Feeling Optimistic!



Well I have still yet to get any new pimples since Friday and my existing pimples (except the 2 from Friday) are completely flat and just have that tiny, flake-like scab that needs to just pop off. So as of now I would say I'm about 90% clear.

I also decided to up the concentration of my chemical peel yesterday to about 50ish% and I also left it on for about a min. longer (3 min or so), and I think this was a good decision. This morning I woke up and for the first time, I can notice there is a very very slight lightening in my PIH (I've realized I've been saying PHI for a really long time lol). Even though the difference is small, it is the first time in a very longgggg time that I have seen any kind of difference at all. And the fact that this is only 1 day after my peel makes me feel even better about the fact that I will see improvement in the next few days, and also after my next 2 peels.

I have decided that I am going to give myself a week after my last peel before I go to the beach because I did some more research and the overwhelming majority of advice says to give it 48 hours for glycolic peels, with even a few saying the time it takes for skin to fully recover after a light glycolic peel is 12 hours. So I think a full week, in addition to applying 30spf to my face when I do go will be more than enough time to let my skin heal enough for sun exposure :think:

Wish me luck!
