It feels like your face is on fire. but the acid is only left on for 15 minutes-ish. So its not too hard to deal with. But it leaves your skin dry, flakey, red and it takes a few days to recover.I had a salicylic acid peel on Thursday and my skin has been flakey as expected, but is it okay to peel the dead skin off? Or will the skin fall off naturally? Its now Saturday, so its been a couple days.
