The downtime is moderate. It varies accordingly to individual skin traits and selected concentration/application methods. After a few days, the top layer of your skin will naturally flake or peel away. This could last for 5-7 days on average but there is a possibility that it may take longer. This process, in essence, reveals a much clearer and smoother skin.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Resorcinol, which may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. We recommend using Steppie MD® Antioxidant Sunscreen Spray SPF 25, which provides broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays with no chemical sun filters. It contains an FDA-approved physical blocker, Zinc Oxide to reflect light away from the skin. Apply 30 minutes before exposure and reapply often when exposed to the sun.
Note: Ethnic skin types should proceed with caution due to an increased risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from Resorcinol exposure.
