  1. Avoid strenuous activities, such as working out, saunas, and steam the day you receive the peel. Increased blood circulation to the skin during this time can cause excess warming, tingling, itching, redness, or other side effects.
  2. Washing your skin with cool water can help soothe post-peel sensations.
  3. Avoid touching, picking, or scratching the dead skin. Let it shed off naturally, peeling it off yourself can lead to scarring.
  4. Keep your skincare simple. Avoid products with ingredients that could irritate the skin, and make sure you keep sunscreen and moisturizer on hand. When applying products, be careful not to rub or scrub your skin. Gently apply light layers of moisturizer throughout the day as needed. You may proceed to your regular skincare routine once the peeling process is complete and your skin no longer feels sensitive. 
  5. Use SPF! A chemical peel leaves you with a fresh layer of skin, so it’s important to protect it from sun exposure. Be sure to use a physical sunscreen of 30 SPF or higher.
  6. Don’t exfoliate. Whether it be chemical or physical, your skin will not need extra exfoliation after the chemical peel. Once you’re completely done peeling, you may resume using chemical or physical exfoliants.
