Probably: This probably is a case of dry skin.

If it doesn't improve with a skin moisturizer, it is best to see your Dr to determine why. ...Read more

Peeling is a natural hpmeostasis mechanics trying to get rid of dead epithelial cells and build new.

C radiance peel hi I wanted to know if its safe for me to use c radian peel while im breast feeding? Also, rapid age spot&pigment light cream
Maybe: I am unfamiliar with the c radian peel. Murad makes a rapid age & pigment cream. General good advice is if you cannot pronounce the ingredients don't use it.

Yes: If you are talking about the normal peeling of new infant skin in the first month, sure it is fine to do a moisturizer, as long as it is unscented, and preferably a creme rather than a lotion. I recommend eucerin, or even an olive oil based unscented moisturizing creme when baby gets out of the bath, if you are interested to avoid petroleum based products on baby's skin. ...Read more
No: Just leave it alone. It will simply fall off on its own. If you are worried that the skin is so dry that it may be getting cracked in certain locations (wrists or ankles in particular right after birth), try applying some vasoline or aquaphor ointment. In due time, the old (dead skin) will simply fall off as you bathe your baby and the new skin underneath will be nice and soft. ...Read more
