rubbing off flaky gunk from face

Recommended Posts

after cleaning my face in the shower, and before stepping out to apply the BP i would sometimes rub my face with my fingers and notice alot of flaky gunk come off. what is this stuff? im guessing doing this is helping my skin breath but is the finger rubbing aggrivating my skin bad?

I believe that 'flaky gunk' is dead skin.

if you want to try to rub it off i suggest you use some jojoba oil

look at this topic for more detail

That definitely sounds like dead, flaking skin. Lightly brush it off, don't forcibly rub anything.
