Facial moisturizes? - June 27th 2013, 05:52 PM

Hello everyone I'm looking for some help with any ways of reducing the dry skin and peeling I have on my face.
Ever since I've started taking my tablets (to reduce amount of spots on my face), the side effects have kicked in and my face and lips are no very very dry. The lips aren't so much of a problem because when I apply the appropriate moisturizer to my lips (I use this one called Carmex) it works really well and therefore my lips aren't as dry as they would be ... however it's the skin around my mouth and my cheeks and below my eyes that dries up severely, so much so it's easily noticeable. Luckily I'm not the type of person that would stay at home to avoid people seeing my face, but I do want to do something about it. Can anyone suggest any good creams or moisturizers from past experience? I have tried sudocrem but I don't think it's really working that well and it's a pain as it never soaks/rubs in, yesterday morning I was late for college because I simply could not get it to rub in even when using water. I looked like I had just dipped my face in a snow drift :P

Any advice would be much appreciated thank you so much for reading

I wouldn't use sudacrem on your face anymore since it's not really designed for that

Superdrug have their own brand of dry skin relief cream that works quite well - http://www.superdrug.com/superdrug/s...ml/invt/239163

If you have a Semichem or Savers near you then you could also find Nivea/Dove/Olay facial moisturisers for cheaper too. Just look for a moisturiser specifically for dry skin and that should work fine

Any facial moisturizer made specifically for either sensitive or dry skin should work.. I had the same problem when I was on a medication for my acne, and I used Cetaphil.. I still use it every day after I shower or wash my face, usually at morning and night, and dry skin is no longer a problem.

Feel free to PM/VM me if you ever need someone to talk to, or just want someone to listen. I'm also always up for making new friends.

Personally I recommend (organic) argan oil.

It's 100% natural and ideal for those with sensitive skin.

A little goes a very long way and the skin seems to drink it up.

I get mine on eBay but you can also find it in some health food stores.

It out-performs any moisturiser I've ever used (and I've tried a few).
