Strenous Exercise and Sweating the Day After Vi Peel?

I am a runner and wondering if sweating on day 2 and after of the vi peel affects the effectiveness of the vi peel

You can sweat after the Vi Peel

After you have washed off the peel, which should be at least 4 hours after application, there is no problem with exercise and sweating. Just be sure to moisturize frequently. I recommend at least 4 times a day after a Vi Peel.

Strenous exercise and the Vi Peel

If you perspire after your VI Peel it creates irritation on the surface of the just treated skin. The salty components of your sweat causes a burning on the surface of the skin, causing undo discomfort and chances for complications. After the initial 2 or 3 days following your VI Peel regular exercise that causes perspiration should be OK.

Avoid sweating after ViPeel for first 2-3 days

Heavy sweating for the first 2-3 days after your ViPeel can cause facial stinging and make the skin peel too soon. If you started running 2 days after the peel you'll most likely be fine. I'm assuming you don't have any risk factors that cause slow healing, such as being a smoker. Hope this helps. Take care.
