1 My Lactic Acid Experience on Thu Jun 10, 2010 2:02 am

First topic message reminder :

Ok. I received my lactic acid about a week ago from lotioncrafters. It came in 2 days!! Quick shipping! Anyway, I'm still watining for my mequinol and Retin A.
I applied the lactic acid last night. My skin is really resistant so I did a test with pure lactic acid and I didn't feel a thing. So, I put it on my face and neck with a wet towel. 88%. It tingled very little. It seemed a bit oily and when it dried, it felt kind of rubbery. The next day the right side of my face started peeling alot. No peeling on the left. But I had already significantly lightened from Makari and Nadinola, I didn't think I would see a big difference, but it is at least a full shade lighter where my skin peeled. The new skin had a supple glow to it. Oh, I forgot to add that I applied more makari/nadinola about 5 hours later. (after the LA dried).
So far so good. I reapplied to the the left side of my face that hasn't peeled. I look two colors. lol [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Some of it got on the area that had already peeled and I had to immediately get it off of that area b/c it burned like [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] . So don't apply this to any peeled areas or open.
I plan to start on my body tomorrow. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I was thinking about that, which makes me think of using make up pads like what you would use to wipe off makeup. Or I could use a Q-tip I suppose....

Using a paint brush with soft bristles means you are not wasting a lot of the solution and it also allows you to cover larger areas relatively quickly. For the face, the small fan brush is fine or for very small areas, I have used a cotton bud

Some companies also suggest that a gauze pad can also be used, but again this can absorb more solution than you would with a brush.

PorcelainSkin,

Most companies do provide instructions on how to apply, but if in doubt there is further info on page 2, I think, about how to carry out the peel. If in doubt, once you get it, you are more than welcome to ask again.

The key is to make sure that you only leave it on for a short period intially 2/3 minutes, maximum and thoroughly neutralise once the time is up.

ok, on the outside of my face right were my hairline is and at the top of my forehead,it is lighter, and instead of fading to it's original darker color, it just jumps from one shade to another, the camera does not pick this up well but i hope you can see it.

I know the elbows and knees can be the hardest to lighten and I believe some use a stronger ret a strength on their knees and elbows or peels.

Ret a alone doesn't lighten, or I don't think it does. It helps the hq or mq penetrate the skin.

Well I did a big nono and used the 88% without diluting and it stung just a little. I don't recommend doing this unless it's your elbows, knees or knuckles. Dilute it with something. But if you put it on dry skin, you'll be fine. The most you'll feel is tingling.

Hey, thanks for the info. I wanted to know, I've already ordered my lactic acid, so can I apply the 88% on knees and elbows, and then dilute it to about 40% for the rest of the sun-damaged skin? How quickly will I see peeling if i apply it once a week for a month? (thats 4 times in total).

I saw peeling on day three. Alot of peeling! Diluting, it may take a little longer. I'm not sure as I have just started another peel for the second time at 40% yesterday, so I'll let you know.

So you saw peeling using the 88% lactic acid? Where did u apply it? Were you happy with the results of the peeling?? Did it leave smoother skin?

PorcelainSkin,


Most important thing to do, is the patch test to check for sensitivity. Try on a small area like the inner wrist, as you plan to only use it on your body. Then wait at least 24 hours to see how you react. My Fingers are also crossed and I am looking forward to seeing how you find this. Very Happy

Do I do the patch after I take my shower at night for instance? And then wake up in the morning and take another shower and then see? Or will it rub off or won't it make a difference? Maharani, please check your inbox hun. Thanks
