hey johnchristopher. thats cool. let's stick to this and keep reporting how it goes. very encouraging that you are trying out something similar.
in April, my peeling cycle was 2 days, now its becoming more than 8 day cycle. what i found was that balms/creams etc make EC peel faster and peel more, cos they make that white film thing very easily when showering. thus short peeling cycle ranging from 1-4 days.
