What to do after the days of summer

Between the heat and the sun, there is no doubt that our skin took a beating over the summer months. With the seasons changing, so does the weather, and it’s the perfect opportunity to do some major recovery and repair to get your skin back to a healthy, balanced state. Here are some post-summer skin recovery tips to get that glow back!


With months of time spent in the sun, even if you’re the most vigilant SPF user (and we know you all are), Chemical peels are a great way to freshen up the skin after the summer. By removing part of the dead skin layer, peels can improve skin radiance and lighten discoloration. According to the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, chemical peels were in the top five minimally invasive procedures in recent years, with more than 1 million people opting for the treatment. One of the least invasive ways to improve the look of your skin, chemical peels offer a whole host of beauty benefits. Some of the greatest benefits are listed here:

  • Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles

  • Repairs Sun Damage

  • Budget friendly and can be repeated every 6 weeks*

  • Fast – sometimes referred to as the “lunch time peel”

  • Reduces appearance of sun damage and Melasma

  • Improves texture

  • Stimulates collagen production

  • Reduces acne and acne scarring


Chemical peels work well for both men and women, at any age and are the ideal treatment for anyone who wants to restore a more youthful, healthy glow to their skin. Everything from sun exposure and aging to acne and clogged pores can leave you with uneven skin tone, fine lines, scarring and a dull complexion. If you want your skin to look smoother, younger and most importantly, vibrant, a chemical peel can make a significant difference.


A chemical solution is applied to the skin and works by dissolving the upper layers of the skin. As the tissue is dissolved and skin heals itself, new tissue emerges and fresher, smoother skin is revealed. The depth and strength of the peel used varies based on the strength of the chemicals used and the length of time the solution is applied. The formula used will be customized and adjusted based on your needs and skin type.


Depending on what you want to achieve – a clearer complexion, smoother skin, minimize scarring, etc. there’s a perfect peel to suit your needs. I will help you achieve the glow you desire. Say yes to a chemical peel! Trust me; you won’t be sorry you did.
