Pimples after peeling – why do they appear?
Facial peeling is considered one of the most effective methods of combating rashes.

The rules of conduct in the rehabilitation period are not followed, this time already on the part of the patient. For example, a client touches the skin on his face after peeling because it it itches and itches, but does not treat his hands with antiseptic beforehand. Or, wanting to speed up the process of normalization of the appearance of the skin, tears off the crusts that form after peeling.

It can be a common allergy to the compound with which peeling was done or to the composition of post-peeling skin care products. Or hormonal disorders, which coincide with the peeling and manifest themselves by inflammation on the traumatized skin.
