Hello Annisa,


Do you know the composition or content in the cream you use? If it contains substances that are exfoliating / exfoliating dead skin cells, the exfoliation effect can occur, but for over-the-counter creams, exfoliation should be very light, almost imperceptible, and not cause complaints or dry and sore skin.


Skin that feels very dry, peeling, and sore can be caused due to irritation to the content in the cream, over exfoliation, eczema, and allergic reactions. To help calm your skin, you can do the following tips:

Stop using creams or all exfoliating skincare products until the skin condition improves
Use more hypoallergenic skincare
Use a moisturizer or soothing cream / soothing gel
Don't peel off the peeling skin
Minimize the use of makeup for a while

If within 5-7 days the skin condition does not improve, I suggest that you consult a dermatologist directly so that further examination can be done to ensure the condition of your skin at this time and so that you can be given a more optimal treatment. The doctor may give special moisturizers or anti-irritating creams to calm the skin.


Henceforth, make sure you do a patch test first by applying any new cream / skincare to only one side of the face and see the reaction first. If a negative reaction appears as you are experiencing this time, you should not proceed with the product. But if there are no complaints, you can continue using the product. And for whitening creams, make sure you use creams that are registered with BPOM and do not contain harmful ingredients.


Hope it helps you,


Thank you
