Chemical Peels: How to Achieve Radiant Skin this Fall

Chemical Peels: How to Achieve Radiant Skin this Fall

We’ve talked before about our skin’s 27-day cycle—how, almost like magic, our bodies grow new skin cells to replace those that have finished doing their work. Just like autumn leaves, the old cells fall away to make room for the fresh skin beneath—or at least, that’s how it’s supposed to work. But sometimes our skin needs a helping hand clearing away the dead skin, oils, and toxins that build up and hold our skin back from true radiance. That’s where chemical peels come in.

As autumn finally makes its way to Eustis, FL, the artful skincare scientists here at ALo Medical are getting ready for peel season. If you’re looking for the perfect way to combat dehydration, calm acne flare-ups, and get photo-ready for the holidays, look no further than our Beauty Bar.

Why is fall the best time to get a chemical peel?

The holidays may be the most wonderful time of the year for us, but for our skin, it’s a different story. Even in Florida winters, our skin needs a little extra TLC as humidity starts to drop around November. Getting a chemical peel in the fall and winter has a number of benefits—let’s take a closer look.

Add Extra Hydration to Combat Dry Air

Chemical peels are designed to reinforce your skin’s moisture barrier, removing dry skin at the surface and rehydrating fresh skin beneath. We sometimes refer to the outermost layer of your skin as the moisture barrier because it protects you against external dirt and irritants while locking in the essential natural oils and nutrients that give you that supple, glowing look.

Colder, drier air and central heating systems both pull moisture from the skin—but chemical peels help combat this process. The simple first act of opening the pores with steam gives your skin a hydration boost. Then, your esthetician will apply a chemical formula that removes impurities that aren’t serving the moisture barrier. In the final step, they will apply spa-grade moisturizers and skincare agents for a final layer of ultimate protection against the elements.

Boost Skin’s Microcirculation in Lower Temperatures

Our bodies react to cooler temperatures than they’re used to whether we’re in Central Florida or Central Park. One crucial reaction happens in the tiniest blood vessels on the surface of our skin, the capillaries.

When it’s cold, capillaries restrict in an attempt to preserve your body’s overall internal temperature, reducing blood flow to the outer layers of skin. With less oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood at the surface, your skin can’t remove impurities as efficiently. Over time, this process can cause skin to become dry, irritated, uneven in tone, or “washed-out” in appearance.

Chemical peels stimulate blood flow and the production of collagen—one of our skin’s most important structural elements. Collagen is responsible for keeping the skin hydrated, plump, and strong. By boosting blood flow and collagen simultaneously, you can achieve:

  • More even skin tone
  • Skin “glow”
  • Relief from acne & rosacea
  • Reduction of melasma, dark spots, and summer sun damage
  • Reduction of enlarged pores
  • Enhanced skin “bounce”
  • Less congested appearance
  • Minimized fine lines & other signs of aging


Recover Easier with Fewer UV Rays

One of the most important things to do after you receive a chemical peel is avoid exposure to UV rays. Because chemical peels reveal fresh, new skin, you’re also more sensitive to UV light during your recovery. Even though you can get chemical peels year-round, we find autumn and winter to be easiest for our patients simply because it’s easier to avoid prolonged time outdoors.

We know—being asked to avoid the sun in Florida is like being asked to avoid water in the ocean. But even though fewer UV rays reach the ground this time of year, you’re still at risk for skin damage without proper protection.

It’s crucial to wear SPF 30 sunscreen after your chemical peel and minimize your time in direct sunlight. So let the cozy vibes reign while your skin works on its gorgeous autumn glow!

Get Photo-Ready for the Holidays

As you get ready for the holiday hustle and bustle, don’t forget to give your skin its own gift—the gift of rejuvenation. A chemical peel gets you perfectly dewy, soft skin while fortifying it against the dry air, cooler temps, and environmental irritants that can make us feel less than holly-jolly.
