to Use the 30% Glycolic Acid Peel
NOTE: You will NOT see dramatic results after just one or two applications.
The exfoliation process takes at least 6 - 10 peels for skin
issues to start to resolve themselves. Please have patience!
Preparing the Area:
Cleanse and DRY the area to be exfoliated. DO NOT use a soap-based
product. Soap is an alkali and will neutralize the acid. We
recommend using the 30Glycolic Freshener and Cleanser. If
you choose to use a different cleanser, be sure it is pH balanced
to the acidic side. Cetaphil is a good alternative to soap.
You can exfoliate your arms, elbows, legs, neck, back, hands
& feet as well as your face.
Pour a liberal amount of the pH Balanced Prepping Solution
onto a cotton ball, your hand, or a small dish, and apply it with the cotton ball,
your fingertips, or a fan brush to the area you wish to exfoliate.
Let the area dry completely.
Before applying the Exfoliator, perform a “patch
test” on a dime-sized area of the inside of your arm. As with any product, there is the chance that you may be highly
sensitive to the glycolic acid. If you are highly sensitive, you will experience burning and immediate
redness. Immediately neutralize the area with soap and do not continue with the process.
Applying the Peel:
not use this product more than once a week.
Pour a liberal amount of the 30% Glycolic Acid Chemical Peel
onto a cotton ball, your hand, or a dish. Apply a “not thin, not thick”
coating of the acid peel onto the area to be exfoliated.
Keep the Exfoliator at least a quarter inch away from
b. Do not apply to irritated, sensitive skin or open wounds.
c. If the product is applied to a skin abrasion or small cut
and discomfort occurs, apply a small amount of liquid soap
directly to the affected area to neutralize the Exfoliator.
d. Do not apply the Exfoliator to skin that has been
waxed within 24 hours.
e. Do not apply the Exfoliator to skin that has been
shaved within 24 hours.
Leave on for no more than 2-3 minutes. A slight stinging sensation may
occur. This is normal as it means that the acid is working.
Remove the Exfoliator with slightly soapy, lukewarm
water to neutralize the glycolic acid.
Gently pat your face with a towel to dry it.
NOTE: During the first few weeks of exfoliation, there is
a risk of increased breakouts. Blemishes are not only on the
surface of your skin, but beneath it. As you exfoliate away
dead skin cells and clogged pores, those hidden blemishes
are flushed to the surface. Continued exfoliation removes
those now revealed blemishes, uncovering the healthy skin
Using a cotton ball, apply Freshener or pH Balanced Prepping
Solution to the area that has been exfoliated. This will remove
excess skin cells that have been loosened by the Exfoliator.
Apply moisturizer to the area(s) you have exfoliated. We recommend
our deep moisturizing Chiffon Cream or Royal Chiffon Cream.
Do NOT apply any products or moisturizers (i.e. Alpha Balance
Moisturizer) containing alpha hydroxy acids for 24 hours after
applying the Exfoliator. Use of too many layers of glycolic
acid may cause skin irritation.
Slight reddening of the skin may occur for a limited period
of time, especially in people with sensitive skin. You may
not experience peeling.
Expose your face to the sun for 24 hours after applying the
b. Wax the skin for 24 hours after applying the Exfoliator.
c. Shave directly after application of the Exfoliator.
