Hi Arushi,
Thanks for writing in.
Betnovate is a potent steroid and it should NOT be used on face.
It can cause permanent damage to your face when used for long time.
It good that you have stoppped using it.
Since you have used it for long time ,it can cause problems like skin peeling that you are facing now.
Use good quality moisturizer like venusia Max cream 2-3 times a day.
Condition should improve slowly.

Hope this helps.
