Questions about Lactic Acid Peel

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the 40% Lactic Acid peel from Puredeming.com. I've used it twice and I haven't seen much change in my redmarks (which I know is to be expected so early on). My problem is that it makes my skin really red and scaley. I've left it on for about 4 minutes each time, then wash and moisturize afterwards. My skin stays red and dry for the next few days. Also, since I've used it, I've gotten a few GIANT zits in places where I normally don't break out.

So, I'm wondering, has anyone else broken out after using a lactic peel? If so, is there any way to prevent this?

And is there anyway to reduce the redness and dry skin after using the peel? If I only left it on for 1 or 2 minutes, would that make any difference in how dry my skin becomes?

Thanks!

the skin tends to break out when it gets very dry, i have noticed this with mine. i think when using an acid peel when you feel it start itching wash it off straight away and moisturize. whats the time scale between each appliance?

The second time I used it was 7 days after the first time. That's what it said to do on the Puredeming website...

Hi, i am also using the 40% lactic acid peel from purdeming. i've completed 4 peels and the results still aren't that noticeable. i too experience redness and dryness after the peel, but that usually goes away after 1 day of moisturizing. i suggest not using any products 1 day before the peel as well as 1 day after the pell (except for moisturizer.)

as for the breakouts, it could be purging although i haven't experienced anything. i suggest to follow with your regimen during the week to control break outs (BP/SA) and do peels on the weekend.
