Winter Time Skin Trauma!
Hey Everyone! So my skin is really sensitive and dry in the winter and I usually just apply moisturizer around my nose because that's where my skin gets really flaky and dry. But over the past few weeks my skin has been getting flakier around my whole face! Its quite strange and uncommon for me because I also have oily skin as well. Do you have any recommendations that could help my dry skin problem that wouldn't irritate even more?! Thank you!
It sounds like your skin is very similar to mine- I have sensitive skin and I am oilier in the summertime, but as soon as cold weather hits I get the flaky dry patches like you describe.
I would also like to recommend Josie Maran's Organic Argan Oil. I love this stuff! I use it all over my face at night (including around my eyes because it does not irritate). I started doing this when I noticed the flakiness on my face like you are noticing and it has really helped. I know it is kind of scary that it is an oil- especially when you have oily skin other times- but this product is really nice. It melts into your skin at night and I wake up with soft smooth skin that is flake free. The oil comes with a dropper for application and you only need a drop or two as a little goes a long way. I also use a drop in my foundation sometimes for a little extra moisturization during the day. And this product works well on my hands and cuticles and on my split ends. It really is a multi-tasker!
You might even want to try the Josie Maran Argan Care for Beautiful Skin set ($56). I have many of her other products as well and they are really good. The Argan Oil alone sells for $48- for $8 more, this set gives you the full size Argan oil along with Cleansing wipes and cleansing oil, lip treatment & color stick (can be used on face or lips). It is a nice way to try out some products from her collection.
I think the Argan Oil might be great for you. Hope this helps!
The best moisturizer in the world in Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil.
I normally only have dry skin outside my T-zone (I have combination skin). However, when I came back from Florida from this holiday vacation to my home in a very cold climate (I'm looking out of my window at snow right now), my skin flaked everywhere. I had been eyeing the Argan Oil for a while, and now seemed like the best time to try it.
I couldn't have bought a better product. It's so lightweight and my skin is so smooth now. It absorbs so fast, so I know your thirsty skin will love it!
