2. Exfoliating Scrub with Charcoal

Skin glows when it’s clear and smooth, free of any accumulation of dead skin cells. Unfortunately, our natural skin renewal process begins to slow down as we get older, resulting in the buildup of dead skin cells and a dull, grayish complexion. Thankfully, regular exfoliation can help boost the cell turnover process. Give your skin a hand by investing in a facial scrub with charcoal, which helps soak up excessive oil and dirt while delivering natural antioxidants to help eliminate acne-causing bacteria.

3. At-home Chemical Peel

Similar to the peels done by your dermatologist, but with lower concentrations of acid solutions, an at-home chemical peel is an effective exfoliator that penetrates deeply to minimize the appearance of fine lines, refine skin texture, and enhance the clarity of your skin. Use it once a week to reveal radiant, youthful-looking skin.

4. Bio-cellulose Mask

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution not only evens out your skin tone but also provides intensive all-day hydration. Plus, it effectively helps prevent any further development of dark spots, acne scars and marks, and skin discolorations. Another great thing about it?

Snail essence has been an increasingly popular ingredient in Japanese and Korean skincare products, thanks to its highly effective healing properties. Now you can find creams, essences, serums, ampoules, and masks all enriched with snail slime extract to help tighten and firm skin, soothe skin irritation, reduce acne scarring, and intensely hydrate and nourish skin. Add this miracle worker into your daily beauty routine—especially after a chemical peel or exfoliation—and observe how quickly your skin starts to look softer, smoother, and more dewy.
