Strong Acid Solution?
Please use strong acid as often as possible
What is strong acid and what is the% level? In general, acids can be found in acid toners, serums, and creams. Some examples of acids include glycolic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid, salicylic acid. Acid can help exfoliate dead skin cells so that the skin will be smoother, brighter, reduce fine lines, and help treat acne.
For the use of acid itself, it should be adjusted to the condition of the skin. It is better not to use acid too often because it can cause excessive skin peeling. The impact is that the skin feels pulled, dry, reddish, and peels off. And when using acid you have to make sure you use sunscreen in the early evening. Skin that uses acidic treatments is more susceptible to sunlight.
Since you didn't mention the type and% of acid, I'll just take glycolic acid as an example. Acid toner containing 5-7% glycolic acid can be used every day if the skin is used to it. For the beginning of use, it should be tried once a week, increased 2x a week, then once every 2 days, only every day after the skin gets used to it. For acids that are higher in%, for example, 10% glycolic acid can be used 2-3 times / week. For higher acids, it can be used as a weekly treatment, for example, once every 1-2 weeks.
Usually in every acid product package there is already a description of the procedure for use, whether it can be used every day, 2-3 times / week, or just once a week. Make sure you use the acid according to the way it is used in the packaging to avoid over-exfoliating or exfoliating. You should also use acid products that are intended for home peeling. For acids that are higher in% and intended for chemical peeling by doctors, patients should not use them at home alone.
