I got a medium depth chemical peel about two days ago and my face was very dry and had thick patches of brown tough dead skin. The skin began to crack open so I began peeling off my skin, which exposed very pink fresh skin that bleed a little bit. Is this a bad thing??? I don't know if I should have peeled off the brown patches only two days after getting the peel???

Manually peeling skin after chemical peel
I advise never to pick any loose or scabby skin, although if the skin is a bit flaky, then you can put on some moisturizing cream on your finger and gently rub the flaky skin off (not picking, and not scratching).
