For free since i Dj for them. I was told not to pick scratch or wash w a rag. Ugh I only did this because I wanted to make my old acne scars less visible. Hopefully it heals soon I am
A Dj this is embarrassing I can't even wear makeup. Any suggestions. Only god knows why I didn't buy 30% not 70.

70% glycolic peel 2 min 2 weeks later still healing.

Well the burning and raw bleeding skin laste a week. Now it's scabby getting better w honey on my face helped the burning feeling and vasoline. This has been horrible but I think it will be better here real soon. I used 70% glycolic acid 100% buffered from
eBay. Never again maybe 30% in the future.

Next time use a neutralizer ..water will not do the trick. A 70 % peel should not leave you oozing.I do them every ten days and never have hot spots. I am also an esthetician but still...After my peel I rinse with cool water then neutralize with a neutralizing spray. I then pat my face gently with a paper towel.I do not use a regular towel because one never knows if the soap that is left in the towel will affect the rawness of the skin. I am very cautious. I do three passes over every area. I leave on no more than 4 minutes. I buy a jar of glycolic 70% every month. Its 15 dollars. Thats 5 dollars per peel.
