It’s here! Yep…SUMMER! Kids out of school, graduations, Father’s Day, Vacations and more……How do I make summer work for me and my skin? To peel or not to peel? That is the question.

Even as hot as it can be, summer months in Arizona often bring more outdoor time and sun exposure. Wether you’re at a pool more with your kids, on an exotic vacation, or at the beach in Cali, our skin may be getting more sun than usual. Even with sun block and a hat (which I am sure you all are doing all the time!), it is impossible to escape all harsh sunshine rays. So, is it safe to be doing chemical peels? The answer is yes and no.

Depending on your skin type and/or your level of acne, a light chemical peel is safe if you are not planning on being at the beach for the weekend, you have a hat, and apply your sun block every hour. Otherwise, why risk it? Peels and Retin-A make skin more susceptible to burning which defeats the entire purpose. Take a short vacation from the peeling and just enjoy… The benefit to taking a short break? When you come back to your prescription peels and products, they work even better. Skin gets “used to” its routine. Mixing it up keeps our skin on its toes!

With that said, it is still vital to have exfoliating treatments and products. Enzymes with microdermabrasion and dermaplaning are a wonderful way to do so. Skin will stay looking radiant, refreshed and healthy. Check out my specials to help keep your skin vacation ready all summer long!
