Peels and nose skin

First time I attempted any sort of peel, and was curious, I know you are supposed to keep it away from your eye area, but what about your nose?

I did my 2nd application of Avon Anew 2 step facial peel (10% glycolic acid) and it seems to be working everywhere else, but my nose is starting to break out with a couple of small whiteheads.

I don't know if this was just a sensitivity of mine, a coincidence, or something I'm not supposed to do. Any ideas? Maybe I should keep the anew off my nose and stick to just vinegar there, that was working previously without any issues.

I put a small amount of lactic acid on my nose when I do a peel. I don't know why you have broken out from it on your nose, it could be that you are purging or it could be a sensitivity. When in doubt, you might consider avoiding putting the peel on that area or do a patch test.
