Extreme dryness and dead skin!

Recommended Posts

Hello I've been using the acne.org cleanser, bp, and mouisturizer for about 3 months now. It's been working really great however my face looks like a crocodiles skin! Anyone know how to help this? I don't want to stop bp because it's working so great but the peeling skin is tempting

I would recommend every couple days putting on a TON of moisturizer and then GENTLY wiping off the moisturizer with a damp wash cloth. i know that wash clothes are usually a 'no-no' but sometimes the extra exfoliation can help with the dead skin cells and product left on the skin.

This really helped actually!

I've broken down and resorted to using apple cider vinegar to remove dead skin and gently exfoliate. It's an acid, so I figure it will act similarly to the glycolic acid but maybe be gentler? I take a warm, damp baby wash cloth and apply the acv(braggs) to a small corner and then to my face as gently as possible, THEN do the regimen. I don't leave the acv on my face. I've only done this twice in my first month of the regimen, in desperate times. I did this on my 3rd week with great results. It made my skin smooth and less flaky, the next morning it looked great and I felt like my acne.org products sank into my skin so well for some reason. Desperate times, desperate measures. I did what I needed to make it thru lol

Also I used acv for maybe a year before acne.org and always loved it so there's that lol. I used to put it on before applying ponds cold cream and remove with a warm rag with good results but not 100% clarity like with this regimen
