There’s lots to love about summer, but not necessarily for your skin.   The sun makes your skin more susceptible to burning of course, but also bringing pigmentation issues to the surface.

Here are some top reasons to consider having a professional peel in winter or early spring.  We have a range of peels from very gentle to a more advanced chemical peel, depending on what your skin concerns and objectives are.  Learn more here.

 

  1. There is Less Sun Exposure

Depending on the intensity, a peel can leave the skin more fragile and vulnerable in the days following. This can be exacerbated if you spend too much time in the sun. With less exposure to direct UV rays during winter, the healing process of the skin after a peel is quicker, safer and much more effective.

TIP: REMEMBER TO WEAR SPF 50 SUNBLOCK FOLLOWING A PEEL, EVEN IN THE WINTER.

 

  1. Winter Weather is More Likely To Cause Dry Skin

During wintertime, the temperature drops and the winds pick up, resulting in dry skin for most people. Moving between heated homes and cars to the cool air outside further aggravates this.

Peels get rid of old, dead skin cells, speeding up the renewal process on the top layer of the skin. This makes your skin more receptive to moisturizing skin care products that work to protect and replenish it during the dry, winter months.

 

  1. A Well-timed Peel Can Counteract Summer Skin Damage

While there are many things to love about summer, those long hours in the sun can have a negative impact on your skin, resulting in:

  • Blocked pores
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Deepening appearance of unwanted wrinkles and facial lines

A peel now is an excellent way of removing any dirt, debris, oils and dead skin collected from the summertime, revealing healthy, more youthful and newer layers beneath.

  1. Help your serums absorb faster

It’s a great time to do an intensive restorative programme and step up your serums to combat winter effects and prepare your skin for a radiant spring.  After a peel the serums will penetrate more fully so you will get more bang for your serum buck.
