Lactic acid peel

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 40percent lactic acid peel and im excited to try it.

I just wanted to know if it is ok to cleanse my face with a salicylic acid cleanser (clean and clear) before i apply the lactic acid or should i use a milder cleanser to wash before applying the acid.

Also is it ok to apply the acid with just your fingers?

I use a mild cleanser (Green Tea/Pomegranate Cleanser from MUAC) before doing lactic acid peels. Since the 40% is so mild it may not matter very much, but best to be safe and not use the SA cleanser. I apply the acid with cotton squares, and wouldn't use my hands although I doubt the 40% will do much to your hands anyway.
