Chemical Peel Aftercare Tips

Chemical peels are a great way to give your skincare a boost and push the reset button on your skin. Chemical peels are used for fine lines, wrinkles, softer skin, radiant skin, dark spots, age spots, and an overall more youthful appearance. Chemical peels are loaded with benefits and generally are a great way to boost your confidence. That being said, it’s important to properly care for your skin after a chemical peel is done. Let’s go over some simple chemical peel aftercare tips to keep your skin looking amazing.

Why Do I Need Aftercare?

The level of aftercare you might need is heavily dependent on what kind of chemical peel you receive. There are generally light, medium, and deep chemical peels. You may need very little aftercare from a light chemical peel, but medium and deep peels will need more care. This is because chemical peels strategically cause trauma to the skin and cause thin layers to peel off. This reveals the younger skin underneath. However, chemical peels are still technically causing a small injury that needs to health properly for good results.

Avoid the Sun

The sun naturally damages skin through UV light. However, your skin, after a chemical peel, is especially sensitive to UV damage while it’s healing. So it’s best to avoid the sun if possible. If you need to go out into the sun, make sure you’re covering up best as possible and using 30 SPF broad-spectrum sunscreen.


Your skin always needs moisture, but it especially needs it after a chemical peel. Just be careful not to use a moisturizer that doesn’t have harsh chemicals or irritants. The more natural the moisturizer, the better for your sensitive skin.

Use a Gentle Cleanser

Keeping up with your skincare routine after a chemical peel is important. However, it’s best to use a soap-free cleanser after a chemical peel. The last thing you want to do is irritate your sensitive skin.
