Glycopeel in the armpit

Good Question, you want to avoid working out after a peel (especially after one in the armpit for at least 4 days). Allow your skin to heal and if you are sensitive at all I would avoid any strenuous cardio.  An alternative to a peel would be getting microdermabrasion done and if you are trying to lighten the skin in the arm pit area in combination with a topical skin lightener such as 4% Hydroquinone. Good Luck!
