Eyelid Peel: Chemical peels can be very effective to improve the quality of your skin. However, since the eyelids are the thinnest skin of the body, great care must be taken with this skin. A very gentle peel may be done, but i wouldn't recommend a peel that leaves you visibly flaking and peeling at the eyelids.

Wrinkles at 19!: Hard to believe this is true. It's not the thin skin that's the issue as a very light peel can work but it's hard to imagine the need for such.
