My skin feels super dry after exfoliating. Any solutions for this?

Hey Richa, you can try these tested techniques and it will help you feel better. Stop all foaming cleansers, retinol products, and physical or chemical exfoliators. Switch to a mild cleanser and a fragrance-free moisturizer. Spot treat extremely red or raw areas with a rich emollient, like Aquaphor or Aqua Veil. You can also use a hydrocortisone cream or aloe gel.

Use mild exfoliating like Thriveco exfoliating foaming cleanser and do apply a good moisturizer or aloevera gel after exfoliation.

It could be due to harsh chemicals present in the exfoliating wash. I am using ThriveCo exfoliating face wash twice a week and never had such issue. I would suggest u to make a switch
