I don't use it on my entire face. I've had it for about a month now, (from MUAC), and the first 3 weeks I used it twice a week as recommended. The past few days though, I've been doing it daily. My skin never has a negative reaction to it...it hardly stings when I use it. I use it only on one spot, which is the huge embarassing scar right in the middle of my forehead. I desperately need to get rid of this scar within a month before I go on spring break (the first week of march).
I have also been using Neutrogena's fight & fade toner on it twice daily for about 5 days now (it has glycolic acid), along with 4% hydroquinone.
I hate this. ((
Is it okay to use chemical peels daily if my skin isn't that sensitive to it? I haven't had a breakout in months.
The scar is a few months old. The top part, though, the dark circle at the top is about a week old...
Hello "WrongTiming"! I use an 85% unbuffered Lactic Acid peel from Skin Beauty Solutions (can be purchased on Amazon) once every five days. During those five days my skin has time to renew itself from the inside out, but only if left alone for that period of time. That means no irritation from harsh chemicals, no matter how strong the temptation to hurry the process along. You see, the strength of the peel, both percentage and time left on, determine the results. Anything below 70% will give minor results, especially if diluted (buffered), and doing 40% daily will only disrupt the healing process (which is crucial to scar lifting). I know how frustrating it is to wait to see results when you've been plagued so long with problem skin, but in this instance, patience is key to better treatment. Good luck to you!
