Washed Face and Applied Lotion the Same Day As My Jessner Peel. Did I Damage?

I had Lite Jessner peel at 10:00AM today. I mistakenly washed my face around 10PM and applied Cetaphil face lotion. I am very worried if this washing and applying lotion has undone my peeling treatment totally or might cause some adverse impact of the treatment. Please advise if I should be worried at all or not. I will follow instructions carefully from tomorrow morning and next many days...but what I have done ( wash/lotion) is it a big deal?

No, you should not be worried at all. The peel neutralizes in approximately 4 hours rendering it safe to apply the recommended products without harming the treatment.
