There are plenty of obvious chemical peel benefits when you do a little research on them. But once you’ve decided to get yours, you may wonder whether the winter is actually the best time of year to do it. Since your skin is covered up most of the time, is this really the most effective time to do it?
The answer is an astounding “yes.” You can’t wait until the temperatures warm up to take care of your skin. By that time, it may be too late. Taking action by getting a chemical peel now will ensure your skin is ready to go by the time the temperatures rise. Here are some of the main reasons why winter is the best time of the year to get a chemical peel.
Less Sun Exposure
One of the keys to a successful recovery is to limit sun exposure. Your skin will be vulnerable once a chemical peel takes effect, so limiting sun exposure is critical. During the winter, your skin is covered up most of the time anyway, so you won’t have to worry as much about that aspect. Plus, hyperpigmentation and other skin issues can be more easily resolved when sun exposure is minimized.
Chemical Peel in Conjunction With Other Winter Skin Care Products
Many clients bump up their use of skin care products in the winter to prevent dry skin. Getting a chemical peel can help make these products more effective, since there will be no dead skin cells in the way of the product penetrating the skin. One of the fears is not being able to keep up with your skin care routine in combination with a chemical peel, but the reality is actually the opposite.
Prepare Your Skin For Warmer Months
Finally, one of the best chemical peel benefits is having your skin ready for the warmer months before the temperatures actually rise. You can still get great chemical peel results during the spring and summer, but you have to be more cautious about taking care of your skin due to sun exposure and participating in other activities. With a winter chemical peel, the recovery process is already complete and you won’t have to miss doing the activities you enjoy because of your skin.
