@hipvalley please don"t disappear again ! You brought me out of DEEP lurker mode !
So this month has been a wash! Lazy lightening doesn’t work for me. I gained and lost progress so much that I’m exactly where I left off in October. At least I’m well exfoliated...
Last night I took an LA bath and did my KIT. I’m ready for December. Me and G&G are going to get it in!!
Kicking off December with a peel!! Face and neck only, and I’m using the 10% on my face and 5% on my neck. Usually 3 applications x 2 consecutive nights is enough to get a great overall peel on. Once I see the skin start to lift I stop applying. That’s a great way to avoid PIH.
This go around I have a few spots I need to be out of my life...
During peel time I do not use soap on my face. I only wet the washcloth in hot water, wring it out then lay it on my face and let the steam from the washcloth do its thing. Then I pat all over my face lightly until the heat starts to cool, and the. remove the washcloth. I do this a lot when I’m peeling because the steam helps to hydrate my skin and keep it from feeling too tight.
Our skin helps us breathe. I don’t do all over body peels for that reason. Instead I exfoliate the rest of my body while my face is peeling and do a HQ+KA combination - usually a light HQ oil and a Kojic acid lotion. The lightening is usually slow, BUT I will tell you my magic secret...
Heat is our lightening friend. I discovered this by accident. Buy yourself one of those $25 heating blankets. Do your normal body application stuff and let it absorb into your skin - give it 10-15 minutes. Then turn on your heating blanket to a temperature that makes you comfortable and get under it. By morning you’ll be extra glowy AND you may even catch a full shade jump. Depending on the strength of your products.
Yes, you can do it as often as you like.
No, you will not go from Lupita to JLo in a week.
If you try it, let me know how it works for you!
