Ok I'm back. Thanks for being concerned after reading my last post. My skin is a lot better now.
This is what I did for 4 days after the incident:
I splash my face with water, pat dry, then spritz my face with LOTS of MAC Fix +, followed up by 2 pumps of Garden of Wisdom HA Serum to retain the moisture.
Then I PRESS a healthy dollop of Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream all over my skin after I emulsified it between my hands. It's great for sensitive, dry, and weather-damaged skin. It keeps my skin moisturized all day long and makes makeup look a lot better.
Since the Rose Day Cream doesn't have any SPF, I used Neutrogena Oil Free moisturizer with SPF 15 on top to protect my skin.
I removed my face makeup with MAC Cleanse Off oil, and Lancome Bi-Facil to remove my eye makeup/lashes.
Then I used a really gentle cleanser (Acne.org cleanser, forgot to take a pic, but will do a separate review on all of the Acne.org products I've used) in the shower along with a microfiber cloth to exfoliate.
Leaving my face SLIGHTLY damp, I used 3 drops of Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate all over my face.
While that's drying, I pressed some Dr. Hauschka Rose cream into my skin again. Since it doesn't have SPF, you can use it day and night.
Last but not least, I used Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado around my skin. Since the area around my eyes was brutally abused by the AHA, it needs a little extra TLC. My coworker recommended this to me and gave me a couple samples (Side note: Kiehl's give really healthy-sized samples). It is sooo gentle and moisturizing.
I credit these three items for my skin's recovery.
Both the Dr.Hauschka Rose Day Cream and Kiehl's Creamy eye treatment w/ Avocado take a few minutes to be fully absorbed since they are so hydrating. The Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a godsend and I will never be without it again.

My skin now with out makeup. Yes, I still have lot of scars from picking my skin, but the texture is a lot better.
My skin now with makeup. YAY!! No more flaky skin/foundation!
It was a lesson learned. I will be gentle to my skin and pamper it every day. I'm glad to have my skin back.
Thanks for reading.
P.S. I really REALLY recommend the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate. For realz.
