Any website or derm that you talk to would never advise to use them that often! It doesn't just exfoliate the top layer of skin, it is a controlled burn! They suggest 2 weeks between 8% and only 3 consecutive peels 4 weeks apart for anything higher percentage wise! They suggest that you only do that once or twice a year. Even MUAC, the website you ordered it from, has it all over their site AND the directions that they send along with the product. http://www.makeupart...its-104-22.html
Also, TCA self neutralizes 5-8 minutes, so leaving it on longer does not make it more effective, it's just irritating your fragile skin.
I am quite literally cringing for poor skin.
To anyone else reading this, please do not use peels in this manner. Follow the directions that come along with the product.
I imagine that your skin barrier is completely obliterated and that's what's contributing to your acne.

I've been researching serums to incorporate into my night time routine and I've read good reviews about it. I was debating between the Caudalie and Estee Lauder serum. The Estee Lauder had alcohol in it and seemed to irritate reviewers skin so I opted out of of that. I also purchased the Philosophy Turbo Booster C. It's just a vitamin C powder to mix in w/my moisturizer. I'll start using that next week once I get a feel of the serum

Was doing some reading and came across this. Blue light isn't effective on cystic acne. http://cysticacnehq....eat-cystic-acne

Left my Cerave moisturizer last week at friends house so I've been experimenting with samples that I've received. Philosophy Hope in a Jar smells like plastic chemicals and is so heavy that I feel like it clogs my pores. The Miracle Worker moisturizer is slightly better and a bit lighter similar consistency like to the Cerave moisturizer but still has this plastic odor to it. I think the Hope in a Jar broke me out bc a small pimple popped on my forehead.The DDF ultra-lite oil-free moisturizing dew was not a good choice either. Felt heavy and smelled too. I'll stick to CeraVe PM my HG moisturizer. Also used the Kinerase C8 Peptide Serum and it was more of a moisturizer than serum. Thicker than my CeraVe. Almost like Cetaphil Moisturizer consistency. It was okay. Didn't break me out but didn't really see instant results either. I'll see how it goes. I have really seen any instant improvements witht the Caudalie either.
Rinsed face w/warm water
Massgaed Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for 60 seconds
Rinse face. Pat dry.
Apply organic honey onto face. Wait 5 mins.
Steam face with honey on face for 5 mins.
Rinse off with warm water. Pat dry.
Use Personal Microderm
Rinse face with Cetaphil again
Go outside slice an Aloe Vera leaf off and sliced it off
Apply to face. Leave on for 5 mins. Rinse off. Pat dry.
Appy Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum
Apply CeraVe PM mixed with Philosophy Turbo Booster C. It burns =(
Use Tanda Blue light all over face
Use Tand Red light
Apply Duac on active pimples.

Two weeks ago cystic pimple broke out bt my eyebrows and right t-zone area by my nose, The pimple by my nose diminished when I used my blue light. Tanda was too big to use bt my eyebrows. Breaking out in small little bumps around my cheeks I think due to my MAC mineralized blush. Any time I use blush or bronzer I always break out. I haven't been able to find cheek products that do not break me out. My period finished but I still have scarring on my chin from all the break outs I had previously. Been using my PMD w/out the discs to suck the gunk out of my pores. Works better than the blackhead remover tool.
Shower to steam face
Use PMD w/out disks to suck out bores press down with a little pressure and rotate downwards. You can see the white gunk coming out when you press down and being sucked away.
Aztec Healing Green Clay with ACV

I keep breaking out in cystic acne on my chin. =( It's so itchy. Worst time to break out just before a big event. Did the honey, aztec healing clay, yogurt mask, green tea scrub today in the evening. I've been doing oatmeal scrub every morning. Feel like the Caudalie serum is congesting my pores as well may have to discontinue w/that serum.
