Mercedes b200 paint peeling

Hey everyone
I recently purchased a preowned 2010 b200.
I just noticed the paint near the headlight area is peeling. Is this something I can repair myself ? Plus, the headlight is peeling a layer of plastic. How can I fix this ?
I am complete new to this. Any help/ advice would be appreciated.
Ben

The paint repair really depends on experience with auto finishes.

As far as the headlights peeling there are several ways to polish it so that it looks nice and new.
This kit a crowd favorite. I did mine then applied a UV clear coat over the lenses. The still look fantastic after two years.
