Day 3: You may clean your face as usual and apply makeup (preferably oil free). Stay away from exfoliants.
Days 4-7: You will notice skin dryness and flaking due to increased turnover of cells. You may apply a regular skin moisturizer during the time. You may experience some skin shedding during this time.
