What's the best sunscreen to use after a chemical peel?
Wearing SPF should already be in your daily skin care routine, but after a peel, wearing sunscreen is non-negotiable. Chemical peels are designed to remove dead skin cells to reveal the smoother, brighter skin beneath. As a result, they make your skin very sensitive to sun rays, so sunscreen and minimal sun exposure are extremely vital right after a peel.
There are SO many sunscreens on the market that have nasty ingredients or flaky formulas that don’t absorb properly.
We’re proud to unveil one of the best sunscreens to use after a chemical peel to make the healing process smooth sailing - Rosé S'il Vous Plait.
✓ No Pilling
✓ Ultra light-weight on skin
✓ Soothing ingredients
Silicone-Free Equals No Pilling
What products you use can dramatically impact your healing. It’s safe to say that after a peel, the only other product you should use other than moisturizer is sunscreen. Now, when it comes to choosing the best sunscreen, you’ll already be dealing with flaky skin from your chemical peel, so the last thing you need is the possibility of your after-care products flakey of their own accord - commonly called, ‘pilling’.
Pilling is not peeling. When you hear the term ‘pilling’ in skin care, it means that products you’re rubbing in haven’t fully absorbed into the skin. This leads to visible flaking and grittiness. You know those tiny white balls flaking off your face? That’s pilling. And it's freaking annoying - particularly if you’re trying to heal your skin right after a chemical peel.
The cause often comes down to ingredients within your SPF - particularly silicone or dimethicone. So, if you’re wondering why your products are flaking off during the day, next time check your sunscreen label for ingredients ending in -icone, -conol, or -xane.
That’s why the silicone-free Rosé S'il Vous Plait sunscreen is a must-have in your beauty cabinet. This silicone-free sunscreen formula removes the possibility of pilling completely!
