Why would you have to stay at home most of the time? It doesn't mention anything about leaving the keratin to build up. I just exfoliate everyday but what pisses me off is that sometimes I'll exfoliate every other day and it looks great but sometimes it doesn't so I would peel every other day if I could but it's just so unpredictable. Does anyone else have this issue? I'd rather just exfoliate everyday and not have to think too much about it. But lately I have had some burning from exfoliating too much I hope this is just a one time thing. I exfoliate without having to rub with my finger so I don't harm the lips. I exfoliate every morning by applying stuff before bed. It sucks but what other option do I have other than to do this every other day. But even though it usually looks OK the second day I just feel more comfortable having no build up at all. It's sometimes red but no one really notices they just think that my lips look that way. If you look at Dwyane Wade his lips look like he just peeled but I know this is just something that some black people have. Well at least I can have something in common with him ha ha.
