Peel and reveal brighter skin with Philosophy, Murad and Lierac!

One of the best things you can do for your skin is a weekly peel - not only do they make your skin look and feel smoother and brighter, everything else you put on your skin after will absorb and work better!

You'll love the results so much you will be tempted to want to peel more often but don't, especially if your skin is at all sensitive - I can tell you from experience that using a weekly peel more often can turn your skin red, flaky and itchy!

Here are two weekly and one daily peel I like:

Philosophy The Micro Exfoliating Triple-Acid Brightening Peel - 12 pads - $88 - features 12 individually-wrapped, pre-saturated chemical peel pads designed for weekly use to deliver advanced skin-brightening and anti-aging benefits. With a formula that contains mandelic, phytic and azelaic acids that dissolve and sweep away dead skin cells to help improve skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and enhance skin clarity as well as skin-brightening technology that visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots and discolouration.

Available at Sephora and select The Bay and Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.

Murad Intensive Resurfacing Peel - 4 x 5ml - $49 - combines the benefits of a peel with gentle microdermabrasion to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. With dried plum extract and vitamin C - to brighten skin for a youthful glow, durian cell reform - to enhance the penetration of active ingredients while loosening the bonds holding debris and dead cells to skin's surface, and bamboo beads - to provide mechanical micro-exfoliation to buff away build up further reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

There are four single use vials in the pack but unless you have a giant James Van Der Beek pumpkin head, you'll only need half the vial for each application which makes this peel a much better buy as it will last you 8 weeks instead of four!

Available at
I understand that you'll love the results so much that you'll want to peel every day so here's one for daily use:

Lierac Paris High Peel Renewing Concentrate Intensive Peel - 30ml - $62 - helps boost cell renewal, improves skin texture and diminishes photo-aging with 10% of new-generation hydroxy-acids - 1% salicylic acid for exfoliation of the upper skin layers and 9% glycolic acid to help stimulate cell renewal as well as 5% urea to reinforce moisturization and tolerance. After the first application skin appears renewed - ideally moisturzed, smooth and soft and over time the appearance of wrinkles are diminished, the skin's texture is refined, the complexion looks evened out, the skin is moisturized and the face glows with youthful radiance.

Available at Rexall or go here to find locations to purchase nearest you.
