Myth #3: It's fine to hit the gym after having a peel
Truth: Activity that induces heat and sweating (e.g. working out, sauna) can cause water to become trapped between the skin layers with the chemical peel effects being intensified. Physical activity, causing heat, may exacerbate inflammation and cause your skin to become extremely irritated and uneven peeling. Sweating excessively can irritate the skin or cause blistering due to the sweat being unable to escape through the top layer of the skin.
Instead, we recommend alternate forms of exercise such as yoga, tai chi, pilates or walking. You should remain cool for 48 hours post-peel to avoid any heat-related complications post-treatment.
