Pre-peel treatment

1. Stop the use of masks, scrubs, exfoliating agents, self-tanners, products containing AHA, BHA, Vitamin A (Retinol), or any other product that can potentially irritate your skin for 48 hours before applying the peel. 2. Do not shave or wax facial hair for 48 hours before applying the peel. 3. Avoid sun exposure and tanning for 1 week prior to applying the peel.

Patch test for first-time users

1. Test a small spot under your chin before applying the solution to your entire face to ensure that you have no allergic reaction to the peel. 2. Leave the peel on for no more than 30 seconds. 3. Remove the peel by cleansing the area with water. 4. Wait 24 hours, monitoring skin for redness or irritation.

Peel procedure

1. Complete patch test; see previous section. 2. Remove makeup and thoroughly cleanse face. Pat dry. 3. Apply the glycolic acid solution to a cotton pad or swab and apply to the face starting with the forehead, working downward to the cheeks and chin. Apply to less-sensitive areas first, starting with forehead, cheeks, and chin, then to the nose and neck. Avoid contact with the eye area, ears and lips. Prior to applying the peel, you may apply petroleum jelly to areas not to be touched by the acid, such as the eyebrow, eye, nostril, and lip areas.

First-time users

Once the peel is applied to the entire face, leave the product on for no longer than 30 seconds. This important step ensures the skin can tolerate the acid peel before increasing its duration in the next application. The longer the peel is left on, the deeper it penetrates and the longer the recovery time. 4. Once the peel is applied, watch skin as well as the clock. When skin is turning pink it is time to neutralize the acid peel with water. 5. DO NOT leave the peel on skin for more than 8 minutes. 6. Stop the peel by thoroughly rinsing skin with cool water. 7. Gently pat skin dry with a soft towel. 8. Moisturize the skin with a generous amount of YEOUTH Day/Night Cream or YEOUTH L-22 Moisturizer.

Post-peel treatment

1. Do not exercise or induce sweat for 2 hours after applying the peel. 2. Do not use exfoliating scrubs for 3-5 days after applying the peel. 3. Do not rub, pick or scratch skin after applying the peel. This can cause irritation. 4. Do not use Retinol (Vitamin A) products for 48 hours after applying the peel. 5. Apply YEOUTH Day/ Night Cream or YEOUTH L-22 Moisturizer twice daily. 6. Use YEOUTH Balancing Facial Toner and any YEOUTH Hyaluronic Acid serum following the peel. 7. Do not wear foundation for 12 hours after applying the peel. 8. Always wear a minimum SPF 15 sunscreen to protect the skin during the day. 9. Avoid the sun for 48 hours after the peel.

Time between treatments

Wait at least 3 weeks before applying another peel, then apply peel once every 3-4 weeks as maintenance to attain maximum results. Monitor skin during all treatments and discontinue use if redness or burning ensues.
