3rd TCA Chemical Peel - Day 3

Day 3 after a TCA Chemical Peel is really the worst day: the skin looks like leather, no matter how much moisturizer I use.  This is not a good look, so I try to hide on days 3-4.

You can see that the skin looks more leathery where I applied more of the solution.  I did not apply solution to the side of my face, so it looks normal, less red and leathery.

I am also cleansing using the Oil Cleansing Method, which helps, but it doesn't prevent this leathery look.  I like to use Apricot Kernel Oil, and this is the brand I like.

The oil may not prevent the leathery look, but it does help with tightness, and it won't cause acne for me.
