Those areas peeled in HUGE sections, it’s was basically my whole thigh and knees and some of my leg, elbows and part of my arm, and patches of my hand and no I didn’t occluded I just washed with put the lotion on and I don’t use acid peels much because my skin the look won’t change for a while but then bomb a random day my skin would be too light and it takes a while for pigment to come backThats all that peeled? Or are you still in the process of peeling? I really am shocked now that 18% would cause you to peel in sheets. Did you occlude with this lotion or just apply like a normal lotion?? Honestly, if the strength was too high your skin your would know, you would have irritation, red itchy bumps. So if you don't be thankful I've done my fair share of peels and yes my skin ends up blending and catching up, so don't worry, yours will do the same.
