I was asked what I wanted as a Christmas gift, and after watching Dr. Oz, I decided to get a chemical peel to improve my skin for the new year. He recommended the Brazilian Peel sold by Sephora, but I am not interested in purchasing from them, and not sure I want to pay $78/month to keep up with it. I found it also sold on Amazon, but still decided against it. In the recommended section of the site, there was an at home TCA chemical peel that had pretty good ratings. I decided to look around some more. Somehow, after doing more searching, I found another company that had different percentages of at home TCA chemical peels for fairly cheap, and they all had exceptional ratings and reviews. I decided that I would get a sample of the 12.5% or 15% peel, which I believe has enough TCA for roughly five peels each sample. I decided to also get a bar of green tea soap that the company sells since they recommend washing with it before and after the peel while healing. I will have to put away my DKR products for a while during the healing process.
I really don't want to screw up my face while it is healing, so any suggestions you guys can give me would be fantastic as far as products that will make it more comfortable. The site recommended Neosporin to be used, but I have read reviews to stay away from using this, and I am also thinking that wouldn't be the best product to be using on my entire face while it has the potential for an acne flareup. I usually use extra virgin olive oil, but I'm not sure I should use this either. I need to find some sort of antibiotic ointment and moisturizer that would help the healing. Thanks for the help, guys.
