Day Seven Post 25% TCA Peel (06.25.16)

Today is Day Seven of my 25% TCA Peel.

My forehead, temples, and the bridge of my nose are the only areas that have not fully peeled yet.

To help expedite the healing process, I am doing the following:

1) applying cool compresses of white vinegar water (one tablespoon of vinegar to one cup of water) to my face three times a day 

2) applying tea bags twice a day to my entire face (the tannic acid is supposed to help with burns)

3)  applying hydrocortisone at least three times a day.  My cheeks and chin look pretty normal now.  Just slightly pink, but nothing that looks out-of-the-ordinary.

The good is this:  I can begin to see areas where the skin is getting ready to peel.  So, I am hopeful that the healing process will continue as normal.

I think that my forehead is not healing as quickly this time because I may have applied too much acid and applied it a bit unevenly.
