Dry skin problems? - February 24th 2013, 08:21 PM

Recently I've been looking after my skin so much, I cleanse, I moisturize and I always wash my makeup off before bed.
My skin started to look alot better but recently I woke up and my face felt so tight, and when I looked in the mirror the creases in my nose were so dry.
It looked as if it was peeling, and it's weird because it's only in the creases, nowhere else.
Also my lips have become really dry and I use a Nivea lip balm all the time, but it doesn't seem to work!
I've tried sudocrem on my nose but it just makes it sting but it's slowly getting better.
I have no idea how this has all come, because I look after myself quite alot.
Any advice/tips?

Maybe try a richer moisturiser, and use twice a day if you don't already?? Dry skin can often happen in winter and sometimes means you're dehydrated. Make sure you're getting plenty of water and your 5 a day.

Drink lots of water. When you're thirsty, it actually means you're already dehydrated.
I also recommend Eucerine, they make really good quality moisturizers.

Hey

I get excezma and suffer with dry skin I find that the creams / moisturisers that help me are a cocoa butter based one (these also smell nice ) and some E45 cream. Try and get a coca butter one that is also enriched with vitamin e .

The number one thing you can do to help your skin is drinking water - keep a drink bottle with you when you're out and about, and lay off the sugary drinks.

Be careful with what kinds of cleansers (etc) you're using, too - even products that claim to be gentle on skin or all-natural can be harsh on your skin. Generally speaking, I find that a gentle cleanser and a moisturiser is plenty; exfoliation is actually pretty unnecessary and can strip your skin.

Lastly, be careful about how much exposure you're getting to sunlight and anything that may be coming in contact with your skin. Consider the makeup that you're using, in particular. Try experimenting with a powder foundation if you normally use liquid (and vice versa), or a mousse tends to be the least harsh on the skin.


Dear You,
You can make it through this. The clouds will not last forever.
From Me.

Skin issues are typical for individuals of various age groups. Regardless of whether a person is afflicted with creating a hasty, scratchy skin color, epidermis fungi or even disease, pores and skin humps, or pores and skin tags, there’s good treatment method available for several skin health problems. For those who have dried-out epidermis, speak to your medical professional about your skin disease and learn the best ways to scrub, treat, and also protect skin.

Try some other moisturisers.

I get dry skin around my nose too and if it's particularly bad and I don't do something about it, it can look like I've got dried snot under and around my nostrils. Not good!

Vaseline and Fullers Earth cream are my favourite
