Chemical skin peels – can I have them in summer?

Chemical skin peel treatment

Summer’s here and it’ll soon be holiday season – especially if you’re looking to escape this relentless rain!

We all like to look and feel good in summer, and one of the best ways to achieve it is by having clear and glowing skin.

Chemical skin peels are one of the best beauty treatments out there for giving tired skin a refresh.

But if you’d like to treat your skin to a peel before heading off on your holidays, or even just to slough off that dull winter skin ready for a summer at home, you will need to take extra care of your skin in the sun.

After chemical skin peels

Though the skin peels performed in a skin clinic are gentle, they still involve removing the outermost layers of skin. This is why they can give you such great results – especially if you’ve decided to book a course of peels.

In the days following a skin peel, your skin will be a little more sensitive to the sun. So even though we would always advocate using sun protection every day – especially in summer – it is even more important to do so if you’ve recently had a peel.

Not only is it a great preventative measure to help stop those fine lines, sun spots and uneven pigmentation recurring – it’ll also stop you getting sunburn and peeling off your newly beautiful skin!
