Question: Can I workout after a fruit acid gel peel with kojic acid? If so, how soon after the application?
Also, I currently use prescribed Retin A, Tretinoin, how soon may I continue my nightly treatment after applying the peel?
Answer: Yes! You can definitely workout after applying the peel, and of course washing it off thoroughly with cool water. Your skin may be more prone to redness after the peel, so you may look REALLY red after working up a sweat at the gym. But it’s not unsafe, you just might look more red than usual.
We recommend using peels at night however, since skin can be more sensitive to UV rays after application, and using sunscreen daily is highly recommended. Sunscreen protects the new skin you’ve brought to the surface, and you don’t want UV rays penetrating deeper and damaging the new layers.
Regarding Retin A, I have to recommend that you consult your dermatologist or doctor, since we don’t recommend those products to be used at the same time.
