Taking care of your skin after a peel
To stay comfortable after a peel and improve healing, you should:
Apply ice packs or use a fan to relieve the burning. Just be careful to not let the skin dry out in front of the fan.
Moisturize frequently. Apply moisturizer any time your skin feels tight, dry, or itchy. You may need to apply moisturizer 10–20 times a day in the days following a peel.
Follow all aftercare instructions your doctor gives you. Your doctor will ask you to follow a skin care regimen including gentle cleansing and antibiotic ointment if necessary.
Do not pick, peel, or rub your skin. The peeling outer layer acts like a bandage and protects the new skin underneath. Removing this layer too soon can lead to burning, pain, and potential scarring. Hot water in the shower and sweating can also cause your skin to come off too soon.
Take any medications your doctor prescribes. You may be instructed to take over-the-counter pain-relievers and/or antibiotics.
Prevent sun exposure. The skin is especially sensitive to the sun after a peel. Completely avoid the sun until your skin is fully healed, and be careful to use proper sun-protective clothing and sunscreen in the months following to prevent dark spots from developing and protect against damaging sun burns.
If you are bothered by the redness and peeling of your skin, you can wear makeup to cover it once your skin is no longer irritated.
