Exfoliating Pads You Can Use Weekly To Help Fight Acne

Bring out your skin's natural glow.

Here's the lowdown: Exfoliatingor sloughing off dead skinis one of the most important skincare habits to help fight acne as it clears your pores. Exfoliating can become too much though if we use harsh facial scrubs daily, so a chemical exfoliation once a week using pads is another way to do it, as long as you ease into it and incorporate it very slowly into your skincare routine.

Exfoliating pads are cotton pads that are pre-soaked with exfoliating alpha and beta hydroxy acids, along with other potent ingredients. Like using a toner, you only need to wipe the soaked pad all over your face, let its formula lift off dead skin, and then rinse it off! 

What makes exfoliating pads different from toners is that they usually have a higher concentration of exfoliating acids. That said, most of these potent wipes must only be used one to two times a week. (If you have sensitive skin, start with once a week, and opt for a lower concentration at the very beginning of your beauty journey.) They're also best applied at night to avoid sun damage! Here are some peel pads worth adding to your beauty routine:

This peeling pad is drenched with 20% exfoliating glycolic acid content to effectively resurface the skin. Simply wipe the pad all over your face and rinse it off after two to three minutes. Aside from fading pimple marks, you'll notice a softer and a more radiant complexion. If 20% is too high, you may also opt for the brand's cult fave, the Pixi Glow Tonic, which has 5% glycolic acid.

Its star ingredient is red wine, which contains antioxidants that help keep the skin firm and plump. Other potent ingredients include exfoliating glycolic acid and lactic acid as well as skin-brightening blackberry and raspberry fruit extract (both of which are rich in vitamin C.)
