A member asked:

My face is peeling from getting a tan, is a chemical peel (glycolic acid) on the skin a good home remedy?

Peeling skin & tan: The best thing for you skin is not to tan in the first place. I would avoid a chemical peel during this period while your skin is recovering for the acute injury cased by the tan, Instead hydrate your skin well and often, (I recommend either Epionce Medical Barrier Cream or SkinMedica TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream) and add a hydrating, broad spectrum antioxidant sunscreen of SPF30 everyday.
