With a chill in the air, you are likely starting to get your Thanksgiving plans ready and are maybe even starting your holiday shopping— can you say “black Friday?” And although there are many things to plan for regarding the holidays, you also need to properly plan ahead in order to take proper care of your skin during the cool weather. From moisturizing your skin to coming into Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery, there are many treatments that you can add to your list. However,no treatment is quite as important as getting a chemical peel during the cold weather. Read on to learn more. Replenish and Renew During the summer, you likely spent a lot of time outside with friends and family— either laying out or doing something more outdoorsy like going on long hikes. And although being active and getting your dose of vitamin D is good for the soul, it can cause your skin to dry out, become cracked, and get sun damage. Luckily, with the help of a chemical peel, you can replenish and renew your skin to get rid of that sun damage and sun spots. By removing the top few layers of your dermis, a chemical peel works from the inside out in order to encourage the natural growth and production of new skin that is filled with more collagen. Not As Many Risks of Sunburn After you get a chemical peel, your skin is much more sensitive to things such as light and the sun. And although the sun is still shining during the cooler months, it will be a lot easier for you to stay indoors and avoid the sun when it's cold outside than during the hot summer months when all you want to do is spend time at the beach. Just remember that even though it's cold outside, you can still get a sunburn, so limit your time outside to hardly any time at all. There is no better time of year to get a chemical peel than during the cool months of fall and winter.
