about a month ago, i decided to give myself an at home glycolic peel 30%. i thought it would be a good idea to do, (and yes i researched) to remove the top dead layer of my skin (to "brighten" it up).
omg!!! that was the worst mistake i ever did to myself! apparently, i got some type of an allergic reaction from it. i started breaking out in huge, painful bumps the first few days (i'm assuming they were CYSTS). after that, i would break out in pimples and whiteheads. i get a new pimple almost every single day, whiteheads just stay there (a lot on my jaw line). haven't really gotten a cyst after that first week. i've been like this for about a month now. i can't believe i gave myself acne!
i've been researching and no one else has had these kind of reactions from a glycolic peel. i mean yes, it is normal to break out the first few weeks after a peel but not like this. will this go away on its own or is it going to get worse? has this ever happened to anyone else? i'm so frustrated.
has this happened to anyone else? please help me.
