dry, flakey skin?[ Edited ]
my skin latley has been very dry and flaky around the chin, and bottom of my cheeks. i moisturize everyday and all the time... but it wont go away.
i usually have VERY good skin.. but now its oily around the nose, under the eyes, and forehead...
it started a couple days ago just near teh left crack of my mouth.. then it spread up and down and all around. IT SUCKS!!
EDIT: i live in southern california, and the weather is usually VERY good... usually in the 60s or 70s.
i do have exzema, thanks for reminding me.. is that what it could be?
Do you live in a cold, warm, dry, or humid climate? It may be the season change, and it's probably time to switch your skincare routine. Have you tried Origins's toners? Although their toners contain alcohol, it's not drying at all and it may help with the flaky skin. You may want to try getting a few samples. The toners remove a lot of dead skin. While exfoliating is great, sometimes doing too much can be bad for your skin. I hope this helps and good luck!
Hi! For your chin, I would recommend getting CeraVe's pm moisturizer and using it once in the morning and once at night. When I had a small patch of excema (super dry skin) on my cheek, I used this moisturizer twice a day, and within a few days it was completely gone. Since I have dry skin, I now use this moisturizer all over each night, just to prevent dry spots from popping up. You can get this product at most Walgreen's, CVS, and many other drugstores. Hope this helps!
Did you change something in your routine? Did you possibly use a new foundation? Usually that is the trigger for me. Also if you started using new laundry stuff that can cause eczema to flair up and cause problems. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is also great for dry skin and it won't irritate because it doesn't contain a fragrance. I also have found that I need to exfoliate at night or use my Clairsonic at night because when I use it in the morning my skin can have a tendency to look flaky and dry. Hope this helps!
