Peeling after applying moisturizer

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Been on the regimen for 3 days now and wow! I can't believe the difference. Got a question about peeling.

Is my skin supposed to peel even after using a moisturizer, and how much "post-moisturizer" peeling is normal? I find that my skin feels tight and starts to peel less than an hour after applying a moisturizer. Is this normal for the first few days, or am I doing something wrong (not putting enough on, not putting it on often enough, etc.) I apply a fair amount as it is. I use the Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture.

Thanks for any help.

Correction.

Sorry. I meant to say "flaking" and not "peeling." My skin doesn't actually peel.

Yes, it's normal. I lost the top layer of skin the first week but now my skin is soft and smooth in my third week. It's still feels tight but I've had only one breakout and it went away fast!!! :)/
