How to Care for Your Skin after a Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are popular skin rejuvenation treatments that can address a wide range of common skin concerns, including uneven skin tone and texture, acne scars, lines and wrinkles and sun damage.

As their name suggests, most chemical peels cause the outermost layer of skin to peel away, revealing the fresh new layer underneath. This process can take anywhere from a few days to a week, depending on the depth of the peel. During this time, it is important that you take special care of your skin to protect it while it heals and to ensure you get the most out of your treatment.

How to Exfoliate Your Skin the Right Way

Exfoliation speeds up your skin’s own desquamation process, which is removal of dead skin cells from the surface so they can be replaced with fresh, new cells underneath. While regular exfoliation can make your skin smoother, brighter and clearer, there is a right and a wrong way to exfoliate. Follow these tips to help you get the glowing, blemish-free skin you want without causing dryness or damage.

1. Know Your Skin Type

Those with very dry or sensitive skin types, including those with inflammatory skin conditions like rosacea, eczema or acne are not typically good candidates for harsh physical exfoliants like facial scrubs.
