Hey everyone, I bought glycolic peel off ebay for about 7 bucks 70% glycolic peel and I used it a few days mom helped me, and I did everything right. And actually well there is no probably, just wondering something. Now it's only been a few days and my colored scars are actaully almost gone, I don't apply anything else on my face and I won't for a while cause I'm a little paranoid and want it to work perfectly. It says that your skin will start to peel, now I think that when ever I go to cloth my face...(wipe it with a damn cloth) it wipes little little peelings off...I'm not sure, but now finally my chin has little NOTICIBLE peelings, now are you supposed to see peeling?! much to were you peel it off your self like sun burns?. Please if anyone knows tell me, I put this glycolic peel on my face with the home made baking soda paste and everything on friday. I have two more peels left.

I have seen that Glycolic Peel on eBay before.

A 70% Glycolic Peel is wayyyy too strong for your skin if you have never used glycolics before. Yes it will work to clear up scars and acne....but it is also the reason you probably have a bunch of redness and peeling. For better results, try starting out with the 30% glycolic peel they offer and the working up to the 50%, and eventually the 70%. I've read in some publications that even 70% is too strong for the face.....that glycolics in that concentrated amounts should only be used on the body. So be careful and if you continue to use it definitely don't use it too often.

An even better route would be to purchase a glycolic cleanser like MD Forte Glycolic II cleanser. You can get this on eBay, from dermatologists, or on some internet websites. This would be better for you because it still has a high amount of glycolic acid like you want (more stable, too), it will reduce acne and discoloration over time, and since it is rinsed off immediately after application (or after a few minutes if you choose to leave it on) it will be much less irritating to the skin. I have seen great results in a short period time with this is the only form of glycolic acid I use.

Hope this helps!
