once a month, now it's a tiny whitehead on occasion. This dermatologist-grade product is easy enough for beauty beginners to do at home. It doesn't burn, but it does brighten in a matter of minutes.
