after washing my face i can see some white peeled skin on my forehead, i think its the peeling from retin a.

so my question is does that peeled skin causes breakouts if i don't remove it? like it can clog pores?


Hi there,

First off all be very gentle to your skin while it is peeling. DO NOT scrub it hard with a washcloth, towel, facial scrub, etc. What you want to do is apply a non-comedogenic moisturizer after you wash your face. This will help the skin peel off on its own. You should try 100% pure Aloe Vera Gel, Moisturel, or Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. All of these are very good moisturizers that will hydrate your skin but not clog your pores.
