Don't order the full size, order the sample size, its PLENTY for you to get several peels out of. And, when in doubt about choosing send them an email, they have awesome customer service!! Also, if you order a peel be sure to use their promo code for 20% off.

    Read through all the peels, but one to consider is Fade Peel. TCA isn't for you, but plenty of other ones are, so please check them out! https://www.makeupartistschoice.com/...chemical-peels


    If you have it done professionally, the Derm office you choose would know which peel to apply for you. You have lots of Derms where you are, google some near by, read their reviews!! Make sure they have experience with your skin tone/complexion, if you are unsure, I will help you find one. PM me a few and I will check them out for you.
    Thanks a bunch

    That's not a burn......apply neosporin, and let the rest peel!!

    You might need to budge it a bit, get an oil, on damp skin, while in the shower get a bit of oil and gently rub on your elbow, gently lifting the skin that hasn't peeled. Once out of the shower, again, apply neosporin.
    Keep loose clothing on, so nothing tight where it would be rubbing/irritating your elbows.

    The thing with "peels", you have to let the peel work the way it was intended. Don't expect overnight changes by just applying a peel. Your skin isn't going to change nor peel overnight. It takes time......it takes patience, and.......more then just applying a peel one time.

    With each peel your skin improves that much more. You can't jump ahead of the game, and apply apply apply, without giving your skin the chance to heal. Also, you can't jump ahead and think ok let me use 50% strength and get faster results.....this never works out the way you think it will. Start with a low %, figure out how peels work, then move up in strength, with this, you are also gaining knowledge of how acids work.

    Your on track @Nadra keep up the good work, only thing I would do, is next go around, lower the strength. This was GA your using, not LA, so lower the strength. They work similar but GA is much more harsh then LA.

    So to remove dark circles & under eyes - Vitamin C serum that I will use separately from AA & KA correct?
    Face Lighter oils

    I also figured 6% is too much cause max is 4%
    so I’ll do
    KA - 4/5% (Oxidizes so use within 3-4 days)
    AA - 3-4%
    Niacinamide - 4-6%
    Layer my Coconut oil & Shea Butter instead of mixing in my DIY


    Can I get Carrot oil? Will it help with making me Yellow?
    Also the steps of mixing are off to me.

    I totally get now, I’ll be purchasing from MakingCosmetics or LotionCrafters.
    So when you are shopping for ingredients, lets say your on Lotioncrafters site, you bring up B3 (niacinamide) click on "formulation guide" there is your gold mine, this is where you will find all the info you need to use this ingredient. Usage rate is how much is recommended in a recipe, the other important thing is solubility. Does it work with water or oil base products.

    Take your time on those 2 sites researching the ingredient you want to use, get familiar with what you are looking at. It will help you understand once you start DIY your own stuff, just knowing how these ingredients work. And if all else fails, come back and ask questions. If its DIY related, post on the DIY forum, so we can keep the flow of the forum going and keep important info in one place But please....., if you are unsure about an ingredient or just need to ask questions, don't hesitate to ask!! Plenty of us here to help you!!

    Have you tried using LA lotion on your feet? Apply it 1-2 times a day, and wrap your feet with socks as often as you can. As for the spider veins, compression!! Whether its compression socks or compression hose, this will help a TON!! especially if you spend a lot of time on your feet, compression will help you.
    @gymrat Thanks a lot boo.

    Thank you so much I’ll start a new thread there after I soak up the new information.

    Does Vitamin E & Carrot Oil hemp with being Yellow?
    I read that AA & KA makes you pale - whitish kind of light, I personally prefer the yellow-light caramel colour (e.g Rihanna/Sanaa Lathan and not Beyonce/Nicki Minaj)

    also KA oxidizing & not going well with Vitamin C is stressing me, can I replace KA powder with a strong KA lighting soap instead and use AA, Vit C & Niacinamide in the lotion to lighten/maintain?

    The Ordinary, they have a store in Covent Garden, if that's not near you, order online.
    The other I would recommend is Cosmetic Skin Solution https://www.cosmeticskinsolutions.co...reme-serum-20/

    Or......make your own!!
