First, cleanse the face with a gentle, effective cleanser such as Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel.
Step 1. Apply a Step 1 Activator Pad over the entire face, avoiding eye area, lips and any area of sensitivity. Then discard pad. Carefully monitor the skin’s response to the Peel by observing any redness or discomfort, including stinging, burning, itching, tightness, tingling and peeling.
Step 2. Apply a Step 2 Neutralizer Pad to the face after 10 minutes, or sooner if you experience bothersome redness or discomfort. Apply over entire face (avoiding eyes and lips), and then rinse the face thoroughly with water.
You may leave the (Step 1) Activator Solution on your skin for up to, or as long as 10 minutes, and no longer than 10 minutes. Some people may experience some bothersome dryness or stinging during the 10 minute time frame the activator solution in on their face. For those skin types we suggest applying the (Step 2) Neutralizer Solution earlier than 10 minutes, or as soon as you experience the stinging sensation if you find it bothersome. As with all Hydroxy Acid peels, a slight tingling sensation is expected, but if this sensation is too much, we recommend neutralizing the peel sooner than the total 10 minute time.
Follow with a moisturizer such as Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex.
