OK, GENTLY is the key word. You want to use a very occlusive moisturiser at night- something like QV INTENSIVE, or white soft paraffin. During the day, a hydrating moisture like Obaji Luxe or Hydrate can assist in exfoliation. If you try to scrub or use a Clarisonic, you can remove the flakiness, but may irritate your skin, so be gentle. Dr Davin S. Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
