Ever since we learned that Beyoncé gives her body the exact same TLC she does her face, we've been looking for new ways to make our full physiques smoother, healthier, and glowier—AKA more Yoncé. Our latest discovery on this mission has been the body peel, which gently sloughs off the first layer of our skin, revealing a newer, more youthful-looking dermis situation. Here, find the five we'll be stocking our medicine cabinets with this fall.
If you already use self tanner, this is the peel for you. While renewing and firming your skin with antioxidants and chemical exfoliants, it provides restrained, streak-free color that you'll see within one to three hours of application. Plus, it contains CapisloTM, which minimizes hair growth and allows you to go even longer without shaving.
