Summer Peel!

Summer Peel!

I am often asked when is the best time for a chemical peel. I would have to say that there is never a bad time! Chemical peels can restore dull, aging skin to a more glowing and youthful look!

Chemical peels in the summer may make your skin more sensitive to the sun, but there are benefits to getting your chemical peel in the summer.

Glowing Skin

During the summer, your skin tends to be more oily. A chemical peel can help to reduce oil production and help with the greasy, shiny skin.

Quick Results

There is very little downtime with chemical peels, and if you are planning a summer soiree’, or beach escape, a chemical peel can help to even out the skin tones and give your skin a more flawless appearance in just a few days.

Look GR8 with less Makeup

If you dread perspiring under heavy makeup during the summer, having a chemical peel can help you show off your natural skin without the need for makeup. A chmical peel can tighten the skin and reduce pores making for a more smooth anbd even complexion. It can also be helpful to reduce acne breakouts and irritation.

Clean Slate

If you are dealing with sun damage from late spring or early summer exposure, or notice some new aging spots, a chemical peel may be just what you need to “clean the slate”. Erasing the damage can get you started to a beautiful appearance.

Timing is everything

Don’t wait for the fall crunch. Get started now when there are more relaxed work hours and available time. Get you skin ready for the fall holiday season! Perhaps you have some breakouts from wearing masks during the COVID epidemic? Chemical peels can help reverse those changes.

Protect your skin

Chemical peels for the summer can create a beautiful appearance, but take extra precautions when outside and exposed to the sun. Putting a sunscreen on at least 20 minutes before exposure and reapplying during the day will help keep your skin healthy and prevent irritation. Use of a sunscreen with SPF 50 or higher will protect your skin.

Are the required facial masks creating “Maskne” …acne under the mask? Here are some suggestions to reduce breakouts and skin irritations.

6 tips to help prevent Maskne.

  1. Be sure to do a through cleanse in the morning and at night.
  2. Apply a facial moisturizer after each cleansing to restore the moisture barrier.
  3. Drink plenty of water, 6-8 glasses a day will keep your skin from drying.
  4. Sleep with clean pillow cases where your head rests.
  5. Work out a schedule at your workplace where you can remove the mask for 5 – 10 minutes every hour. This will allow your skin a break from irritation.
  6. Maintaining a healthy diet will keep your skin healthy too! Eat plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids to your diet. Foods that are high in Omega-3 include fish, like salmon, sardines and anchovies, also tofu, soybeans and flaxseed and nuts. Also, try to reduce your carbohydrate intake. Excessive carbs can create inflammation and cause your skin to breakout and become irritated.
