I've actually had mixed results withactive acne.. I've noticed that it tends to irritate and blister the spot, making it much bigger than it was before. Others were dried out

I avoided my active acne for the most part so that I could treat them separately overnight. My peel didn't irritate my face at all, but it most definitely increases my cell turnover. I've used it 3 times now and have increased the time that I've left it on by 4 minutes. I leave it on for 5 minutes total now before I wash it off. My peel is lactic acid and glycolic acid.

How often are you using it? And what's the concentration?

I'm using it weekly so far, but I might use it every 3-4 days since it doesn't irritate my skin. I can tell it takes a layer or two off, though, because my skin sort of lightly peels over the next couple days after applying it.

 

It's 30% Glycolic Acid/30% Lactic Acid. This one: http://www.amazon.co...0/dp/B000PNTQW0

Hey Aztec girl,
While you were in ziana and using lactic acid at the same time. Did you notice anything difference on your skin or did your doctor said not to use peels while on ziana. I'm asking because my derm prescribed me with ziana and I've been using it for like 5 months now. I don't have no more zits but when I stop using it they start coming out again. And I want to start using lactic acid, but I read on this website that its bad to do peels while on retinoids. So how did it go for you while using them at same time? Any complications?
Sorry for the long post.
