Peel Back the Layers: How to Recover from a Chemical Peel
The Jackson 5 said it themselves, “It’s as easy as 1,2,3,” but when it comes down to it, adding just another thing to your skincare routine can seem impossible. However, even though you take off your makeup before bed every night and cleanse twice a day, there are still other things you should be doing for your skin— especially as you age. From getting frequent chemical peels to wearing sunscreen, this article will discuss a few things to add to your skincare routine. Read on to learn more.
If you have never had a chemical peel, let’s just say you are missing out. By helping treat a variety of skin issues like fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne, hyperpigmentation, and volume, chemical peels can do wonder for your skin. When you come into Dr. Tracy Evans office for your peel, you can expect to leave the office with skin that is already glowing. By applying a chemical like glycolic acid to your skin and leaving it on for a few minutes, it will encourage the production of new cell growth— leaving you with a healthier complexion.
Yes, you may cleanse your skin twice a day, but you should also be exfoliating no more than twice a week. By using a simple over-the-counter exfoliating scrub, you can get rid of blackheads, whiteheads, and dry skin.
If you are going to add one thing to your skincare routine, this should be it. Wearing sunscreen on your face every day will help shield you from things like premature lines and wrinkles, skin cancer, hyperpigmentation, chronic dryness, and more. Whether it’s cloudy or sunny, wearing a sunscreen every day will keep your skin looking more youthful for longer.
