In this post, I’m going to walk you through a mild at-home peel featuring Peter Thomas Roth’s 40% Triple Acid Peel!
Cleanse the skin with a gel cleanser containing mild detergents such as Simply Clean by Skin Ceuticals. Dry skin very thoroughly with a towel.
Break ampoule and apply peel product onto the pad provided.
Swipe onto the skin, thoroughly saturating skin with peel product. It should feel “stingly”- a combination of stinging and tingly. Leave on for 2 minutes. (n.b. If you decide to do this as a series of weekly consecutive peels, you may increase the time that you leave the product on up to 15 minutes by week 12, but only as tolerated!)
Deactivate the peel with a soft cloth soaked in cold water. Keep swiping and removing until no more sensation is felt, paying attention to the corners of the nose and the hairline.
Apply a thin layer of a calming mask- my go-to is Phyto Corrective Masque by SkinCeuticals. Leave on for 15 minutes, and then rinse off with cool water.
Wear sunscreen, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. Cleanse the skin gently with only water for the first day after doing this peel (no washcloths and certainly no abrasive cleansers). Enjoy the glow that you get from exfoliating with Glycolic, Salycylic and Mandelic acids!
