is it bad to pick off dead skin?

Recommended Posts

I got back from a 1 week vacation on Thursday, i guess i got a little sunburnt because my skin was temperature sensitive, and not i have a whole bunch of skin on one of my arms peeling off.

I feel like trying to pick all the dead skin off, but don't know if i really should.

I understand how you feel about wanting to peel your skin.  As an esthetician I would say to get a very mild exfoliant. (You can make one out of sugar and coconut oil to use in the shower) and gentlyscrub away the dead skin followed by an alcohol and fragrance free moisturizer.  Preferably fatty (cocoa and she a butter bases products are great.)  That will eliminate it so that you don't have to fight any picking urges.  I understand how amazing it is to pick it.
