Day 3. I have finally began peeling today and of course, it was on my jaw.

That's basically where the only peeling is right now. Everywhere else, though it may not look it due to the aquaphor on my face keeping my skin moist, is tough, leathery, and tight. The new skin looks glorious, though! It's right by my lips, on the chin. The dark parts on my jaw make it easier to see.

Day five. I had a LOT of peeling yesterday (Day 4). I mean peeling so intense, my face literally looked to be falling apart. It was freaking out co-workers and customers at my job, haha!

Now it's day five and the majority of my skin has peeling. My new skin looks fantastic! There's a couple of spots on my face where I think the skin peeled too early but I expect those parts to heal up and pigment evenly with quickness. All I have left to peel is my forehead and my lower jaw.

I'll post pictures for Day 5.

I don't know if doing 3 layers made me peel faster or the fact that I use Vitamin C daily played a role (I did not use vitamin c while my skin was healing and flaking. Besides, ouch!) but I peeled surprisingly fast this round, something I expect to finish in about 7-8 days, not 3-5!

I also noticed that the skin that peeled this round was a bit thicker than what I'm used to peeling. I guess three layers of the 12.5 solution made this a medium peel and not a light peel which I'm perfectly fine with. The benefits are obvious and even my co-workers now are flocking to me asking about getting peels done. Hell, even my manager hit me up asking me some questions. I'm not even fully peeled yet!

I'll do another TCA peel in about six months. Until then, I'll resume my regular schedule of glycolic in a month.

Let's see.. what else.. oh yeah, because I did three layers, my skin was CRAZY tight this round. I mean TIGHT. Like it honestly felt like I was wearing a mask. I've never felt that affected from a 1 or 2 layer peel. My skin was so tight, I couldn't even open my damn mouth as wide as I usually do when eating! Even blinking took a little more effort. If I smiled, not only did I look creepy because I couldn't fully smile, but it caused a HUGE array of tight wrinkles on my entire face so my ass looked like the Grinch.

On Day 3, I decided to keep my skin moist all the time at home so I bought some Aquaphor and I think this has also played a role in my skin peeling earlier than usual because Aquaphor creates a barrier where the skin can stay moist and protected for optimal healing. So I'd steam my face, put some hyaluronic acid (very soothing), moisturize with cetaphil, place some Burt's Bees Healing Serum on my face, and then seal it in with a layer of Aquaphor. My skin would be moist all day at home since Aquaphor takes ages to absorb and with all the nutrients and moisture I already gave it underneath, I think it accelerates the healing.

I'm back to using Vitamin C on my face (which now stings more thanks to increased sensitivity) for the sake of reversing any sun damage that might have occurred if my sunblock failed and I think I'll continue doing the aquaphor nutrient "masks" for about a week until I stop and resume normal skincare at home.

My skin is PERFECTION!!

This peel has been such a major success. I have a couple of spots left to fully peel but they're taking their time and they're so hard to see, I honestly don't even mind them. ^_^


Oddly, I now look like a kid without makeup. Its not that I looked old but you know that poreless appearance kids have? Let's just say I've regained that...

Any suggestion for getting rid of Hyperpigmentation? I am a newbie with peels.

At the moment I use a 5% GA & LA toner daily for exfoliation.
I want my skin to be even and keep spots, whitehead at bay and minimize pores.

Midna, which TCA peel did you use?
It took 8 days to peel and see results?

Hey hun! I used the TCA peel at a percentage of 12.5%. If you're new to the tca, I strongly recommend playing it safe and sticking to one layer.

I only did three because I've used the TCA peel before.
