The Best Anti-Ageing Chemical Exfoliators

Beauty exfoliators

Exfoliating your skin regularly is essential to ensure dead skin is rid of and pores are unclogged. Carrying out this task regularly, will help you to reveal that healthy glow we all strive for. However, scrubbing can sometimes cause damage to your skin. We can be too rough on our skin, and skin care is all about caring for the skin and not adding unnecessary stress to it. Instead of using abrasive scrubs that include small particles which can scratch and irritate the skin, were huge fans for chemical exfoliators which are ideal for those with sensitive and acne-prone skin. While the sound of chemical anything on our skin is not exactly pleasing, these chemical exfoliators include glycolic acid that helps to reduce signs of ageing, hydrate the skin and make the skin look more glowy. As much as acid and chemicals sound like they would harm your skin, trust us they wont, in fact they are easier on your skin than the abrasive process of scrubbing exfoliator on to our skin.

Scroll below for a number of our favourite chemical exfoliators!

1. Amanda Lacey Miracle Tonic

If you have oily skin or are prone to spots, this miracle tonic is for you! Its packed with a number of ingredients, some of which include Camphor oils and mint which help to reduce irritation and redness. The added ingredient of Salicylic acid helps to un-clog pored and also reduce their size.

2. Neostrata Glycolic Peel

This peel by Neostrata is packed full of AHAs that are proven to have anti-ageing benefits! Its gentle on the skin and can help with other skin issues like acne scarring. It can also help to smooth the skin making it appear more even and brightening it. And, as with all chemical peels, it un-clogs pores and opens them up. This product should only be used on a weekly basis, as its concentrated enough to be used once a week. Also, be sure to use SPF everyday (a separate one, not just a moisturiser with added SPF), in conjunction with the Neostrata Glycolic Peel, to really see results.

3. REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

REN Glycolactic mask is an exfoliation formula that helps to reduce fine lines, making your skin look more glowy and youthful. It also noticeably improves the skins firmness.
