On the net, I found some home-made glycolic peel recipes, which are as good as the chemical ones and are much safer.
Fruits such as pineapple and papaya work well in at-home preparations, due to their natural enzymes and high sugar content. Strawberry and lemon juices, naturally highly acidic, are favorite add-ons to at-home peels. The most important ingredient is the cane sugar. Caster sugar (finely milled sugar) will produce results closest to those at the dermatologist’s. A superfine grind, caster sugar will dissolve better than regular cane sugar, penetrating skin cells more easily.
At home, you can experiment with mixtures of these ingredients, or try a recipe from one of the sites listed below. Add 2 tsp. of caster sugar to any recipe for enhanced glycolic action.
Natural Skincare Recipes for Facial Peels
(These recipes have been taken from a website whose name I don’t remember).
Skin Firming Peel
• 1 packet unflavored gelatin
• Juice of 1 lemon and 1 orange
• Heat together gently to dissolve the gelatin then let cool slightly
The gelatin has a softening effect on the skin and as it dries will help firm and tone while the lemon and orange juice will exfoliate, stimulate and diminish hyperpigmentation.
Gentle Fruit Peel
• 1 cup fresh pineapple
• 1/2 cup fresh papaya
• 1 tablespoon honey
• Puree fruit together then add the honey and mix into a smooth paste
Pineapple and papaya contain natural enzymes and alpha-hydroxy acids that remove dead skin cells while the honey moisturizes the skin.
• 1/4 cucumber, peeled and seeded
• 1 egg white
• 1 teaspoon lemon juice
• Puree ingredients together until mixed well
The cucumber diminishes hyperpigmentation, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles, the egg white firms and tightens, and the lemon juice exfoliates.
PH Restorative Peel
• 1 tomato, pulp only
• package unflavored gelatin
• 1 tablespoon orange juice
• Gently heat ingredients to dissolve gelatin, then puree until smooth
The tomato helps to restore the natural PH of the skin and is an excellent natural remedy for the treatment of blemishes. The gelatin helps to firm and
tone the skin while the orange juice exfoliates.
Skin Revitalizing Peel
• 1 egg yolk
• 1 tsp honey
• 1/8 cup fresh citrus (lemon, orange or lime) juice
• 1 packet plain gelatin
• Mix together thoroughly
The egg yolk moisturizes and firms, the honey moisturizes and the citrus juice exfoliates the dead skin cells away, stimulating new cell production.
Hydrating and Moisturizing Peel
• 1/4 mashed avocado
• 1 teaspoon honey
• 1 egg white- beat until stiff
• Mix into a smooth paste
The egg white firms while the avocado reduces hyperpigmentation, moisturizes, and its’ healing properties diminish scars.

Hey Jomol .. lovely article .. have u tried any of these????
No Shalini…I haven’t tried the gelatin ones yet, but I have tried papaya and pineapples many times before and they have always worked for me and use caster sugar pucca………….
Jomol, I’m so eager to try the Gentle Fruit Peel :yes:
Uzma please try and tell me how it worked for you :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot: :woot:
Jomol………….m gonna try the tomato peel.
I actually scrub tomato directly…..its great cleanser, toner 😀

Thanks Noopur…… :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:
Jomol can you try these face packs as a part of regular skin care routine also or these are especially for people who are looking for acne cure?
Rati……even non-acne people can try these……these not only work for acne prone but is equally good for people who are interested in a clean-up sort of thing…….papaya and pineapple should work for all sorts of skin types :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
this will help more post acne to get rid of blemishes n all thoz scars but i doubt it will wrk on treating d acne part
I will try Jomol .. I loveed th pineapple idea on skin… :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
I totally swear by these peels.They are versatile cheap and easy.But make sure you use loads of sunscreen afterward since these peels make you more susceptible to sun damage.
Sonia….thanks for adding that bit….actually whatever skin treatments or facials we are taking…..it is imperative to use sunscreen to protect the skin……………..
Arch…..I think you should try first the pineapple and papaya with caster sugar one…it is painless of course and the results are almost instant……..gelatin you can ask at your local pharmacy…..if you go to supermarket, i guess most probably you will end up with flavoured gelatin………
arch please try gelatin at your local grocery shop also….the place where they sell baking soda, citric acid stuff
I am going to try these peels for sure :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1: :jiggy1:

ur welcome Bee……………waise, i don’t think you need peels..you have a damn good skin :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali:
Unflavored gelatin is generally easily available at typical general stores, but they may not come in sachets, you may have to store them in the fridge etc. a company called blue bird makes baking powder , gelatine etc. even crown makes unflavoured gelatine..
btw one doubt – if we are using egg, do we still need gelatine , wont egg form the film that gelatine does any ways..
Love you jomol 🙂 :-* :-* :-* i was so wanting to know what way to do glycolic peeling at home without the fuss of sugar cane juice bz that’s not available easily in all seasons .. till you suggested the caster sugar 🙂 I will sure sure try the fruit peel and let you know 😀
