Glycolic Acid is Peeling agent that removes the superficial Dead skin layer and causes growth of new lighter glowing skin.
Chemical Peels are acids therefore should be used under the Supervision of trained cosmetologists.

below neck or armpit, see for any redness beyond the margin of application, if seendiscontinue the
procedure. If no redness or itching continue with the procedure
Cleanse the skin with oil free cleanser, if using oil containing cleanser, after cleansing
whip with alcohol or spirit. oil blocks the acid therefore desired action is not achieved.

first the skin dies so becomes black don't worry this is the skin that is going to peel of itself
There are two types of peeling microscopic that is not seen by naked eyes, and macroscopic
peeling that is visualised very well
Do not remove the skin by your self.
Don't use soap for 2-3 days, thereafter, use mild soap for 7-8 days, don't scrub too hard
If you don't get desired results doesnt mean the peel is not working it only means that your
skin is tough for the peel you are using. then its time to use stronger peels or increase the
application time of the peel in the next sitting.
