  I have really dry skin and whenever I apply makeup, I get cracking on my chin area and around my nose. I've tried a few primers and had no luck. I recently tried the Too Faced Hangover Primer and it actually made the cracking worse. If anyone has a recommendation for a good primer that would stop the cracking and make my makeup last longer, that would be amazing. I'm looking for more of a primer and not moisturizer, :-)

Nothing seems to help!
I have extremely dry skin. I'll try to give as much detail as I can without being too boring.   I'm originally from a more humid climate. I have lived in a new, drier state for five + years and my skin has had enough! My skin is pretty sensitive so I try not to use insane chemicals.   My face is my biggest problem because that's what people see the most. My current routine is to remove my make up with cold pressed coconut oil and moisturize with Vaseline Intensive Care Advanced Repair lotion for face and body (my skin drinks it in and feels soft and smooth for hours and hours afterward). About once or twice a week I do a gentle exfoliating routine but it has literally made zero difference in the result.   Before make up, I apply Feel the Moment Anti-Aging Ultra Hydrating Sensory Awakening Primer Serum by IT Cosmetics. I then use Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50. (I bought yet another foundation and primer to try just yesterday, to not avail.) I don't use powders because they only make the dryness more visible. But already I can see the texture on my cheeks and chin where it looks like my foundation is clinging to patches of dry skin that are settled on the top. I use a beauty blender to apply foundation and other areas of my face, such as my nose, blend beautifully onto my skin. Once I am done with the rest of my make up, I apply Urban Decay's Chill setting spray. I have tried many other foundations, primers, serums, setting sprays, and moisturizers and I don't know what I could be doing wrong.   Before I apply foundation, my skin doesn't look dry at all, but as soon as make up touches my face, even a moisturizing foundation, it seems to instantly reveal dry patches. I did an experiment over winter recess and went nearly two weeks without wearing a stitch of make up on my face to see if maybe my face just needed a break but the day I went back to work, the results were the same.    As far as nutrition: I stay very well hydrated. I drink mostly water and green tea. I eat mostly paleo.   I recently bought several First Aid Beauty products and I gave them a try just before applying my make up yesterday and they made no difference. At this point, I'm worried that I might have to see a derm, but I am really hoping someone would be able to give me some advice  before I have to spend that type of money on a doctor.

Need help with my extreme dry skin!
So unfortunately as the cold weather in Canada rolls around, so does my dry skin. I'm so desperate to find something to help, but everything I try seems to fail. My skin looks flaky, and gross, specially when I put on foundation (Which with my freckly complexion, I need) I've tried Argan Oil, Maracuja oil, Clinique, Aveeno, Origins, and many more. Even going in to the Sephora store, the girls mentioned a bunch of different things, and I told them I had tried them all, and they were still shocked that I had dry skin after all that.  So basically, I'm looking for something to help me. I live in Alberta, and the weather can drop to -30C. My skin gets dry even at -1C! So if anyone has anything that has worked with their skin, PLEASE let me know, I've been searching for too long.

Hello, I'm looking for a recommendation for a Korean brand Toner, Essence, and sheet masks. I have dry and sensitive skin. I'd love something that would help decrease redness, improve skin texture, and be as moisturizing as possible.

Tried and true moisturizer for flight?
I know this has been asked before, but I thought I'd get some more current feedback. My skin (combo, dry)  dries out when I fly and I end up with acne the day after the flight. The last time I flew I wore no makeup and usedGlamGlow Thrirsty Mud, reapplying half way through my 3 hour flight). It didn't help at all. It felt nice going on and for about 30 minutes after, but it didn't do anything to sooth my skin after that and I still broke out the next day. Any other suggestions? I'm thinking Clinique Moisture Surge Intense, but I wonder if that's just another version of the GlamGlow. I'm fine with department store options, but not luxury brands. Thanks!

HELP PLEASE....
I am looking for a great face moisturizer, I have used first aid moisturizer it was ok, but i noticed it would ball up. so my question is which is a better choice from belif , The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb or, The True Cream Aqua Bomb. I have dry skin ,light skin complexion and I am 23. I also have acne prone skin mostly cystic acne, i used to use acne medication topically, but it was making my face super sensitive. I decided to go more natural instead ,now I use purpose face wash, and use 1 part apple cider vinegar and 2 parts distilled water.it has been working, my face is less sensitive and I normally only get about 2 breakouts a month when mother nature comes to visit.

Marula Oil vs. Fresh's Seaberry (Seabuckthorn) Oil?
Hello again all!  I have been noticing a lot of threads on facial oils and finally dove into their glorious world.  I have been doing some research (currently using the Drunk Elephant marula oil) on the different types but haven't found much in the way of Marula oil vs. Seaberry!  I was hoping someone could clear up the difference for me.  I have dehydrated/dry, acne prone, sensitive skin that scars easily so i'd like to use the best oil for my skin.  That being said, obviously, if you have another suggestion that would be great too!    Thanks

Extremely dry under eye + eyelids - HELP!
Hi all!    I'm suffering from some seriously dry periorbital skin. The skin underneath my eye, as well as my entire eyelid, is extremely dry - red, flaking, cracked, dry, peeling, you name it. I have used the same, gentle makeup remover for years now, and even if I stop using this and stop wearing makeup, the dryness persists. I have been alternating between loads of different eye creams - none of which seem to help much. I'm currently using Cerave eye cream (rec'd by my dermatologist) and it helps temporarily, but as soon as I apply make up or wait a few hours, the dryness returns.    I really want to try a new eye cream specifically for moisturizing. I don't want retinol or other anti-aging ingredients that have the potential to dry out the area any more. I'm only 25, and while I have minor wrinkles and dark circles, this dryness is my main concern. Any recs on eye cream (for day, night, or both) would be greatly appreciated!    Thanks everyone!

Dry skin Products- Need help
Hi,  My skin is dry but usually very dry in winter. I have used some of the products like kiehl's midnight recovery concentrate and cream, shiseido ultimune power infusing concentrate, hydration masks and including some drug store products. Nothing seems to make a major difference. Now, I am willing to try Biotherm aquasource line. I have heard about the deep serum and hydration cream gel. Before spending money, I just want to ask, is that a good choice/opinion for dry skin? Or please suggest me some other specific products with serum and cream. Thanks so much!!

Forehead Woes
So generally, I have been blessed with really good skin. I do have the occasional breakout. (I'm fighting a pimple that appeared yesterday on my chin- hopefully it's going to be the only one. But REALLY right before Christmas when everyone will be taking pictures?) But I have been hearing compliments my whole life about my complexion.   Anyway. Lately, and maybe it's a winter thing, but I put on my makeup for church on Sunday. (Yes I wear lipstick CONSTANTLY but I only take the time to put on a full face of makeup a couple of times a week because I have been sleeping in til the last possible minute lately)  Before getting out of the car, I glanced in the mirror and noticed that my forehead was really flaky. It looked terrible.    I put makeup on today too, but I avoided putting foundation on my forehead. And I don't notice any flakiness.   Any ideas? Apparently, I need to become more vigilant in my moisturizing. Sigh.

Switching over to Biodroga MD
Hello guys im going to switch brand from Paulas Choice to Biodroga most because i dont like their PC spf Moisturizers  i use one for sensitive skin right now with spf 30 and with the retinol super antioxidant serum and it **bleep** up my skin. I used that serum with another daycream and never had any problem at all.    I like that serum but in the same time its a silicone serum that can cause break outs. Maybe i stick with it as a night serum maybe not.     Anyway anyone in here who tried Biodroga MD Skin Booster Uv-Protection Cream Spf 30 or 50? I want hydration on my skin and im planing to buy it with the BIODROGA MD SKIN BOOSTER Advanced Formula Vitamin C Concentrate 15 serum you think that will give me enough hydration because i want the spf factor or should i buy an extra   Biodroga MD Perfect Hydration 24-h Care or    Biodroga MD ANTI-AGE Collagen Boost Day Care and switch over to lets say the Biodroga MD Skin Booster intense Moisture serum .     Im asking because Paulas Choice spf 30 moisture **bleep**ed up my skin and i dont liker their moisturizers at all my skin dosen´t feel hydrated more dry and sticky like an irritating glue so yeah no now i switch over to Biodroga MD instead.   So whats your advice?

Foundation for fair, dry skin?!
Hi!   I am having the most trouble finding a foundation in my shade that is good for my dry skin. Over the summer I used IT cosmetics CC cream in their "light" shade and it is much too dark for me now but I loved the hydration and coverage. I tried their "fair" shade and I found it to be too neutral and white of a color. I don't have a color match but my skin is fair (not ghostly white) and I tend to have rosacea on my cheeks which makes me think I might be warm toned. I recently tried the bareMinerals serum foundation in Bare Linen 03 which seems like a good (not great) color match but the serum consistency only makes my dry skin look worse!   Please help! I would love a medium coverage foundation that is buildable. Preferably from a cruelty free brand. Also, any primer recommendations?
