Peeling during the summer?

There are several advantages but also disadvantages and dangers to doing a chemical peel during the hot period of summer / holiday time:

  1. Increased Moisture Retention:
    Skin peeling treatments often involve the removal of dead skin cells, which can improve the skin's ability to absorb and retain moisture. In summer, when the weather is hot and dry, maintaining adequate face and Body (in particularly legs) skin hydration can be challenging. By exfoliating the skin and promoting better moisture retention, a skin peeling procedure can help combat dryness and keep the skin hydrated. For best skin hydration, face and body, we recommend the IDEALDERM microdermabrasion cream.

  2. Time for recovery:
    Depending on the depth and intensity of the peel, your skin may require some downtime for healing and rejuvenation. Summer holidays often provide a more relaxed schedule and fewer commitments, allowing you to have the necessary time to recover without the pressure of work or other responsibilities.

  3. Improved Skin Texture and Tone:
    Skin peeling treatments, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, can help address issues like uneven skin texture, acne scars, dullness, and hyperpigmentation. By undergoing these peel treatments during the summer, when the skin tends to be exposed to more sunlight, you may experience better and more visible results. The increased sun exposure can aid in the fading of dark spots and pigmentation, resulting in a smoother and more even skin tone.

  4. Long-lasting results:
    Chemical peels stimulate collagen production and promote skin cell turnover, leading to long-term improvements in the appearance of your skin. By undergoing a peel during the summer holiday, you give your skin ample time to regenerate and for the results to fully manifest before resuming your daily activities.

  5. Reduced Acne Breakouts:
    Some individuals may experience acne breakouts during the summer due to factors like increased sweating, humidity, skin dried by the sun and air conditioning and pore-clogging products (in particular bad sun creams). Skin peeling treatments can help unclog pores, remove excess oil and dead skin cells, and reduce the chances of developing acne. By undergoing a skin peeling procedure in summer, you can potentially minimize the occurrence of acne breakouts and enjoy clearer skin during the season. A suitable sunscreen (fat-free and non-comedogenic) is essential after the peeling to avoid mallorca acne. We recommand thatfor the AGE AND SUN SPF 50+.

  6. Improved skin appearance and confidence boost:
    Improved skin appearance can significantly boost your self-confidence. By undergoing a peel during the summer holiday, you can take advantage of the time off to allow your skin to heal and reveal a fresher, more radiant complexion before returning to your regular routine. Then you can return to your regular routine with renewed confidence and a rejuvenated look.

    Disadvantages and dangers:
  7. Reverse effects without adapted Sun Protection:
    After a skin peeling treatment, the newly revealed skin is more susceptible to sun damage. Performing the procedure during the summer, when people typically spend more time outdoors, may have reverse effects. It is important to take extra precautions and protect their fresh skin from harmful UV rays. It is essential to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen, protective clothing, and limit sun exposure after a skin peeling treatment. In addition, a suitable sunscreen (fat-free and non-comedogenic) is essential after the peeling to avoid Mallorca acne*. We recommend that for the AGE AND SUN SPF 50+.

In conclusion,
it is indeed beneficial and important to have a face and body peel, particularly during this period, but it is essential to choose the right products. We recommend using the following products which are adapted to carry out a peeling more comfortably during the hot period:

IDEALDERM's 50% microdermabrasion cream
IDEALDERM's 50% microdermabrasion cream allows mechanical peeling without a machine. Thanks to more than 50% of active ingredients, it allows a strong efficiency without undergoing the heat of the acids. The strength of the mechanical peel depends mainly on the pressure applied when rubbing the skin, thus gradually increasing its action. It therefore offers an ideal alternative to chemical peels during the summer.

IDEALDERM peeling mask with glycolic acid
IDEALDERM peeling mask with glycolic acid is what is called a cold peeling. Indeed, it offers the advantage of bringing a feeling of freshness during and after its action, thus avoiding increasing the strong feeling of heat of the environment. Thanks to the occlusion effect, its action is high and comfortable despite a "low" acid percentage of 15%.

IDEALDERM AGE AND SUN is an anti-age cream that offers excellent protection against UVA and UVB rays, which is very important after a peeling.
