Hi ladies, I have had one chemical peel before at the salon, but didn't peel. I ordered the home version from makeup artists. I did a very light one layer the first time. Didn't do anything. So yesterday I did 2 full layers. It was really stingy! The most sensitive area was the orbital bone area. Had to fan my face the whole time! It frosted on my inner cheeks next to my nose. My main concern is trying to smooth acne scarring and age spots, and make my pores appear smaller. I also have dry flaky skin to begin with, so I am hoping doing a peel will improve that problem. My face is kind-of shiny today. I've noticed some darker brown pigmentation areas on my upper cheeks next to my eyes today. You can see in the pictures. Just wondering from your past experiences how much you think I may peel if at all? Was this the appropriate peel for me or would you recommend something else? Any input is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
I'm sure you will definitely peel with two layers. Peeling or not though, it is still working! You probably need to go to a higher percentage to actually see changes in your acne scarring though. But having many lighter peels will certainly go a long way to a beautiful skin tone and will help with age spots.
When was the first peel you did? I would give it a good month now before you do it again, just to let the skin heal completely.
