Chemical peels may be applied to the face, hands, or neck. They are especially helpful in reducing the fine lines that form under the eyes and around the mouth. They can treat wrinkles caused by aging or sun damage. They can also help minimize scars and acne.

Following a chemical peel, the skin will temporarily become more sensitive to the sun. Thus, it is important to wear sunscreen every day until the new skin matures. The sunscreen should be the broad-spectrum version that is above SPF 30.

People with fair skin and light hair are good candidates for a chemical peel. The peels may not work as well on people with darker skin, but the results will depend on the type of skin problem being treated. Be aware that there is a possible risk of having uneven skin tone after the procedure.

Homemade organic peels may be used instead of chemical peels. They are easy to prepare by using fruits, vegetables, gram powder, protein-based dry fruits, water, milk, and other natural ingredients that you can find in your kitchen. A homemade all-natural peel mask works efficiently in exfoliating and removing dead skin cells to give way to new skin cells. The natural mask can transform rough, dry, and flaky skin into even-toned smooth skin.

Be warned that severe wrinkles, skin bulges, and sags may not respond well to chemical peels. They may require other cosmetic procedures, which include laser resurfacing, facelifts, eyelid lifts, or soft tissue filler. These cosmetic procedures could be expensive and are not recommended for people with a limited budget.

A more cost-effective alternative is to use Erase Repair HA which provides remarkable results comparable to expensive cosmetic procedures. Hyaluronic acid, its main ingredient, supports the elasticity and firmness of the skin. Many people consider Erase Repair HA to be their secret fountain of youth.
