I kept waking up throughout the night last night as my face felt really tight especially my forehead.
This morning, I took a look at my face and much of the swelling has now subsided. I still have a little around the lower portion of my eyes, but that appears to be it.
I had huge swaths of brown skin all over my face when I first got up and took a look at my face in the mirror.
I took a long, warm shower and made sure to get the warm water on my face. I could feel the skin beginning to loosen on my forehead and on my cheeks and chin.
After showering, I could see more dead/brown skin had loosed and was falling off of my face.
Ironically enough, I have a 3:00 p.m. appointment at the dermatologist's office for something totally unrelated to this peel and I hope to look a bit more normal when I arrive there.
I plan on taking a second warm shower this afternoon to see if that loosens the few brown patches which remain from this 25% TCA peel.
The skin that was revealed from the areas that have peeled looks somewhat pink and very healthy.
Hopefully, my skin will look even better tomorrow after another 24 hours.
