Just when I thought my progress was slowing down, and did not want postings to be redundant...My face is flaking all over.
I have feelings of ambivalence .   Visually knowing that something is happening is a perk, but having the continuous peach fuzz is/can be annoying.
Moisturizer tempers it, but it becomes visible when I apply Makeup.

I am now at the point in my regimen that progress is going to be slower.   The older dead skin cells have been removed. The scars that are left on my body, and my elbows is in its initial stages of flaking. Not expecting miracles because they have been there for >20 yrs. Hope it does not take that long for them to be completely gone, if that's even possible.
My neck will always be, 'a pain in the neck'
Sunspots on my face are lightening. This morning I noticed that they are smaller. The outer aspects are cleared , so it will be a work in progress. Chipping away at them little by little.
I will continue with this regimen, and post if I try something new or see drastic changed....Good or bad.
I have kept my regimen/product use simple, something I can use long term and still be cost effective.

Tolerated the Burn Out on my face today, but not so much on my neck. I will not wash it off though unless it becomes unbearable.

Concerned about breakouts on my face because I started Master Cleanse today, and it may have a purging effect. Hopefully the Retin-A will deter that.

I look for it, yet it still surprises me to see how much dead skin cell are released when I use Sea Salt Soap .

Tolerated KSS on my face for 5 minutes this morning (unintentional).
Moisturizer with SPF 30 on my face is unaffected. When I felt discomfort from sunscreen, I was using 'Burn Out'.   I will try it again tomorrow now that my face has had a couple of days to recover.

Upper arms still flaking

So my upper arms still has that 'peach fuzz' appearance. I am happy because it's the most encouraging response I've had since starting this journey .

Used moisturizer with SPF 30 this morning on my face, and tolerated it well.

Should do a SSB this weekend, but the possibility of that happening is . It's a weekend for Henna. Will continue with SSS though.

While there were no overt signs of the effect of double dosing RA last night or this morning, I certainly felt stinging when I applied sunscreen .    I tried to tolerate it for a few minutes, but decided to wash it off rather than have it create something awful on my face. Not worth it.   Hopefully it would be better tomorrow.

Finally, I am seeing actual flaking on my upper, outer arms . I almost gave up hope of it improving. That crazy mixture did it !! Would not dare put it on my face though .

No harm done. I just did not use KSS on my face for the usual 3 mins this morning, but I did wash with it.
Neck is no longer sensitive, and thankfully, no PIH !! Just to be certain it's not lurking just beneath my skins surface, I will continue to apply Hydrocortisone for my peace of mind

I feel so silly because I really goofed earlier. After applying RA Gel to my face the next step was to apply HQ, but I accidentally applied RA Cream over the Gel instead without paying attention.
   I waited some time to see if anything felt 'off', but it didn't, so I continued with the HQ.
I am not overly concerned because 0.05% does not seem to have much effect on my face, but luckily it was not something else.

After washing off layers of Hydrocortisone from my neck,   it does not appear to be too bad.   It appears as a 2-inch continuum of tiny red dots along the left Clavicle. Very surface.

Used LA lotion this p.m even though it's only 24 hrs post peel. tolerating well.    
Off and on I add a mix of RA, HQ and LA lotion to my elbows, a scar on each knee, and a lower rt leg scar. These are the 'things' most bothersome to me, in addition to my upper outer arms .
Once these areas improve I can call this a wrap, and just move on to maintenance.
