I am going to be completely honest with you, the first time I used Dr.Songs 50% Lactic Acid I hated it! I really did. It burnt my skin and I could not wait to take it off. But the next time I used it, it wasn’t so bad, it still burnt but it was more tolerable. The more I used this product the more I began to fall in love with it, I will show you why in a minute. First I want to say that if you have sensitive skin I do not recommend this product. The first 2 times I used it, it actually left burn marks on my skin. But… each time I use this product it burns less and less. I’m not sure if I am more tolerant to it now or if it was just something my skin had to adjust to, maybe both.
Let me show you how to apply Dr.Songs 50% Lactic Acid:
What you will need:
Dr.Songs Lactic acid (of course!)
6 cotton balls
a clean wash cloth
timer ( I use the stop watch on my cell phone)
A very good face moisturizer
What to do:
First wash face with face wash and pat dry.
next drop about 3 droppers full of lactic acid onto a cotton ball and apply to one side of face and neck, do the same thing on a new cotton ball and apply to the other side of your face and neck. ( WARNING: KEEP AWAY FROM EYES!)
Set your timer for 30 seconds ( This is what I started with and what I recommend starting with. Each time you use Dr.Songs 50% Lactic acid gradually work your way up 30 seconds at a time until you reach 4 minutes. I also recommend staying at 30 seconds for a week then moving up to 1 minute for a week and so on… till you reach 4 minutes)
Next soak the other 4 cotton balls with warm water one at a time and begin to wipe the peel off your face.
After I got the majority of the peel off I then wet my wash cloth with warm water and wipe my face and neck just to make sure I got all of it off.
Next pat your face dry and apply a very good face moisturizer ( I use Mary Kay, time wise moisturizer)
Here is what my skin looked like after one time use
And here is what it looked like after about 5 times using this product ~ you can see how the burns start disappearing and my skin tone is evening out, it also shrunk my pores.
I am truly loving my results with this product and I will continue to use it. I love the fact that it is shrinking my pores!
