To get rid of the flakey dry skin I get from wearing a mask for 12 hours a day at the hospital I use SecretKey Lemon Sparkling Peeling Gel. This is the BEST peeling gel I've ever used. Honestly, I was super skeptical of peeling gels, I just didn't believe it could actually "peel" off the dead skin. I've tried a few that haven't actually peeled off the dead skin cells but this one actually does what it supposed to do.
The second I put this onto my face, the dry flakey dead skin started bunching up and rolling into little balls. I thought maybe it was just the gel itself bunching up, so after washing my face with it I went back with the same amount of product to see if the same amount of peeling would happen again. But the bunching was a lot less than the first wash. After using this product my skin was soft and clear of that dry flakey skin.
