AHA Mandelic Acid Level 1 Complete Line

The Alpha Hydroxy Acid line which consists of level 1 and 2. Level 1 (the starter kit) consists of 5 items:
• 2 oz. AHA Cleanser
• 2 oz. AHA Toner
• 1 oz. AHA Moisturizer
• 0.5 10% Mandelic Acid Peel
• 0.5 Neutralizer

Level 1

Level 1 (the starter line) is a 21 day program. It is really best that you ease your skin into the lightening system, by starting with Level 1 and not skipping to Level 2. Your skin will thank you for it!
Instructions for use:

Daily (Morning and Night):
1. Use AHA Cleanser, followed by
2. AHA Toner, followed by
3. AHA Moisturizer

Two to Three Times per Week:

• After you’ve cleansed your skin, apply the 10% Mandelic Acid Peel (using a Q-tip or clean gauze), either on entire face, or desired area that needs to be lightened (only on exterior of skin, no inner orifices).
• For the first 2-3 uses, leave 10% Mandelic Acid Peel on for about 3 minutes. You want to ease your skin into the treatment. After the third use, you can increase the time to 4 minutes, then 5, and so on. MAXIMUM time is between 8 to 10 minutes. Please note: your skin may feel tingly, this is normal.
• Rinse off with Neutralizer by mixing ½ a teaspoon of it with ½ a cup of tap water. Take a piece of cotton or fresh gauze and dip into the neutralizing solution that you just made, and wipe off the 10% Mandelic Acid Peel. You might hear or feel a fizzing noise when you place the neutralizing solution on the treated area, this is completely normal, and means the skin is being neutralized. Never rub, gentle dabbing motions are suggested.
• Follow above by rinsing of area treated with clean water, then follow with appropriate moisturizer of treatment serum.

Please follow above instructions for 21 days. Your skin should now be conditioned for the Level 2 phase.

Level 2

Stage 2 consists of a much lower PH the products included in the Level 1 product line. Level 2 consists of a PH level of 1.9 (while level 1 consists of a PH level of 3.5). The lower the PH level, the better the results. Though your skin MUST be conditioned and eased into Level 2.
