Q What’s the quick­est way to stop my skin from flak­ing?

Cosmopolitan (India) - - BEAUTY -

A A scaly layer of dry skin blocks mois­turiser from pen­e­trat­ing, so you have to re­move it first, says NYC derm Macrene Alex­i­ades. Ex­fo­li­ate with a scrub made of gen­tle mi­crobeads (a great pick: The Body Shop Vi­ta­min C Fa­cial Cleans­ing Pol­ish, ₹ 795). Then ap­ply a plain, non-ir­ri­tat­ing mois­turiser (such as Cham­bor Hy­dra Max Es­sen­tial Day Mois­tur­izer, ₹ 495). Also im­por­tant: “Avoid anti-age­ing creams—their acids will only pro­duce more dry­ness and flak­ing,” says Dr Alex­i­ades.

The Body Shop Vi­ta­min C Fa­cial Cleans­ing Pol­ish, ₹ 795 Cham­bor Hy­dra Max Es­sen­tial Day Mois­tur­izer, ₹ 495 Rusk Babyliss PRO Nano Ti­ta­nium Straight­ener, ₹ 6,475
