How to Use Fruit Acid Gel Peel 15% or Lactic Acid 10% Gel Peel
NOTE: For the first time using our product, we strongly recommend leaving the peel on your skin for only 1 minute. This is so you can see how your skin reacts, especially for sensitive skin types. If there is no adverse reaction after 48 hours, use peel normally per the instructions below. Do not use in conjunction with other exfoliating treatments such as: professional facials, scrubs, lasers, prescription skin preparations, Retinoic acid, or other AHAs.
We recommend doing peels in the evening, which allows your skin to repair itself overnight and for any redness to subside.
Step 1: Cleanse skin with our Rose Pre Peel Cleanser or your favorite cleanser. Follow with an alcohol-based toner or rubbing alcohol (this removes any last traces of oil and makeup, allowing the peel to penetrate the upper layers of skin and do its job). But if you don’t have a toner handy, it’s ok – it’ll still work.
Step 2: Apply peel using finger tips. 1 to 1.5 droppers full should cover your face. Avoid eye area.
OPTIONAL As you become used to using this products and are comfortable with its effects on your skin, you may allow the first layer to dry (1-3 minutes) and apply a second layer of gel for increased exfoliation.
Step 3: Let peel sit for 1-3 minutes. Rinse with plenty of cool water. You may want to lightly cleanse skin with your favorite gentle cleanser to remove any last traces of the peel, but it’s not required.
Step 4: Pat gently dry, apply Restore Hyaluronic Moisturizing Cream.
Step 5: Use sunscreen daily while using this product.
Recommended for use once per week.
Skin will be smoother and brighter after first application. After 4-6 weeks skin will have improved tone, diminished fine lines and pigmentation, scars will be less noticeable.
NOTE: Most people will not have visible sheets of skin peeling off (like after a sunburn), but merely experience redness and tingling/burning. It does not mean it didn’t “work”, that is normal.
