Peperomias are semi-succulents and they should not get completely dried out. Water when the top quarter of the soil feels dry.

The damaged leaves probably will not recover and may have to be trimmed off if they are unsightly. All you can do is increase the watering. Healthy new growth should come in slowly. Be patient.
