Hi all --
I'm new here and have a question. I recently mixed salicylic acid with water and applied it to my arms and legs because I wanted to exfoliate them. The salicylic acid didn't mix very well with the water, and the application process was messy; when the mixture dried on my skin, it was white and flaked off very easily. I'm concerned that it may not have effectively exfoliated my skin as well as if it had not flaked off and instead if it had stayed on the skin. Any feedback on this and/or suggestions regarding remedies so that the "peel" won't flake off would be greatly appreciated.
