There’s never a bad time to get a chemical peel, but it might seem surprising to some that getting a chemical peel during the winter months may be ideal. So, why is this? Why get a chemical peel to prepare for winter? In this post, we’ll provide reasoning for the benefits of a winter chemical peel.
A New Year’s Resolution
One of the main reasons that people get chemical peels in the winter is because of new year’s resolutions. Most people want to begin the new year looking and feeling better than they did before Christmas. Quite often a beauty treatment can be a great way to boost self-confidence, create a more positive self-image and improve mental health. By starting the new year on a fresh foot (and with a fresh face!) the rest of the winter doesn’t appear as bleak.
Working With The Weather
Humidity generally drops during the colder months which can lead to drier, damaged skin. Opting for a chemical peel during the winter will remove the seasonally impaired surface and offer up a fresh new layer of smooth, hydrated skin cells. Another reason why getting a chemical peel in the winter can be a smart choice is that the newly exfoliated skin will not be exposed to as much heat and direct sunlight. Chemical peel recipients are advised to avoid prolonged exposure to sun and excessive heat for up to four weeks after a treatment. This can be much more easily accomplished in the winter months than it can be in the middle of the summer.
Prepare Your Skin For The Warm Weather
By planning ahead and scheduling your chemical peel for the winter, you’ll be looking your best once beach season comes around again. Any after-effects of a light or medium chemical peel will be long gone by the time summer rolls around. You’ll be able to enjoy the heat and the sunshine without having to worry about doing damage to freshly treated skin. Make the most of your summer by getting your chemical peels done in the winter.
