It's week two and I just did my second lactic acid peel session. It has been exactly a week since my first lactic acid peel. 

Second peel: I took the same steps, I took in the previous week. I used the peel at a 40% concentration and I started my 5 minute time-watch the second I started applying the peel. I left the peel on for the full 5 minutes, but oh man, I was tempted to rinse it off after 1! I didn't get around to do my lip peel, because while I was neutralizing my face peel, I swiped some of the baking soda solution on my lips and I believe that makes the peel inactive. It's been about 10 minutes now and my skin still has a slight stinging feeling all over. My skin feels a little sensitive and dry, but nothing I'm concerned over. I'm trying to not touch my face for the rest of the night. I'll be heading to bed soon, but before that I think I'll lather some more avacado oil on my face.

I'm thinking of incoporating a diy 10%vitamin c/5% lactic acid face serum. If I do add this into my routine, I will do it after at-least 24 hours. 


Do an ACID PEEL on those spotty ass cheeks of yours.

What?

This appears to be a White Supremist Troll.  He also posted the same thing on "Journey to better skin care"    I look up some older post from this person and there are Hitler-like pics and similar things.  I tried reporting it, but not sure if it went through.

Ah, I see! Noted. Thank you for letting me know. It's ironic how he/she/it is racist, but is still on website for black women. Obsession with black people is real..

Week 4!


Last sessions progress: My complexion appeared slightly brighter and I had insanely soft skin. I started wearing makeup and one of the problems I used to have was the fact that my forehead had dark discoloration which would peak through my foundation. Now my foundation blends a lot better, especially on my forehead. 

Session: This is my third session. It's supposed to be my fourth and on a monday, but I kept putting it off last week, so i ended up not getting around to do it. I planned to do it on monday, but I put it off again, so I ended up doing it today, which is Wednesday. 
Peel details: 55% Lactic acid peel. I left it on for 7 minutes. I started by applying it to my forehead and once I was done with that I started the timer and went over my entire face. Surprisingly enough it didn't burn as bad as the 40%! It still burned and my face felt hot, but it felt a lot better than the 40% strength. I still recommend starting at 40%. I cleansed with my face wash and primed with rubbing alcohol and water before my peel and I rinsed it with water and a baking soda-water mix to neutralize. Lastly, I moisturized with avacado oil.

Week 5!

Last sessions progress: After doing my peel and writing my peel last week my face got itchy, so I made the BAD decision of lightly scratching around my face and I immediately ended up with rash outbreaks all over my face. Now, I know that when doing chemical peels that your skin may ''purge'' and break out into a rash and I think that that had also played a part in it, but I'm sure that if I resisted the temptation of itching, I would have ended up with a lot less rash.

The rash was active for three days, starting on the evening I applied the peel, till two days afterwards. The rash was mostly around the sides of my cheeks and my forehead. By day 4/5 my rash had cleared. As far as peeling, along day 3/4 I noticed some very, very minimal flaking on my chin, but that was about it for any peeling.

My skin didn't feel as amazing or look as good as it did in the previous weeks, but I didn't mind. I naturally have great skin, so as long as I don't end up with something worse than what I begun, I'm fine.

This weeks session: This is my fourth session
Peel concentration: I applied a 65% concentration. I was very anxious because it's a high concentration and my face is one of my most precious possessions! I am very curious about this concentration. When I was reading around, I read that a lot of people had great results with this concentration when it came to hyper-pigmentation. I think I'll stick to this concentration.
Time: I left it on for 1 minute and 30 minutes. I applied it on my forehead and started the stopwatch. I initially wanted to keep it on for 2-3 minutes, but I had also applied it around my eyes with a small cotton and it burned like hell, so instead of trying to stick it out, I listened to my skin and rinsed it off. It's very important to listen to your skin and let your skin guide you! After I rinsed it off and neutralized I noticed that my skin looked very pale. This is not something I experienced I previously experienced. I covered my face with avacado oil and my face looks spotless, as if I don't even have pores!

Week 6!

Last session progress: 

Immediately after the peel: My skin looked incredibly smooth. I looked in the mirror and it was as if I was staring at a clear canvas. I still had some bumps here and there but the texture of my skin itself was drastically improved

The day after: My skin felt slightly tighter throughout the entire day, but the feeling was faded by the ended of the day. In the days after my skin looked lovely with a beautiful slight glow all over. Again, I have quite great skin naturally. Hyper pigmentation is my main flaw. 

Week: This is my fifth peel 
Peel concentration: 65% Lactic Acid peel
Time: 6 minutes in total. I started with a light layer and re-applied another layer after 4 minutes.
Progress: I applied the peel, neutralized and moisturized with avocado oil. My skin continued to feel uncomfortable for about 20 minutes after I neutralized and moisturized.

Mini update
It's the second day today. My skin has been quite itchy. I started out with a slight itching sensation in the morning, that progressively turned into a medium sensation, by night. It's mostly on my forehead and cheeks. I'm refraining from scratching the areas, because that will likely cause a break out. Aside from the itchy feeling, I haven't seen any additional changes.

Second day post peel. I woke up to some minor flakings here and there. I lightly scrubbed my skin in the evening with a vitamin c scrub and I re-moisturized with avacado oil. My skin feels incredibly smooth. My forehead still has a slight itching sensation. When I lightly scratch my forehead, I can see more flakes form in certain area's, but I'm restraining from doing that. Scratching recently peeled skin can cause a break out or even worse, more hyper-pigmentation.

Week 7!

Last weeks progression: Aside from the minor peeling on the first, second and day after I haven't experienced or noticed any additional changes. Soft skin and slightly brighter appearance than what I started with. I must have skin of steel! I read people burning their skin and peeling sheets, but all I got was some minor flaking.

Week: This is my 6th peel

Peel concentration: 65%

Time: 7-8 minutes.

Layers: 3 layers. I put the applied it on my forehead and then started the timer and went through my whole entire face. When the timer was at 5 minutes I applied my second layer and on 2 minutes I applied my third and final layer. On the final layer is when I also applied it around my eyes and on my lips

Steps: This time I rinsed my peel without neutralizing. I read that someone did this overnight and woke up to peeling skin the next day. I'm not sure if I'll do this overnight yet, since this is the first time I'm attempting something like this. I may rinse it after a few hours. 

Additional: I noticed that the peel hurts a lot less than when I first began at 40%

EDIT: As I said, I rinsed the peel, but this time I didn't neutralize it after the 8 minutes. I initially wanted to keep it on for several hours, but after about 20 minutes, I felt my skin and my temple area kind of felt raw so I immediately rinsed and neutralized at-least three times! I've slathered my face with avocado oil and now I'm just sitting here. I hope I didn't go too overboard. Listening to your skin is very, very important. Beauty isn't pain when it comes to this. You can seriously burn yourself I'll keep you guys updated

I just noticed all my typo's. Lawdness.

Anyways, it's the first day after the peel. My skin is looking extremely clear and smooth. The temple area that felt a little raw to touch, yesterday has a few dark scabs. It's nothing too noticeable or extreme. I hope they'll peel and fade away in the course of the week.
