I have never had a chemical peel. Therefore, I have 3 questions: Must I avoid direct sunlight? If so, for how long? Will I be able to resume my current routine the following day? Are there any other precautions I must take?

You should avoid any form of tanning but it is impossible to avoid direct sunlight, so you must wear sunscreen. You should be able to resume your skincare routine that same day as long as it doesn't include any harsh scrubs. You should also discontinue prescription skincare at least 7 days before your chemical peel.
