Who doesn’t like glowing skin? It feels great when your skin is radiant and free of acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
However, constant exposure to chemicals in the makeup, pollutants, harmful UV rays from the sun, and poor hygiene could result in dull skin. It not only makes you appear pale but could also impact your self confidence.
Facial peels come as a savior. They work by removing the dead cells and promoting the much-needed hydration and moisture to the skin. While peels available in stores promise a radiant skin, the possibility of your skin being exposed to chemicals is high.
Thus, making these peels at home from the products available in your kitchen is a good idea. They not only are light on the pocket but also don’t put your skin through a chemical trauma.
Mentioned below are some of the effective facial peels that work wonders.
