At 9:45 p.m last night, I washed my face with Ivory Soap and water and then applied alcohol to my face with a cotton square to remove any residual soap, dirt, and oil from my skin.
I then put on a shower cap to keep my hair off of my forehead and put on a pair of swimming goggles to protect my eyes.
Then, I poured a portion of the 25% TCA peel solution into a glass bowl and applied the first layer to my forehead, followed by my temples, nose, cheeks, and chin area.
Everything frosted as expected and burned like crazy. I couldn't find a fan, so I just suffered through the burning sensation for about five minutes.
I applied a total of three layers of the TCA solution to my face. Last summer, I applied five layers and my face became extremely brown and leathery. Last year, I was worried that perhaps I had overdone it and damaged my skin.
So, I only applied three layers this year.
After about 20 minutes, I rinsed my face with cold water and removed any remaining trace of the TCA from my skin.
I then applied a burn ointment to my entire face and went to bed.
