Dead skin and facial wrinkles
Hello Moyah.It seems that you have dry skin which has resulted in a tightening sensation of your facial skin. Based on your description and without seeing your skin, it seems that you need to take a number of steps to correct this. Firstly you need to prep your skin by using a good quality cream with hydrating and emollient qualities. You need to have a good diet and drink plenty of water. Once you start to feel that these changes have had some effect I think it would be wise to have a gently AHA peel with some gentle microdermabrasion. This would help remove the dead skin you describe. You should use a high SPF cream e.g. SPF 50 when out in the sun but avoid prolonged periods of sun exposure. You can gradually build up to a stronger peel over time, with treatments no sooner than 3 to 4 weeks apart.If you have very dark skin I would not recommend a TCA peel which is quite strong and may result in hyperpigmentation. Good luck.
