Why is my skin dry around my nose and how do I get ride of it?
I have two piercings on my nose and I have recently been getting very dry around that area. I put foundation on that are because my skin is red there. I take my nose rings out at clean that area daily. I just peeled dead skin off that area tonight. Is there anything I can do to help it or any product that will help?

Alternative to BareMinerals Purifying Facial Cleanser now that it's discontinued? r
I have pretty dry skin, especially in winter, and it's the only cleanser I've been able to use for years. It is an absolutely lovely cleanser, but now that it's discontinued, I'm not sure what to purchase next. I really don't want to spend $30 on a cleanser, only to have it dry out my skin (or make it ridiculously oily). I don't like the melting cleaners, or the cream-based cleansers. I can't believe BM discontinued a perfect facial cleanser. Any suggestions?

Korres Rose Oil vs. Caudalie Detox Night Oil
I have used Caudalie Detox Night Oil before and I do not remember why I switched to Korres Rose Oil but I got it around summer and now it feels harder to distribute on the face. It definitely feels dryer than Caudalie.   I have had a solid routine with Tidal as my moisturizer, Josie Maran's argan oil and Korres Rose Oil. But my face gets dry in the winter and for some reason it is always the chin. I've gotten samples of some moisturizers: Ole Henriksen Truth Revealed , Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins and PTR Mega Rich Cream. Now I think I like Origins cream but I am not sure about Ole. I always put the oil afterwards.   Also any thoughts on the new PTR Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream? Or Algenist Splash Hydrating Setting Mist?

Best Moisturizer for dry, red skin?
Lately I've been using the Boscia Revitalizing Hydration Gel but I ran out fast and it worsened my redness. Some of my dry patches become flakey during the winter so I use the Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel so I do not need help with that. If it makes any difference my nose still becomes oily alone yet I can handle that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Need foundation for VERY dry and acne prone skin.
My skin is very dry and it is uneven and has some blemishes. I used to use Hello Flawless Benefit foundation and then I didn't want to pay that anymore, so I switched back to drugstore foundation. And it has ruined my skin. So I need to go back to the good stuff. I started using this moisturizer from Clinque and acne wash that is helping but I ned a foundation now.

Looking for new skin care products
Hi there, I currently use m-61 hydroboost serum followed by skinceuticals daily moisturizer. I'm not super happy with the combo, and find my skin needs more hydration. Are there any other products/regimes you would recommend? I'm 39, so anti-aging products would be okay. I typically have normal skin that tends to be dry in winter. I'm low maintenance as far as skin care goes, so 2-3 products that I could use both day and night would be ideal.  Thanks in advance for your help!

Night Cream for Dry Skin?
Sorry, I know there are like a million of these out there and I have read a lot of them but i'm sort of overwhelmed now!    Basically, i'm out of the loop now, I haven't been on Sephora in months now but it's winter again finally and my skin is back to being dry! Thankfully it isn't stubbornly dry, i'm just looking for a good cream.  It doesn't need to specifically be a night cream (i'll just be using it at night), no gels, not Clinique, and preferably not in a jar but i'm not being picky!     A few options i'm considering:  - DE La La Retro  - Kate Somerville Goats Milk - Sunday Riley Tidal (yes I realize it's kind of jelly, but I'm curious!) - Josie Maran Whipped Argan   All recommendations are welcomed!!

Q. BarePro and Itching?
I've been using BareMinerals BarePro powder foundation for a few weeks now. Unfortunately, it's itchy and makes my skin feel tight. I'm not sure if it's the combination of the products I'm using or the BarePro itself that's irritating my skin but I really love this foundation and want to make it work. Here's my morning make up/skin care routine. - Cleanse with FAB's pure cleanser (morning and night) - Tone with Jurlique's rosewater spray (morning and night) - Moisturize with L'Octaine light moisturizer (morning and night) - Prime with BareMineral's original primer - Buff on BarePro - Buff on BareMineral's original Mineral Veil - Finish with Urban Decay's chill setting spray   What do y'all think? Is it the foundation I'm using or the primer?

how can I get rid of this dry flaky skin on the sides of my nose and chin
I have pretty normal skin some acne around my jawline and maybe a little on the dry side but it has never gotten to wear it has been flaky until about 4 days ago. I have tried everything from my clarisonic which I use almost every day even before my nose and chin started getting flaky so I don't think it could be causing it. I also before applying my makeup use a neutrogena sunscreen primer then on top of that I use the laura mercier hydrating primer. Then at night I wash my face with cetaphil normal face wash then use the cetaphil face and body lotion. It still doesn't help and I still end up waking up with flaky skin. What can I do to get rid of it and make my skin look not flaky like it used to be?

PLEASE HELP - very dry skin around eyes
Not to be overdramatic but I take very good care of my skin and the skin around my eyes is SO dry. When I put on my eye cream (amore pacific  http://www.sephora.com/moisture-bound-rejuvenating -eye-treatment-gel-P282612?skuId=1328038&icid2=lp_ ... ) - the skin under my eyes burns. Its red around the outer corner of my eye. It almost looks as though its peeling. It feels a little tight too.   I was also trying murad's eye firming treatment  http://www.sephora.com/eye-lift-firming-treatment- P404007?skuId=1775378&icid2=products%20grid 404007   I've also tried caudalie's  http://www.sephora.com/premier-cru-the-eye-cream-P 280104?skuId=1500842&icid2=products%20grid 280104   It hasn't made a dent in the dryness.    I'm freaking out, I need a deeply moisturizing product for winter.   Please make any recommendations .    I have annoyingly oily skin everywhere else. I have sebaceous filaments as well.    For those who are medically oriented: I have eczema.   Not trying to be dramatic but I spend so much money on skincare and I can't believe this is happening to me despite all this effort.    Thanks very much in advance.

DRY SKIN AROUND EYES & LIPS!
Hi All,   In the past year or so my skin has become very dry. I used to have combination skin but no dryness that really affected me. Now I have dry/flaking skin under my eyes that show when I put makeup on, and dry skin on and around my lips that makes it hard to wear lip products. I have tried many different "hydrating" skin products but the problem seems to persist. The other day I went to the store and was given a sample of Philosophy Clear Days Ahead cleanser and some other products. I used a new beauty blender around my eyes the same day (I am convinced that the dye in the beauty blender may be a part of this problem and will be getting the pure one) and woke up today with swollen eyes, round skin around my eyes, redness, painful dry feeling and flaking skin. I really desperately need recommendations for a cleanser to use to get rid of this problem!   Thank you!
