2 follow the prescribed post care kit instrucitons

3 avoid direct sun for 2-3 weeks (wear large brimmed hats, seek the shade, use an umbrella)

4 do not wax or exfoliate for 72 hours minumum

5 do not pick of peel at any resulting loose skin, flaking skin as scarring may occur

6 avoid excessive heat  - sun exposure, saunas, steam rooms, hot yoga, steam showers

7 avoid strenuous excursive or any activity that would increase the blood circulation to the face - for 24 hours following peel (this can cause an increased warming effect which could result in discomfort, redness inflammation, swelling or other side effects.)
