After undergoing a TCA Peel it’s important to use a good gentle moisturizer to try to keep your skin moist. It has shown that using moisturizer promotes faster and better healing than dry skin. While a gentle moisturizer such as Cetaphil and are good for light peels, when receiving a TCA peel over 20% strength regular moisturizers just aren’t going to cut it. For the first week as your face peels keeping your skin moist with vaseline is reccomended by us and many doctors. But be aware that vaseline is not compatible with make up and may cause pimples or millia, which will go away after you discontinue using it. After your skin peels a gentle moisturizer should be sufficient and you can stop using the vaseline.
Other doctors recommend using a gentle moisturizer and only using vaseline on problem areas since it can clog pores and cause pimples.
