Should I Try A Chemical Peel?

Recommended Posts

I have huge pores on my cheeks/nose and redness along those areas too. I used to be on the regimen which did reduce my acne but did nothing for the redness on my face. Right now I just use the C&C foaming cleanser and Cetaphil moisturizer.

It seems that lots of people have had success with chemical peels. Are they prescriptions only or can one get it over the counter?

It depends. Is the redness a result of inflammation, PIH or irritation? If it's not inflamed or irritated and it's just PIH than a chemical peel could help. Otherwise, a peel could cause further irritation.

I've had chemical peels done before, but unfortunately they don't shrink your pores. I know, it sucks! The only they've for me was tighten my skin a little, but that went away after a week. They also made my chin break out.
