I would abstain from any and all acne remedies while your face is in that condition. If you wanna wash it, splash it with luke warm water and maybe even apply some aloe vera.

I believe you are supposed to use the Intense Gel before you use the mini peel. I don't know if the reaction you got is normal or not because it's not supposed to be something you do.

Use something healing on your skin, and don't do anything harsh to it until it heals.

dude- I think you should give your skin a rest a little bit. Sometimes (just IMO) you'll give it sometime to relax and regenerate a little bit. See how it goes.

you're not meant to scrub off the dead skin cell but to let it fall off by itself....told to me by dr scheibner's disciple

if you look at the mirror every ten minutes, you're not going to see any difference. it's hard but try to calm down a little. it takes time but you should be fine.

When my skin is like that... there are a few things that I do.

If you have chamomile tea... make a very strong tincture (about 5 teabags instead of one), then put it in the fridge until it gets cold and spritz your face with it all day long... as much as you can.

Another thing that works wonders on red, peely or irritated skin is colloidal oatmeal. I use the Aveeno bath packets and make a paste. When you sit in the bathtub with it, the steam keeps the oatmeal mask moist. When you rinse it off 30 minutes later, your skin is like a babies. You can mix it with a little manuka honey too... or regular honey if that's more convenient. If you have regular oatmeal... you can try grinding it up and making a paste from that, too.

Also, the juice from a fresh cucumber is very soothing. If you have any of these things around the house... they can help a lot.

Peace.

Wisky: PLEASE DO NOT PEEL OF YOUR SKIN! It should come off by itself when ready. Be very, very careful.

Applying Aloe Vera and Vaseline should be fine.

i had patches yesterday.. today i put on some gel and my skin became like a crust! it was soo weird.. it peeled off as i rubbed the gel into my skin. after this experince I will NEVER use that gel again.. i wouldnt recommend this to any1 who works or is a panic freak.. i probably dont even have a job to return to... hopefully tomorrow morning i will be alot happier.. please wish me luck and a prayer.. i need one!

p.s my skin doesnt feel as hard as it did today.. i had to keep putting baby lotion on it every 20min. it was a crazy day..maybe with a good ending..

Thats a very strong reaction, I use both the mini-peel and the Intense Gel and have never had any negative reaction but I would imagine that the symptoms you are showing are as a result of the glycolic rather than with the intense gel which I find very soothing when used after the mini-peel.

Its a real shame you have that reaction to the product, just another illustration that not all products work for all people I suppose.

Good luck with the search for something that works for you.

This information is from the Puredeming site:

Do not [-X use the Intense Gel on the same day as you use the Intense Mini-Peel, Unless you use it BEFORE using the Intense Mini-Peel (i.e. not after on the same day).

Directions: All of our PureDeming products come with an instructional pamphlet. Please ensure you follow these directions for optimal results and safety and always use common sense: Apply a small amount/thin film (1/5 - 1/10 of the bottle) to a clean and dry face. Only a small amount is needed - more is not better. Avoid mucus membranes and around the eyes. Leave on for between 4 - 7 minutes. Do not leave on face longer than 7 minutes : to do so will not increase the benefits to the skin of this application, but instead may lead to peeling.

Be careful using baby lotion on your face, could lead to breakouts.

I have decided to give SONYA DAKAR a try. She saved my face last time.. Maybe it will help again..I would deff. recommend her products to any of you..a little pricey but i think its better off then buying the intense gel crap... maybe the lemon extracts will help my face.. [-o<

Try honey as a face mask.It will help to get rid of redness and it is a great moisturiser.
