I had a TCA peel that was preceded by a jessner peel. My skin is very flaky and red. I've been given mixed messages as to whether or not I should use mosturizer during the peel. Some say to not use them because the skin peels off faster if I don't mosturize. Another derm said it didn't matter. Any suggestions? This looks really bad today. It's my first peel. Please tell me it gets better!
I'm 3 Days into my Peel and Am Getting Mixed Messages on Moisturizing or Not?

Your information is right. Without moisturizer skin will peel faster. If the skin is very dry and cracking then you can moisturize, you still will get the same result
