While any time of year is good for a chemical peel the short winter days are perfect to exfoliate since there’s not as much sunlight to have to protect yourself from. Also the colder days and holidays make it a lot easier to stay inside for a few days to peel than in the busy summer. A TCA or glycolic skin peel is the perfect way to exfoliate the sun damage and rough skin from the summer and have your skin glowing at the annual Christmas parties and family dinners.
Don’t forget even though it might be cloudy out and it might seem like you don’t need to protect yourself from the sun, you still need to wear a sunscreen to protect yourself from harmful UV rays. Preferably a mineral based sunscreen, if you read my recent post about sunscreens you’ll see why.
Our chemical cosmetic peels can also make a great gift for anyone you know that loves to go to the spa. So don’t wait until the long sunny days of summer to peel, now is the best time of the year.
