Now that it is winter, it’s a good time to get that chemical peel you have been thinking about all summer. A chemical peel is like giving your face a fresh start. It can address skin concerns ranging from hyperpigmentation, acne scars, wrinkles, skin tone and dehydrated skin among other things. The truth is, your skin spent a lot of time enjoying the beautiful sunny weather we are blessed with in San Diego. And, while warm weather pleases most of us, sunlight can also damage your skin. Blemishes, pigment spots, raised veins, redness and wrinkles are all a result of sun exposure, and moisturizing cream can only do so much. In fact, the dead cells on the outermost layer of your skin can actually block the effects of your moisturizer no matter how good it is.
