I just bought a 40% 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?

To be honest, I always exfoliate manually (with a soft brush) before I do a peel...but I'm quite experienced with peels and know it doesn't damage me.

Have you worked your way up to 40% concentrations?Have you received peels from a professional?

You usually start off with a lower percentage and work your way up to avoid damage.

I've never received a lactic peel in this concentration so I'm not sure how it compares to other acids with the same percentage.
