I need some emergency advice! I am trying all sorts of oils and moisture lotions, aquaphor etc. I have ceased my exfoliating regime and saw improvement the first couple of days immediately. NOW suddenly and overnight, I woke up to what I can only describe as keritinized skin all over, especially arms where I exfoliated the most. It is almost like I have a sheel on top of my skin, it moves almost uniformly like leather skin. I am sure this is part of the healing process but obviously it is distressing to me as it looks even older than the crepe-paper skin did and now it looks even more creped than before because it is more or less semi-solid like a thin shell! It feels really dehydrated and almost like it has set up its own barrier against letting anything in.
