Recommended Posts

is this flaky skin?

when i wipe my face with piece of clothing it shows a lot of dead skin cells on the piece of clothing.

is this because i have flaky skin? or is it just natural that and i should exfoliate this with a towel or washcloth?

will moisturizer help?

That sounds like flaky skin.

A moisturizer should help. We don't recommend exfoliating with towels or washcloths. If a moisturizer doesn't help, you can add a few drops of jojoba oil to it, or you can try one of the AHA moisturizers. They contain alpha hydroxy acids which can help exfoliate the skin without harsh rubbing and scrubbing.

try the AHA and/or jojoba oil route first but if that doesnt work you may want to try the baby brush method. its the only thing that takes care of flakiness for me.
