Question about lactic acid peels

OK, so I ordered lactic acid peel kit from MUAC and have done 2 treatments so far, all went fine.

Trouble is, I can see that the PH prep treatment lotion (which is water, witchhazel, glycolic acid and lactic acid) that you apply before and after the lactic acid, is not going to last long! It's a tiny 1 oz bottle, but you need to use quite a lot and then with the two applications, I'm going to be running out of that before I finish the lactic acid treatments.

I'm planning on doing peels once or twice a week for 6-8 weeks as recommended by MUAC.

Question is: is it essential to use the prep lotion before and after each time? I don't want to have to order more prep lotion, as the shipping to UK is expensive.

Could I just use diluted witchhazel without the acids in, if I run out? Or an alternative that I can buy in a chemist?
