How to do an at-home facial, according to a skincare pro

The post-lockdown reveal peel

Feel like youve aged a year in the last two months? Our current hermit-like existence offers the perfect opportunity to try a temporary redness-inducing chemical peel. Brilliant for brightening, peels also treat fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation while deeply hydrating and restoring the skins barrier. Facialist Kate Kerr, whos normally based out of the agua Spa at the Sea Containers Hotel, has an intensive Peel in a Box treatment on offer which uses high dose retinol to stimulate skin renewal and collagen production to even skin tone and smooth its texture. Not for the faint of heart, the three-day process forces the skin into an active peeling phase; best approached before a socially distanced weekend indoors. Given the intensity of the products, its suited to those already using a 0.5 per cent or 1.0 per cent retinol every night, and a preliminary telephone consultation with one of the Kate Kerr team is a must.

Kate Kerrs Home Peel Box costs 295 and contains enough for three courses of peel. Shop it here.
