First, apply a thin layer to onto DRY skin over a small area (10 minutes after washing), and wait a few hours to determine your sensitivity. You should feel a slight tingle that diminishes within a few minutes, but no redness. If this is the case, build up to daily use by applying once every other day for 2 weeks, then once a day for 3 days to a week (depending on how your skin feels), skipping 3-7 days, and repeating the cycle. A rotating use schedule allows your skin to renew and repair between times of being challenged with the acids. If your skin becomes red during the initial patch test, try using the lotion OVER or mixed with your moisturizer; this wil raise the pH, creating a milder exfoliation. Over time, your skin will become acclimated to the product and you can begin using it under your moisturizer. Use of a sunscreen +/or protective clothing is advised when using any product containing alpha hydroxy acids and for one week after discontinuing product use.
