    Please let me know how your peel goes for you.

    @gymrat just to confirm unlike other peels were you want to keep your skin moisterized with the TCA you just want to use Neosporin until the pink is gone. What then after? Back to normal skin routin?
    All peels I do the same, use neosporin if needed and minimal moisturizing enough to where I am comfortable, to eat, drink, and smile. A drop or two of jojoba oil etc is about all I would use too much moisture will not allow your peel to peel effectively. So don't drowned your skin with moisture.

    You have to find that happy medium as you don't want your skin to be itchy and irritated either. You will know if need a drop or two of moisture........

    After your skin is back to its natural state then go back to your original routine.

    @annaamia polysporin in the UK, is equivalent to neosporin

    @gymrat iv checked out polysporin and again can't get it anything antibiotic has strict rules over here.
    I'm thinking i might have to order on eBay and have it shipped from the USA.
    I did find something called "Brulidine Cream" an antiseptic and antibacterial cream.would that be any good?if not I'll be shipping from US I suppose

    @annaamia £16 in custom charges!! That's just crazy!! I'm in the same boat with u with, but with shipping, not nearly as bad, but having a hard time paying $7 in shipping for a sample bottle. That's pretty pricey to me.

    Hopefully you will be able to find an antibiotic cream somewhere online that doesn't have such a pricey shipping/custom cost.

    @annaamia found this place online, maybe check it out. I have never bought or heard of them before, have you @gymrat ?

    @MrsBurney2015 yes express chemist are good (iv bought from them before) but all only antiseptic and antibacterial creams available
    Apparently if you buy a item over £14( including shipping I think) you get slapped with a custom charge and have to pay it before they send it on!stupid thing is iv bought things from the US before which were more than £14 and not got charged so who knows!

    Btw my TCA came today!12% and 15% in sample sizes.
