Stick With It For 7 days Before Giving Up!
on March 27, 2013
So many people freak out when the zits arrive and give up when they start using this product because of it. This is my SECOND tube. I have combination skin prone to pimples and cysts on my cheeks and chin + the brown spots those things leave behind. Through the years I've used scrubs and various treatments including glycolic acid peels at the dermatologist's office. THIS will give you the benefits like a glycolic peel within a week IF you have the patience to use it for 7 days. The smooth, soft, clearer skin IS revealed AND people do notice you're doing something different!
Depending on how clogged your pores are and how deep the pimply goop is, will determine IF your face will seem to be at it's all time WORST. The thermal properties and the massage "wakes up" and sprouts every zit you can imagine! It did for me, and so did dermatologist office treatments. So I'd initially start using this on a Friday night when you can be a hermit for the weekend in case you have a Zit-fest.
After removing ALL makeup and REALLY cleaning the face and neck, use this product according to directions, adding water to reactivate the thermal properties a couple times (I do it 3 times). After rinsing, you'll feel as though there is a residue left on the skin after rinsing it off. DO NOT re-wash your face, leave it be. Don't even put on moisturizer, let your skin soak the residue in and adjust to the NEW SKIN SHERIFF in-town over the weekend.
I used it twice a day and on weekdays apply all my usual moisturizer w/SPF and makeup. IF running late, I skipped the morning Mini-Peel treatment BUT as soon as I got home I took off my makeup, cleansed my face and whipped out the Thermal Mini-Peel and worked it! After the first 7 days, I used it only in the evenings on weekdays and twice a day on weekends. I really like to spend the time to get at least 3 thermal re-activations per treatment so rushed mornings usually aren't conducive to it.
My skin is smoother, softer, clearer with LESS whiteheads, blackheads, zits than it has been in years. Even the brown spots slowly faded without other "potions". Going forward, I used this only a couple times a week rather than every day because my skin IS doing so well. Point being, I didn't see myself using this TWICE a day forever :)
