Prep: Prior to the first peel, it is recommended that you use one Step 1 Activator Pad and one Step 2 Neutralizer Pad on a small inconspicuous part of your face following the directions below. If there is no irritation or discomfort after 24 hours, you may proceed with a peel of the entire face.
Cleanse the face with an Exuviance cleanser.
Apply a Step 1 Activator Pad over the entire face, avoiding eye area, lips and any area of sensitivity. Then discard pad.
Carefully monitor the skin's response to the Peel by observing any redness or discomfort, including stinging, burning, itching, tightness, tingling and peeling.
Apply a Step 2 Neutralizer Pad to the face after 10 minutes, or sooner if you experience bothersome redness or discomfort. Apply over entire face (avoiding eyes and lips), and then rinse the face thoroughly with water.
Apply a moisturizer such as Exuviance Overnight Transformation Complex.
