Fall Exfoliation Guide: Acne Edition 

Fall Exfoliation Guide: Acne Edition 

Sponsored by: Face Reality Skincare

With shorter days and cooler weather approaching, we know that every esthetician’s favorite time of year is here—peel season! Now, we know you might be thinking, isn’t every season peel season? The short answer to that question is a resounding yes, but there are in fact certain times of year when performing peels is much easier on the skin—especially for the acne-prone individual

Though everyone’s skin can benefit from a corrective peel, it is particularly important for people with acne to get regular peels. We try to be as gentle as possible with acne-prone skin because it can be easily sensitized. Cooler months are the ideal time to perform peels because people tend to stay indoors more, and the UV index is generally lower (but don’t forget sunscreen, even inside). Also, a regular schedule of corrective peels helps accelerate the clearing process, and most importantly, it provides a priceless opportunity for estheticians to evaluate their client’s skin and to make any necessary changes to home care.
