Question: How do you make a neutralizing solution for TCA peels?
To make the neutralizing solution, mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda (make sure your baking soda is fresh - if it bubbles or foams when mixed with vinegar, then it's good) with 1 1/2 cups of water.
You can neutralize the peel by splashing the affected skin area with the neutralizing solution or gently wiping the area with a soft washcloth soaked in the neutralizing solution.
Beware, the neutralizing solution may actually sting more than the chemical peel itself!
