How to avoid burning skin – The depth of the peel is controlled by contact time, frequency, pH, and layers of application. Upon applying the peel again try adjusting the application time and/or layers of application in order to avoid irritation of the skin or a burn. Our peels have an adjusted pH that is safer for your skin than other unbuffered peels. The gel form is also safer for the skin and will not penetrate like most liquid solutions sold. Also it is important to rinse your skin thoroughly after applying a peel. This product can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. If it is your first time applying a peel it may be a good idea to apply the peel for 30 seconds, no longer than 1 minute and immediately wash off with cool water for 1-2 minutes.
