Paul are you moisturizing? You didn't mention it. If you are new to the regimen, I suggest the Purpose moisturizer, but if you have been doing this for a while try the Eucerin renewal Alpha Hydroxy moisturizer. They are both really nice, not greasy at all. Sometimes you need a double application of moisturizer around the nose and mouth even, to get rid of the flakes. Reply with any questions. -M.

Hi Paul,

I think I know what u mentioned about. I have the same problem before, white flaky thing on around my nose and on my chin. Everytime I have to rub on my skin to get rid of this thing. Initially, I thaught they were my dead skin cell, but however, I discovered they were residue from soap or either moisturizer.

As solution, I stopped from soap usig because as I know that soap contain WAX that may leave residue, and the OXY5% as it hardly managed to absorb into my skin, I think it's too solid.

Now, I have Clear skin, no acne WITHOUT using any BP. I'm using Neutrogena® Deep Clean Cleanser and Neutrogena® pore refining essence, neutrogena® radiance essence and neutrogena® combination skin moisture as my skin moisturizer for different time.

HOpefully you will find a solution~
