Use baby oil. The oilyness from the baby oil on your face will absorb in 5 minutes; don't use any other oil like emu, jajoba, etc. They do not help. Or you can use Renew Intensive Skin Therapy Moisturizing Lotion by Melaleuca. Both absoutely work. Flakes gone in a few days.

The primary reason your skin becomes dry is all about impairment. What happens is that the outer layers of skin lose their ability to maintain normal moisture levels. For the most part, this is due to sun damage and, to some extent, Products with irritating ingredients
he first step is to stop damaging the outer layer of skin by avoiding:
Soaps (all kinds, and anything in bar form)
Harsh cleansing ingredients such as sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate
Products with irritating ingredients (i.e. alcohol, peppermint, menthol, mint, citrus, eucalyptus, fragrance)
Exposure to hot water
Abrasive scrubs (think of the microdermabrasion-at-home type, or those that contain fruit and nut fragments)
The next steps are to give your skin what it needs to act like it did before it was damaged by the sun. Here are some fail-safe tips to help you have beautifully smooth, younger-looking skin:
Wear sunscreen daily - chemical free products ex( Little Innoscents Sunscreen SPF 30)
Use state-of-the-art moisturizers (serums, gels, lotions, creams, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, firming, etc. are all just "moisturizers")
For very dry skin, use pure plant oils such as olive oil or jojoba seed oil, applied after your moisturizer over dry areas
Never use products that contain drying or irritating ingredients.
To find chemical-free products, read labels, research ingredients and read as many skin care product reviews as possible.

I have had this same problem by my nose and I found that I had to stop washing my face with the regular acne cleanse.
Take shorter showers
Drink more water
Try skin moisturizer (Lotions do not help)
Mainly though stay moisturized!!!

Does it have cortisone in it? I refuse anything with coritsone since your skin will be totally dependent on it and then it is hard to get off of it. It can be damaging in the end.

I have the same issue and have gone to the dermotologist a bunch of times. He gave me cortisone. Look at the research and it will tell you that you can not go on cortisone long term or your skin will be dependent on it. It is just a temporary cure. The sad situation is the dermotologist will try to give you a quick cure but many times it will come right back. I am refusing anything with cortisone. I am currently trying to put vitamin E oil on it. Also have tried vasciline. I wish there was a natural cure without all these chemicals that can do you more harm than good. They have yet to come up with cures for terminal skin problems. Another issue is our water has too much chlorine in it so when you shower, it could be effecting your scalp and skin. I even put a filter on my shower head to get rid of the chlorine. I think my hair is softer but I still get those rashes on my eyelids.
Wishing for a miracle cure.

I'm having the same issue. Mine started with adult acne....a zit that I would pick...then peel. Then the peeling/picking developed from that point due to a time of stress in my life. Now, if I leave it alone, it clears up for a while and then I will notice a rough place or a piece of skin is lifting up...I will scratch and knock it off and then the whole process begins again. I don't know how to stop it. Additionally, I have rough feeling skin all over my face which I know is extremely dry skin. I used hydrating creams and it helps. I have a fish scales on my lower legs which are bad in winter..it's called ichthyosis. I wonder if that is getting on my face. I've been to a derm and he said basically, quit stirring it up and see what happens. That was useful. NOT.

what I would suggest is a shower lotion/body butter bar. It will combat the drying effect hot water is having on your skin in shower.
Typically, at end of your shower - you turn water off - then apply lotion/body butter bar - then rinse off. Your skin should feel soft and hydrated and I would be curious if the peeling skin continued after using that product.

I found this thread last week because I was having the same problem.
Someone here mentioned they had been using olive oil (but their dogs thought they were a salad haha), but that seemed like a better choice than the lotions I had been applying literally 10 times a day with no result.
My partner had a small tin of "Tattoo Goo", and when I looked at the ingredients they read:
Olive Oil, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Wheat Germ Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Lavender Oil, Sunflower Oil, Rosemary Extract, D&C Green 6
I thought it was worth a shot, and tried applying it to my peeling areas. The relief was almost instant and almost immediately the dry, tight feeling on my skin that the lotion wasn't touching went away. I kept at it, whenever I felt it start to wear off I reapplied a small amount. I've been using it for about 3 days in a row now.
It's working. There is no better way to say it. The peeling has stopped and my skin is starting to heal. I still have the discoloration where the patches were, and if I forget to reapply they start to dry out again, but I am hoping with continued use this will stop.
I wanted to list the ingredients because I'm sure many health food stores have a similar product. The consistency is something like vapo-rub and it stays on for several hours before finally wearing off.
The only downside is I am oily, and in the light my face shines. I am 100% okay with this, since the alternative would be peeling.
This might not work for everyone, but this thread really helped put me on the right track, so I wanted to share
Good luck and thank you to everyone on this forum who shared their story! It was great to not feel alone.
