How Long After Chemical Peel Can I Resume Exercise?

Thanks for your question. It is typically recommended to wait 72 hours before any rigorous exercise  that would cause you  to sweat. You want to keep your body cool especially the first 24 hours. Best wishes.

Exercise after a chemical peel

If your peeling is complete, you are fine to resume exercise.  I would recommend indoor exercise, still wearing sun protection.
