In brief: Common

This product is a chemical stripping agent that removes built up skin that plugs pores and allows the acne to form.You must find the amount of time it can stay on your skin and help without causing pealing.
This is trial and error.It may be 1 hr, it may be 8, you may need to skip a day between applications. Figure it out and and it should help.
