Remember not to use anything you may be allergic to, and if you’re trying a chemical facial treatment for the first time, test it on a small patch of facial skin (such as the space behind your ear) for a couple of days to see if it causes a severe reaction before you try it on your whole face. If you are the type of person who has very sensitive skin or if you tend to break out or develop sores from just about any type of facial skin treatment, you should probably stay away from chemical peels altogether. There are plenty of great all-natural treatment options you can try, so be sure to speak to your skin care specialist for more information.
