    Light Routine Gentle Salicylic Acid Home Peel


    Yes! Salicylic acid use over the counter is quite common. All the products in the Stuff That Works® range, including Light Routine® Gentle, have been carefully curated for use by individuals without consulting with a dermatologist. These are DIY products that are meant to be used at the comfort of your home. These products are classified as cosmeceutical home peels.

    Salicylic acid application is pretty simple. The Light Routine® Gentle salicylic acid treatment should be used once weekly for 8 to 10 weeks. 

    First, cleanse your skin properly with a gentle cleanser and allow the skin to dry completely. Now follow through with a gentle application of Light Routine® Gentle salicylic acid. 

    Pour about 2-3 drops of the peel onto your palm and gently apply a single coat of the product evenly over the face and the neck. Start with the forehead, proceed to your cheeks and finish with the central face. The application time should not exceed 30 seconds. Wash off the product with cold water after 60 seconds. Avoid getting the product on the lips and around the eyes. Use a gentle cleanser and ensure complete removal of the product. Make sure your cleanser is mild and does not contain any hydroxy acids. Applying salicylic acid should be gentle, avoid rubbing, as this can lead to patchy and uneven penetration of the product. Use the Ice Lolly or an ice cube to cool down the area for 1-2 minutes for the tingling sensation to subside completely.

    Yes, you can use salicylic acid chemical peel on active acne. You can use Light Routine® Gentle salicylic acid home peel for acne. If you are between your Light Routine® sessions and see a pimple popping up, use a tiny amount of product and do spot application only for longer than 30 seconds. You need at least a three day gap between a full-face session and a spot session.

    Yes! Light Routine® Gentle salicylic acid chemical peel  is suitable for all skin types. For people with sensitive skin, we suggest you start with Light Routine® Soft and work your way up to Light Routine® Gentle.

    Yes! You need to cleanse the skin with a gentle cleanser before using the peel and allow it to dry completely before applying the Light Routine® Gentle.

    Yes! You definitely need to use sunscreen while using Light Routine® Gentle. It is also advisable to limit your outdoor sunlight exposure for at least a day after using the peel. You should start with a sunscreen habit first, and then start your Light Routine® weekly ritual, once you get comfortable using a sunscreen.

    You may need to use salicylic acid based chemical peels like Light Routine® Gentle, once every week for maximum benefits. If you are happy with your skin at the end of 10 weeks, it is okay to give your skin a break! However, if you wish to, you may use the Light Routine® Gentle as maintenance once every 10 days to 2 weeks if your skin is behaving itself.

    Using a moisturizer is completely optional. If you feel extremely dry after salicylic acid peeling, you may use a gentle moisturizer like the Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel, Optimist Waterbody or Avene Thermal Spray.

    No, we do NOT recommend having other creams/ peels/serums/ home remedies, while you are getting started with the Light Routine® regimen. The Light Routine® is a high-performance home peel, which goes best with a good sunscreen regimen, and a gentle, appropriate face wash. You may introduce a vitamin C serum later, once you are confident that your skin is comfortable with the home peel.

    Store Light Routine® Gentle in a cool, dry, dark place and keep away from direct sunlight. If you have taken out an excess of product, do not try to put it back into the bottle. This will end up inactivating the entire product. We recommend that you dry your hands thoroughly before using the product, as moisture will make it unfit for use.

    The best time to use the peel is at bedtime, so that you can allow your skin to rest overnight. If you are someone that works in night shifts, you can schedule your peel just before you go to sleep.

    We do not recommend steaming the face when you are on a Light Routine® program.

    Light Routine® is conceived as a stand-alone treatment. It's best not to have other similar products in your regimen. The best way to go forward is to use the Light Routine® as a solo therapy with your sunscreen and face wash, if you do not have any skin regimen to start with.  If you are on any skin regimen with your Dermatologist, check with him/ her before using the Light Routine®. 

    Please also note that, if you are on a skin regimen containing hydroquinone-based products, withdrawal should be completed over 6-8 weeks before getting on to the Light Routine®.

    Yes! You can wear makeup after using a salicylic acid peel on your face. Make sure you don't skip sunscreen though!

    Yes! Salicylic acid benefits people suffering from hyperpigmentation.

    Salicylic acid’s oil control properties are amazing! So yes! It is good for oily skin as it unclogs pores, reduces oiliness and helps with acne.

    Light Routine® Gentle works best with LED Mask, Re(d)covery Serum, White Pine Pycnogenol, and TOR Marine collagen.

    Yes, you can use salicylic acid chemical peel on active acne. You can use Light Routine® Gentle salicylic acid home peel for acne. If you are between your Light Routine® sessions and see a pimple popping up, use a tiny amount of product and do spot application only for longer than 30 seconds. You need at least a three day gap between a full-face session and a spot session.

    NO! You cannot apply oil on your face/scalp while on a skincare regimen with Light Routine® Gentle as oil is comedogenic in nature and hinders the progress you make and clogs up the pores causing more acne.

    Yes! You can use the Light Routine® Gentle salicylic acid for face and neck.

    Users have managed to squeeze in over 17-20 uses.

    You can buy the best salicylic acid products for skin at the CHOSEN®  store. The Light Routine® range of products that retail at CHOSEN® contains salicylic acid that is good for the skin.

    It is great to balance a moisturising exfoliator with a brightening exfoliator. Here’s how you can use the two, together.

    On the Light Routine® day, skip the application of White Pine® Serums and can be used on the next day.

    On the Light Routine® day, skip the application of Blue Block and can be used on the next day.

    Yes! Re(d)covery™ Serum can be used 24 hours after using the Light Routine® range of salicylic acid peels.

    Gentle exfoliant

    Wanted to try a clinical exfoliant and this one was very gentle. But I found it more effective as a spot treatment for acne to subside and fade without leaving a scar.
