Hello, I'm Sandra Oulmas. And this is steps of facial peeling. Today, I will demonstrate the five steps of a professional glycolic acid facial peel. Let's get started. Step one, perform an initial cleansing with an exfoliating cleanser. Apply and massage the cleanser into the areas where the peel will be applied. Once fully cleansed, remove gently with moist facial sponges. Step two, apply a decreasing solution to remove any residual oil that would keep the peel solution from penetrating the skin. Step three, begin application of the glycolic peel solution, starting at the forehead and painting upwards towards the hairline. Follow with quick strokes around he perimeter of the face in a counter clockwise fashion. Saving the periorbital and nasal areas for last. Step four, allow the acid to work on the skin for one to three minutes. Once the skin appears uniformly pink, the peel is complete. However if at any time hot spots or areas of persistent redness appear. Remove the peel solution with cool water. Step five, use a neutralizing solution or simply remove with tepid water and sponges, or four by four gauze. To achieve the best results, daily use of home care products containing at least five or ten percent glycolic acid is recommended as pre-treatment for a minimum of two weeks prior. Hydroquinone, a bleaching agent is sometimes used in a conjunction with glycolic acid pre-treatment, especially if your skin is prone to pigmentation. Finally, remember to always use SPF after a glycolic peel or during pre-treatment, with glycolic based products as alpha hydroxy acids can sensitize your skin. Again, I'm Sandra Oulmas and thank you for watching steps for facial peeling.
