Please see my updated chemical peel tips, I have hyperpigmentation so I am doing "spot" treatment peels where you apply to specific areas. Also I have learned through trail and error that keeping the skin moist after the peels and constantly wetting the skin can accelerate the peeling process.

You will notice CAPS below, this was pasted from my own notes so I am not shouting.

*** Please know, these are my tips, please do not apply over 12% TCA peel to skin without caution. I did and I found it did not work as well as lower strength peels applied in multiple layers.

*** Do not apply a peel if you do not have at least 2 days available at home to make this successful. You need to be able to constantly wet the skin via clean water, not pool or beach water. You need to stay home at least 2 days not the entire day but part of the day to be able to wet your skin at least 5 times.

** The tips below are my steps that I created for myself when I realized that some peels came out better than others. So I started to write down, why..what did I do differently. When I have skipped steps or did not wet the skin as much it took much longer to peel which made me not be able to leave the house.

What you will need before you start your peel - peel, q tips, aquaphor or store brand of aquaphor. You are patting a small amount in the skin not too much.

Where do I get my peels - platinumskincare..dot..com


DO YOUR PEEL ON A DAY THAT YOU KNOW YOU WILL BE HOME ON THE NEXT DAY. For example - FRIDAY PEEL THEN HOME ON SATURDAY and Sunday. The days are not specific for Fridays but I am using the weekend as example days so you can understand. I can be any two-three days in a row.

What days can I go out after the peel?
Friday (2 hours after peel - with no makeup, to movies, club, dinner, NO GYM - you could even go to work. Your skin will look normal just no makeup and wait until redness goes away.

Saturday (after first shower before the peeling starts, no gym, don't want sweat toxins on skin) Running to store, drop off kids, if your skin requires NO MAKKEUP.

Sunday - stay home - peeling in full effect

How to apply peel:
•     WASH FACE FIRST, LET IT DRY - do not apply any type of cream, lotion, etc.
o     USE Q TIP, LET SATURATE WITH PEEL LIQUID, SPOT TREAT (IF you are doing for hyper. if not then wipe over your entire face in a windshield wiper motion)
o     WATCH FOR FROSTING
o     WAIT 10 MINUTES BETWEEN APPLICATION IF APPLYING 2ND/3RD LAYERS
o     HAVE YOUR FAN READY AND PLUGGED IN, YOUR FACE MAY START TO FEEL WARM AND THE COOL BREEZE, MAKES IT BEARABLE.

•     AFTER FROSTING, RINSE OFF WITH WATER
I wait about 5 minutes after rinsing to APPLY VIA PATTING INTO SKIN, A SMALL AMOUNT OF EMU OIL, AQUAPHOR. PAT INTO SKIN DO NOT RUB....
DO NOT APPLY RETIN A, SKIN PRODUCTS, MAKEUP, TONIGHT.

You can leave the house in say 1 hour after the redness tones done to go to the movies, or something light,out to eat...NO GYM...wear you will sweat, no dancing where you might sweat.... do not apply any kind of makeup to the skin, lipstick yes, even eye shadow if you must..but no cream, foundation, MAC finish powder, mineralized skinfinish, BB or CC Creams (NOTHING)

NEXT DAY – SATURDAY
I get up and take shower, normal cleaning body shower then every 2 HOURS - 7:30, 9:30, 11:30, 1:30, 3:30 go back in the shower to get your face wet. You only need to stay in the shower for like 5-10 minutes, not cold water not super HOT, just warm water to your comfort.

Let the shower head run down on your face, the constant water speeds up the peeling process. TO be effective, the shower water falling down on your skin is more EFFECTIVE then just washing your face in the sink. I don't know why but it was for me. I think it is the angle of the water flow and I can confirm 1000% that When I did not do this step, the peel process was longer.

**TIP, I set an alarm to go off every 2-3 hours to remind me and I would also write down the times and check them off upon completion so I knew which times I went in the shower.

After the first shower where I used soap to bath, the remaining shower are just standing in the shower and letting the water run on your face for say 5 minutes, you don't need to keep using different towels to dry off, after each shower put towel over tub rail.

AFTER EACH SHOWER LET SKIN DRY FOR 15 MINUTES, THEN APPLY AQUAPHOR TO KEEP SKIN MOIST (small amount, and pat in skin - you are not rubbing the skin)

AT NIGHT before bed - WASH FACE (with mild soap to remove aquaphor) WAIT AT LEAST half an hour APPLY RETIN A – if you have but USE .05 gel NOT THE STRONG RETIN A 0.1 retin A. If you don't have Retin A apply NOTHING AT ALL.

SECOND DAY – SUNDAY – DO SAME STEPS AS ABOVE

MONDAY - THIRD DAY – WAKE UP AND TAKE YOUR NORMAL SHOWER, LET THE WATER RUN ON YOUR SKIN. THE PEEL SHOULD BE DONE, you might see some peeling in small areas. do not peel the skin.

If skin is peeling pat in lotion, I try and be off on the Monday after my peel. But you don't have too.

Monday night - apply some kind of fade cream on face. Sometimes after a peel the skin will darken in that spot (not much) but it can happen so to counteract, I put on a fade cream in the area where it peeled for at least 4 nights.

Do it while you have no where to go because it will be peeling like crazy.

Girl I don't know what I was thinking. I have light spots all on my cheeks. I don't even know what to do. I may have to apply it all over but it stings right now sonce the skin is peeling so I will wait. I ended up doing a couple of layers on each dot. BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!

why did you apply on some spots? you will have different skin tones. didn't you see the pics of the people who used the peel? it peels off to a lighter shade.

are you applying every day or are you going to do only a couple layers?

I don't have dark spots but I got some hyperpigmentation when doing electrolysis; it is already healing, but I want to do a peel. I got Green peeeling oil on ebay and will be trying it after school ends.

There is a very helpful thread about it on skin care talk

http://www.skincaretalk.com/t/41960/green-peeling-oil-101

it is supposedly milder than the TCA peel

Did a 2 layer peel tonight on my cheeks!

Amazingly, my cheeks had slight frosting on the first layer and that frosting grew even more pronounced on the second layer.

Decided to stick with only two so my skin can peel faster. 12.5% as always~

I used green peeling oil back in October. The results AFTEr were beautiful.......the process though was terrible. My face was irritated and sore from even a slight touch...then I went and gave myself PIh when I used Kojie. Never again.

I ordered a 40% lactic acid peel from amazon by IQ Naturals. The first time I used it I didn't really notice anything but my skin looked refreshed. I did one layer for 2 min. The second time was a week later. I did one layer on entire face and two on my dark spots. Let it sit for about 3 minutes. When I neutralized it my dark spots looked darker. But after three days the dark spots peeled off my marks were slightly lighter. I did it a third time a week later but this time my face felt tight afterward. I think that I am just going to do them once every two weeks or maybe 1 a month. But I do like the way my skin looks now. I was a little nervous about the dark spots peeling like that because I thought lactic acid didn't really cause peeling like that. I am tempted to try a low % TCA but I'm kind of scared.
