Lactic Acid Peel Question

Hi, I'm new to the Boards. Hello all.

I Just got my 40% Lactic Acid peel from makeupartistchoice.com today

and I was wondering when they mean to wash it off with soap and water,

can I wash it off with my Cetaphil gentle Face cleanser and water instead?

Also since this is my first time ever using a peel how long do you guys think I should leave it on for?

Any advice and suggestion is greatly appreciated

thank you

Hi, your regular cleanser is fine. You should start out with 2-3 minutes. Personally, I neutralize the acid then I wash my face. Some directions might reverse that.

Just wanted to add that 2 to 3 minutes is about right, but if you find that your face is burning too much or your skin is sensitive, start with 1 minute. Better to underdo it than overdo it.

And oldguy: Your picture IS CRACKING ME UP!!! LMAO lol.gif
