So I've been on the regimen for the past 3 months and my face is still dry! I put on moisturizer and then 20 minutes later the flakes come back! Ok so I start out with my cleanser in the shower... and then when I get out it looks like there are huge cracks beneath my lip/above chin area. It's not that bad after I moisturize but everytime I moisturize it seems it comes back like 10-20 minutes later... It's gotten to the point where I have to carry my moisturizer around wherever I go... Should I reduce BP usage or get a new moisturizer? I use Cetaphil daily moisturizing lotion right now. I tried mixing it with AHA like dan suggested but it's still super dry. Thanks!

Have you tried exfoliating? It may be all the flakes make the moisturizer sit atop the skin and not penetrate.

I have this problem too. Cetaphil Moisturizer got rid of the flakes for me. Try it out.

I had to stop using it though because it made my skin red, still looking for a substitute.

I've been having this same problems for months as well. My forehead and cheeks will be so dry it's embarrassing with all the cracks and flakes. I know it's good layers of skin are coming off, but not when you can tell all day every day. I use tons of the oil and moisturizer from her but nothing is working.

Honestly, just use all of dans products. That will help.
