Is it ok to shave the day after you have a 20% Salicylic peel? Or will the skin be too sensitive?
Wait To Shave After Salicylic
It is best to wait at least 2 days after having a salicylic acid peel to shave. If you have any areas that have scabbed over you want to continue to avoid those areas until they are completely healed.

It should be OK
This is a very light peel. You should be able to shave, using a very emollient shave cream, after 24 hours. As always, check with your doctor to make sure they agree.

Salicylic acid is mild peel, you probably can shave with an electric shaver in the first week. then you can shave with the blade.
Even though it is mild try not to irritate the skin too much.
