In brief: Depends...

...On the type of peel.
If it was a superficial (lactic or acetic or salicylic acid) peel, such as those you do yourself, yes - absolutely. Wash gently, don't use a harsh soap, and don't rub vigorously. For deeper peels, such as those done by doctors, follow the directions your doctor gave you.
