Hi, 40% lactic acid is very mild, so I wouldn't worry about anything. If you are a man you probably should not shave the day you use it, (you can once you get used to it) and definitely don't use any skin products like Retin-a or benzoyl peroxide. Use it for about 3 minutes at first and work your way up if you like – no more than 10 minutes.

How to use:

Prep your skin with our pH prep solution (included).

Allow it to dry completely.

Apply Lactic Acid serum to skin for 3-7 minutes.

Rinse off with soap and water.

Rebalance with pH prep solution.

Dry skin completely.

Some pinkness of the skin may be noticeable post-peel or

a warm feeling to the skin. This is normal.

Use sunscreen or a makeup with SPF factor post-peel.

Recommended usage: once or twice a week.

Just use your finger to apply it. Do the whole face, except for your eyes, jeje wink.gif
