Whenever I exfoliate with a washcloth I'm gentle as possible but still my face gets irritated it gets really oily and I see fine lines that weren't there before...I even tried with my fingers I had same results chemical exfoliates do same thing..so I decided to massage gentle cleanser morning and night and no irritation but will this keep dead skin away ? what I do is splash lukewarm water on face then massage cleanser then when it's all off I splash face with cool water

my derm told me to just exfoliate in the shower by rubbing in circles with your fingertips so you could try this and see if it works for you. it doesnt for me so i use a toner with AHA daily to exfoliate and thats it. my skin doesnt get too irritated that way but i wouldnt worry at all i am sure the washcloth is fine too just be really gentle with it. when you are done then pat dry and then apply your moisturizer right away. i find that if i always keep my face moisturized i dont see too many fine lines its when its dry that they pop up.
