As a general rule, you should reach for sunscreen constantly for the first 2 weeks after any skin peel. Make sure to apply sunscreen anytime you go outside in the days following your treatment.

Don’t spend prolonged time out in the sun for the first 10 days after your skin peel procedure, as you’ll be more prone to sun damage than usual.

Wash your hands before you touch your face.

Don’t put on makeup for 48 hours.

You’ll also need to avoid swimming pools, saunas, and situations where you might sweat heavily, including intense workouts at the gym, to protect your newly treated skin. After 72 hours have passed, you may be able to resume these activities.
