Over-exfolliated my skin
I over-exfolliated my skin, and now my skin is dry and looks dull. What can I do to get my dewy, healthy skin back? Thanks
Use bland moisturizers as often as you can. Avoid washing your skin with very hot water. Avoid prolonged soaking, too. Use mild cleansers instead of soaps. It may also be suffering from winter/dry air, depending on where you live.
