Byrdie: Best for Acne Savor Beauty Yuzu Lemonade Peel

Salicylic acid has long been heralded as one of the best blemish-busting ingredients out there, thanks to its ability to break down pore-clogging oil.4 It’s the star of the show in this peel, making it a must-have skincare item if you’re acne-prone. Along with salicylic acid, this formula also features lactic acid, plus brightening elements such as vitamin C and lycopene. What does that mean? If you have any dark marks as a result of old blemishes, that combo of esteemed ingredients will help fade the appearance of those.

The bright, citrusy scent evokes lemon Italian ice, which is a refreshing touch, and perhaps best of all, it works in only—get this—30 seconds. It’s not cheap, but considering it exfoliates, unclogs, brightens, tones, and promotes cell turnover in less than a minute, we think it’s worth your time and money.

KEY INGREDIENTS

Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that works to exfoliate the skin. Its molecule is slightly larger than glycolic acid, meaning it works a bit slower and doesn't penetrate the skin's outermost layer as easily.
