The Skinceuticals Gel Peel is a superficial acid peel designed to minimize the appearance of surface lines, smooth out rough skin texture, aid in clearing acne and help fade hyperpigmentation. The combination of glycolic and lactic acids removes dead cells from the surface of the skin without irritation. Offered only as an in-office professional treatment, the gel peel is not sold at retail. However, it is possible to purchase the product online at reputable sites. With the proper education and care, learn to perform the treatment at home.

Step 1

Wash and degrease the face with a gentle, nonabrasive facial cleanser applied to cotton rounds. Pat the skin dry.

Step 2

Dispense approximately two droppersful of peeling gel into a small bowl. Begin at the forehead, and working from the center out, quickly apply the product with the fan brush in an even layer to the face, avoiding the eyes and mouth. This should take no longer than 20 seconds.

Step 3

Allow the gel to dry three to five minutes, and then remove remnants by gently wiping the face with a gauze pad soaked with plenty of cold water. Allow less saturation time for more sensitive skin.

Step 4

Massage two to three drops of Hydrating B5 Gel into the face to calm the skin and moisturize. Rub in until absorbed. Apply an even layer of SPF 20 sunscreen onto the face.
