Is this what you called PEELING?

Recommended Posts

I have been putting on the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion (contains glycolic acis) so thick, 2-3 pumps on each cheek, for 3 consecutive days. My face was so red. Yesterday night, when I washed it off, I actually rubbed some dead skin off my cheeks. Now, my face looks like this...uhhhh..it hurts. I have put on aloe vera so thick! My face (mainly the cheeks) is still RED!

Is this what you expect what PEELING is? If not...why I can rub off some dead (peeled) skin?

Check out my log for some before pics!

I'd say leave the daed skin until it is ready to come off!!

That is pretty raw man, I bet it hurts!!

Let it go and lay off that product for a week or so, and let the dead skin natuarly exfoliate until it is real dead.

It will be OK though, we have (alot of us ) done this.

i dun think this is call peeling ...or it cant be determined by this picture

becoz u put aloe on it

peeling mostly refer to little flake of skin coming off....that's what i was understood...

so...i guess no

hope the redness go away soon

why did you put so much on in the first place?

hehe...I want FAST result...

peeling is like dead skin coming off- flaking.

YES..I got flaking today!

red stuff like that takes a bit of time to fade... doing it too much is just gonna make your skin worst... what i found out is alot of things on your face will be back to normal after a certain amount of time... sometimes treatment will make it worst because it effects how the skin react and let's face it, alot of product isn't perfect for each individual skin... what i've found out is just try to keep the acne under control, find a way to not get any more acne, and wait for the marks to fade away... gental peeling stuff might help speed it up.. but don't go as hard as making your skin peel off like that.

I don't get pimples quite often now...

I hate redmarks lol...especially those on my cheeks..leaving them alone seems like they take forever to fade away!

I hope my skin will back to normal soon! Wish me luck!

if you can do a a strong peel like SA and take like a week of ur winter break staying home to let it heal (itll be peeling n red so u wont want to go in public) that would work really good. I made a strong SA peel, my face got red and peeled, but guess wat my redmarks literally vanished with that one peel-just make sure to apply loads of moisturizer n not too rub. That was during summer when i could do that, by now the redmarks are back. As a matter of fact im doing a moderate SA peel on my forehead right now cuz i have it covered by hair so the peelin n redness isnt much of a issue.
