callieque posted:
I am having a TCA peel in a few weeks. I already have heavy moisturizer (Aquaphor) to use immediately after the peel. I am interested in a good moisturizer to use after the healing process to maintain my fresh new look. I also have Skin Ceuticals 30 SPF for my face. I would like to be able to by a product at a local department store. Any suggestions?

Susan Evans, MD responded:
Dear callieque,

Your first step is to discuss optimum post TCA treatment with your physician. Next, choose a moisturizer that is non comedogenic (non-pore clogging). Your moisturizer should contain natural oils such as almond or avocado that is non-irritating and paraben free.

Best,

Dr Evans
