How can i treat my raw skin cause of salicylic acid? I apply coconut oil on it, is it okay? (photo)
11 months ago
3 days ago I applied salicylic acid on my forehead because of acne and it got burnt, patchy and dry, then i peeled it off the next day. Then my skin is now raw and pink, then i apply coconut oil as mosturizer. Is it okay? Any suggestion and advice of how it will heal? How long does it take? Can I use peeling products again after it healed? Does this mark scars? If ever, how will I treat it and be gone? Please, hope you answer my question because it's really freaking me out :'(

I would suggest a ceramide moisturizer after a salicylic acid peel to reduce redness and dryness of the skin.
