How do you treat flakes?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've been using Stridex foam pump for awhile now and my skin becomes very dry; so dry that I can see flakes on my skin. What is the best way to take care of the flakes?? Do I brush them off, or put mosturizer on top of it??

The tape method maybe. Please dont hit me if I am wrong. :) Look at the scar board for a description of how to use that method. Hmm. Perhaps you should take advice from someone more qualified than me. Only trying to help.

I use an AHA moisturizer that totally takes care of flakes. Remember dead skin collecting in a plugged pore is what started the mess, right? You HAVE to moisturize!! And be careful of brushing too agressively, you also want to do whatever it takes not to irritate the skin.
