Brazilian Peel Review: At-Home Skin Rejuvenation
by Martina Gonzalez
What is a Brazilian Peel?
A peel is a popular treatment for men and women looking to brighten their skin, refine pores, and diminish fine lines and acne scars. It provides similar results to a microdermabrasion or professional chemical peel, though less dramatic. The active ingredients in peels can vary, from natural-based fruit peels to synthetic peels made from chemical ingredients. The Brazilian Peel is a professional-grade peel developed for at-home use. It contains 30% glycolic acid, a natural acid derived from sugar cane. The glycolic acid works by loosening the uppermost layers of the skin to reveal the brighter, younger-looking skin beneath. It also helps stimulate collagen production, which will aid the skin’s elasticity and firmness. In addition to glycolic acid, the Brazilian Peel also contains acai berry, a naturally occurring super antioxidant from the Amazon Rainforest.
The problem with many peels—- both at-home and in-office— is that the higher their strength, the more they irritate the skin. Irritation is evident when skin is red and inflamed. Although the Brazilian Peel is five times stronger than most over the counter peels, it’s also self-neutralizing, meaning that it will maintain a neutral pH level to avoid irritating the skin.
How Well Does the Brazilian Peel Work?
The Brazilian Peel is packaged into single-application test tubes. After cleansing, apply the peel to your face, neck, and décolletage. Allow the product to sit for ten minutes, then rinse with cool water. It’s important to apply sunscreen after any peel, as fresh layers of skin are particularly susceptible to sunburn. It’s recommended to apply the peel once a week for four weeks in order to see visible results. In a clinical study, 100% of people who tried Brazilian Peel saw a more radiant, youthful complexion. Seventy percent saw brighter, smoother, more toned skin and 28% saw improvement in their fine lines and wrinkles.
Cost and Availability
A set of four applications cost about $78 at Sephora and other specialty beauty stores. If you’re not ready to invest that much yet, you can also purchase a single application for $23.
Beyond the Brazilian Peel
Although the Brazilian Peel is a fine option for smoothing and brightening the skin at home, an in-office microdermabrasion or peel will yield quicker and more drastic results, while also reducing the risk of skin damage and irritation.
