dry flaky areas on nose creases??
I don't know what this is, but I just have dry, flaky skin just at the creases of my nose that are particularly visible when I wear makeup (mineral or liquid) and I don't know how to get rid of it. I've tried good moisturizers, but it doesn't seem to work and it's very isolated to just the nose crease. I do have dry skin in general, but a good moisturizer usually takes care of any dryness EXCEPT here. It's not so much "patches" of skin, it looks maybe more like pores that have flaked off or something. It's hard to describe. Maybe I will take a picture. Does anybody know what the heck I'm talking about? lol If so, what skin regiment would you recommend?

NEED HELP WITH SKIN PLEASE :)
Hi Everyone!   So, I have a wedding to attend this weekend. I recently went tanning a few times to get some color before. (I know it's not good) and it has caused my oil/combo skin to be a bit more dry in some places.   Well here is why I need your help! I have been looking so dry on my cheeks and chin under my makeup. While my T-Zone is still on the oily side! What will help me ASAP.   I started using, The Regimen Kit Combination/Oily, by Mario Badescu last night. I used a night cream moisturizer last night by this brand also called Seaweed Night Cream  to help get moisture into my skin, it felt somewhat better.   BUT when I put on my marc jacobs foundation and make up for ever smoothing primer this morning I felt like you could still see the dryness on my cheek and unevenness.   & I am still unsure of a primer. I haven't found my HG! I have acne marks in my skin and indents on my cheeks/forehead that causes it not too look very smooth.    I hope I can find some products that I will fall in love with! I need to look amazing for the wedding!   Thank you in advance!

Q. clarisonic dryness
I was so excited when I purchased my clarisonice Mia. I started using it on Friday.  I was using it twice a day with Philosphy Purity, followed by Clinique Toner and Clinique Dramatic Lotion Gel (I can't remeber the whole name.)  By today, Tuesday (4 days after i began use) my face is SO DRY and flaky all of my chin and cheeks. I have combination skin and usually have a oily t-zone and dry cheeks.  The flaking on my chin and cheeks is unbareable.  It looks HORRIBLE!!!  Has anyone else experienced this?  I read somewhere that I should cut back to only using it once a day instead of twice.  But do you think i should get a stronger moisturizer?  I have been using the cleanser, toner and gel for years and have never had this issue before. I'm afraid I might have to return the MIA!!!

Tinted moisturizer suggestions for fair skin
I am looking to try a new tinted moisturizer, specifically I'd love to try the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. I currently wear the Clinique Moisture Surge tinted moisturizer in shade 01 (Alabaster it's called I think). I tried using the online ColorIQ to see what other products would be a match to this shade but the clinique tinted moisturizer wasn't one that I could select.   Does anyone know what the comparable shade would be in the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer?   Other suggestions for tinted moisturizer would be great too. I have very dry skin, so I prefer something very moisturizing and / or illuminating.    Thanks.

Dry and sensitive skin foundations? Need help!
Hello. I have very dry and sensitive skin. I normally use drugstore foundation like maybelline fit me, but I found that no matter what I use, my foundation always clings and cakes up on my face.

Dry Lip Solution...?
Okay, so I've had dry lips for about 6 months, I'm not even kidding and it is driving me crazy! I've tried every possible lip balm there is and nothing seems to be helping. I even went to the doctor to see if it was an allergy thing and all she said was to keep trying new products until one works. which was super helpful -.- I don't have super dry skin but I do get the often flaky dry patch every now and then. I do however suffer from eczema but i've never had it on my face. Im so desperate for any advice or recommendations because i'm so over spending heaps of money on stuff that doesn't work.

Concealer and Dry Skin
I decided to splurge on the NARS creamy concealer a couple months ago and slowly started to use the concealer not only under my eyes but my eyelids as well for the base. A couple weeks ago I found the inner corner of my eyelids drying out really badly and I just don't know a solution to fix this! Anyone else have a similar issue or any advice? All help will be appreciated!

Hi! I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on these products and your experiences with them. I need a new moisturizer.

Choosing an anti-aging face oil
Hi gals,   I am in my late 20s and looking to invest in a good anti-aging face oil. I have dry, dehydrated skin and want to incorporate something in my routine that can fight skin stressors and maintain the health of the skin for a while.    I was trying to choose between: Caudalie Premier Cru serum/oil, Tata Harper Replenishing Nutrient Complex and Sunday Riley Juno.   Have you used any of the above oils, and could you share your experiences?

T-Zone Dryness?
I have super dry and sensitive skin! My face is most dry/peely in the areas where it really should be oily, like my nose and forehead/ t-zone. I have honestly tried everything. I have used Clinique products, the First Aid Beauty face wash/moisturizer, Fresh soy face cleanser and the youth lotus lotion. Ive tried the Josie Maran creamy oil moisturizer as well as tons of other stuff from sephora and the drug store.   I use a cleansing water every morning and wash my face at night & moisturize 2x a day. I typically exfoliate once or twice a week with a powder like exfoliator from Boscia. My skin is still dry and peely around my nose forehead and chin all year long and I'm so frustrated. If anyone can recommend any products to help, that would be awesome. I can't really wear foundation or anything without it sticking to my dry patches and looking awful.

Frequency of exfoliation + re-applying sunscreen
Hey all you beautiful ladies!   Now that summer's upon us and we are all enjoying the gorgeous weather and the bright colors and slathering on copious amounts of sunscreen as we step out into the day, I have found myself going really low on exfoliation my face. I have dry skin and usually during the rest of the year, I'd use a lactic acid or glycolic acid based exfoliator every other day, or at least every 2 days. But now, I am just skeptical about exfoliating my face and exposing it to the stronger sun rays at this time. I've been exfoliating once every 4 days now.   Is this ok or should I do it more often? Also, do you guys really re-apply sunscreen as you step out of work?  Doesn't that involve an elaborate procedure of washing your face and then applying sunscreen? Is that really feasible everyday?  I'd love to hear tips and tricks people use to make this easier in their daily lives!   Thanks!

Moisture
I just turned 38 and for the past 5 years have noticed my skin drying more.  Prior to this my skin was combination, oily in T, more oily than not overall, with large pores.  I use a Clarisonic to cleanse and changed my facial cleanser to one for dry skin.  This has helped some.  My new endeavor is swimming for fitness and this has made my skin even dryer in spite of me washing my face immediately after and moisturizing.  Would you suggest a proper change for me?

My skin is thirsty
Hello All,    My skin regimen consists of first aid beuty cleanser ( which i feel strips my skin) first aid beauty intense moisterizer( which i feel irritates it more than it should. It feels like my skin is burning, and shiesheido toner which is actually the only product that doesnt irritate and it provides a fresh feeling as well as a healthy non greasy glow. My question is what can i switch in regards to cleanser and moisterizer. I need something for very sensitive dry combination skin. My tone is very pale pink which  works in my favor most of the time but on the crease of my nose and on the sides of my lis the driest areas inhabit my face and peel on their own. I feel as though since i started a skin regimen my skin became drier and now if i stop using products it flakes and becomes drier. Its very frustrating.
