Light chemical peels remove upper layers of damaged and dead skin in a non-invasive way while encouraging the regeneration of the skin. Some of the most efficient light chemical peels include the Regenerative Growth Serum, the Green Herb Skin Peel and the Fortnightly Fruit Peel which can be found at The formulation of the above mentioned three most prominent acids changes with the skin care needs of each individual.
