Fruit peels, also known as fruit acid peels or fruit enzyme peels, are cosmetic treatments that use natural fruit extracts containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or enzymes to exfoliate and renew the skin, improve texture and tone, and enhance overall skin health. Fruit peels are suitable for individuals with various skin types and concerns and are often used to address issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation, dullness, and aging.

Common fruit peel ingredients may include:

  1. Glycolic Acid: Derived from sugarcane, glycolic acid is a potent AHA that exfoliates the skin, stimulates collagen production, and promotes cell turnover, resulting in smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

  2. Lactic Acid: Found in milk and yogurt, lactic acid gently exfoliates the skin, hydrates, and improves moisture retention, making it suitable for individuals with sensitive or dry skin.

  3. Malic Acid: Derived from apples, malic acid helps exfoliate the skin, unclog pores, and promote cellular renewal, resulting in a clearer, more radiant complexion.

  4. Papaya Enzymes: Papaya contains enzymes such as papain and bromelain, which help dissolve dead skin cells, reduce inflammation, and improve skin texture and tone, making it ideal for individuals with acne-prone or sensitive skin.

  5. Pumpkin Enzymes: Pumpkin enzymes contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) that gently exfoliate the skin, reduce pore size, and improve overall skin clarity and brightness.

Fruit peels are typically performed as in-office treatments by licensed estheticians or skincare professionals. The procedure involves applying a thin layer of fruit peel solution to the skin and allowing it to sit for a predetermined amount of time before neutralizing and removing it. Fruit peels may cause mild tingling or temporary redness, but any discomfort usually subsides quickly.

After a fruit peel treatment, individuals may experience smoother, softer, and more radiant skin with improved texture and tone. To maintain and enhance the results of fruit peels, it is essential to follow a consistent skincare routine, avoid excessive sun exposure, and use sunscreen daily.
