Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.
I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.

If you had a peel yesterday, you should give it at least 2 weeks. Results after a peel take at least 15 days to be apparent. Mean while, you have to take all the necessary precautions like keeping the area moisturized and using a sun block very religiously and altogether avoiding the sun, if possible.

Peeling with salicylic acid or AHA compounds have shown benefit in psoriasis but they are not to be used in flare ups.

Hope this helps.
