How to Care for Your Skin After a Chemical Facial Peel

woman smiling and applying facial skin care productsChemical facial peels are great for treating and reversing a number of skin conditions, like hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and even acne! They work to remove the outer layer of your skin and reveal a new brighter and smoother layer of skin. After a chemical peel, your skin can be temporarily vulnerable and delicate. Because of this, it’s important that you follow these post-peel skin care tips! 

Avoid Direct Sun Exposure

The most important post-peel skin care tip is to avoid direct exposure to the sun. Since your new layer of skin is so delicate, sun exposure can cause burns and even more visible signs of aging. If you find that you must be exposed to the sun, make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF30 or higher to protect your skin. 

Moisturize

Reinforcing your skin’s protective barrier that was removed during your facial peel is an important step in taking care of your skin. Use a medium or thick moisturizer, and be sure to drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration!

Don’t Over Exfoliate

Chemical facial peels are designed to provide maximum exfoliation, so you won’t have to exfoliate for at least 3 or 4 days after your peel! Over exfoliating can be detrimental to your delicate post-facial skin and can leave you feeling red and sensitive. 

If you decide to get a facial peel, make sure to follow these steps for the best results. Once your skin goes back to normal you can resume your skin care regimen and reap the benefits of glowing, exfoliated, and illuminated skin!
