How to Care for Your Skin After a Chemical Peel

By: Our Team


When you undergo a chemical peel at Elite Styles Salon and Med Spa in Miami, FL, under the guidance of skilled medical esthetician Vivian Mokwa, following the proper post-chemical peel care is crucial for achieving the best possible results. Chemical peel aftercare instructions are designed to help your skin recover and maximize the benefits of the peel. To ensure proper healing and avoid complications, here's what you should know about caring for your skin after the treatment.

What to avoid after a chemical peel

After receiving a chemical peel, avoiding certain activities and products is important to help prevent irritation and protect your skin while it heals. Here are a few key things to avoid:

  • Hot environments: Stay away from saunas, steam rooms, and hot showers for at least 48 hours
  • Exfoliating products and tools: Do not use scrubs, brushes, or exfoliating agents until your skin has healed
  • Makeup: Avoid applying makeup for the first 24 hours to prevent clogging the pores

Following these guidelines will help minimize potential side effects and support healing.

How do you protect your skin from the sun after a chemical peel?

Sun protection after a chemical peel is imperative, as your skin will be more sensitive to UV rays. To protect your newly exposed skin, consider the following tips:

  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen: Choose a product with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  • Wear protective clothing: A wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses can help shield your skin from direct sunlight.
  • Seek shade: Limit your sun exposure, especially during the 10 AM to 2 PM peak hours.

Implementing these steps will help prevent sun damage and maintain the positive effects of your chemical peel.

What are the best practices for post chemical peel care?

Incorporating a gentle skin care routine is key to enhance your recovery after a chemical peel. Here are some ideal practices to follow:

  • Gentle cleansing: Use a mild, soap-free cleanser to clean your face twice a day.
  • Hydration: To keep your skin hydrated, apply a fragrance-free moisturizer. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides.
  • Avoid picking: As your skin begins to peel, it's important not to pick or pull at the flaking skin to prevent scarring.

These steps will help ensure that your skin heals beautifully and gains the full benefit of the peel.
