Chemical peels are another method of rejuvenating skin that often don’t require much downtime. A method of exfoliating the skin using natural and synthetic acids as well as other ingredients, chemical peels can help even skin tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
â€œSince people are outdoors during summer, we like to recommend a light chemical peel,â€ says Nicki Miler, Skincare Specialist at Audubon Dermatology. Since stronger peels require a bit more down time (usually due to post-treatment flaky, dry skin), theyâ€™re usually more popular later in the year. According to Miler, light peels require little-to-no downtime, and for oilier skin, she recommends a beta peel, which can be done any time.
In addition to peels, Miler is a big fan of AMP Glow Peel Pads, a new anti-aging product sold only by physicians and intended for use twice a week. A six-acid blend works in combination with vitamin B3, aloe vera and green tea. A true anti-aging treatment, the product works for both correction and damage-prevention and gives its user a nice glow.
