It's Peel Season: Help Your Clients Heal Their Dry Winter Skin

While it might be winter to everyone else, to those of us in the skincare business it’s peel season. Dry indoor air combined with cold temperatures outside can leave clients' skin dry, cracked, and flaky. Because peels are designed to remove dry and damaged skin, winter makes it the ideal time to talk to your customers about a peel treatment. We promise they won’t regret the radiant, glowing skin they see in the mirror all season long. Read on for just a few of our favorite reasons why winter is the best time for a chemical peel.


Peels breakdown the top layer of dead skin, dissolving the outer layers to even skin tone and texture. During the process, peels also help promote the building of collagen and make the skin more receptive to skincare products, increasing efficacy and performance. Basically, a peel gives the skin a chance to regenerate and create fresh, new skin in the least invasive way possible.


A flawless complexion lies just beneath the surface of acne-scarred skin, and a peel is one of the best and quickest ways to see results. Not only do they help minimize scars left behind from acne, but they can actually prevent breakouts as well. As you work with your clients, modify your techniques to concentrate on acne scars…don’t be afraid to mix products to come up with the ideal combination for their skin. Another benefit? There’s no real downtime to a peel.


Moisture-starved winter skin is prime for a little extra hydration, and a peel’s process is one of the best treatments for healing dry, damaged skin. Peels work from the inside out, stimulating cellular memory, boosting collagen, and leaving skin with a youthful glow.
